If you've been involved in a car accident in Miami, FL, seek medical attention as soon as possible. Unfortunately, many people don't see a doctor the same day they are involved in an accident.
In the hours after the crash, going to the E.R. sounds even more traumatic, so they wait until the next days. Sometimes, people don't get medical treatment because they think this will hurt their car accident claim, but that's not the case.
When you want to seek compensation for injuries caused by a car accident, contact our lawyer, Sean Cleary, right away after you get medical treatment to help you recover money for your damages.
It's better to go to the E.R. immediately after a car accident, for a lot of reasons:
- You could easily have broken or fractured something and not realized it
- You'll receive treatment more quickly
- It will help your case when you later file your insurance claim for your injuries
Also, PTSD is very real. If you're experiencing emotional distress following the accident, go see a therapist. Help yourself.
If you're still wondering whether you should call our lawyer or try to fight for your cause on your own, this article will answer your dilemma. If you are in one of the following situations, do reach out to Sean Cleary.
Your Car Accident Injuries in Miami are Severe or Permanent
Many car accident cases don't 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. By choosing to represent yourself, you're more prone to accept the first offer your carrier provides you which covers far less than your injury will require. Our experienced lawyer will make sure you get the money you deserve. By analyzing your medical evidence, asking for additional investigations, if necessary, and comparing your case to previous claims, our lawyer will evaluate how much your claim is worth.
Commonly, our clients call in when they've suffered: neck injury, back injury, lower back injury, legs bruises, arms bruises, nerve issues for legs, and head injuries.
You're a Pedestrian or Bicyclist in Miami Hit by a Motor Vehicle
It's not uncommon to hear that a reckless driver hit a pedestrian. If you are involved in this type of car accident, contact our lawyer. The liability arising from these accidents requires support from a legal representative. In most cases, the pedestrians and bicyclists get injured and aren't prepared for the game they have to play in order to ensure justice for themselves.
You Find It Hard to Deal with the Miami Insurance Company
When you're injured, you don't have someone in your corner, and you're up against the other driver's insurance company who has a team and legal infrastructure trying to find ways to give you less. Many of our clients complain that when they've started an insurance claim on they're own, the insurance company was either not responding to get their car repaired or to pay their medical bills, or was harassing them, forcing them into settlements that were not to their advantage.
Many times, insurance companies use various subterfuges to avoid paying for the losses. One common strategy is to gain more time by making the procedure seem more complicated than it is. The insured persons get tired of waiting, and they agree to do whatever the carrier suggest just to make sure they get some money.
If you're facing delays, your insurer fails to answer your requests, or you simply feel that you are not treated fairly, you shouldn't hesitate to contact our lawyer. Talk to our lawyer, even if it seems unnecessary in the beginning. A lawyer's letter means more to an insurance company than yours. Plus, our lawyer might provide the information you'd never otherwise be privy to. When Sean Cleary takes over your case, you won't have to take the insurance calls anymore, and he will make sure the insurance will pay out what it needs to.
