When a cyclone dropped Dorothy and Toto in the Land of Oz, Dorothy realized she was no longer in Kansas but knew nothing about the magical world around her until the Good Witch gave her advice.


The classic story highlights the whirlwind and confusion that often occur after an accident like a car crash. Everyday people are faced with challenges trying to understand and navigate a complex legal system. That’s where Seeskin Law LLC comes in, taking to heart a lawyer’s responsibility to serve as the calm after a storm, and educating and informing those impacted by a horrible situation.


If you or a loved one find yourself facing your own cyclone of an accident, there are simple steps you can take to contribute to your own best outcome:


  • Call 911 and report any accident to the police immediately.
  • Take photographs before leaving the scene of the accident, if possible.
  • Get medical care right away. Even if there’s a long wait at the ER, stay until you are fully treated and discharged.
  • Contact the insurance companies to report an accident and receive claim numbers.
  • Do not give a recorded statement when speaking with an insurance company.
  • Do not sign paperwork without calling a personal injury attorney.
  • Call a personal injury attorney even if you think you ‘aren’t that injured’ or can handle this yourself or are unsure if you have a case.
  • Follow your doctor’s orders and be consistent with your medical care.
  • Receive a doctor’s note authorizing you to take off work if your injuries require it.
  • If you are considering filing for bankruptcy or are in bankruptcy proceedings, call a personal injury attorney and disclose your personal injury claim in your bankruptcy documents.


If you ever have a question, please consider me a resource. Pick up the phone, send an email, or visit my firm’s FAQ page where you can also learn what to expect in personal injury cases and what legal words actually mean. Consider me the Good Witch. I’m here to help.
