Do I need to contact my insurance company about my Florida car accident?

Most insurance companies have a cooperation clause and require that you tell them promptly, it doesn’t have to be on the way to the emergency room, but you have to contact them within a reasonable period of time to tell them about the accident.

Do I have to give a recorded statement to the insurance company in a Florida auto accident case?

No. Never give a statement to somebody who may be adverse to you. Now, if it’s your insurance company that’s asking for a statement, your policy may require you under the cooperation clause to give a statement, but the best thing to do is to call your lawyer or call a lawyer who does accident cases to protect your rights.

Do I need an attorney for my Florida auto accident case if the insurance company seems to be cooperating?

Of course you do. The insurance company is always consistent in trying to protect their own interests and give you the least compensation that they can possibly give you. That’s why you need a lawyer to represent you against the insurance company, to represent your interests.

How long will it take to get money in my Florida auto accident case?

There’s no easy answer. It can take a long time or relatively short time. Depends on the severity of your injuries. It depends on the insurance that the parties have. It depends on whether or not you as the patient or victim is getting better or not getting better and whether you have to file a lawsuit or not. So it could take up to a few years.

How quickly should I contact an attorney after a Florida auto accident?

If you know a lawyer that has done personal injury cases, auto accident cases, and you’re able to call from the accident scene you should do it at the accident scene. If you can do it the next day, you should do it the next day. There’s no real time, but the sooner you have an attorney on your side the better chance you have of developing your case to the advantage that you’d want to have against the insurance company who’s working to minimize your damages.

How long does it take to settle a Florida auto accident case?

Well, the first thing that you must establish is if you’re hurt and if you’re hurt, are you going to get worse? Are you going to get better? When you reach a point where you’re not going to get any better, then you can try to settle your case through your council. And if this doesn’t work out, then your lawyer will follow a lawsuit for you. It can take anywhere from six months to a few years.
