If you have been injured in the State of Florida, either in a car accident, a slip and fall injury, a dog bit, a motorcycle accident or a boating accident, through someone else’s negligence, you are certainly entitled to have your medical bills taken care of ( either by your own Personal Injury Protection part of your auto policy or other means), but you may also be entitled to other compensation.
There are some important steps you can take to protect yourself when an injury occurs:
1). Try to take pictures of any property damage ( car, motorcycle or otherwise) and even of your injuries while they are fresh. As many pictures as can be taken of the situation will defray any false information given in the future.
2). Be sure to get the names of all persons involved and any witnesses, as well as exchange any pertinent insurance information.
3). Call local authorities to make a report, for example, local police or State Highway Patrol. A report will be very advantageous to your claim as people forget things or see things differently, and if you are injured, you need to do everything you can to protect yourself and your claim.
4). Make any statements of injury to the authorities, BUT DO NOT MAKE ANY STATEMENTS TO INSURANCE COMPANIES without contacting Your Personal Injury Attorney, Steen James Brown at 407-344-3400.
Good Personal Injury Attorneys work their cases on a contingency basis, which means you pay them NOTHING unless they recover a settlement for you. Therefore, Your Personal Injury Attorney in Orlando will be honest with you about whether or not you have a viable claim. Whereas, you cannot count on that with an Insurance company.
