Florida is known for its beaches, exciting tourist attractions, and unfortunately…its chaotic roadways. All too often the following scenario plays out on our roadways...Picture yourself on a mildly rainy afternoon and you’re driving on your way to having dinner with a friend at a local restaurant. You get in your car and head off to a good meal, everything is going just as it should, until you reach the red light two streets down the road. As you begin slowing down to stop at the light - “BAM!!!!!” your entire world jolts forward. You hear the crunching sound reverberate through the car and the shock of the impact rolls through your body. You suddenly begin to panic in reaction to the shock. You’ve just been rear-ended. Once your muscles unlock and your dizzy head subsides, you begin to think of all the ways this moment is going to affect your life: How will I pay for this? Am I really hurt? Am I still going to be able to work? How bad is the damage? Is the other person injured? Do I call the police? What's the number for a tow truck? Why are all these people looking at me? The list of frantic thoughts can go on for pages.
Hopefully, as these thoughts are flooding your mind, you remember a video you have seen by the Fischetti Law Group that lists in detail the steps to take directly after an accident. If you haven’t had a chance to download our helpful guide, now is the time to do so. It is incredibly important to take notes and document the scene. It is one of the most helpful ways to ensure a successful case and paint a clear picture of what occurred. Click this link for our accident checklist to ensure you take all the necessary steps.
But remember the biggest step you need to take is to call 833-MIKE-247.
After you have taken all the steps to secure your vehicle and exit the accident safely. Now what? Well, you will need to take a very active role in obtaining a positive outcome over the days and weeks to come. After the initial accident, you must:
GET MEDICAL TREATMENT
You know your body, you feel your injuries, and you know that you need medical treatment as a result of the accident. Even if you don't feel that you're injured right away, there may still be medical problems that need to be dealt with. Remember, most car accidents manifest their injuries 48 to 72 hours after the automobile accident. Not all medical providers are the same and you want a medical provider with the training and experience to properly help your body heal from the effects of a motor vehicle accident. Don’t just go to the first medical provider that pops up in a google search.
It's incredibly important that you get representation immediately. An insurance company has an army of adjusters, lawyers, and a seemingly infinite amount of resources working together to give you NOTHING, or have you sign a release on a lowball offer. Don’t sign anything without carefully reviewing with your attorney. Getting representation is easy, but getting the RIGHT representation is difficult. That is why we pride ourselves on being incredibly transparent, accommodating, and work tireless hours to ensure a stress-free process for you. Give us a call at 833-MIKE-247 for a free consultation and let us help you to get your life back!
