How Our Tampa Car Accident Lawyers Will Fight to Recover the Compensation You Deserve
At Abrahamson & Uiterwyk, our accident attorneys understand that suffering an injury from an automobile accident can be a life-altering experience for accident victims and their loved ones. Trying to navigate through the insurance and legal process can be confusing and frustrating. More importantly, dealing with insurance companies without experienced legal assistance will likely result in receiving far less compensation or nothing at all. The big insurance companies are not necessarily there to help you. They hope to pay injured victims the smallest amount possible. Having a highly skilled Tampa car accident lawyer advocating for you offers you the best chance of recovering the compensation you deserve. When working with our personal injury law team, you can expect us:
- To conduct a thorough investigation of all the facts related to your case.
- To identify all responsible parties and insurance coverages.
- To file a No-Fault claim to initiate payments of your medical bills and lost wages.
- To handle all communication with the insurance companies on your behalf.
- To provide excellent communication by promptly answering your calls and keep you updated of new developments in your case.
- To obtain all pertinent documentation to substantiate your injury claim.
- To aggressively negotiate with the insurance companies to seek the compensation you deserve.
- To fight for your rights in trial when necessary.
- To never charge fees or costs unless you win.
What to Do After an Auto Accident
When you’ve been involved in a car accident, it can be physically and emotionally stressful. You can be disoriented and confused. But it’s important to stay calm and keep your head on straight. Here are some important steps you can take after a car accident.
1. Stay Safe
Pull over to the side of the road and ensure that you and the other people involved in the accident are safe. Safety should be your number one priority after a car accident. If anyone is seriously injured, contact an ambulance
2. Call the Police
It is always important to call the police after an accident even if the other driver encourages you not to. The police will make a report at the scene. Get the name of the officer making the report and the report number so you can get a copy later.
3. Gather Information
Get the name, contact information, and insurance information of the other driver. You should also get the contact information of any passengers involved in the accident and any witnesses who may have seen what happened
4. Document the Scene
Use your phone to take pictures of the scene, any property damage, and any injuries. You should also take a picture of the other car’s license plate.
5. Get Medical Treatment
If you’ve been critically injured, you will most likely be taken from the scene by ambulance. However, even if you feel that you haven’t been seriously injured, you should still seek medical treatment as soon as possible. Some injuries don’t present themselves right away, and you want to make sure you have documentation of any injuries.
6. Don’t Talk to the Insurance Company
The other driver’s insurance company will probably try to contact you and get you to make a statement about what happened. Remember that the insurance company is not on your side and that your words may be used against you later. The insurance company will want to record you, and have you sign various legal and medical releases.

Today to Protect Your Rights
There are a number of important reasons why you should contact an experienced Tampa personal injury attorney right away. For one, to preserve evidence. Especially evidence of car accidents can disappear quickly. Memories can get fuzzy, skid marks can fade, and preserving as much evidence as possible is critical to maximizing your chances of a full recovery.
For another, after a car accident, the insurance companies have already begun working on your case. They have likely already assembled their vast resources in an effort to minimize your case, injuries, and compensation. To protect yourself against the insurance companies’ proven tactics, you need an experienced, knowledgeable, and aggressive advocate on your side.
Finally, if you wait too long to file your claim, you could lose your rights entirely. Florida has a strict “statute of limitations” for personal injury claims. If you fail to take actin in time, then your claim may simply expire.
