What to Do After a Car Accident in OrlandoWhat to Do After a Car Accident: the Critical Basics

There are important steps that you can take after a car accident to protect your rights and ensure that you are able to get the best recovery possible.

First, do not sign a statement or give a recorded statement to the insurance company after the accident.

  • The insurance company generally attempts to get a statement in order to use the statement against you later. If the insurance company can show that you were at fault or partially at fault in the accident, then they can reduce the amount that they have to pay you for your injuries.
  • The insurance company will also try to show that your injuries are insignificant or that you had some pre-existing condition, again for the purpose of reducing your recovery.

Next, talk with a skilled car accident attorney and do not accept a settlement relating to your injuries without speaking with an attorney.

  • Once you accept a settlement, once you cash that check, your claim is finished. Often, the insurance company will offer a small amount very quickly to make a claim go away. By accepting this small amount without the advice of an attorney, you may be walking away from tens of thousands of dollars.
  • Our goal is to get you to a quick and easy resolution to your case. However, our accident attorneys will never sell your case short and are prepared to do whatever it takes to get you the best result possible.

Be careful about discussing your case with anyone other than your attorney and your doctors.

  • Any statements that you give can be used against you in the future. Definitely do not speak with your insurance company about your case, your health or the accident.
  • Also, be aware that whatever you are doing after the accident could be used against you later. So if your back is hurting and your sister asks you to help out with that move, just say no.
  • Be careful about what you post online and in social media. Just like any other statement, those postings could also be used against you in your car accident case.

Another important step that you and your car accident attorney can take is to collect information and evidence from the crash scene including:

  • Witness statements;
  • Information about drivers and passengers involved (including names, phone numbers, addresses, insurance info, license plate numbers, etc.); and a copy of the police report.
  • Take pictures (a cell phone camera will do) of your injuries; of the vehicles involved; and of the general crash scene.

As soon as reasonably possible, detail the scene in writing in vivid terms.

  • Write down in detail as much as you can observe and/or remember. The sooner you document, the better.
