Winning a Car Accident Lawsuit
Being in a car accident can disrupt so much of your life in ways that you may not be quite prepared for. Your car certainly may be inoperable, and you may be injured to the point where you’re out of commission. This might leave you feeling angry and overwhelmed. Getting compensation may be a resolution for you. Here is how to determine whether you have a good chance of winning a car accident lawsuit.
One of the things that is important to understand is that in Florida, anything you say, or the other driver says to the police officer while they are investigating the accident will not be admissible in court because of what we call the police report privilege. You will want to get the names and addresses and phone numbers of the witnesses that are available. Prompt medical attention and cooperation with the police officers is needed when investigating the accident.
Oftentimes when people come into our office after a car accident we basically ask four questions. First of, who is at fault for the accident? Secondly, does the opposite driver, what we consider the at fault driver have bodily injury coverage? If not, do you have uninsured motorist coverage? And lastly what was the amount of property damage involved in the accident because oftentimes an insurance company and sometimes a jury will look at the amount of property damage to a vehicle in determining whether someone was injured or how badly that person was injured in the accident.
