Answering Questions On Motor Vehicle Accidents

Attorney Tim Rowe, of , has spent 38 years fighting for clients in Tampa and Naples. With this experience in Florida law, he can answer any of your questions. While much of your case will be dependent on complicated factors, some answers require little background, such as:
What should I do after an accident?
You need to record everything that happens. You want to file a police report. You want to get the other driver’s name and insurance information. If you’re able, you want to take pictures.
And most of all, you want to speak with an attorney. You have many rights, but if you do not understand them, you may take the wrong steps and hurt any potential case you have.
When should I go to the hospital?
You should seek medical treatment if you’re in pain after your accident. However, some injuries do not show symptoms immediately, so it makes sense to get evaluated no matter what. Early treatment is essential for both recovery and your eventual personal injury claim.
I was injured in a car accident; now what?
Now it is time to file a claim. However, this can be treacherous. Insurance companies put great effort into minimizing and slowing down claims. You face a hard uphill battle to get compensation if you say the wrong thing at the wrong time. An attorney can help you through this process.
Should I accept the insurance company’s initial claim?
The problem with accepting an initial offer, even one that seems generous, is that you haven’t had time to see how much your bills are from treatment. Furthermore, an insurance company is in the business of minimizing claims. The first offer from an insurer is typically the least amount of money the company thinks it can “get away with.”
