What Sets RHINO Lawyers Apart
When we work with our clients, it’s more than an attorney/client relationship. We form deep relationships with each person we work with and we want them to achieve success. We understand how traumatic it can be to go through a car accident and we do everything in our power to ensure the process afterward is as stress-free as possible.
Most people aren’t sure what to do following a car accident. After seeking medical attention, you should immediately contact RHINO Lawyers. We’ll guide you through the entire process and be a sympathetic ear whenever you need to talk about the accident.
We’ll work diligently to obtain your medical records, accident scene evidence, and everything else we need to build a solid case against the opposing party. Our team will also negotiate with medical providers to guarantee you’re not getting overbilled. That ensures that more of your settlement amount goes into your pocket instead of getting paid to medical companies.
Settle Your Case Fast
At RHINO Lawyers, we’re proud to settle our cases much faster than other Fort Myers law firms do. Your case can get settled in as little as 9 to 12 months.
Additionally, you don’t pay any fees upfront when you work with RHINO Lawyers. We only get paid when you receive your settlement. If we’re not successful, then you owe us nothing.
What Should I Do After a Car Accident?
Dealing with the aftermath of a car accident can be stressful and overwhelming. Immediately after your car accident, move your vehicle, yourself, and anyone else involved out of the roadway. Be sure to put your hazard lights on as well.
Next, check yourself and everyone else involved for injuries. You should seek medical attention immediately, even if you don’t feel any pain or see visible injuries. Some common injuries from car accidents, like whiplash, take several days for symptoms to appear. Showing that you sought medical attention and your medical records are also essential components in building your case.
You should also immediately call the police and 911 after your accident. They might already have been notified by witnesses. The responding officers will file a police report that is another important aspect of building your case. The police report helps us when determining who the at-fault party was.
It’s perfectly acceptable to speak to the other drivers involved in the car accident. You can ask them how they’re feeling and get their contact information. However, it’s important to never assign or accept blame while you’re at the scene of the accident.
If you can, take pictures and videos of the scene, including all the vehicles that were involved. Talk to the witnesses that were there and get their contact information as well.
Throughout the recovery process, keep a hold of any receipts or bills you get from your treatment. You can also make note of the pain and suffering you’ve gone through following the auto accident.
We highly recommend you contact our Fort Myers team at RHINO Lawyers immediately following your car accident. We’re here to be by your side throughout the entirety of the process.
Follow the 14-Day Rule
It’s important to not wait too long to contact a car accident attorney. The first two weeks following your car accident are crucial to protecting your benefits and rights. As we mentioned, seeking medical attention immediately can help you treat any injuries you sustained but also help you receive compensation.
Additionally, Florida law says that you have 14-days to get medical care so you can qualify for Personal Injury Protection (PIP) benefits. You also have to get medical care from an approved healthcare provider, like an emergency room, primary care, or urgent care doctor.
Your PIP benefits will cover the following items:
- Surgical services
- Medical care
- Ambulance transportation
- Rehabilitative services
- Dental care
That’s why it’s vital not to delay seeking medical attention, even if you don’t feel injured.
