After an Accident?

  • Contact law enforcement and seek emergency medical help for immediate attention. Try to obtain any photographic evidence or contact information for any witnesses and ask them to stay until help arrives.

  • Contact Jones & Swanson to discuss your case. Do NOT sign any documents or accept any money from an insurance company before speaking with our injury lawyers.
