If you have left your house and driven almost anywhere in the Tampa Bay area, you have experienced traffic, congestion, and drivers that seem make their own traffic rules. Most of the time these daily annoyances are just that – annoying. But, when you experience an accident as a result of someone else’s careless driving, it is much more than an annoyance – it can be a life-altering experience. Your car, your health, and your career can all become mangled after an accident. An experienced car accident attorney Tampa will give you advice on how to get your life back in order.
Do not put off contacting an experienced car accident attorney Tampa after an accident. Although you might think that you can manage settling all or part of your accident claim yourself, there are quite a few things that you will need to know in order to get the best possible settlement.
First, there are deadlines that need to be strictly adhered to for serving notices of claims and filing any lawsuits that become necessary. Negligent parties and insurance companies are not going to assist you in meeting those deadlines. However, your car accident attorney Tampa will make sure that the proper notices are served and if negotiations do not result in an acceptable settlement, that a case is filed in the appropriate court, at the appropriate time.
Second, there are several areas of a claim that need to be addressed. Payment for damages to your vehicle or payment for total loss of your vehicle is part of that claim. Insurance companies will pay as little as they can for your vehicle’s damage or replacement. The same is true of any medical treatment payments and claims for lost wages. Without a car accident attorney Tampa keeping your best interests in mind, you could be left with unpaid car repair costs, medical bills, and unrecovered lost wages along with your pain and suffering.
