What to do if You’ve Been Involved in Car Accident
The number of serious motor vehicle accidents that occurs each year is staggering. In 2013 alone, more than 2.3 million people suffered injuries and more than 32,000 died as a result of a vehicle crash. Most people have been involved in some type of vehicle accident at some point in their life. There are many different issues that must be handled following an accident and it is important to understand your rights and protect your best interests.
After an automobile accident, regardless of whether it involves a car, truck, motorcycle or tractor-trailer, it is important to talk to an experienced attorney before moving forward with any type of insurance claim. While investigating your claim and the circumstances surrounding the accident, our injury attorneys take the time to
- Gather witness statements
- Review medical records for all treatments, physical therapy sessions and surgeries
- Obtain police reports and photographs from the scene of the crash
- Interview expert witnesses
During this process, the insurance company often tries to limit how much money they have to pay and offer substantially less than the total cost of your injuries and losses. We negotiate on your behalf and obtain full and fair compensation. In the event that negotiations fail to resolve disputes, we aren’t afraid to take your case to trial to ensure that you have the best chance at full recovery. You may be able to recover damages for:
- Medical expenses including current and future costs
- Lost wages for both past and future time out of work
- Physical pain and suffering
- Emotional distress
After a car accident, Florida law limits how long you have to file a claim for the injuries you’ve suffered. Our attorneys are experienced at skillfully handling cases and complying with all applicable Statutes of Limitation.
Throughout the entire process, there are often unexpected challenges and legal matters that must be handled expediently. Our primary goal is to restore your quality of life and help you move in the best possible position.
