HAVE YOU SUFFERED WHIPLASH DUE TO AN AUTO ACCIDENT?

Port Richey Auto Accident Lawyer

Sadly, during an auto accident, injuries are common. This is especially true for the neck and back. One common neck injury is known as whiplash. “The jolt (or blow to the head) can come from behind, in front, or from the side [and] [e]ven a low-speed collision can cause whiplash.” Pain from whiplash sometimes does not show up right away.

CAN A LOW IMPACT ACCIDENT STILL CAUSE INJURY?

Port Richey Accident and Injury Lawyer

Many might think that just because a low impact car accident has occurred due to a low speed, there will either not be an injury or the injury will be too minor to address.

Speed is defined in three categories. 1-2 miles per hour up to 20-25 miles per hour is considered a “low speed” impact. 25-40 miles an hour is considered a “moderate speed” impact and finally, a “high speed” impact occurs at 40 miles per hour and over.

WHAT HAPPENS IF THE POLICE DO NOT COME TO THE SCENE OF A CAR ACCIDENT?

Nicoletti Walker Accident Injury Lawyers

Whenever you are involved in a car accident, we highly recommend that you call the police. But sometimes, due to a variety of reasons, the police will not come out to the scene.

In that situation, you need to do exactly what the police officer would do. 1. Gather the other party’s information. This includes their name, address, phone number, license plate number, insurance provider and policy number. We suggest that you...

SHOULD I GIVE THE INSURANCE COMPANY A RECORDED STATEMENT?

Nicoletti Walker Accident Injury Lawyers

After an accident, the insurance company will surely ask for a recorded statement. Now, this may seem simple enough. But, you should still answer “no” when being asked to make a recorded statement immediately after an accident, especially without an attorney’s representation. Consequences It is important to understand that although the insurance company requesting the statement may seem friendly, their primary goal is to minimize your injuries and ultimately, the amount of money they compensate you with. The people that take these statements have a lot of experience. They know what questions to ask and know how to use your words against...
