Why Do I Need a Lawyer?
Understanding the legalities around a car accident can be confusing and frustrating. An experienced an attorney can help in numerous ways. An attorney will know:
- How to gather the evidence most relevant to your case
- What legal causes of action you may have against those who have harmed you
- Who may be potentially held liable for your injuries
- To what types of compensation you may be entitled
Additionally, an attorney may consult with experts to calculate the amount of compensation to which you may be entitled. They can also speak with other attorneys, insurance representatives, and other professionals to ensure that you are not pressured into taking a settlement for less than you deserve.
After an accident, you should focus on healing, not a lawsuit. Let an attorney worry about the law and securing compensation for you.

Cases We Handle
Our practice at the Law Offices of Ronald J. Resmini is focused on personal injury law, including car accidents. Car accidents can happen under a variety of circumstances and have the ability to leave the victim and their family dealing with many short- and long-term consequences. Unfortunately, car accidents are somewhat common on U.S. roadways. Every year in the U.S., over 32,000 people die in car accidents, and another 2 million people are injured or disabled.
Some common causes of car accidents include:
- Driver Error
- Driver Distractions
- Reckless Driving
- Negligent Driving
- Manufacturer Defect
- Poorly Maintained Roadways
- Debris on Roads
- Hazardous Construction Sites
- Faulty Road Design
While these are some causes of car accidents, this list is not all-inclusive. In some instances, a car accident can be caused by numerous factors and more than one party may be at fault. Determining fault and liability can be challenging. When the government is a party to the lawsuit, such as in an accident caused by road conditions, the procedural and legal technicalities can be even more complex. Additionally, taking on a large corporation, such as a car manufacturer, can complicate the legal claim. The experienced attorneys at the Law Offices of Ronald J. Resmini can help no matter what the details of your accident are.
What You Should Do After A Car Accident
If you have been involved in a car accident, there are certain steps to take to help ensure your safety and help your legal claim go as smoothly as possible:
- Move to a safe place if your car is fine to drive and it is possible; if not, stay put. If you are involved in a multi-car accident, stay in your car until all cars involved have stopped moving.
- Stop your vehicle and get out, unless it is unsafe to do so, or you are injured too badly to move.
- Check on other parties involved in the crash and see if they need assistance.
- Contact the police, even in a minor a crash, as a police report can be very useful in a future insurance or legal claim. Be honest and cooperate with the police, but do not admit fault or blame others at the scene.
- Collect information, including:
- Driver and passenger names from all vehicles involved
- Contact information for all witnesses
- Name and badge number of responding police officers
- License plate number
- Insurance information
- Makes and models of all vehicles involved
- Date, time, and location of the accidents
- Photos of the scene and damage to vehicles
- Seek medical attention, even if you do not feel badly hurt. Sometimes, injuries are not immediately apparent, such as with head injuries. Be sure to keep track of all your medical paperwork for your claim.
- Contact a car accident lawyer. The sooner you get in contact with a lawyer, the sooner they can start collecting evidence, interviewing witnesses, and putting together a compelling claim for you.
If you were unable to complete any of these steps, do not panic. Contact a lawyer from the Law Offices of Ronald J. Resmini as soon as possible and we can figure out the best legal course of action for you.
