Being injured in a Florida car accident is unpleasant, but it happens all too often. If you were injured in a car accident that was not your fault, you have the legal right to sue for all damages. Here are our top tips for prevailing in your Florida car accident case.
Call the Police
Police will create and submit an official report when they arrive at the site of a car accident. A report will contain information regarding the collision, whether tickets were issued, and (in many cases) the officer’s assessment of what contributed to the accident. These formal police reports may be crucial evidence in your claim later on.
Stay Away from Social Media
In an effort to gather evidence that your injuries are not as serious as you claim or that you are lying about any other aspect of your claim, the defending party and their legal team frequently make attempts to access your social media accounts. Until your case is completely ended, refrain from using social media and do not allow friends to tag you in their posts.
Reject the First Offer
The initial offer they make you is likely to be a low offer. Moreover, it is often offered to you right away in an effort to entice injured accident victims who are in need of money. If the insurance company is unwilling to negotiate a fair settlement, your Florida car accident attorney can take your case to court, which could result in you being awarded even more damages.
