The decisions you make in the first few days following a car accident can make a big difference in your recovery. Even a single mistake can damage your case against the at-fault driver and make it more difficult to obtain compensation for everything you have lost.

At Aaron Delgado & Associates, our experienced personal injury attorneys offer a free initial consultation to discuss your case. We will take the time to explain your rights and answer your questions without cost or obligation to hire us after the consultation.

Below are some important things to remember if you've been injured in an accident.

Seek Immediate Medical Attention

Even if you don't think your injuries are serious, go to the doctor and make sure you are all right. If you wait more than 14 days, your treatment will not be covered by Florida PIP.

Do Not Speak to the Other Party's Insurance Company

If you are contacted by the other party's insurance company, don't say anything or sign anything. Insurance companies have one goal and that is to pay you as little money as possible. Learn more about handling insurance companies.

Do Not Discontinue Medical Care

Even if medical bills are piling up, it is important to continue your medical treatment. If you discontinue treatment, your injuries may take longer to heal. In addition, the insurance company will assume that you are no longer injured and reduce the value of your claim.

The sooner you contact our attorneys after an accident, the sooner we can collect and preserve evidence of liability and protect you from insurance company tactics that are designed to minimize your recovery. We handle all accident cases on a contingency fee basis, so there are no upfront costs.
