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.

Nicoletti Walker Accident Injury Lawyers

We are all human. We all have a habit of wanting to share information with others. It is human nature. But, that goes completely against the #1 rule to follow after getting into an accident.

You want to tell your friends and family you are okay and you want them to know that you are not hurt. Therefore, if...

You may be injured, possibly severely. Soon after, you find out that the driver that hit you has no insurance coverage.
