Why Not To Wait To Contact A Personal Injury & Accident Attorney

Hiring a qualified and experienced Personal Injury & Accident Attorney after an accident is a big decision. Many may want to wait or may want to handle the accident and deal with the insurance companies on their own. But, would you try to fix your own cavity? No, you would go to the dentist. Would you try to fix your own broken arm? Of course not, you would see a doctor. Would you try to sell your own home? Maybe some would, but why deal with contracts, buyers, showings, banks, negotiating, and all the other stressful pieces of a real estate transaction? Most would not, they would hire a realtor.

Therefore, if you are involved in any type of accident, whether it be a car accident, motorcycle accident, truck accident, or slip & fall, why would you try to handle it yourself and not contact a Personal Injury & Accident Attorney? Here a few specific reasons why we believe you should contact a Personal Injury & Accident Attorney after you have been involved in an accident.

1. It’s a FREE consultation.

After an accident, there are typically a handful of common thoughts that run through a client’s mind.

- What just happened and who is at fault?

- I need to call the police.

- Am I hurt?/ I am hurt.

- How am I going to get better?

- How damaged is my car?

- How am I going to pay for all of this?

- I need to call my insurance company.

Your mind is racing and to make matters more difficult, many have never been through an accident before and are afraid to make a mistake that could drastically diminish the value and merit of your claim/settlement. At the Nicoletti Accident Injury Lawyers, we offer a FREE no-obligation consultation where we can go over any concerns or questions you may have at no cost. Even if you call us from the accident scene, from the hospital, or anywhere that you need us, we can begin to assist you so your mind can be at ease and you can begin to put your primary focus on getting better.

2. The insurance companies are investigating immediately.

From the moment the insurance claim is filed, the insurance companies assign adjusters, investigators, and attorneys to look into your claim. They want to find any information they can in order to minimize your claim. Allow us to begin the investigation after your accident before the auto insurance company does. Let us work to maximize your claim and help you to get the compensation that you deserve.

3. Your compensation could be diminished. 

Did you know that in Florida you must treat with a medical provider within 14 days or you could miss out on $10,000 in Personal Injury Protection benefits, also known as PIP coverage that can cover medical expenses and lost wages? Did you also know that there is a statute of limitations on a personal injury claim and if you do not act swiftly, your claim will be barred and you cannot recover your damages?

The laws that govern personal injury claims are numerous and can be complicated. Although the laws we mentioned above may be more simple to comprehend, many others are much more difficult to navigate through and are not typically common knowledge. Do not play the guessing game or put your research skills to the test. Allow a qualified and experienced Personal Injury & Accident Attorney to put you in the best position to succeed.

4. Evidence could be lost.

Timing is important when it comes to evidence. Witnesses can disappear before a statement is obtained. Evidence from the scene can be cleaned up. Proof of your injuries can heal due to recovery. All of this evidence must be preserved quickly and correctly to ensure the maximum recovery for your case. Lost evidence could mean less compensation for you.

5. It can cause stress and take away from you focusing on getting healthy.

Often times after an accident, it can be quite stressful. You are trying to get healthy while insurance companies are calling constantly. Forms are coming in the mail that you do not understand in addition to medical bills coming in that are numerous. This is happening all while you are trying to get a rental car and trying to figure out how to get your vehicle fixed in addition to keeping up with normal everyday life. Do not go at this alone and take on all the stress yourself. As we said above, an accident can be difficult to navigate. Allow an experienced and competent Personal Injury & Accident Attorney to take on the process for you, while you just focus on getting better.
