Those who have been involved in a multiple vehicle accident often make a few basic errors that can end up costing them tens of thousands or even hundreds of thousands of dollars:
1) Not contacting a personal injury attorney. Even if you have excellent insurance, in many cases you will only have part of your medical expenses, long-term medical costs, lost wages, and other expenses covered by insurance. If your injuries are severe or permanent, especially, it is likely that insurance carriers will undervalue your claim because the cost of your claim will be so high. A personal injury attorney in South Miami or your community can help you review your case to find out whether you need to pursue a legal claim or negotiate with your insurance carrier in order to get fair compensation.
2) Saying anything that could be construed as accepting blame or placing blame at the scene of the accident. At the scene of the accident, it is important to stick to facts only. Even saying something as simple as “I'm sorry” can be construed as accepting blame or liability for the accident. The best response is to ask “Are you okay? Let's exchange contact information and we can figure this out.” Keep your language is neutral as possible to avoid legal hassles down the line.;
3) Not getting immediate medical attention. If you are lucky enough to walk away from an accident, you may assume that you've sustains no injuries. Unfortunately, this is not always the case. Some types of injuries tend can take days or even weeks to develop symptoms. Some take several hours to develop symptoms. Whiplash, for example, may not become apparent until a few days after your accident. A life-threatening brain injury that could prove fatal may not cause you a headache or any other symptoms until a few hours after the accident. Even if you think you have sustain no injuries, it is a good idea to err on the side of caution and to get an immediate medical evaluation following your accident.
