Bonnie Berns is an experienced personal injury attorney with more than three decades of experience serving the citizens of Daytona Beach, FL and surrounding communities including Ormond Beach, Palm Coast and Port Orange. Accidents can happen at any time at any place like while shopping at a store, on private property, or even as a passenger in a car. And whether you are injured in a car accident, a slip and fall accident or any other type of accident through the negligence of another, a personal injury attorney can help ensure you are fairly compensated for your injuries.
Whenever you are injured in an accident it is important to seek immediate medical attention. Many people involved in an accident don’t always seek treatment right away because the injury appears to be relatively minor only to discover later that the injury was more severe than previously thought. Also, seeking medical attention provides you with the ability to document your injuries which will be vital should you decide to contact a slip and fall lawyer to file a personal injury lawsuit.
File a report. If you are injured in a car accident, it is imperative you file a police report to document the incident. The State of Florida requires that any car accident involving a death, injury or at least $500 in property damage to be immediately reported to local law enforcement or Florida Highway Patrol (FHP).
In the event your slip and fall accident occurred in a store or on private property, you should file a report with the store manager, property owner, or local police. Be sure to make note of any witnesses and take pictures of where you fell. If you are hospitalized, you can ask a family member or friend to file an accident claim on your behalf. The more documentation and evidence you have the easier it will be for a slip and fall lawyer to prove negligence.
Contact a car accident or slip and fall personal injury lawyer as soon as possible. I will be able to provide you with invaluable advice that will help you achieve the outcome you desire.
