What Should You Do After A Car Accident?

Immediately after a car accident, it is natural to be disoriented and confused, but you should call the police right away so that you establish an official record of the crash. That also makes it easier to collect the other party’s insurance and contact information.

Next, seek medical attention if you think you may be injured. That helps document the direct tie between the car crash and your wounds. Some of the common injuries from car accidents our clients have include:

  • Whiplash and back sprain
  • Fractures and facial injuries
  • Traumatic brain injuries
  • Soft-tissue injuries
  • Spinal cord damage
  • Internal organ injuries

It is important to remember that adrenaline and shock can mask the pain of an injury immediately following a wreck, and some injuries may not have symptoms for several hours or days following an accident.

As soon as practical, you should next report the accident to your own insurance company. Expect an insurance claims adjuster from the other party’s insurance company to contact you, and remember that you are under no legal obligation to give them a statement. It is far safer to let your attorney do the talking for you so that your words cannot be twisted around and used to deny or devalue your claim.

Types Of Car Accidents

Car accidents are an unfortunate reality, and they come in various forms. Each type comes with its own set of challenges and implications. Here is a breakdown of some common types of car accidents:

  • Rear-end collisions: These accidents may result from tailgating, distracted driving or sudden stops. Rear-end collisions can lead to whiplash or other injuries, and they can even start chain reactions that lead to multi-car accidents.
  • T-bone accidents: Also known as broadside or side-impact collisions, these accidents occur when the front of one vehicle crashes into the side of another car, forming a ‘T’ shape. The collisions can be due to running red lights, failing to yield or distracted driving. Victims may suffer severe injuries, including spinal cord injuries, that may require extensive medical care.
  • Head-on collisions: These are the most severe type of accident, occurring when the front ends of two cars collide. They can result from driving on the wrong side of the road, distracted driving or drunk driving. Victims of head-on collisions can suffer severe injuries and wrongful
  • Single-vehicle accidents: These involve only one vehicle and can result from various factors, including bad weather, road hazards or driver error. Victims of single-vehicle accidents may be eligible for compensation if the other party is at fault.
  • Multi-vehicle pileups: These are complex accidents involving multiple vehicles and are challenging to navigate legally. Determining fault and seeking fair compensation can be difficult, but legal representation experienced in handling such cases can help navigate the personal injury claim process.

Victims may be entitled to compensation for medical expenses, lost wages, emotional distress and more. Our experienced legal team, with a proven track record of success in car accident cases in South Florida, can help accident victims understand their rights and pursue a fair settlement.

Why Should You Hire A Personal Injury Lawyer?

Insurance companies are not eager to pay the victims of car accidents, and it takes skill and experience to know how to properly assess the true value of your claim. An attorney can make sure that you receive the full value of your medical expenses, property damages, lost wages, and lost future earnings, and compensation for your pain and suffering.
