You may assume that you don't need a personal injury attorney after your traffic accident. In almost all cases you do need legal advice if you have been injured. You may think that you have not been seriously injured or that your injuries will not be expensive or that insurance will take care of it. For far too many personal injury plaintiffs who have been seriously injured in a traffic accident, all these things may end up not being the case.
The reality is that it is very difficult for a layperson with no legal background to navigate the compensation and insurance claims process by themselves after a serious injury. Even if you have simply suffered a fracture or a back injury, the costs may end up costing you tens of thousands of dollars out of pocket in lost wages, medical expenses, and other bills. You may find that insurance undervalues your claim, denies your claim, or otherwise doesn't cover the full costs that you face after a serious car or truck accident.
In addition, you may find that your injuries end up being more expensive than you realize. Medical costs in Florida are quite high and you may not even know the full extent of your injuries for days or weeks after your accident. If you accept insurance money in the interim, you may find out only too late that you have signed away your rights but haven't secured all the compensation that you need to pay for your injuries.
Don't let this happen to you. It can easily lead to financial distress and even bankruptcy, so contact a personal injury attorney immediately. A personal injury attorney can review your situation and can help you understand the likely total cost of your injuries. A personal injury attorney can also help you explore all your options for pursuing compensation. Depending on the specifics of your situation, you may be able to negotiate with your insurance carrier, file a legal claim, or pursue other action to ensure that you get compensation for your injuries.
