What to do After a Car Accident?

See If You Are Anyone Is Injured

After being involved in a car accident, the first thing you need to do is check if anyone is injured. If someone in the car is injured, the first thing to do is call 911 to have an ambulance arrive. Even if no one is injured, you should call 911 to report the accident and have the police arrive. The police officers will also help to document the accident and you will have the report to give to your insurance company.

Move To A Safe Area

Many car accidents happen in an intersection. These intersections can be extremely dangerous and if your vehicle is operational make sure to get to a safe area where you can avoid getting hit again by approaching vehicles.

Exchange Information

Make sure you take down as much information as possible. Generally, you only need to provide your name and insurance information. The more data you are able to gather, the better. Data also includes getting photos at the scene with your phone, gathering witness information, and notes on how the accident happened. All of the data will help the team at Anderson Trial Group get maximum compensation.

Never Admit Fault

Never admit liability to anyone after the car accident. This can hurt your accident claim tremendously.

Neck Injuries

Whiplash from your head “whipping” back and forth in a violent manner can cause long-term damage

Brain Injuries

High collison crashes can fracture or snap your bones. These injuries can set people back for years.

Extremity Injuries

Injury to the knee, shoulder, and ankle are common. A T-Bone accident can cause injury to knees due to the car smashing into the side of your car. Ankle injuries are caused by the brake or gas pedals. Shoulder Injuries can happen due to your shoulder hitting something inside the car

Wrongful Death

How can You Get Money to Cover these Medical Bills?

In Florida, every driver is required by law to have PIP Insurance. Personal Injury Protection is used to cover your medical bills. If you do not seek medical treatment within 14 days and receive an emergency medical condition, you will not have access to more than $2,500 of your benefits. If you did receive an EMC, PIP can cover up to 80% of your medical expenses or up to 60% of your lost wages. The full PIP amount is $10,000.

Personal Injury Protection can be used to pay for your medical expenses when you have been involved in a car accident. When receiving an Emergency Medical Condition, this would mean you require medical attention or else it can result in a permanent injury. Most insurance companies want to classify injuries as not serious in order to devalue your claim. Car accidents are traumatic and can cause permanent injuries. Seeking medical attention after your car accident is imperative.

Should You Take Legal Action?

As stated previously, car accidents can cause permanent injuries. PIP benefits will not be able to cover you when it comes to these types of injuries. A mere $10,000 in benefits that covers only up to $8,000 of medical expenses will not be able to take care of your injuries for the rest of your life.

But the question is, should you sue? It depends on what our team estimates the value of your case. There are many factors that come into play, such as future medical expenses, future lost wages, lost wages, loss of a loved one, funeral expenses, pain, and suffering. After taking into account all of this into the estimate, more than likely the answer is generally yes.

Why Hire an Ocala Car Accident Attorney?

An attorney that specializes in handling personal injury cases has the experience needed in order to navigate the mysterious car insurance claims. Most people do not know what their benefits are or simply just do not know what to do after they have been involved in a car accident. Most insurance companies want their insured to keep paying their premiums, without having to pay out in claims.

It is simple business, the less claims they have to pay out on, the more money they make. Car insurance adjusters get bonuses for not paying out claims to accident victims. This is a well known fact in the car insurance industry and many people do not know this. Therefore, the insurance adjuster will give you a low ball offer.

Car accidents that result in injuries are also tough. Many doctors do not take patients that have been involved in car accidents in Ocala. In fact, many people do not want to deal with car accident patients because they are afraid that they will not get paid by the insurance company. That is why it is important to have an accident attorney who knows how to navigate this process of finding the right doctors and help fix your injuries.

Getting the maximum compensation and the right care is the most important when hiring a car accident attorney. This is why you should hire a car accident attorney to help you with your claim.
