Personal Injury

Too many honest, hard-working people are not compensated for their injuries because they didn’t to speak to a lawyer. They weren’t the type of person who hires a lawyer, they told themselves. But others, like those with catastrophic injuries, have no choice but to hire a lawyer. Sadly, they quickly learn how vicious insurance companies are when it’s time to pay up. Stand up for yourself and learn your rights. When bad things happen to good people, Clint & Company can help.

12 Things

This short list contains some of the most important things to remember after you’ve been involved in a car accident.

  1. Immediately seek medical attention if you or anyone else are injured.
  2. Make sure the cars are their occupants are in a safe and lawful location.
  3. Call the police.
  4. Do not make any statements to the other driver other than to make sure they don’t need medical attention.
  5. Take pictures of the damage, the roadway, surrounding areas, etc. Take pictures of physical injuries, when appropriate. It may be appropriate to photograph or video people, but use your discretion. Do not antagonize anyone.
  6. Obtain a copy of the accident exchange of information form from the police. Make sure it contains the other driver’s insurance information and contact information. Obtaining photographs of their insurance card and vice versa is a wise and appropriate thing to do.
  7. If you’re injured, you must seek treatment within 14 days of the accident or else you waive any Personal Injury Protection (PIP) benefits under your own or another person’s car or automobile insurance. These are benefits that you’re entitled to regardless of who is responsible for the accident.
  8. Request copies of all medical records and bills from any medical treatment providers.
  9. Gather documents reflecting lost wages or earnings.
  10. If it might be helpful, a copy of the 911 recording can be easily obtained.
  11. Keep a journal relating to your injuries. Write down what you feel; how it affects your day; things you can no longer do; things that are more difficult now; estimates of the extra time these things cause you to use. These incredibly valuable, but sometimes mundane insights are easily forgotten. Yet they are critical to preserve so you can tell you story much later, at the end of months or years of litigation.
  12. Seek professional help from a Florida personal injury attorney.
