Palm Beach Florida MVA lawyer Palm Beach Florida MVA lawyer

When clients meet with a Palm Beach, Florida MVA lawyer from the Law Offices of Franks, Koenig & Neuwelt, they may ask us what they should do or should have done differently after being in a serious car accident. In the midst of such a scary event, it isn’t uncommon for people to forget how to respond, almost as if they are stunned and unable to absorb their surroundings.

As we grow up and reach driving age, we are often told what we should do if a car accident were to happen. However, what we aren’t necessarily informed of as much is what not to do after a car collision. A Palm Beach, FL MVA lawyer recommends not forgetting to do the following: 

Asking For Witness Contact Information

Unless the car accident happened on a secluded road where no one else is around, then chances are a bystander or two is going to come up and ask if they can help the situation. This is especially true in serious collisions, as many people want to check that all parties are okay, and to call 911 for them if needed. People who are willing to come over and help are likely to give you their contact information, just in case you need a statement from them later on.

If you can, obtain more than one form of contact for each witness and then give these details to your Florida MVA lawyer in Palm Beach at the Law Offices of Franks, Koenig & Neuwelt. We can speak with them for an official statement.

Taking The Time To Gather Evidence

Once you leave the scene of the accident, it can be difficult to find evidence. Make sure to take a few minutes and capture photographs of both vehicle damages, street signs, visible injuries, tire marks on the ground, the weather, and any other factors that could have contributed to the collision (debri on the ground, potholes, construction nearby, etc).

As your Palm Beach car accident lawyer may suggest during an appointment, you should visit your local law enforcement office to get a copy of the police report for the accident. The officer’s report can provide us with crucial details that you may not have known about yourself, in addition to being useful as evidence to show the other driver was at-fault.

Visiting Your Doctor Shortly After

Your Palm Beach MVA lawyer will need as much evidence as possible related to your case. Medical documentation can be quite convincing in proving just how severely you were impacted both financially and physically due to the incident. If you did not see your doctor shortly after the accident, then the opposing party may try to minimize your claims and question why you didn’t get care sooner. When visiting your doctor, inform him or her you were recently in a car accident so they can note it in your documentation and run the appropriate diagnostics. 

If you were the victim in a car accident and need assistance, then we encourage you to contact a MVA lawyer in Palm Beach, FL from Franks, Koenig & Neuwelt today for prompt legal support.

My husband was hurt and never dealt with an attorney before. He looked up attorneys online & thru the grace of God got Lissa Dorsey as his attorney & she was truly amazing! She was very involved, always returned our phone calls & made the whole process as easy for us as she possibly could while my husband treated with Dr's and started his healing process. I would recommend her to any & everyone without a doubt.
