NEED A PERSONAL INJURY LAW FIRM IN Lakewood Ranch? WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW
Your choice of a personal injury attorney may be one of the most important decisions you can make. Without experienced accident lawyers on your side, you may not receive the financial compensation you deserve when you or a loved one has suffered an injury due to someone else’s negligence or carelessness. Whether you need a Lakewood Ranch lawyer to assist with a car accident, motorcycle accident, personal injury, or wrongful death case, be sure to research the law firm’s qualifications, including how long its attorneys have been practicing law and whether the firm specializes in the field of personal injury law. If accident and personal injury cases are not a focus of a law firm, your case may not get the full attention it deserves.
KNOW YOUR RIGHTS IN AN AUTO ACCIDENT
If you have been in an auto accident, it’s important to understand that Florida is a no-fault state; contrary to popular belief, this does not mean that a driver won’t be held responsible for any personal injuries he or she may cause in an accident. It does mean that every operator of a motor vehicle must have Personal Injury Protection (PIP) to cover their own lost wages and medical bills incurred because of an accident resulting in non-permanent injuries caused by either of the involved parties. If, however, an uninsured driver caused the accident, the victim may be left to deal with the effects alone. The result can be thousands of dollars in medical bills, job loss, the costs of rehabilitation, unanticipated costs of future medical care, and much more. Additional factors must be considered as well, including the victim’s pain and suffering, emotional state or mental health, and other conditions that may be the direct result of an accident.
Our personal injury attorneys understand the potential long-term effects on your or your loved ones’ lives when you’ve been injured, and will work to ensure the guilty party pays for their negligent or reckless actions.
AUTO ACCIDENT CHECKLIST
- Make sure you’re safe: Get your car away from the roadway, turn on your emergency lights, and stay near your car away from traffic.
- Call the police. It’s important to file a police report, which can be used in investigating who was responsible for the accident.
- Seek medical attention, even if you believe you haven’t suffered any injuries. Hidden injuries, such as a concussion, may not become evident right away.
- Take photos of all damage and the surrounding scene.
- Call a car accident attorney, who can advise you further on next steps.
