After an automobile accident, many individuals find themselves confused on what the next step may be. From recovery, to property damage, to providing for themselves and their family, the next steps after an accident can feel overwhelming and scary. However, it does not have to be. Hiring an attorney can greatly reduce the burden on an individual so that they can focus on their healing process.
Many individuals wonder whether they need to hire an attorney after an accident or whether they can just settle on their own with the insurance company. However, far too often insurance companies will not offer you the compensation you need for your injuries. It is important to speak with an attorney before speaking with the insurance company.
Your personal injury attorney can assist you in many aspects, including:
Investigating the crash;
Collecting evidence, such as police reports, medical records;
Determining what parties are liable for the injury, which could be more than one party; and
Making demands on your behalf.
Florida law allows for different types of damages that arise due to an automobile accident. Medical expenses can be recovered, and can include ambulance fees, hospital, physician and chiropractic fees. Lost wages can also be recovered when your injury has prevented a party from returning to work. Damages for pain and suffering due to the accident may also be recoverable.
