Brought to you by Orlando car accident lawyer, Jeremiah Jaspon of The Jaspon Firm
As a service to our clients, we have put this Useful resource guide to provide detailed information about what to expect when you have a Car Accident in Orlando.
Auto Accident Compensation
Compensation For Time Spent In the Hospital After A Car Accident
As most people are painfully aware, time spent in the hospital can not only be a scary proposition but a very costly one as well. As hospital costs soar, it is vitally important to make sure that you are not left footing the bill. It is not uncommon for only 1 night spent in the ER to cost upwards of $30,000 or more. The truth is that if somebody else’s negligence puts you in the hospital then you have the right to seek compensation from the negligent party. That is why it is so vitally important to your case to hire competent counsel as soon as possible to protect your interests throughout the duration of your case.
Compensation For Doctor Bills and Expenses After A Car AccidentWhen a person is injured in a car accident, through no fault of their own, it is common to have to visit multiple doctors throughout the course of the treatment and recovery. When the doctor’s bills begin to pile up it can create tremendous stress on both the injured and also on their families. As you can imagine, the very fact that they have sustained an injury and must take time away from work and family to visit doctors is already stressful enough. That is why it is so important to hire an attorney who will be by your side from the beginning and help you deal with the bills, the insurance companies, and all of the stress and headaches associated with it. We will help you get the money that you are legally entitled to help pay for your medical bills.
Compensation For X-ray and Specialist Bills After A Car Accident
X-rays, MRIs, pain management specialists, etc… These and potentially many other necessary health management tools may be required after being injured due to somebody else’s negligence. You will find that these bills can become quite costly and the bills add up in a hurry. The stress associated with being injured in an accident can be overwhelming by itself without the additional stress of dealing with expensive medical specialists bills as well. That is why it is so important to hire the right attorney as soon as you can to help protect your interests and alleviate a little bit of the stress from you and your loved one’s shoulders.
Compensation For Mobility and Support Items After A Car Accident
Wheelchairs, Crutches, Braces and more
When you have been so severely injured due to somebody else’s negligence that they need to use a wheelchair, crutches, braces, or any other device to move around and live life then you are certain to have mounting medical bills. These and other devices have become so costly that most people are unable to pay out of pocket for them. As these bills begin to pour into your mailbox it is important to have an aggressive attorney on your side that can help you deal with all of it from the beginning.
Compensation For Loss of Income After A Car Accident
When you have been injured due to somebody else’s negligence, and have lost income as a result, you have the right to recover that money from the injured party. In the most severe cases, you may not be able to work for the rest of your life. That is why, under Florida law, you have the right to recover any loss of income (now or in the future) which resulted from the negligent party’s actions. In order to ensure you get everything you are entitled to under Florida law, it is vitally important that you hire the right attorney from the beginning to zealously represent your interests.
Compensation For Loss of Future Income After A Car Accident
When you have been injured in a car accident that is not your fault, and have lost income as a result, you have the right to recover that money from the injured party. In the most severe cases, you may not be able to work for the rest of your life. That is why, under Florida Law, you have the right to recover any loss of income (now or in the future) which resulted from the negligent party’s actions. In order to ensure you get everything you are entitled to under Florida law, it is vitally important that you hire the right attorney from the beginning to zealously represent your interests.
Compensation For Damages For your Vehicle Following an Auto Accident
When you have been in a car accident the damage to your vehicle is an issue that must be dealt with immediately. Most people only have one vehicle and they depend on that vehicle to get them to doctor’s appointments, work, school, drop off the kids, etc. It is vital to your life and livelihood that you get your car back on the road as fast as possible. For this and many other reasons, it is important to contact the auto accident attorney at The Jaspon Firm immediately after your accident. We can help you deal with getting your car repaired, getting fair value for the damages to your vehicle, getting a rental car, etc. Our goal is to take on these headaches for you so you can focus on the important things…your health, your family, and your job.
Compensation For Loss of Consortium After A Car Accident
If you are the spouse of an injured person, the parent of a minor who was injured due to somebody else’s negligence, or if you are an unmarried dependent, then you may have the right to seek compensation from the person who injured your loved one. Usually, it is not only the injured person who has been harmed by someone else’s negligence but also the family members as well. That is why it is important to have an attorney on your side that will fight to seek the compensation that other members of the family may also be entitled to…not just the injured person.
Mental Pain and Suffering After an Auto Accident
Keep a Diary for Pain and Suffering After a Central Florida Car Accident.
Pain and suffering is not something that the insurance company can see and touch. Rather, it is something that needs to be explained to them. For this reason, it helps your case if you can explain to them all of the normal day to day things you used to be able to do and can not do now…or, you can not do it easily now. That is why we ask our clients to keep a diary of how this injury has affected their activities of daily living. In many instances, this will help improve the value of your case and will help us at the negotiating table. This also will show the insurance company that you are not just a file on their desk or a claim number, rather you are a real person who has gone through a painful experience and you deserve to be compensated fairly.

What To Do After a Car Accident
Seek Medical Treatment As Soon As Possible After an Auto Accident
Seek medical treatment immediately after an auto accident in the Orlando Area! It is vital to your case that you are seen by a doctor as soon as possible. Ideally, it is best for your case if you are taken by ambulance to an emergency room and treated. This is an indication to the insurance company that your case is serious and usually translates into a bigger settlement or jury verdict down the line.
