    Steps to Take After Your Auto Accident

    It can be difficult to know what to do after your auto accident, but that’s why your local Riverview auto accident lawyer is here to provide you with guidance. Before you come to us, there are steps you can take after your car accident to set yourself up for the best legal defense.

    If you or someone else on the scene has been injured, then your first step is to get medical attention. Even if it’s a small injury, you’ll want to document the treatment so you can be compensated for it later.

    If the accident was severe, if you don’t know who caused it, or if anyone was injured you will need to call the police. When they arrive on the scene, be sure to also ask for their names, badge numbers, and the case number on the report for later.

    Your car insurance company will be covering your injuries and car damages, so you’ll want to report the accident as soon as you can.

    If your car isn’t driveable, you’ll need to call a tow truck to take it to an auto repair shop. Be sure to record the driver’s information and keep track of the towing cost as well.

    You’ll want to document the interior and exterior of both cars, road conditions, the location, weather, and any injuries if you’re able to. These photos and videos will later be used as evidence when negotiating your insurance claim.

    Before you even call your insurance company, you’ll want to call a lawyer. They can instruct you on your next steps and what you should and shouldn’t say to your insurance company, the police, and the other driver.

    Protection Against Your Insurance Company

    While Florida’s insurance laws may be in place to protect you, insurance companies are mostly looking out for themselves. At Papa Injury Law, we are familiar with their tactics and know how to protect you from them so you can get the amount you deserve from your insurance claim. Here are some of the ways Riverview auto accident lawyer David A. Papa will protect you.

    Fight Against a Rejected Claim

    Although they could be liable for investigating your claim in bad faith, your insurance company might reject your offer even if it’s reasonable. They do this in hope that you’ll settle for a lower amount. However, in this case, we can file a complaint and make them pay punitive damages.

    Refuse a Low Settlement Offer

    Often after a car accident, your insurance company will offer a settlement that won’t cover all your expenses. They are hoping that you will accept it while you are still in distress so that they can settle your case quickly and as cheaply as possible. David A. Papa knows that this amount won’t be enough to cover your expenses and will negotiate for a higher settlement.

    Take Them to Court

    If your insurance company is still rejecting your claim we can and will take them to court. There we can argue your case in front of a third-party judge and when we win, your insurance company will be forced to pay you a proper amount.

    How David A. Papa Will Maximize Your Settlement

    While you may be worried about getting the best offer from your insurance company, we’re here to tell you that you don’t have to. Your local Riverview auto accident lawyer David A. Papa knows how to get the most out of your settlement, and here’s how he’ll do it for you.

    The expenses you have to pay now aren’t the only ones you have to worry about. A car accident can have financial repercussions far into the future. These are the expenses that David A. Papa will include in your insurance claim negotiations. He knows how much your injuries cost and how much your compensation is worth, and he’ll make sure you get the amount you deserve.

    After your auto accident, you’ll need to provide evidence if you want the most out of your insurance claim. This is called meeting the burden of proof, and the criteria of an insurance claim include:

    • Duty of Care: The at-fault driver had a responsibility to prevent accidents and possible injuries.
    • Duty Violation: The at-fault driver didn’t fulfill their duty of care, resulting in injuries and damages.
    • Cause and Effect: Their negligence directly caused your injury and damages.
    • You Suffered Damages: Because of the accident, you have lost wages, medical expenses, damage to your car, etc.

    At Papa Injury Law, we are very familiar with these standards and know what evidence your insurance company is looking for when supporting your claim. By hiring David A. Papa, you can not only take the burden of proof off of you, but you can also maximize your settlement.

    Did you know a simple, “I’m fine” after a car accident can cost you hundreds, even thousands in insurance money? David A. Papa does. That’s why he should be your first phone call after your auto accident. He can advise you against recorded statements, against talking to the other driver, and prevent you from saying the wrong thing to the police or your insurance company.
