A small firm dedicated to giving each case our full attention
Immediately after the accident, you are likely to be disoriented, confused or even frustrated. While it is perfectly natural to feel this way, there are certain steps you need to take to secure your chances of recovering fair compensation. Here’s what you should do:
Seek medical attention and evaluation: There is a 14-day treatment rule established under Florida Statute 627.736(1)(a). The rule states that if you sustain an injury in a car crash you must seek medical attention within two weeks of the accident. Report promptly to a doctor or another medical practitioner to take an early medical record of your injuries.
Keep a detailed record of the event: Preserving evidence is key to a successful car accident claim through a lawsuit or by an insurance claim. Try to take photographs of the scene, other vehicles and your injuries from different angles. Talk to witnesses at the scene and get their contact information. Take down the name and contact address of the other driver and police officers on the scene if any.
Do not sign any documents: Usually, if you have a solid case, you may receive calls from insurance companies. The at-fault driver may even offer to compensate you for your injuries. Be careful though. Such offers are rarely up to half what your claim is worth and if you accept, you may severely shortchange yourself. Exercise caution and reach out to an experienced lawyer. Contact our Fort Walton Beach car accident attorneys to schedule a free, no-obligation consultation.
Our Fort Walton Beach car accident attorneys can also help you lay claim to damages in cases involving uninsured motorists.
The aftermath of a car accident is usually traumatic, especially if you have suffered a serious injury. You should not have to deal with all that stress alongside the task of pursuing compensation.

Let us help you take the steps you should take immediately after a car accident.
The Fort Walton Beach car accident attorneys at Michael E. Fenimore, P.A. have helped hundreds of people just like you reclaim their lives and the compensation they deserve. We can help you too. Just how much compensation is fair compensation? The computation of compensation payable is a technical one that we can handle for you. There is no yardstick for determination of fair compensation. It is rather determined based on the peculiar circumstances of each case.
Some of the factors the court will consider include the extent of injury caused, aggravation of pre-existing injuries and a fair assessment by experts etc. In the past we have worked with pain management doctors, radiologists and other medical experts to ensure a determination of fair compensation for our clients for injuries caused to them.
