The Benefits Of Hiring A Florida Personal Injury Attorney
In this article, you will learn…
- What evidence to try to preserve at the scene of a car accident,
- Why you should have an attorney contact the at-fault party’s insurance company, and
- When to hire a personal injury attorney.
What Evidence At The Scene Is Going To Be Important To Preserve If You Can And What If You’re Too Severely Injured To Do So?
The evidence you want to preserve at the scene, if possible, will be…
- Photographs of all involved vehicles,
- Photographs of the scene of the crash, including any impacted poles, guard rails, signs, etc.,
- Insurance, registration, and contact information of other involved parties,
- Documentation of any admissions of fault from the other party,
- A copy of the crash report and documentation of any citations issued, and
- The contact information of any witnesses.
If you’re injured, seeking medical attention will and should be your priority. If you are taken away from the scene of the accident for medical treatment before you have a chance to gather any information or take any photos, you may want to contact a Florida-licensed attorney as soon as possible so that the attorney can try to preserve as much of that evidence as possible. Your attorney will be able to send letters to preserve evidence that was taken at the scene by the investigating officer, ensuring that it won’t be destroyed, altered, or lost. Your attorney will know what needs to be done immediately and will be able to take the burden off of you.
What Are Some Of The Risks In Having Any Contact With The At-Fault Party’s Insurance Company?
There are many risks in having contact with the at-fault party’s insurance company. It’s always recommended that you have your personal injury attorney handle the at-fault party’s insurance company or, at the very least, advise you on what information you must or should give to them.
At What Point Should I Hire A Personal Injury Attorney?
Many times, people wait until the insurance company offers an insufficient settlement or denies you’re his/her claim before hiring a personal injury attorney.
However, if you know that you’re injured, it‘s beneficial to have an attorney assist you in gathering, preserving, and organizing all the information and evidence that insurance companies will request to fully evaluate the damages that you have sustained in the accident. Most people don’t know exactly what type of evidence insurance carriers consider when they are evaluating a claim.
