Auto Accidents

If you are injured in a car accident the most important things to do are to call the police, seek medical attention and preserve evidence. The preserving of evidence is one of the most important things to do if you are involved in a car accident.

The police do their best to take down the names of witnesses and photograph evidence but the attorneys at Mestemaker & Straub will be doing so with your best interest in mind.
