How Much Will An Auto Accident Attorney Cost Me?
Being involved in an auto accident can make a lot of impacts in your life. There are impacts on finances, work, physical abilities, mental health – the list can feel overwhelming in the aftermath of an accident.
When you’ve been injured in an accident because of the negligence of another person, that overwhelming list also includes trying to convince the at-fault person’s insurance company that they need to cover your expenses related to the crash.
What starts out as a task that is a bit overwhelming can easily turn into something that feels like a monumental challenge – and can even leave you feeling infuriated.
If you’re not sure you have the time or patience to work through the maze of paperwork and phone calls that are required when working with insurance companies – or if you feel like you aren’t being treated fairly – you may benefit from working with an experienced lawyer.

There will be no hidden fees at the end. And knowing that we don’t get paid unless you win, we are extra dedicated to getting you the maximum policy limit for your settlement. Extra incentive for us pays off as exceptional work on your behalf.

What Should I Do If I’m Involved In A Car Accident?
When you’re involved in a car accident, life can seem very scary. It can be hard to know what to do and how to get help. The car accident attorneys at Ritchie Reiersen Law in Lake Tapps suggest the following steps to take after an auto accident:
- Call the police. A police report of the collision can go a long way in establishing fault and liability when it comes time to deal with the insurance companies.
- Take pictures and get witness statements. Take pictures of all vehicles involved. Again, when it comes to negotiating with insurance, this helps prove damage. Witness statements can help when trying to prove fault and liability.
- Contact insurance companies. Usually just a phone call is needed to open a claim; contact your own insurance company as well as that covering the at-fault person. They will let you know what else they need.
- Take care of yourself physically. Don’t wait to seek medical care – this can give insurance companies ammunition to deny a claim because they can say it wasn’t a result of the accident if it wasn’t treated right away.
- Consider consulting a personal injury attorney. Once a claim is opened, the process of proving fault, assessing for damages, and negotiating for settlement begins. An experienced personal injury attorney can expedite and streamline this process because it’s what they do – all day, each day.
