Tampa Auto Accident Attorneys
Have you been involved in an car accident resulting in personal injury? Has another driver wrecked your car- and your life- and now the insurance company wants to get out of the damage caused?
A personal injury claim may arise when you are injured, either physically or in some cases emotionally, by the negligence or the intentional act of another. Personal injuries are also referred to as "torts." Tort law is a branch of civil law. When a person has suffered a personal injury through the negligence of another person or company, they are generally entitled to recover monetary damages for their pain and suffering, medical expenses, lost wages and other economic losses. In certain limited circumstances, the person suffering the injury can also recover punitive damages.
It is important to follow these three steps if you or your family is hurt from a auto accident:
- Gather Information: Make sure to exchange information with the person or store at fault. Document witnesses and photograph the scene, injuries, and damages that occurred due to the accident.
- Seek Medical Attention Immediately. Having your injuries properly documented can also be a vital part in filing a personal injury claim. Florida law now REQUIRES that you get medical treatment within 14 days in order to use personal injury protection (PIP or “no fault”) insurance.
- You need to contact an experienced auto accident lawyer.
