Auto Accident Injuries

Car accidents are a common occurrence on the streets of West Palm Beach, because of how busy our roads can be.
According to crash statistics at the Florida Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles, there were 395,841 automobile collisions in 2016 and 165,953 injuries as a result. Though auto accidents and injuries can occur just about anywhere in Florida, they often occur on surface streets, on interstate I-95, and on Florida’s Turnpike.

Vehicle crash cases often occur as a result of:
– Tailgating
– Speeding
– Drunk Driving
– Drug Impaired Driving
– Tired Driving
– Distracted Driving
– Reckless Driving
– Breaking Traffic Laws

Liability & Damage Recovery
It is the responsibility of any motor vehicle operator to conduct themselves safely, so that they do not endanger other drivers on the road. If that duty is ignored, other drivers can be harmed due to the negligent conduct of another. The driver at fault is then liable for bodily injury and any vehicle damage that takes place as a result of their negligence. If you have been hurt in a car accident, the Law Offices of Craig Goldenfarb, P.A. may be able to help you get the compensation that you are entitled to. Motor vehicle accident personal injury compensation may include:

– Vehicle Damages
– Property Damages
– Hospital and Other Medical Bills
– Lost Wages
– Pain and Suffering
– Costs of Future Care

Don’t rely on the insurance company to inform you. Insurance agents and adjusters work on behalf of the insurance company and are not seeking what is best for their injured clients. It is crucial that you never agree to or accept a settlement offer from an insurance company without first speaking with an experienced auto accident personal injury attorney.

1
Stay on the Scene
Leaving the scene of an accident you are involved in, especially if some has been injured or even killed, is a criminal offense. Doing so could result in significant criminal charges and even jail time. It is always best to wait for the appropriate time to leave, which will be indicated by a present law enforcement officer.
2
Check on Everyone Involved
First make sure that you are OK, and that you have not sustained any injuries. Some of your own injuries may not be immediately apparent, so be cautious before rushing to the aid of another. If anyone on the scene needs emergency medical attention, contact an ambulance immediately. If anyone is unconscious or in severe pain, do not move them unless they are in eminent danger, otherwise wait until qualified medical professionals arrive.
3
Call the Police
The police deal with auto accidents frequently. Having a law enforcement authority on the scene will allow you to have an official police report filed detailing the occurrence, and ensure that the appropriate information has been exchanged. Do not move your vehicles so that when the police arrive, the scene can be reported as accurately as possible.
4
Call the Police
It is important to be as prepared as possible even in situations that seem less significant. Don’t simply rely on the police report, but gather all the information necessary from drivers, which will include:

<>
– Full Name
– Phone Number
– Address
– Drivers’ License Number
– Vehicle Registration Information
– License Plate Number
– Insurance Information
– Take Pictures!

If there are any passengers or witness, collect their names, phone numbers and addresses also. Makes sure to take pictures, and if possible draw a small diagram of the accident. Take pictures of the accident site and of any damages to your vehicle as soon as possible, this helps ensure that you receive the appropriate amount of compensation for vehicle damage and help you recall details that might otherwise later escape your memory.
