The legal system in Florida plays its role in assisting both the parties to determine who is at fault. And the party who is at fault will then be required to pay for the medical and repair expenses. Car accidents are among the most terrifying experiences we can experience, leaving victims with an unparalleled physical and emotional suffering. But soon after an accident, the victim should follow the steps below to ensure that her or she will be able to receive the compensation they deserve.
Step 1: Never leave the accident scene after an accident
Unless there are medical reasons, you should never leave the accident scene after an accident. Especially in situations when someone has received life-threatening injuries. If you leave the accident scene, it’s possible that you can face hit-and-run charges and serious legal consequences.
Step 2: Inform the police
The car accidents often result in serious physical injuries and significant property damages. So soon after an accident, you should call the police, inform about the accident and get a police report filed. If possible, also ask for the names and badge numbers from the officers visiting the accident scene for your record. It’s also a good idea to take as many mobile phone pictures as possible so you can use those pictures later on for things like damage valuations.
Step 3: Consult an attorney
The insurance companies often rush with Early Settlement Offers but you need to make sure you consult an attorney before you agree to any settlement with the insurance company so to ensure you get fairly compensated for all your losses. Call (305) 858-1622 and contact us today to discuss your case.
