Taking Care Of Your Case After Experiencing An Auto Accident Injury

After experiencing an auto accident injury, it is understandable that one would feel stressed, overwhelmed, and even a bit frightened. After all, you are in pain, the vehicle you need is damaged, and you are facing time away from work but not from your financial and personal responsibilities. Taking care of your case after suffering an auto accident injury can help you get the most from your claim, and knowing just how to take care of yourself first ensures that you don’t make any common mistakes.

Immediately Following Your Accident Injury

Immediately following your accident injury there are some things you can do to ensure your case is being looked after properly. If you are able to, first notify local Florida law enforcement, and have them draft an accident report detailing all relevant information about the circumstances. In your report should be your accident statement, any statement from other involved parties, the road conditions, the area where the accident took place, damages, injuries, and more. This will serve as an accurate and reliable third-party account of the accident that can be used as proof for your insurance provider when you file your claim.

Obtaining witness contact information is the next step in taking care of your auto accident injury. If your injuries do not prevent this, take down the names and phone numbers of any passengers and bystanders who may have been present to see your accident occur. In some instances, you may require witness testimony, and those contacts will make it simple to get the witness accounts you need.

Next, you will want to have your injuries professionally tended to. While some serious injuries may leave you with little choice, those who experience “mild” injuries may make the mistake of skipping medical attention believing they are not actually injured at all. Those “mild” injuries may simply seem less painful due to the adrenaline rush from the accident, and they can prove to be far more painful later on. Waiting to have an injury addressed can be damaging to your claim, so no injury is too small to be investigated and treated professionally as quickly as possible.

After You Have Been Discharged

After leaving the hospital, your post-accident self-care is not over yet. The first call you should make is to a trusted and experienced Florida personal injury attorney, and one that can guide you through the claims process having to do with your accident. It is important to remember that insurance companies are companies first, despite how hard they promise to work for you before you file that claim. That means there is always a chance your insurance provider will deny your claim or provide you with only a low offer, and they will be looking for evidence that allows them to do so. Your personal injury attorney will guide you through the process and ensure that you don’t do anything to unknowingly lower your chance at a fair settlement amount.

It is important to not speak about your accident in any capacity until your claims process is through. Unless you are speaking to your personal injury attorney, all statements should be left to your attorney to ensure that you don’t say the wrong thing. This means no talking about the incident on social media, no talking to others about your case, and forwarding all inquiries about your accident directly to your legal team.

Looking after your case after experiencing a car accident injury can ensure that you have the least stressful experience possible. If you are searching for an attorney to support you through your case, contact our professional team at JusticePays.com today.

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.
