Orlando Car Accident Claim Attorneys
One of the most important things that you can do after a crash in Florida is to file an auto accident claim with your insurance company. In fact, because Florida maintains a no-fault car insurance system, if you fail to file a claim with your own insurance company – or fail to do it in the required amount of time – you may be unable to recover compensation at all.
File Your Claim as Quickly as Possible
It is important that you file your claim with your insurance company as soon as possible. Not only do insurance companies have specific time frames for reporting a claim, but the more notice that you give your insurance company, the more time they will have to investigate your accident. Further, the sooner you report the accident, the sooner the claims process will begin.
Get Medical Treatment and Determine the Value of Your Losses
When you are working with an insurance company, you want to make sure that you receive the settlement offer that you deserve. However, if you have no idea how much your claim is worth, it can be difficult to determine if an insurer’s offer is fair.
You should get medical treatment and understand how much you will owe in medical bills, as well as how your injuries will affect you. Keep a journal of your recovery, and note whether you are able to return to work and do the things you once loved.
Consider Pursuing a Claim Against the Other Driver
It is critical that you do not admit fault when reporting your accident to your insurance company. While Florida is a no-fault state, you may step outside of the no-fault system if your injuries are severe or cause permanent scarring or disfigurement. If you step outside of the no-fault system, then you will need to prove the negligence – or fault – of the other driver in order to recover the compensation that you deserve.
