If you have been hurt or injured in an auto, motorcycle or truck accident due to the negligent actions of someone else, insurance companies will undoubtedly spring into action to diminish your claim or even outright dismiss it. The other party responsible for the accident will often times be entitled to an attorney provided by their insurance company and you should not have to fight alone.

What to do if you’ve been involved in an auto accident:

Call 911 immediately

Report the accident to law enforcement, do not guess or speculate as to what happened

Take pictures of all damages to your vehicle or property as well as to the other driver’s vehicle or property

Take pictures of your injuries

Be certain to obtain any witness contact information

Do not admit guilt or apologize as these statements may be used against you later

Do not sign anything other than the accident report

Go to your closest emergency room for your injuries

Call an experienced attorney (863) 279-HIRE (4473)

We can connect you with a medical professional if further treatment is needed

Common injuries sustained after an automobile
or truck accident include:

Back injuries

Neck injuries

Shoulder injuries (often times associated with injury from a seatbelt)

Knee injuries

Brain and Traumatic Head injuries

  • Protect Your Rights

After a car or truck accident you must seek medical treatment immediately. Under Florida law, you must get medical treatment within 14 days or failure to do so could result in a forfeiture of compensation under your insurance policy.
