Sternberg Thomson Okrent & Scher Can Help You

The insurance company for the person that hit your car is not your friend.  They imply compassion in order to settle your case early for a low-ball amount.  They prey on the injured party early in the first few weeks or months when you have not healed and are the most vulnerable.

We will help you get clarity in deciding whether you need a car accident attorney.  In most cases, you will want to have a car accident attorney to get the best settlement possible. We can stop the insurance company from constantly contacting you while you try to heal.  Often injuries develop or take longer to heal then you first think.  It is not until you have healed fully that you can know about the full nature and extent of your injuries, including if you have any permanent damage. Often, you are not aware of the areas of compensation you are entitled to when you are injured by the negligence of others.  You are entitled to compensation for both your financial losses such as medical expenses and lost income, and your pain and suffering, any permanent injury, scarring and disfigurement, loss of support and companionship, and other non-financial losses as well.