Many people do not feel that they are in severe pain after an accident…due to the adrenaline rush after the accident. The next day, however, the adrenaline has worn off and the pain has set in. In the event that you do not go to an emergency room right after the accident, we would advise you to either take yourself to the emergency room when the pain has set in, or go to your general practitioner if you can get an appointment immediately. Again, not only is this a smart thing to do for your health, but it is also a wise thing to do for your case.
Remember, the insurance companies want to pay you as little as possible and will use anything they can against you. If you do not seek attention immediately after an accident, inevitably they will argue that point against you to suggest that the injury was not severe and that you should not be compensated as much as you would deem fair.
Remember, the insurance companies are in the business of making profits. Therefore, it is their job to pay you as little as possible. Do not give them any ammunition that they can use against you…get medical treatment immediately!
Seek Legal Counsel After a Central Florida Car Accident
The insurance companies will attempt to get a recorded statement from you immediately after your accident. When they do that, they have locked you into your statement and will most likely try to use it against you as the case progresses. They get the statement from you as soon as possible hoping that you have not hired an attorney to represent you. Sometimes it is a good idea to give the insurance company a recorded statement and sometimes it is not, it all depends on the specific facts of your case. Remember, no two accidents are the same and you should have an experienced attorney by your side who can take a serious look at your case and help decide the best course of action for you in order to maximize the value of the case. Remember, the insurance companies are in business to make profits and they will use every trick in the book to attempt to pay you as little as possible. It is always a good rule of thumb, especially in an accident case where timing can be crucial, to have an attorney by your side immediately after your accident.
Do not speak to the insurance companies without consulting with an experienced car accident attorney first.
Begin Consistent Medical Treatment After A Car Accident
Even if you have a high tolerance threshold for pain, it is not in your best interests to avoid treatment. It is best for your case if you begin treatment immediately. Often times, the insurance companies will use your lack of treatment against you to suggest that you weren’t really in any pain or your injuries weren’t really that serious. They tend to take your case more seriously, and consequently offer you more money usually, if you begin a treatment regiment immediately after an accident.
It is also important to tell your doctors everywhere that you are experiencing pain the first time you meet with them. It has been our experience that the insurance companies will suggest that since you didn’t disclose your injuries to your doctors after the accident that they may not have originated from the accident and therefore their insured is not responsible for paying for them. Again, the insurance companies will attempt to argue everything they can to pay you as little as possible. They are in the business of making profits and will do everything in their power to maximize their profit margins. That means they want to pay you as little as possible. Remember, hire an attorney as early as possible to be there to make sure you get every dollar that you may have coming to you.
Missing Work and PIP Insurance After a Central Florida Car Accident
Your PIP insurance is a good tool for you if you use it to its full capacity. For instance, it will pay up to $10,000.00 (ten-thousand dollars) for your medical bills, missed work, and mileage relating to the accident. If you miss work, it will pay 60% of your usual salary with proper documentation. You will have to show that you normally work x hours at a certain amount per hour, but have had to miss work because of the accident. Documentation from your employer is key to making sure that you get the proper amount of money. Also, always document your mileage to and from the doctor’s office because you can be compensated out of your PIP for that as well. Remember, there is a maximum of $10,000 available through your PIP insurance. It is a good tool for you to use as you recover from your injuries.
Keep Track of All of Your Mileage to and From the Doctors Office After an Auto Accident
Every penny counts, especially after you were injured in an accident and missing work. That is why it is important for you to keep track of every mile that you drive to and from your doctors’ offices. Although you are not compensated much per mile, it starts to add up over time. Keep track of the mileage on a sheet of paper and submit it to your insurance company. They should send you a check compensating you for each mile driven. Keep in mind that this money will come out of your $10,000 in PIP coverage that also covers your medical bills and missed work. It is important to have an attorney by your side who can guide you through the process, deal with the insurance companies, and fight to get you every dollar that you may be entitled to.

Common Mistakes to Avoid After a Car Accident in Orlando, Florida
The first thing to remember after a Florida car accident is, do not give a recorded statement to the at-fault insurance company. They will try to ask you questions in such a way that they will try to use your answers against you in the future. It is vital to your case that you first speak to and hire an experienced Orlando Car Accident Lawyer. Let your attorney look at your case and make an informed decision as to how much contact if any, there should be with the at-fault insurance company. The amount of compensation you could receive in your case may be drastically affected based upon doing these two things immediately after you are injured.
Also, make sure that you get medical attention. Do not try to be a hero. If you are in pain, please go and get yourself checked out by a medical professional. We have seen too many instances where I had a legitimately injured client who tried to be a hero and see if they would get better on their own without the need for a doctor. Trust us, if you wait too long to seek treatment the insurance companies will attempt to paint you as somebody who wasn’t truly injured in an accident and, based on that, will try to give you as little money as possible.
Remember, the insurance companies are in the business of making profits, and the less they pay you the greater their bottom line is at the end of the year. It is important that you don’t go it alone against a big insurance company.
