Auto Accidents

Everyone knows that a car accident can change your life in an instant. Whether it is a high speed collision or just a fender bender, the injuries can be physically, mentally, and financially devastating. Immediately after an accident, you should do the following:

  • Remain at the scene and wait for the authorities to arrive
  • Check yourself and others for injuries and call 911 for emergency medical assistance if needed
  • Take pictures of the vehicles and the accident scene
  • Safely move your vehicle out of the roadway if possible
  • Exchange information with the other driver(s) and complete an accident report with the Police
  • Gather possible witness information
  • If the accident happened in Florida, be sure to receive treatment promptly (within 14 days)
  • Contact your insurance provider and report the accident, however, avoid discussions with the insurance adjuster until you have had time to consult with your attorney

Be cautious when speaking with an insurance adjuster, even if they are from your insurance company. Insurance companies spend countless time and resources training their adjusters to elicit information from you that could negatively impact your case. We have yet to come across an insurance company that has their insured’s best interest in mind. By hiring an attorney, you are putting the insurance company on notice that you value your present and future interests. Remember, you get one shot at recovery. Do not waste it.
