Don’t Make These Mistakes After Suffering a Serious Injury

Suffering a serious injury in a traffic collision in Miami or Florida is traumatic. In this type of situation, you are preoccupied with your medical situation and the trauma of the accident and you may end up making mistakes that could end up hurting you or costing you significant money over a lifetime. If you've been seriously injured, don't make these major mistakes:

1) Don't forget to call a personal injury attorney in Miami or your Florida community. In these situations, personal injury attorney can be invaluable. Even if you don't think you want to file a legal claim, keep in mind that there are many things that a personal injury attorney can do. First and foremost, a legal professional can help you understand how much your case may be worth and how much your injuries may end up costing you. This is important since you may have a hard time evaluating the likely total cost otherwise. A personal injury attorney who has dealt with thousands of similar cases can usually give you a very accurate picture of your financial damages from the accident. This can make it easier for you to evaluate insurance offers, settlement offers, and other options. An attorney can also help you explore those options so that you can make the right decision for you and your family. Most importantly, a personal injury attorney can work with you to protect your rights. If you decide to file a legal claim, an attorney can make sure that you build a strong case and that you don't end up signing away your rights so that you can aggressively pursue compensation that will cover more of your damages.

2) Don't forget document everything. Right from the moment you are in a collision, it is important to start documenting. Exchange contact information with the other driver, but make sure that you also take photos of the accident scene if you can and get contact information of any witnesses. As soon as you are able to, write down everything you remember about the accident including the time, date, and any other details that you remember. If possible, get copies of medical reports, police reports, and take photos of any injuries or damages you have suffered. Consider keeping a journal of your symptoms and expenses and make sure to keep the receipts for any costs that are even remotely related to your injuries. The more information you have, the easier it is for you to claim a fair compensation amount.
