What You Need to Know After a Car Accident in Port Charlotte
After a car accident, there is a lot you should know and understand to get the best outcome for your claim or case. Here are five key facts to keep in mind as you proceed:
1. Dealing with the Insurance Companies on Your Own Can Be Challenging
If you are entitled to compensation under another driver’s policy (or your own uninsured/underinsured motorist policy), you will need to be prepared to fight to recover the financial compensation you deserve. For the best results, we recommend working with an established Port Charlotte car accident lawyer who has the experience needed to ensure you get everything to which you are entitled.
2. Seek Medical Care
Seek medical help immediately and report your injuries. Call your insurance company to report the accident, but do not give them a recorded statement without first calling the Spivey Law Firm, Personal Injury Attorneys, P.A.
3. Your Losses Can Add Up Quickly
From medical bills to lost wages, your losses can add up quickly after a car accident. Victims of accidents may be entitled to recover compensation for past, present, and future medical bills, lost wages, pain and suffering, and the loss of the enjoyment of life caused by the accident.
4. Mistakes Can Be Costly
From ignoring your doctor’s advice to waiting too long to seek help, mistakes can be costly. To protect yourself, you need to make informed decisions and rely on the advice and representation of an experienced Port Charlotte car accident attorney. It will be important that Spivey Law Firm, Personal Injury Attorneys, P.A. start gathering evidence immediately to build the best case for you. Preserving evidence and taking statements are important before evidence is lost and/or memories fade.
5. You Can Get Help from a Lawyer with No Out-of-Pocket Cost
Our fee is based on a percentage of the total recovery that we obtain for you. You do not owe us any attorney's fees or costs unless we recover money for you. There are no upfront costs, and we advance all costs on your behalf throughout the litigation. Our personal injury attorneys take cases on a contingency basis, which means that clients will never be required to pay any attorney’s fees or costs unless their case results in a settlement or trial victory.
