What Should You Do After A Car Accident?

Jacksonville Bodily Injury Claim Lawyer

What is a bodily injury claim?

In Florida, car insurance can cover property damage, bodily injury, and personal injury. Bodily injury insurance will cover damages done to another person if you are responsible for a car accident; personal injury insurance will cover the costs of any medical treatment you require after an accident.

If you have been injured by another driver’s recklessness, you can file a bodily injury claim with the assistance of a Jacksonville car accident attorney. This includes a driver who causes an injury to you while you are a passenger in their vehicle. If you win your case, the reckless driver’s insurance company will be required to pay your medical expenses.

How do I file a bodily injury claim?

If you are in a car accident, it is very important to get the other driver’s insurance information. You can then contact their insurer to file a bodily injury claim.

The first step will be to talk to a claims adjuster, an employee of the insurance company. However, you should keep in mind that it is a claims adjuster’s job to minimize the amount of money that the insurance company will have to pay you; therefore, their questions will be designed to make your injury appear less significant or to coerce you into admitting some fault for the accident.

Before you file a bodily injury claim, it is a very good idea to speak to a Jacksonville personal injury lawyer. A good attorney will be able to explain the legal process and advise you on how to handle the claims adjuster’s interview. A personal injury attorney will argue your case and help you get what you are entitled to.
