So you've been in a car accident. What happens next? There are many things that you should do but here are the three most important:

Number One: See a doctor immediately. 

A broken bone is easy to see, but some injuries are not. The most common injuries from car accidents happen in the neck, back, or head. The only way to diagnose and treat them is by seeing a doctor. A doctor can help ease the pain, provide medication, reassure you of how your injury may impact your daily life, and tell you what not to do to make it worse.

A visit to the doctor can also give you legally protected time off to recover and rest your body after an accident, and it documents and provides the evidence you may need for your case. Even a five-mile-per-hour car accident can cause a serious injury. So whether you've had a severe accident or a minor collision, see a doctor. And if you don't have medical insurance, let us know and we'll make sure that you receive the proper care. 

Number Two: Write everything down.

Even if it seems small, during times of stress or injury it is common to forget the little details. Make sure you keep note of the pain that you're in. With neck, back, and head injuries, sometimes simple activities such as walking up the stairs or picking up a toddler may cause severe pain. 

You may not be sleeping well at night. Documenting how much you sleep and how often you wake up due to pain is also very important. And lastly, if you have any cuts or bruises, take daily photos as you heal. This will provide visual evidence of the injuries that you've suffered. 

Number Three: Do not speak to an insurance company until you've spoken to a lawyer.

Please understand that the insurance adjuster works for a billion-dollar corporation and not for you. Their interests are solely for their insurance company, and their goal is to provide you with the least amount of financial settlement as quickly as possible. When you do speak with them, remember they will record the conversation. Why do they do this? Because they've been trained to ask questions that may confuse you. So talk to us before you talk to them. 

So remember: See a doctor, document everything, and call us before calling the insurance company for your free private consultation. We are here for you. Real tough lawyers fighting real tough issues.

The basis of medical malpractice liability for Florida walk-in clinics

Medical malpractice lawsuits are based on medical professionals that fail to do what they are supposed to do for their patients. Malpractice is a form of negligence; the difference is that there is a higher standard of care that medical professionals are responsible to uphold. Walk-in clinics maximize profits by rushing patients through the process, which often leads to mistakes.

The elements required to win a medical malpractice lawsuit against a walk-in clinic

Prevailing in a medical malpractice lawsuit against a walk-in clinic requires a preponderance of evidence to be proven over several elements. You do not recover damages if our Boca Raton medical negligence attorney fails to prove any one of the required elements. We are tenacious attorneys who have recovered numerous multi-million dollar verdicts from our ability to prove:

  • A duty was owed — When the walk-in clinic accepts you as a patient, they immediately have a duty to your care and medical wellbeing.
  • The clinic breached that duty — Even though clinics are often less formal than traditional hospitals, they still have to uphold to the high standards of care that hospitals are held to.
  • The breach caused an injury — We must be able to prove that the breach of duty by the walk-in clinic was the direct cause of a medical harm to you.
  • Damages — Our Boca Raton medical malpractice attorneys specialize in proving the full and fair value of the injuries you have suffered.

“Attorneys Greg Francis and Ryan Fletcher at Osborne & Francis Law Firm represented me in my personal injury case.The defendant drew a line in the sand and was adamant on a settlement amount I was almost willing to accept. After the dust settled and the smoke cleared, we settled for 3 times that amount!!! When they say ‘Real Tough Lawyers,’ they mean it.”

Quick and fair resolution to a unique case. On advice of my own attorney, I engaged Joseph Osborne of Osborne & Francis of Boca Raton, FL.
