What Should I Do if I am Involved in a Car Accident?

Being involved in a car accident is a stressful experience. Most car accident victims are often left disoriented and badly bruised and injured. Consequently, too often car accident victims do not take the time to secure important documents, and gather critical information which impacts the victim’s recovery.

If you are involved in a car accident, these are a few tips that may help strengthen your case:

• Seek immediate medical attention.
• Call the authorities to report the accident. Do not leave the accident scene until you have filed a police report with the proper law enforcement authorities.
• Obtain the names and addresses of the driver and passenger(s) of the other vehicle or vehicles.
• Obtain the names and addresses of any and all witnesses to the accident.
• Obtain all insurance information from the other driver(s), including the name of the insurance company and policy number.
• Document in detail how and where the accident occurred. This will help you remember what happened at the time of the accident, including the areas of your body that were injured as a result of the accident.
• Take several photographs of the property damage to all vehicles and the accident scene.
• Take several photographs of your injuries at the car accident scene and afterwards, whether it’s bruising, swelling, bleeding, etc. Continue to photograph your injuries as some injuries can lead to permanent scarring. These photographs will help communicate the extent of your injuries to the insurance companies evaluating your claim.
• Do not admit fault for the accident (you may not know all of the facts).
• Do not speak to an insurance representative or investigator until you know your legal rights.

Car accident victims should consult with a lawyer before moving forward with their claim. At Conerly, Bowman & Dykes, we are available to take your call 24/7. We also offer Walk-In Wednesdays from 8:30am to 1pm – no appointment required. No obligation to sign up. Contact us today!

Call Us Today Even If You Think the Injuries Are Minor

Too often car accident victims think they can “tough it out” as it relates to the injuries sustained in a car accident. But too often the pain associated with the injuries sustained in a car accident lingers and grows over time. Internal soft tissue injuries are not readily noticeable and usually start producing pain or discomfort in the victim days after the car accident. It is crucial to seek medical attention immediately following the car accident to determine the extent of your injuries. Your health and well-being should be your number one focus.

Tip: When seeking medical attention as a result of a car accident, remember to present your automobile insurance card for medical treatment coverage. Florida PIP covers the first $10,000 in medical treatment.

Your second focus should be learning your legal rights. Our attorneys have extensive experience handling personal injury cases. We are capable to review your doctor’s medical reports, analyze them and prepare insurance demands based on your medical records. If necessary, we also consult with your medical doctors to discuss your injuries so that we may properly negotiate your claim.

What If The Other Driver Had No Insurance?

Sadly, too many people drive their cars every day without automobile insurance or with insufficient insurance limits to cover the costs of your damages. One way you can protect yourself from an uninsured driver is to purchase Uninsured/Underinsured Motorist Coverage for your automobile insurance policy. Surprisingly, most car insurance companies offer reasonable prices for Uninsured/Underinsured Motorist Coverage.

If you were hit by an uninsured driver, or hit by a driver in a stolen car, or even involved in a hit and run, we may be able to collect under the uninsured motorist coverage of your own automobile insurance policy, or possibly find other available insurance coverage to compensate you. Let us help you. Contact our office to schedule your free legal consultation. Personal Injury clients may also contact the 24/7 law firm service at (850) 837-LAWS (5297)

Don’t be discouraged if at first glance there does not appear to be insurance coverage. Consult with an attorney who has experience handling both personal injury claims and insurance disputes. At Conerly, Bowman & Dykes, we are prepared to help you seek just compensation for your injuries from the insurance companies.
