Immediately following a car, motorcycle, or auto accident you should demonstrate clear, rational thinking to protect yourself and your personal property. There are a number of steps you can take to increase your chances of financial recovery and the amount of that recovery after a car accident case. Our Tampa, Florida car, motorcycle, and auto accident attorney suggests the following steps:
•Insist that a report for car or motorcycle accidents be filed with the appropriate law enforcement agency.
•Document as much as you can about the car, motorcycle, or auto accident or injury itself. Our Tampa, Florida car, motorcycle, and auto accident attorney will need to know every detail about your injuries, any other losses (such as wages) you have suffered as a result of the accident, and any conversation you had with anyone involved in the accident.
•Talk to no one about the car, motorcycle, or auto accident or injuries other than your attorney or physician. You especially do not want to speak with an insurance adjuster. We will be happy to assist you.
•Be sure to take photos of the car, motorcycle, or auto accident scene, including any visible injuries and the vehicles involved.
•Get the contact information of anyone who witnessed the accident who may be able to help prove your case.
•Immediately seek medical attention following a car, motorcycle, or auto accident. Be sure to explain how the injuries occurred to your doctor or surgeon. Mention any sensations of disorientation, confusion, memory lapses, or other conditions you have sustained.
