    Chong’s Answer

    First, you should seek medical attention to make sure everyone is fine and to receive instructions on how to proceed with your injury. Then you should consult with an experienced auto accident and injury attorney for a free consultation. You should hire the attorney who you and your girlfriend will be comfortable working with for up to the next three years or longer.

    Chong’s Answer

    If you were at fault, you do not want to contact the other driver. You should not contact the other driver. You want to say a little as possible to protect you. Instead, you are doing the right thing by deciding to contact your insurance company.

    You should not be posting your personal information online where the other people involved or their insurance company can view your information. Secondly, if you haven't done so already, you should contact your insurance company and open a claim with your insurance company if there were any injuries or damages to the people and vehicles involved.

    Chong’s Answer

    Yes, you definitely want to contact a car accident injury attorney near you. Additionally, you want to go see a doctor about your injury. You don't want to wait too long to get medical attention because your conditions could worsen and the insurance company may not view your injuries as serious the longer you wait to see a doctor.

  • Two year window, rear end collision. Unable to get any cash settlment because I didn't know what I had to do.

    I want to know if I can still do something about it.

    Chong’s Answer

    You can try to resolve the claim if the 2 year statute of limitation has not passed and you suffered injury from the rear end collision. However, I strongly suggest that you meet with a personsl injury lawyer for free initial consultation.

    Chong’s Answer

    For most contigent fee agreement, litigation begins at the time when the attorney has to file the Summons and the Complaint to the other driver. Now, that can change from lawyer to lawyer, but that's pretty standard. You should look over the agreement and you should talk to your attorney if you are concerned. Additionally, whether it will go to trial or not is dependent on the severity of injury and whether the insurers are willing to offer the policy limit prior to suit.

  • Can you be arrested because someone said they think you may have preformed a hit and run with no eye witness's

    also i don't own a vehicle an there is no evidence and should i get an attorney before i speak to the police.

    Chong’s Answer

    You can possibly be arrested, but being charged with a hit and run is another story. I agree with my colleagues, do not speak to police until you meet with an attorney. Avvo is a great resource to find an attorney near where you live.

    Hi, I been in a car accident two weeks ago, the other car rear end me when my car was stopped at the intersection. Where can I get the city intersection copy of city video cam, there was cameras on the intersection on all 4 corners, porobably it r...

    Chong’s Answer

    You should meet with an experienced auto accident and injury attorney for a free consultation. I agree that you can try to obtain the video by making a request with the city, but I also agree that these videos will not be available for too long. Unless the liability is clearly being disputed you should focus on getting well and recovering from your injuries. Again, with these types of injuries and accident, you should think about hiring an accident and injury attorney since they will make sure the insurance company will not take advantage of you. Best of luck.
