Always Follow These Steps After a Car Accident

The team at Gonzalez & Cartwright, P.A. understands how insurance companies operate, which means we know that you will have to beg and plead for the money you deserve after suffering an injury. There’s one step you should always take if you have been involved in a car accident in West Palm Beach and that is to be evaluated by a medical professional. Whether that evaluation comes on the scene by emergency personnel or at a hospital, make sure all of your injuries are documented. You might not appear to be injured immediately after the accident but there are some injuries that take a day or two to show themselves. This is what’s known as delayed onset of pain. The law in Florida, no-fault, requires you to be evaluated medically no more than 14 days after the crash if you want to move forward with a personal injury case. Do not let the law prevent you from recovering compensation for your injuries. The other steps you should follow after a car accident include the following:

  • Call 911 immediately
  • Check on others involved for injuries
  • Remain at the scene of the accident
  • Take pictures of the road conditions, damage to vehicles, and other items
  • Exchange insurance and contact information with other drivers and witnesses
  • Speak to a West Palm Beach personal injury attorney

Refrain from speaking to an insurance agent or any insurance company employee after being involved in a car accident. You might think you are doing yourself a favor, possibly obtaining compensation quickly, but you might get an offer that is much less than you deserve.

Determining the Cause of the Car Accident Can Help with Compensation Recovery

The only way you can acquire all the compensation you deserve after a West Palm Beach, FL car accident is by assigning fault to the other parties involved. If you are unable to assign fault you will have trouble recovering compensation. Some car accidents can be easy to assign fault because it involved just you and one other driver. But, when there are multiple vehicles involved there will need to be comparative fault assigned, which is determining who has what percentage of fault in the crash. Our team has represented clients who have been injured in the following types of car accidents:

  • Roadway hazards
  • Bad weather
  • Drugged or Drunk drivers
  • Not looking into blind spots
  • Distracted driving
  • Defective car parts

  • Reckless driving
