CAR ACCIDENT

Orlando Car Accident Lawyers

Car accidents or any type of of vehicle accident can cause devastating injuries that change your life forever. If you did not cause the accident, who should be held responsible to pay for all of the medical bills and other losses? The at-fault party and their insurance should. Our licensed Florida attorneys can help you seek full and fair compensation for your injury. Insurance companies fight to pay you as little as they can and without a quality lawyer fighting on your behalf, the recovery you get may not even pay for your medical costs. Injuries often times result in lost wages and other losses. You need a lawyer here in Florida to fight for you to ensure you receive full compensation.

DRIVING IN FLORIDA CAN BE DANGEROUS

According to the Florida Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles, there are over 300,000 car accidents in Florida every year. In 2015, there were 374,342 crashes with 630,550 drivers involved. That means there are about 1,000 crashes reported each day.  And some of these crashes are more dangerous than others.  On average, there are over 2,000 crashes involving fatalities each year in Florida.  About 16,000 crashes every year are suspected to be alcohol-related.

Immediately After a Car Accident

CRITICAL THINGS YOU SHOULD DO IF YOU ARE INVOLVED IN A CAR ACCIDENT

If you are in a car crash, first make sure no one in the car is hurt. Next, check on the passengers in the other vehicle, pedestrians and anyone else nearby to make sure everyone is safe. Then do follow these steps:

  1. Stay there. Do not leave the scene. Leaving the scene can have consequences.
  2. Call 911 immediately. They will dispatch police and medical personnel.
  3. Stay safe and avoid conflict.
  4. If possible, also get the name and phone numbers of witnesses.
  5. Take photos and or video of the car accident scene and of the cars involved and their license tags.
  6. Call your car accident lawyer at Normand Law 407 601 6013. Get a free consultation and help reporting the claim to the insurance company.
  7. Together we will call your insurance provider to report the claim. You might be required to notify your insurance company of the accident under your policy, and notifying them is a good way to begin the process of making a claim. But the same advice does not hold true if you are contacted by the other driver’s insurance company. If this occurs, you should decline to make any statements or to sign anything without speaking to an attorney first.
  8. Seek medical attention immediately. If your injuries are severe, emergency medical personnel may take you to the hospital for immediate treatment. Even if you don’t believe that you suffered serious injuries in an accident, you should still see a doctor if you experience any symptoms whatsoever. It is common not to experience symptoms immediately after an accident. It frequently takes hours or even days to feel the physical impact of an accident.
  9. Document the accident. Take photographs and notes at the scene of the accident to document what happened. Ask the other drivers for their contact and insurance information, and ask any witnesses who are willing to talk to you for their names and phone numbers.

Car Safety Tips

Practicing law in the personal injury field, we have helped many people who have been seriously injured in accidents that could have been prevented. We want to advance that everyone should do their best to stay safe on the road. Too often the basics are ignored, like wearing your seatbelt and observing the speed limits. Further, and this should go without saying,  do not drive while impaired, either by alcohol or drugs. Similarly, do not drive when you are distracted or tired. You should also avoid any and all cell phone use while driving.  Here are some additional driving tips to help you stay safe.

  1. Practice “Defensive Driving”: Be aware of what other vehicles and pedestrians around you are doing, and expect the unexpected. Assume other people can and will do something negligent and always be prepared to avoid that negligence causing you and your family harm.
  2. Plan Before You Drive: Add time to your trip even short trips. Add at least 5 minutes to every trip.  Plan to stop for fuel and phone calls. Adjust your mirrors and seat before starting the car. Pull over to eat and do not answer your phone while driving.  It usually takes a few minutes to stop.
  3. Secure personal items that could move around while driving. Do not attempt to pick up items that could fall to the floor. Have needed items, such as change for tolls, within easy reach.
