If you have been involved in a car accident, seek medical attention as soon as possible. Unfortunately, many people do not see a doctor the same day they are involved in an auto accident. In the hours after the car crash, going to the E.R. seems even more traumatic, so accident victims delay getting medical attention. Sometimes, people do not get medical treatment because they believe this will hurt their car accident claim, but that is not the case.
When you seek maximum compensation for serious injuries caused by a car accident, contact our injury lawyer, Sean M. Cleary, immediately after you get medical treatment to help you recover compensation for your damages.
It is better to go to the E.R. immediately after a vehicle accident, for plenty of reasons, including:
- You could have a severe soft tissue injury or another bodily injury and not be aware
- You will receive treatment quickly
- It will help your accident case when you later file your insurance claim for your severe injuries
Also, suffering from PTSD after a traffic accident is a very real situation. If you are experiencing emotional distress following a motor vehicle accident, you should see a therapist.
If you are still wondering whether you should call our accident lawyer or try to fight for your car accident case on your own, this article will answer your dilemma. If you find yourself in one of the following situations, do reach out to Sean M. Cleary.
Your Car Accident Injuries Are Severe or Permanent
Many automobile accident cases do not cause serious injury, and consequently, you might avoid getting assistance and prefer to settle the claim with the insurance company on your own. However, not all minor injuries should be neglected because, in time, they could lead to permanent health issues, especially those injuries that affect the spinal cord.
When you represent yourself, you are more prone to accept the first offer your carrier provides you which covers far less compensation than your injury will require.
At The Law Offices of Sean M. Cleary, our experienced personal injury lawyer will make sure you get the reimbursement you deserve. Typically, our clients call in when they have suffered:
Our car accident lawyer will evaluate how much your personal injury claim is worth, by:

You Are a Pedestrian or Bicyclist in Miami Hit by a Motor Vehicle
Cases of pedestrians or bicyclists hit by a reckless driver are not uncommon in Miami. If you were involved in this type of automobile accident, contact our auto accident lawyer. The liability arising from these driving accidents requires legal representation. In most cases, the pedestrians and bicyclists get injured and are not prepared for dealing with insurance to ensure justice for themselves.
You Find It Hard to Deal with a Miami Insurance Company
When you are injured you may not have someone in your corner when you are up against the other driver's insurance company who has a team and legal infrastructure trying to find ways to give you less compensation. Many of our clients complain that when they have started an insurance claim on their own, the insurance company:
- Was either not responding to their claims to get their car repaired or to pay their medical bills
- Was harassing them, forcing them into settlements that were not to their advantage.
Many times, insurance companies will try to avoid paying for damages. One common strategy is to gain more time by making the claims process seem more complicated than it is. The insured motorists get tired of waiting and they agree to do whatever the insurance adjuster suggests just to make sure they get some money.
You should not hesitate to contact our injury attorney if:
- You are facing delays
- Your auto insurer fails to answer your requests
- You simply feel that you are not treated fairly
