All of us have or will be involved in a car crash at some point in our driving career.
The biggest mistakes that we see people make when they get into an accident are:
- Talking to the insurance representatives – It is imperative that you not talk to any insurance person, including your own, until you have spoken to an injury lawyer. The sooner you speak to an injury lawyer the better the chances for a good outcome in your case. We are one of the only injury law firms that offer 24/7 availability in an emergency. The sooner you call us, the better the chances for success.
- Not getting medical treatment or a checkup – In order to drive legally in Florida you must have PIP or personal injury protection insurance. This insurance is available to pay your medical bills if you are involved in a car accident regardless of who is at fault. You need to utilize this insurance in order to make sure you are medically “OK”. Many people worry about how they are going to pay for an ambulance and/or emergency room visit; you don’t need to worry because you have this insurance available to pay for these bills. In addition, your PIP insurance will pay for any follow-up medical care that may be required. There are limits to the amount of personal injury protection insurance, but typically most people have at least $10,000.00 worth of coverage.
- Not calling injury attorneys like us as soon as possible – At 24/7 Injury Lawyer Attorney Bruce Kleinberg will personally handle all aspects of your case. In an emergency he is available 24/7. Bruce will meet with you immediately so that you will be getting the proper advice from a lawyer right from the start, not an investigator or a non-lawyer staff member.
