I contacted Mike Ranzenhofer and he got started the process of getting money for me for my pain and suffering and future medical bills. Every time I called or came to his office he always took his time to help me. And we eventually won the case. He is an amazing lawyer and person himself and I would fully recommend him to anyone.

        Steps to take after an injury

        First, it’s very important to make sure you’ve documented exactly what happened with your accident or injury. The date, the time, the names and addresses of those involved, as well as details of what happened are critical components that you’ll need as you try to work through the problems you’re having. If you’ve been in a car accident, we already have a checklist you can use. You can see the checklist at our Car Accident Checklist page.

        Secondly, you really should contact an Injury Attorney in Buffalo as soon as possible….because the other party’s Insurance Company is probably already working behind the scenes…and preparing to defend its client.

        Contacting an accident attorney is really very simple – and for your case, it’s a Free Consultation. I’ll provide the accident and injury help you need by spending time reviewing the facts with you to be able to tell you what possible remedies you have and make suggestions on how to proceed.

        We Help Auto Accident Victims

        America’s car accident problem is phenomenal. And it’s no different here in the Buffalo and WNY area.

        Whatever the reason is, that number is almost the same number of people who died in the Vietnam War. On top of that, about 3,500,000 are injured in car accidents.

        The actual cost of these accidents total more than $150,000,000,000 yearly. These absurd statistics will give you an idea of why Friedman & Ranzenhofer dedicates so much of their time to their car accident clients.

        If you have been hurt in a car accident, or have lost a loved one due to someone else’s recklessness, you may be entitled to financial compensation from those responsible.

        In order to file a claim against another driver, you must show proof that he/she failed to act responsibly while behind the wheel. The lawsuit is meant to restore the injured person or persons to the positions of health they would be in if the accident never occurred.

        Though money can never reverse a serious injury or even a death, it can at least compensate for the suffering that should not have occurred in the first place.

        How Auto Accident Awards Are Won

        See our Car Accident Checklist

        Cases are won and lost on the evidence from the accident. The following information should be kept for your future use in case of an accident:

        • The other driver’s name, address, telephone number, and date of birth.
        • The other driver’s license number and insurance company name, including their policy number.
        • The attending police officer’s name and badge number.
        • If there were any witnesses at the scene you want to have their names, addresses and phone numbers.
        • Make sure you see a doctor or visit a hospital to document any injury.
        • Jot down notes regarding the car accident as soon as possible.
        • Put together a diagram of the car accident – make sure you note the street layout, arrangement of the vehicles and location of witnesses.
        • And get a photograph of the car accident scene if possible so you can document damage to the vehicles, and any of your injuries.

        Generally, auto accident injuries include: head, neck, and back injury, whiplash, paralysis, joint, muscle or bone injuries, and brain injury.

        In order to make a car accident claim, you must provide medical records that show the injuries were the direct result of the accident.

        Usually, accidents are handled by the individual’s insurance company, and solved rather quickly. However, it’s important to remember that insurance companies are a business.

        At Friedman & Ranzenhofer, PC our Buffalo car accident lawyers advise our clients to follow our “Golden Rule” when dealing with insurance companies – and that is….

        The insurance company is not your friend. Their ultimate goal is to make sure they pay out the least amount of money possible. And they do just that by putting a team of adjusters, investigators, and attorneys to work immediately.

        The insurance company is always represented by an experienced car accident lawyer. If you choose not to be represented by a qualified attorney, you will face a very powerful company – by yourself.

        And here’s something else to keep in mind….insurance companies pay nearly three times more money in cases where you, the victim, has a lawyer.

        If you are an auto accident victim, you may be too overwhelmed by physical and/or emotional trauma to even think about your rights – or the future.

        At Friedman & Ranzenhofer, PC our attorneys make your interests our number one priority and don’t settle for anything less than fair compensation.
