When to Call a Lawyer After a Car Accident

Car accidents happen all the time. According to the FHSMV (Florida Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles), there were over 400,000 reported accidents in 2018 alone, with over 254,310 injuries. With car accidents frequently occurring, many require assistance from a Jacksonville personal injury attorney.

Whether you are at fault or the victim of a car accident, legal advice from a personal injury lawyer in Jacksonville can prevent you from making mistakes that could damage your claim. Don’t wait too long to consult with a lawyer, especially since injuries can worsen over time.

We always advise contacting us following a car accident. Below are some specific situations where a lawyer will assist you following an accident: 

  • If it is unclear who caused/is responsible for the accident. 
  • If you do not know how to determine the damage. 
  • If you do not know how to prove lost wages. 
  • When an insurance company makes you an offer you think is unfair. 
  • If you need to negotiate a settlement. 
  • If an insurance company is requesting medical records from before the accident.  
  • When the cause of the accident requires expert investigators or witnesses. 
  • If an insurance company denies your claim or makes a low offer. 
  • If the other party involved files a lawsuit against you. 
  • If you are injured. 
  • If you are temporarily or permanently disabled from the accident. 
  • If someone injured is a minor. 
  • When your loss is harder to prove. For example, you can no longer care for a dependent.

After an accident, injured or not, you are likely going to feel shaken, stressed, and will be unsure what steps to take. It can be difficult, at first, to determine the long-term consequences of an accident. Soon after the mishap, you will want to consult with a trustworthy and experienced personal injury attorney. During your consult, you should inform your attorney of as many details as you can about the accident. Be sure to consult with this attorney before discussing the accident with representatives of an insurance company and especially before you sign any paperwork.
