Recovering Your Losses After an Auto Accident
All drivers have a responsibility to pay attention and drive safely. However, reckless and distracted driving is becoming an epidemic, leading to over 1,000 traffic crashes every day on Florida roads.
If you are injured in an auto crash, it is important to contact an experienced attorney to make sure you get the compensation you deserve. The team of lawyers at Wieland & DeLattre has considerable experience and a proven track record of success with auto accidents and commercial truck accidents. After an accident, you and your family need someone who will put you first. That is what we do, with personalized service that caters to your needs.
What to Do After an Accident
When it comes to an auto accident, it is important to not be swayed by anyone at the scene, including police, bystanders, passengers or anyone else involved. We advise against giving recorded statements before contacting an attorney.
After an auto accident, it is important to:
- Take pictures of all damaged property
- Take pictures of the accident scene and the other driver
- Take pictures of any apparent injuries
- Consult a doctor immediately
You should always be examined for injuries, as not all injuries are obvious immediately after an accident. Some serious injuries from car accidents, motorcycle crashes and truck collisions appear long after the incident. Seeing a doctor promptly is one of the best ways to protect the integrity of your personal injury claim.
You Deserve Compensation
After an accident, you may be unable to work, and the hospital bills, mortgage payments and grocery bills continue to pile up. On top of all of that, the insurance company keeps finding ways to not pay you or to drastically lessen the amount you should be getting.
Is there light at the end of this tunnel? Yes, there is, and our lawyers can help you reach it. At Wieland & DeLattre, we know all the tactics that the insurance companies utilize, and we have a reputation for going as far as we need to, including trial, so we can obtain the compensation you need for a smooth recovery.
We have over 35 years of experience representing injured individuals, and we will strive to have you fairly compensated for your losses and injuries to help you get through this difficult time.
