Your Pain is Real. So is Our Dedication
At Spivak & Sakellariou, our seasoned team has handled countless car accident claims, standing firmly with victims and their families to ensure their voices are heard.
Accidents can dramatically alter the course of our lives. Whether you were behind the wheel, crossing the street, biking in your neighborhood, or simply in the wrong place at the wrong time, it's crucial to understand that many often result from negligence, carelessness, or outright recklessness.
The repercussions of such events aren't just fleeting discomfort or minor scratches. The path to recovery is filled with medical procedures, healing, and legal complexities. When you or your loved ones become victims, seeking justice and fair compensation isn't just a choice—it's a necessity.
Fighting for Your Right to Compensation
If you are facing debilitating physical injuries, mounting financial burdens, and emotional distress from a recent car accident, our car accident attorneys at Spivak & Sakellariou are here to assist you in initiating your claim and advocating fiercely to secure the highest compensation you deserve.
Insurers know your chances of a successful car accident claim increase when you hire legal representation. They know that when a lawyer is championing your car accident claim, your compensation could increase by 3.5 times. This understanding drives their desire to steer the narrative, attempting to define and often limit the valuation of your car accident case.

Be Prepared; What to Do After a Car Accident
Navigating the aftermath of an accident can be a daunting journey filled with uncertainties and challenges. While every accident is unique, a well-defined set of steps can significantly aid in safeguarding your rights. As dedicated personal injury attorneys, we've outlined a critical path for those affected to follow in the unsettling moments following an accident.
1. Assess Injuries:
The first thing you need to do before anything else is evaluate your physical condition and prioritize your health and safety. Should you experience severe pain or immediate discomfort or believe your injuries could be life-threatening, call 911 without delay.
2. Document the Scene:
If you are able, gather critical information at the scene, including:
- Make and model of the involved vehicles
- Driver's license details
- License plates
- Comprehensive insurance details
- Eyewitness statements
- Contact information of all parties involved
- Photos of the accident, damages, injuries, and any relevant road signs or signals
- A succinct description of how the accident occurred
3. Contact Authorities:
Reporting a car accident to the authorities ensures an official record, aids in establishing fault, and is often essential for insurance claims and legal protections.
4. Listen to Professionals:
When medical personnel, such as EMTs or doctors, arrive, heed their advice. Their expertise can prevent further injuries and complications.
5. Keep Records:
Post-accident, retain all medical records, diagnoses, treatments, and prescriptions. These documents attest to the severity of your injuries and required care.
6. Seek Legal Support:
If you plan to pursue a lawsuit, partnering with a seasoned personal injury attorney can be pivotal. They will guide you through the intricacies of your claim, ensuring your rights are upheld and that you receive the compensation you deserve.
Accidents are unpredictable, but your response doesn't have to be. Stay informed, stay prepared, and should you need legal guidance, reach out to our team of attorneys. Your well-being and justice are our utmost priorities.

Filing a Car Accident Claim in
If you've been injured in a car accident and wish to pursue legal action, it's important to note that you have 2 years from the date of the injury to file a lawsuit. Should you fail to file a lawsuit within this time frame, otherwise known as the statute of limitations, the state's court system will likely dismiss your case. Delaying filing a claim or lawsuit can be damaging to your case.
