Car accidents can happen in the blink of an eye. One second you may be heading home from work on a regular day and the next, you can be seriously hurt and your car can be crumpled up on the side of the road. In the aftermath of these accidents, you are likely focused on two things: getting medical help and fixing your car.
In the pursuit of repairing the damage done in a crash, you will often have to talk to doctors, nurses, police officers, mechanics and insurance agents. It can be quite a lot to deal with. However, we want to encourage readers to also explore your legal options after an accident even (or especially) if you are overwhelmed.
Discussing your situation with an attorney can be helpful for several reasons. For example, you and your attorney may determine that the party who caused the accident was negligent and therefore can be held accountable for damages.
An attorney can also be a valuable ally when you are trying to get your insurance claim accepted. Insurance companies are out to make money by denying or delaying claims and some may resort to questionable or unlawful practices to do this. Without experience working with insurance companies and an understanding of Florida insurance laws, people can lose out on money they deserve.
Many people also find themselves enormously frustrated when it comes to resolving disputes with other parties, including insurance companies, hospitals and negligent parties. Having legal representation can send the message that you are serious about getting things resolved and are prepared to fight back if necessary.
