wHAT tO dO After a cAR Accident
Because the claims process can be incredibly complex, we highly recommend that you contact a Tampa car accident lawyer at our firm as soon as possible. When you contact us, we can begin investigating your crash and building a strong case for your recovery.
Here are some ways we can help.
Your Crash Report
We can help you obtain a copy of your crash report, which is a vital piece of evidence. We can track down the law enforcement agency that took down your report. We can also compile other necessary information such as medical records, crash estimate, and insurance information.
File Reports with the Bureau of Motorist Compliance
In Florida, when you are involved in a car accident, you will seek a final judgment from a Florida court (in your jurisdiction) against the party who caused your accident. Our firm can help you file these reports with the Bureau of Motorist Compliance to take action, for example, against a driver if they didn't have auto insurance or sufficient auto insurance to cover the cost of the damage you sustained.
Communicate with Your Insurance Provider
When we represent clients involved in automobile collisions, we can take on communications with your insurance company (as well as the other party's insurance company). We can make sure you report and submit information in the time allotted so that your case is not harmed by a technicality. We are also prepared to deal with unresponsive insurance companies to prevent or remedy insurance bad faith.
Proof of Insurance Coverage
The Florida Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles (DHSMV) will need to see your proof of bodily injury and property damage liability coverage. We can provide this and related information to the DHSMV.

There are many types of damages that are possible in any injury case, and evaluating your case before moving forward is a key factor in the amount of the settlement you will receive.
