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.
