Things to Think About When Considering a Car Accident Lawsuit

Car accidents are terrible events. They can involve other cars, trucks, motorcycles, bicycles, sometimes even multiple vehicles. In many cases, personal injuries can be severe and debilitating.

Any time an airbag goes off in a car accident, there’s a good chance of broken bones, eye damage from broken glass, perhaps even an urgent trip to the hospital, either by being flown in or via ambulance.

If you’ve been injured in a car accident, make sure that you seek medical treatment immediately, especially in Florida. Florida law gives you just two weeks to seek medical attention after a car accident in order to make a claim under Personal Injury Protection (PIP) Insurance.

If you are able, take pictures of the accident and get contact information for any witnesses. Sometimes it’s going to be your word against theirs, so you need to protect yourself as much as possible.

Is the other driver insured?

Another consideration is uninsured motorists. That’s very important because sometimes if you’re hit by somebody who’s not insured or has very low insurance and you need surgery, that’s not going to cover the bills. So uninsured or under-insured motors is very important for you.

How Do I Get to Work When My Car is Totaled After a Serious Car Accident?

What happens next is you’re faced with the realities of life and find yourself asking…

Do I have a vehicle to get to work?

Is my insurance going to fix the vehicle?

Are they going to total the vehicle?

Who pays for the rental car after an accident?

When the initial dust settles, you must deal with getting a rental car so that you can get to the doctor, get to work, get to the grocery store and take care of your family.
