What is the Next Step?
If you or a family member have been in a car accident in Fort Lauderdale and have suffered injuries, it’s very important to act swiftly in order to protect your rights.
Make sure you:
Receive Medical Attention
Even if you think you’re fine, it’s important to see a doctor and get examined. Many symptoms don’t appear for days or weeks. Prompt medical care can help prevent injuries from getting worse.
It’s very important to keep a journal of everything you can remember about your car accident. Track witness information, including names, addresses, and phone numbers; draw diagrams of the accident scene; and take photos of the accident site, damaged cars, and any suffered injuries. The lawyers at Wolf & Pravato have access to top reconstruction experts and accident and defect engineers in their fields. This allows us to investigate the biomechanics of the accident and helps us uncover evidence others might overlook. We explore “second collision claims” to see if any manufacturer defect played a role in the collision.
Record Your Expenses
A strong claim tracks the financial impact of your accident. Keep records of medical bills, mileage to doctors’ appointments, car rental expenses, lost wages, and all other expenses incurred from the car accident.
