Protecting Your Rights after a Miami Car Accident

At Gerson & Schwartz, P.A., we are committed to representing the rights of people who have been hurt in motor vehicle crashes. Our Miami car accident lawyers will review your case for free and do not collect any legal fees unless we successfully recover a settlement or award on your behalf.

Whether you will be able compensation (as well as the amount you ultimately do recover) depends in part on the things that you say and do in the hours, days, and weeks after you are hurt in a crash.

Getting hurt in a car accident is not something anyone expects. As a result, many victims are completely in the dark about what they should and should not do after they have been involved in a wreck. Here are some of the steps that you definitely should take after an accident – in our next blog, we will discuss certain things that you should avoid.

  • Collect Information – If you are able to stay at the scene of the accident, you should collect as much information as possible about the way in which your accident occurred. Write down facts like the names of the drivers involved, the weather conditions at the time of the accident, and the license plate number of the vehicles. Make note of anything that seems out of the ordinary, such as whether any of the vehicles had damage that likely existed before the accident or whether there were road conditions that may have contributed to your accident.
  • Get Evaluated – Be sure to undergo a full medical evaluation conducted by a professional as soon as you can after your accident has occurred. Failure to do so may make it difficult to establish that your injuries were caused by your accident or the extent and nature of your injuries, both of which are necessary to recover compensation.
  • Keep Notes about the Way Your Injuries Have Affected You – Establishing damages is an important part of maximizing your car accident settlement or award. For this reason, you should keep notes about the way your injuries affect you on a daily basis. Document issues like pain, sleeplessness, depression, and missing out on social events because of your injuries
  • Talk to Car Accident Lawyer in Miami – The single most effective thing you can do as a car accident victim to protect your rights is to retain an attorney as soon as you can.

Mr Nick Gerson has been extremely attentive (even on weekends!) and has been more than willing to take time to answer all my questions. His receptionist (Suzanne) and paralegal (Carla) are courteous, friendly and highly efficient in all matters. Mr Gerson's diligence lead to a very quick resolution of my case. I am more than pleased to recommend you seek him as your attorney. You will not regret you did!! G.I.B.

Mr. Gerson and all his team gave to my case the careful and professional attention it needed from the beginning to end. Unfortunately, a year ago I was involved in a car accident on the victim side. I have appreciation for the good service that was given to me and my situation. Thanks. Cales & Mr. Hyde (Carlos Andrés García Jiménez), Google User
