What to do After a Car Crash in Florida

Have you Been Injured in a car crash?

Liability occurs when a person is legally responsible for the damages of another person because of his or her actions, or failure to act. In a personal injury case, there may be several parties who have liability or responsibility for the car crash. After a car accident, how do you know that you have a case? You may have a case if you can prove several things related to the crash: That a legal duty existed, the other party failed to exercise a legal duty, you were injured directly or indirectly because of a breach of duty, and there was money lost that can be recovered from the other party.

At King Law Firm in Ocala, our attorneys can help individuals that have been involved in a car crash and sustained injuries. Your case is a priority and will be treated with compassion and care. It is especially important to obtain the legal counsel of a personal injury lawyer if you are injured in a car crash, as insurance companies will have their team of adjusters and lawyers that will begin evaluating your accident claim right away. You will find it an enormous challenge to go up against these professional lawyers working for large insurance companies, especially when you do not know all your legal rights.

After the Accident

After your accident, you will file a claim with your insurance company and the insurance carrier for the at-fault party. Florida is a no-fault state, therefore a Personal Injury Protection claim will be opened for your injuries to be treated. You also file a claim with the other driver’s insurance if they are at fault to pay for medical bills and lost wages that are greater than the PIP’s $10,000.00 in maximum benefits. Once the claim is filed, the insurance company determines the value of the claim. They may decide to deny the claim completely. At this point, if your car accident injuries are severe, you will want to hire the best personal injury lawyer. The retaining of a competent and skilled car accident attorney is crucial if you are injured in a car crash. Once you have received medical attention and can seek legal representation, you will be able to fight for your rights. An experienced car accident attorney will make sure that all of the evidence from your accident is preserved. You should always provide all information to the insurance companies through your lawyer. The insurance companies will be notified that you have retained an attorney, and they will no longer be able to contact you. Your attorney will be able to establish and prove the harm that you have suffered, including past and future lost wages, and loss to future earning capacity. Damages may be recovered for future medical costs and future medical treatment you will undergo as a result of the accident.
