Immediately call 911 after an accident so that law enforcement can arrive. If possible, exchange the following information with the other driver:
Remember, you do not have to answer any questions from law enforcement or anyone else. The officer may ask you to recount the events leading up to the accident. Only report what you saw, and no opinions on what happened.
We receive a lot of common questions at Florida Injury Law Group and provide this as a guide. However, you should call us to speak to an attorney about your case specifically.
Your attorney will do all of the thorough and detailed work that is necessary to get the best outcome possible for your case. You are responsible for prioritizing your health and healing and following the treatment plan prescribed to you by the physician who diagnosed your injuries. You should also update your attorney with information given to you by any of the physicians treating any of your symptoms, and provide pertinent mailings you receive. Lastly, if the insurance company contacts you then contact us before talking to them directly.
Immediately after your accident, you need to go to the nearest emergency room or visit your doctor, if you have not already, to have your injuries assessed and treated. Additionally, you should take pictures of all of your injuries and continue taking pictures of them as they heal. If you did not take pictures of your injuries immediately after the accident then you can begin recording them immediately. Along with your images, you should keep a pain diary or a journal of your symptoms
Most personal injury cases do not go to trial. Usually, the reason why a case goes to trial is that there is a significant debate regarding the facts, and negotiations have come to an impasse. A good personal injury attorney is going to try to settle your case without putting you through the stress of a trial. A trial could last several weeks, months, or even years before a verdict. Meanwhile, the victim has medical bills piling up and is waiting for a resolution to move forward with their lives.
If your case does need to go to trial, however, then you can be sure that our aggressive and knowledgeable attorneys will be able to fight for you and guide you through the process.
In a no-fault state, both drivers are required to notify their auto insurance provider of the accident and file a claim regardless of who is at fault. In a no-fault state, both drivers carry a percentage of responsibility for the accident. This is why it is very important not to speak very much at the scene of the accident. Anything you say could be used to increase your responsibility for the accident, such as saying things like “I didn’t even see them coming.”
The legal term for the amount of time a person has to file a personal injury claim to receive compensation damages from the liable party is the statute of limitations. These vary by state and by the violation. Some crimes have no statute of limitation because they are so egregious that anyone can report them at any time, and anyone can be convicted of them at any time no matter how long it has been, such as the crime of murder.
But with a personal injury that can heal or be aggravated by work or other activity, a claim would need to be filed in a timely manner so that the evidence is still useful and reliable. This is why in the state of Florida there is a two-year limit from the date of the accident that a person has to file a personal injury claim.
