Auto Accident Attorney in Altamonte Springs, FL
If you are injured in a car accident in the State of Florida, make sure to go to a hospital or doctor immediately. If you wait for more than 14 days, your car PIP insurance might not cover your medical expenses. Also make sure to call the police to have a police report. Take photos of the vehicles if possible. Make sure to call your insurance company as soon as possible to report the claim. Make sure you do not give any recorded statement or sign any documents to the at fault insurance company without first contacting a lawyer. Also, make sure you check with your insurance whether you have Uninsured Motorist Coverage and Underinsured Coverage, this will protect you in the event the other driver does not have Bodily Injury Coverage. Also, have Comprehensive and Collision Coverage for your vehicle—very important. Call Attorney Jonathan Torres.
Often immediately following an incident, the insurance claims adjuster contacts you and wants a written or recorded statement. It is usually a bad idea to give a statement to the other side’s insurance company without consulting with a lawyer. The insurance company adjusters are generally very nice and friendly, but it is their job to give you as little money as possible and collect evidence against you. Before talking to the insurance companies of the at-fault parties, it is important to get medical attention and determine the extent of your injuries. Only then will you and your personal injury lawyer be able to devise an amount to ask for in a settlement demand letter. Your attorney can negotiate with the large insurance company adjuster and get you the compensation you are legally entitled to. If you are unhappy with the amount of the offer, your personal injury lawyer can file a lawsuit.
Car wreck injuries can be very serious and lead to permanent disability, high medical bills, and more. All drivers are expected to use care when on the road. It doesn’t matter whether you were hit by a car, truck or bus. If the driver was at fault for your injuries, they should be responsible for your medical bills.
