Your first step after a Miami Beach car accident is to seek medical attention. Be sure to call 911, and request an ambulance. Don’t think that just because you don’t feel hurt, you aren’t hurt. Adrenaline can mask injuries after an accident, and there are some injuries that won’t be evident for days.
A medical professional is the only one who can properly diagnose your injuries and help you get the treatment you really need. Plus, without a medical report, you may not be able to file a personal injury suit down the road.
While you’re on the scene of the accident, be cautious about what you say to the other driver. If they ask if you’re okay, never give a definitive answer; after all, you’re not a medical professional!
Don’t apologize for the wreck, and never say it was your fault. At most, you should exchange contact and insurance information, and wait for the police to arrive to give your statement. When you do give your statement, only give objective details of what happened.
Who should you call after an accident? Once the police are on their way, you need to speak to an attorney to discuss whether you have the right to file a personal injury claim. Your first instinct may be to contact your insurance company to report the accident, but you need to first consult a lawyer who will help you gather the right details of the incident to use in your case.
Your insurance company’s primary goal is to get you to accept a low settlement offer. Your attorney’s goal is to help you get the amount you deserve, and in many cases they will negotiate with the insurance company on your behalf.
