Being involved in an automobile, truck or motorcycle accident can be a traumatic experience.
Protect Your Own Interests
Considering the high proportion of automobile accidents in the South Florida area, it is prudent to be cognizant of the procedures to follow when faced with such a distressing incident. Most car drivers are unacquainted with the legalities of dealing with road accidents and how to proceed when personal injury occurs. There are times in our lives when we simply must leave some things to experienced attorneys who handle these matters every day. Failing to consult a reputable attorney could prove very costly and aggravate the situation.
You may think it is just a matter of dealing directly with your car insurance company, but remember, insurance companies are more interested in taking money from you in premiums and not so much in paying out. Seeking legal advice could mean you receive much more in compensation for injury or damage than you would by leaving it to the discretion of your insurers. Protect your own interests and take full advantage of the options available to you when accidents occur.
Keep a Record of the Accident When you are involved in a car accident, the challenge you face is to keep a clear head in the face of the upset this can cause. Before leaving the scene of the accident, take some time to write a description of what happened while it is still fresh in your mind. This would include details of the location, the direction both vehicles were traveling and a description of how the collision occurred. Make sure to record any comments made by the other driver related to injury or any suggestion as to accepting responsibility. These details will assist your lawyer to do the best for you in the situation.
