How to File a Car Accident Claim

Making Your Case and Pursuing Maximum Recoveries

After being struck by a negligent driver or motorist, you probably already know that you will need to file a car accident claim. Do you know that how you file it could make a huge difference in your chances at receiving a fair financial recovery, though?

At Ochs & Klein Attorneys, P.C., our St. Louis car accident lawyers can help you from start to finish with filing your car accident claim. We have 50+ years of experience and a prestigious AV® Rating by Martindale-Hubbell®, so you know that you can trust us with your case, regardless of the challenges or obstacles that might be presented.

Do Not Contact Your Insurance Company First

Insurance providers frequently tell their customers that they need to be told as soon as possible about any car accidents or traffic collisions you might be in. While it is true that you should notify them quickly – same day is ideal – you should call our law firm first. If you notify your insurance provider right after your accident when you are still nervous or shaken, you are more likely to say something that could put blame onto yourself. This will dramatically reduce your chances at obtaining correct coverage. When you work with our legal team at the earliest possible moment, we can analyze your incident and determine the best way to bring the case to your insurance provider’s attention.

Our goal is to provide you with a settlement or recovery that helps you pay for:

  • Vehicle repair or replacement
  • Initial medical bills
  • Necessary rehabilitation programs
  • Missed wages due to time spent recuperating

    “I strongly suggest you hire this company.”
    There are a lot of attorneys that claim they can do xyz, but this company actually puts the work in and gets the job done. They do what is best for the client even if that means they will make less money and that is what I suggest you hire them. I have never worked with a firm before that actually put the client first. I strongly suggest you hire this company.
