Actions To Take After The Accident
The steps that you take immediately after an automobile accident will go a long way in helping your personal injury case go smoothly if you’ve been hurt in the accident. Here are some actions to take and some to avoid:
- Get medical attention right away, and have your injuries documented, with photographs.
- Take photos of the scene, and get information from any witnesses, as well as contact information from the other drivers.
- Always make a police report.
- Don’t admit fault, and don’t even talk about the accident with the other party.
As soon as you’re able, contact an experienced law firm like Finnell, McGuinness, Nezami & Andux P.A.. We’ll investigate the details of your case.
Auto Accident Injuries
There are many ways to get hurt in an auto accident, and some of them are life-altering. Common injuries can include:
- Facial cuts
- Injuries to legs and arms that require amputation
- Back and neck injuries requiring surgery
- Traumatic brain injuries
You need a lawyer who understands what kind of compensation goes along with each type of injury so that you can win the amount that you need and deserve. An experienced law firm like Finnell, McGuinness, Nezami & Andux P.A. will fight for the maximum compensation you can get.
What Florida’s No-Fault Insurance Law Means For Your Claim
As you likely already know, Florida law requires all vehicle owners to carry personal injury protection (PIP) insurance coverage of at least $10,000. After an accident, each driver’s PIP policy pays for the costs of treating their injuries (up to policy limits), without regard to who was at fault. If you want to pursue a lawsuit against the at-fault driver for more than PIP limits, your injuries must be considered “serious” under Florida law. Our attorneys understand these statutes inside and out, and we’ll help you evaluate all of your legal options.
Dealing With Insurance Companies
You may as well know from the beginning that the auto insurance companies are not on your side and will initially offer you a settlement that is less than what you deserve. That is why it’s smart to hire a lawyer. Don’t get wrapped up in conversation with anyone from the insurance company, because their agenda is to deny your claim or settle for as little as possible. Call an attorney who’s really on your side, and let them deal with the insurance companies. You’ll be glad you did.
