At Legally Pink Law, we’re interested in keeping you safe after an
accident and helping you achieve a full recovery. Some of that recovery
can include monetary damages to compensate you for the lost time at work
and the personal property damage you sustained.
If you’ve been in an accident, here are 5 steps to take:
Call 911 and report the accident. No matter how minor, call 911 to report
the accident. If you don’t, the insurance company can use the
absence of a 911 call against you.
- Exchange information with all other drivers involved in the accident. Collect
tag numbers, license numbers, and insurance company information from every
driver involved. Collect tag number immediately, because at-fault drivers
may try to flee the scene.
- Find witnesses and take photos. Get contact information for witnesses who
saw the accident. Take photos to show the accident happened.
- Seek Medical Attention. Don’t delay. Get medical attention immediately.
You may not realize the full extent of your injuries.
- Do NOT Discuss Injuries With The Insurance Company. Report the facts of
the accident (what happened) to your insurance company but do NOT discuss
your injuries. Even if you feel all right, it could be that the adrenaline
from the accident makes you feel better than you should. The insurance
company will use any statement that you’re fine against you. If
they ask, say “I’m not sure.”
No matter what the circumstances may be, contact your Orlando personal
injury attorney for vigorous representation as soon as you’re able.
We’ll begin working your case immediately and we’ll be sure
you receive the care and compensation you deserve.
