When you are looking for a
Personal Injury Attorney in Orlando, Florida then you want the best and Legally Pink Law is available to assist you
with any automobile accidents you have been involved in. My sister and
I have the worst luck when it comes to car accidents. Between the two
of us we have been involved in 5 accidents (
none of which have been our fault) between August 2011 and November 2012. I have learned an awful lot through
these unfortunate experiences. If you had asked me three years ago, “how
important are witnesses to an accident?” I would have said, “kind
of important.” That would have been an absolute wrong answer. Witnesses are
extremely important and I cannot stress that enough. After you are involved in an
accident, there are four steps you need to take immediately.
1. Call 911 and report the accident.
2. Exchange information with all other drivers involved in the accident
3. Investigate. Seek out witnesses and take photos.
4. Seek Medical Attention.
Number three is essential and many times this doesn’t occur to those
involved because an accident causes chaos and you are unsure of what to
do. However that information will be crucial in order to pursue a personal
injury claim after an automobile accident. When my sister was T-boned,
the driver that turned left into an intersection told the police she had
the green arrow. Although this was not the case, it was a classic “he
said, she said” scenario.
However, since my sister had some experience in this department she went
to the gas station that was at the intersection and asked if they had
surveillance cameras that might be of any assistance. As soon as she told
the saleswoman why she was asking, the woman immediately knew what accident
she was referring to and said she saw the whole thing. This woman gave
a statement saying that the other driver did not have the green light.
Since there was now a witness, the police cited the other driver and my
sister has been compensated through the other driver’s insurance.
Without witnesses, a Personal Injury Attorney may not be able to pursue
your claim leaving you with unpaid medical bills, unreimbursed wage losses
and nothing for the inconvenience and the pain that results from your
injuries. Our attorneys at Legally Pink Law don’t ever want this
to be the case for you and we will work our absolute hardest to bring
your personal injury case to justice.
So after the police are called as well as an ambulance if necessary, take
a moment to think about gathering contact information for witnesses. Legally
Pink Law is available to assist you if you have been involved in an automobile
accident in Orlando, Florida so please give us a call to schedule your
free consultation and see how we can help!
