If you have car crash injuries, there are several time critical decisions which must be made quickly, which will greatly impact your recovery on the case.
Here is an outline of the things you need to do quickly:
First, you must see a physician as soon as you can to document and to diagnose your injury. PIP coverage in Florida will not pay for some bills if you delay seeing a doctor. Even if you think the pains will heal by themselves. Frequently, this is not the case. You should consult with a physician experienced in treating car crash injuries.
Next, you should contact your insurance company. Notify them of the fact that you have been involved in a car crash and will be making a claim for your car crash injuries. Any failure to timely notify your insurance company of the existence of the claim may result in your insurance company denying you benefits.
Then, you should photograph the damage to your vehicle to preserve evidence. Show everything involved with your car crash injuries.
Finally, you should consult with an attorney experienced in the area of personal injury law. This is probably the most important decision you will make. If you retain the Dawson Law Firm to represent you, we will help guide you through the entire process. Including, the important steps of selecting an appropriate doctor, contacting your insurance company, and preserving all the evidence necessary to present your case in the most effective light.
The question of how long it will take a case to resolve is difficult to answer in a paragraph. There are numerous variables that could affect how quickly a case resolves. Small injury cases can resolve quickly. However, the greater is the injury, the more complex the liability, or other factors can cause a case to take longer to resolve. The most important thing to remember is it’s not how quickly your case resolved it’s how well it resolved is you have to live with the result of the case for the rest of your life.
Attorney referral services make no effort to evaluate the attorneys they recommend cases to and usually work with attorneys who participate in the cost of marketing. This is a dangerous way to hire an attorney. A far better way to hire an attorney is to utilize any of the many Internet evaluation sources or to simply screen the attorneys yourself by viewing their websites.
Always be wary of an insurance adjuster telling you that you don’t need a lawyer. They are not looking out for your best interests, as they are employed by the insurance company and are seeking to save the insurance company money. As a consequence, you shouldn’t take legal advice from an insurance adjuster. It would be like the bag handler at the airport telling you that you can fly the plane.
