Are My Injuries Severe Enough To Speak With A Sarasota Accident Attorney?
Sometimes after a relatively minor crash, you may be a little dinged up, but it seems like everyone walked away mostly OK. In these cases, more often than not, people tend to think they should handle everything with the insurance companies and get back on track. However, sometimes what seem to be minor injuries are actually major injuries with delayed symptoms. Other times minor injuries can cause major problems in your life. In any case, you should always speak with an attorney after an auto accident.
Always See Your Physician After An Accident
Before speaking with an attorney, it is important that you see a physician after your auto accident. A physician will do some diagnostic testing to help see if there was any damage after an accident. This is very important because many injuries may take days, weeks, and even months to show symptoms. Some of these injuries include:
● Traumatic Brain Injuries (TBI)
● Internal bleeding
● Spinal injuries
● Blood clots and hematomas
● Post-traumatic stress disorder
Seeing a doctor will help you get a diagnosis if you have any of these injuries and start a treatment regime to reduce the symptoms. Going to a physician immediately following an accident is also a good idea because it connects your injuries to the accident. This will be very important if you ever need to file a claim for your accident.
Understanding Damages After A Florida Auto Accident
Most people think that after an accident, the at-fault driver will pay for any injuries and vehicle damage. However, the state of Florida recognizes that injuries can cost more than medical bills. Injuries can impact the way you live. They can reduce your ability to earn an income and provide for your family. They can cause stress on your personal relationships and make it hard to enjoy your favorite hobbies. They can also cause a large amount of stress and trauma response. After an accident, the at-fault driver must pay for all of the damages caused by their actions.
Should I Speak With An Attorney?
We believe that everyone should speak to an attorney following an accident. Insurance companies are not to be trusted to do what is fair. They are interested in making money and paying claims does not make them money. An attorney can help you understand your legal rights, no matter how severe your accident.
There Is No Such Thing As A Minor Injury
All injuries can impact your life. Imagine if you get into a car accident and you twist your ankle. The pain is not terrible and you know you’ll be back on your feet in no time. However, imagine if you also work in construction and now with your twisted ankle, you can’t perform your job duties. You end up losing out on a couple of week’s wages and now you are seriously behind on your bills. These are your damages from the accident. An attorney can help prove that your twisted ankle was caused by the accident and leads to you losing income. They will file a claim for all your damages and help you get back on track.
Always keep in mind that when it comes to accident injuries, there’s no such thing as a minor injury. Some injuries have delayed symptoms. Some can negatively impact your life in unexpected ways.
