When should I seek legal representation to recover costs from an auto accident?
Not surprisingly, auto accidents are one of the most common causes of personal injury within the state of Florida and throughout the U.S. The impact of an auto accident can extend far beyond the damages to your vehicle. Unfortunately, there are often long-lasting emotional effects, physical injuries and financial burdens that accompany an auto accident. In addition to auto repair costs, there are also medical bills and lost wages because of time out of work.
You have worked hard to protect and provide for your family. Don’t let an auto accident put your family’s current and future well-being at risk. Let my my 30-plus years of experience in personal injury law work for you to help you recover your costs from an auto accident.
Which circumstances influence the recovery of costs from an auto accident?
Auto accidents are usually caused by reckless driving, including speeding, illegal passing or turning, and tailgating. Driving is further impaired through alcohol consumption, drowsiness, and distractions from the radio or cell phone. All of these factors can be avoided. It’s possible your accident could have been avoided through safe, legal driving.
What should I do if I’m in an auto accident?
After calling 911 and the police come to the scene of the accident, it is important to exchange insurance information with the driver of the other vehicle. It is helpful to take pictures of the damage to your vehicle, the scene of the accident, and your injuries. Seek needed medical attention immediately.
After seeking treatment for your injuries, keep copies of all of your medical bills, including those that are covered by insurance, and your work absence slips. You may choose to write down your concerns about the medical treatment you received or the pain that was caused by your injuries.
Insurance companies may contact you for information about the accident or to persuade you to prematurely accept a financial settlement. Before you speak with an insurance company, contact me. I will make sure that you are not bullied or rushed into making a decision that isn’t right for you and your family.
