What to Do After a Car Accident?
All motorists in the Orlando area should be prepared for the possibility of getting into a car accident at some point. No matter how cautious or experienced a driver you may be, all it takes is one negligent driver to cause a potentially serious collision.
So, what are some things you should do after you’re involved in an accident? First and foremost, make sure everybody is okay. Even if you don’t have any obvious injuries, it’s a good idea to seek medical attention. Oftentimes, injuries like whiplash won’t have any immediate symptoms because of the adrenaline flowing through your system after the accident. Seeking medical attention after a collision will legally protect you if you happen to develop any symptoms or injuries later on—especially when you consider that Florida law requires those involved in an accident to seek medical attention within 14 days in order to be eligible for insurance coverage/compensation.
In addition to having a medical assessment after an accident, it’s important that you file a police report if an injury has occurred or if the accident caused $500 or more in property damage. Be sure to obtain a copy of the police report and begin the process of filing a claim with your insurance company as promptly as possible. You also won’t want to delay finding an experienced accident attorney to represent you before you make any settlements with the insurance company.
How an Orlando Car Accident Lawyer Can Help?
All too often, auto insurance providers do not have the best interests of accident victims in mind. Instead, they’re focused on paying out as little as possible. This is where having a knowledgeable Orlando car accident lawyer on your side can make all the difference. Even if you’ve already received a settlement offer from the insurance company, consulting with an accident attorney will help you get a better feel for how much your case is truly worth so you don’t leave money on the table.
Specifically, our car accident lawyers can represent you as you seek financial compensation for:
- Medical expenses – Doctor/medical bills related to your accident and treating your injuries.
- Property damage – Costs related to repairing your vehicle or other damage to your personal property (including replacement, where relevant).
- Lost wages – Compensation for income you may have lost out on if you were unable to work as a result of your car accident injuries for any period of time.
- Pain and suffering – Compensation for emotional distress and mental anguish caused by your accident.
- Punitive damages – Additional damages sometimes awarded in situations where the negligent party’s actions are deemed by the court to be malicious.
