Be Mindful Of These No-Nos After An Auto Accident

An auto accident can happen to anyone, any time, and anywhere. It is possible for them to occur to a person while they are close to home or away for business or pleasure. The events can be quite devastating. In fact, research from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety, Highway Loss Data Institute shows that there were 34,247 fatal motor vehicle crashes across the United States in 2017. The study also reveals that Florida accounted for 3,112 of those fatalities.

Not all wrecks are so disastrous, but the point is that they can be. On some occasions, participants are able to walk away from the events without a scratch. However, more often than not, drivers and passengers are left with injuries. No car crash is the same though. Hence, the damages will vary from one incident to the next. Several of the more common injuries associated with auto accidents include...

• Broken And Fractured Bones
• Burns
• Lacerations
• Traumatic Brain Injuries
• Internal Organ Damage

If an individual loses his or her life in the crash, and he or she is also the family's primary breadwinner, the household is left full of uncertainty. They don't have any money coming in, yet they are responsible for medical expenses, funeral costs, and past debts. Meanwhile, when a person becomes injured, they can go through monetary woes as well. These individuals tend to have lost wages from missing work. It can be difficult for them to pay for everyday obligations as well as doctor visits, ambulance transports, and more.

The Legal Solution That You Need

Florida is a no-fault state, which means both parties are considered to be to blame for the incident. Still, one person may be more responsible than the other. Proving such fault is easier said than done, especially with insurers attempting to manipulate the cause of the event. They do so to avoid paying out a substantial sum. In other words, the entire process is complex and can seem overwhelming.

Without Further Delay, Things Not To Do After An Auto Accident

Avoid Being Confrontational

A person can easily become angry after a car crash. However, it is of the utmost importance for the individual to remain calm, cool, and collected. The only thing participants should be worried about is the health and well-being of everyone involved. Nothing good will come from tempers flaring and getting out of control. Rather, the actions are the fuel to the fire of road rage incidents.

Don't Leave The Scene

Regardless of how minor an accident may appear, it is never okay to leave the scene. Instead, the driver needs to stop, check on other persons, exchange insurance info, and contact the police. Failing to do so may leave you in hot water with law enforcement officials. So, stick around, provide first aid as necessary, and don't just drive away.


Client Testimonials

Attorney David Goldman has been exceptional in the process of helping me through the case. He has always been easy to reach, whether by phone or email, and has thorough knowledge and explains clearly in depth so you feel safe and confident in your lawyer

I used Michael Babboni and his paralegal, Nicole Moore for a legal matter. They went above and beyond my expectations. During the entire process there was constant communication with both Michael and Nicole. They were extremely organized and on top of my case, which I am very grateful for. Michael truly had my best interests at heart and he was very genuine. I plan on referring Michael to all family and friends and will continue to use him in the future.

I dealt most with Mr. Fernandez. I didn’t know a lot about this process. He took the time to speak with me individually, in person, to explain everything. It was very helpful to actually know and understand the process and what to expect. He closed my case quickly, which was nice that it was not prolonged! I appreciated his hard work and getting me what I felt I deserved after my car accident. I highly recommend him to anyone who needs an honest and reliable lawyer to assist you with your case!

I hired Mr. Walsh after an automobile accident this past March. He and his entire staff were extremely professional. They kept me informed every step of the way and settled my case in a timely manner. Thank you so much for your help.
