I was in a car accident and have no idea what to do! Help! At Tittle & Perlmuter, we hear this constantly from new clients contacting our office. Unfortunately, your actions immediately following a car accident can make or break your case. A few rules to live by following a car accident are the following:

  • Stay at the scene and call the police. Even if the accident isn’t serious, the police should be called and a report should be filed. When speaking to the police, it is important to stick with the facts – do not speculate.
  • Take pictures with your cell phone or other camera. The pictures should include the damage to both vehicles and the scene.
  • Make sure that you have the other driver’s pertinent info, including, but not limited to, driver license information, license plate number, and insurance information.
  • Finally, and perhaps most significantly, seek medical attention as soon as possible if you are injured! If you delay treatment, insurance companies will often see use this as evidence that you weren’t truly injured as a result of the accident.

  • I was in a car accident. The insurance company only offered $2,500 to settle my car case. Attorney Allen Tittle took the matter to trial, and after four days, obtained a jury verdict of $75,000 which is 30 times more than what I was offered. He fights for his clients and obtains justice. I would highly recommend him.
  • Allen was professional, conscientious and well organized. Allen's research of my case produced results in which he was able to obtain a copy of a video from the grocery store and subpoenaed a witness that substantiated my claim and proved that I was in fact struck by the vehicle and injured, which he presented in the deposition. This resulted in a successful settlement in my favor
  • What I liked best about Tittle & Perlmuter was the prompt return of phone calls, always knowing when paperwork had been sent, and knowing I could call anytime and get my questions answered.
