Things To Expect Following An Auto Accident In Lakewood Ranch

So, you've been involved in a car crash in Lakewood Ranch, now what? A lot of people want to know that same thing, especially if they've never been in an auto accident before. However, you don't have to be one of them. Instead, you can review this article to gain an understanding of what to expect after an incident.

Of course, some things will vary. After all, no two car crashes are the same. Nor do people treat them the same. But still, hopefully, these tidbits will prepare you for what's to come should you ever find yourself in the middle of a collision.

Injured Or Dead Parties

Sometimes, people can walk away from Lakewood Ranch crashes with nothing more than minor scrapes and bruises. However, on other occasions, participants aren't all that lucky. Instead, they sustain severe injuries like fractured and broken bones, traumatic brain injuries, etc. Hence, don't be surprised if you see people with these things following an accident. It is also possible for individuals to get killed in these events, so one or more deaths may enter the picture after a crash.

Minor To Severe Property Damage

Property damage is something else to expect after a Lakewood Ranch automotive accident. If the collision is a mere fender bender in a parking lot, the two vehicles may only have minor dents and dings. However, when the matter is more significant, like, let's say, a T-bone in the middle of an intersection, both cars can be left looking like shells of their former selves with crunched doors, hoods, and more. Just don't let the banged-up rides take you aback. Know what to expect, and, with any luck, you'll be prepared for the property damage that comes with accidents.

Disgruntled Or Pleasant People

It's hard to say how people are going to act after accidents. Some drivers are nice and pleasant to deal with after crashes. They know that there is no point in getting riled up, as that won't help anyone. Yet, in other instances, motorists become angry and agitated, almost to the point that they want to fight. It is in the best interest of everyone for Lakewood Ranch residents to keep their composure following auto accidents, though. Road rage doesn't do anything for anyone, except for maybe get an assault charge thrown on a person. There's no telling who you'll meet after a crash, so be prepared for it to go either way.

No Work And Expenses

It isn't uncommon for accident victims not to be able to work after crashes. Their injuries simply prevent them from fulfilling the duties of their jobs. That means there is no money coming in, and as if that wasn't enough, it gets worse. Severe wounds usually require medical care and physical therapy. Thus, if you get hurt in a Lakewood Ranch car crash, there's a good chance you won't be getting paychecks. Plus, you'll have additional bills piling up.

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.
