Going the Extra Mile

Notably, I successfully made a case for a bicyclist’s wrongful death despite the offending driver being the only surviving eyewitness and testifying self-servingly he was not at fault. Resourcefully using a surveyor, engineer and doctor to collect, analyze and reconstruct collision scene debris/data, a definite computer simulation for trial was created to refute the driver’s exculpatory story. Play our reconstruction exhibit video to see how the physical evidence “spoke” that the driver actually was inattentive and veered into the bicyclist fatally.

In another wrongful death case that was defended vigorously by four law firms simultaneously, I prevailed at jury trial by using an accident reconstructionist against the offending tractor-trailer truck driver.

Let me do something special for your case too!

What steps should I take after being in a vehicle accident?

Take ten. Too often what happens after the accident affects the final outcome of what happened during the accident. Hopefully you already are on the right track, but be sure to consider the following:

  1. Immediately notify authorities about the accident and the wrongdoer;
  2. Do not decline medical attention offered at or after the accident scene;
  3. Comply with all medical prescriptions, restriction, and follow-up;
  4. Do not discuss the accident with any wrongdoer’s insurer or investigator;
  5. Cooperate with your personal insurance company representatives;
  6. Photograph physical injuries, property damage, and accident scene;
  7. Write down what happened in the accident and what problems you are having;
  8. So not sign any agreement with, or accept any check from, the opposition;
  9. Save all receipts and other documents; and
  10. Contact an experienced lawyer like Mr. Waterman as soon as possible to discuss your case.


Following these simple directions can be the difference between you being revictimized and you obtaining restitution for your vehicle accident.
