What Should I Do If I Am Involved in an Accident Caused by Someone Else?
Your priority is to seek medical help for yourself and any other parties involved in the accident. Even if you think you are fine and not injured, it may be in your best interest to be examined by a health care professional. Many injuries may show delayed symptoms and take days or weeks to manifest themselves. By seeing a doctor right after the accident, you will have documentation showing the progression of your injury and linking it to the accident.
If you can do so, gather some information from the scene of the accident to strengthen your case. Photos, videos, contact information for any witnesses, and a copy of any police report are all helpful pieces of evidence for your claim. Report the accident to your own insurance company as soon as possible, and reach out to a personal injury law firm for guidance on the next steps.
How Much Time Do I Have to Initiate a Claim After an Accident?
Most personal injury cases fall under Florida’s statute of limitation of four years following the date that the accident took place. It is important to highlight that even though four years sound like a long time, it is not a good idea to wait that long before initiating a civil lawsuit. The longer you wait, the harder it may be to gather the necessary evidence for your case. If filing an insurance claim, it is important to read your policy to be aware of deadlines imposed by your carrier, but the same rule applies — the sooner you get started with a claim, the better your chances will be of securing a positive outcome.
