How a Daytona Beach car accident attorney an assist you

If you have been injured in a Daytona Beach car accident, you will likely be contacted by an insurance adjuster. Remember, no matter how nice that person is, they are not your friend. They represent the insurance company and will not have your best interest in mind. Before speaking to anyone, you should contact an experienced Daytona Beach car accident attorney who will:
  • Ensure you get the best medical treatment possible
  • Protect your privacy from the insurance company
  • Negotiate on your behalf to make sure you get a settlement you are satisfied with

Getting quality medical treatment promptly

Many car accident victims delay getting medical treatment for their injuries. This could prove fatal to your injury case. No matter how minor your injuries appear, it is important to get quality treatment as quickly as possible. If you fail to get quality medical treatment, insurance companies will use that information against your claim.

Protect your privacy

The insurance company will attempt to gather as much information as they can to use against you, especially your medical history. They may ask you to sign an authorization form giving them access to your medical records. This is an invasion of your privacy, and you should not sign anything without speaking to your own lawyer first.
