Motor vehicle accidents affect the lives of many people. In 2009, the Florida Department of Transportation reported that there were over 235,000 traffic accidents in the State of Florida, which injured approximately 200,000 people, and unfortunately killed an additional 2,500. There are many causes of motor vehicle collisions, such as speeding, failing to obey traffic laws and using cell phones, as well as bad weather, roadway hazards or poorly maintained vehicles. Regardless of the cause of the collision, your life, as well as the lives of others, will be changed dramatically, if you are injured in a car accident.
After an accident occurs, you will likely have many questions. How do I get my car repaired? Am I entitled to a rental car? Who is going to pay for this? Who is going to pay for my medical bills? If I miss time from work, will I be reimbursed for my lost wages?
Which doctor should I see to help me recover from my injuries? What type of doctor is best for me? Should I go see my family doctor or a medical specialist? Will I require some special medical tests to diagnose my injuries?
Should I talk to an insurance company? Should I provide a recorded statement or complete numerous forms? Should I accept a settlement offer, if one is made?
The best decision you can make before doing anything is to speak with a lawyer and ask all of these questions. This will insure that your rights are properly protected.
