The three most important things in your Orlando, Florida auto case that drive an insurance company to reserve a little bit higher and make your claim more valuable at the end are:
#1, the property damage to your car, is it a little quarter on the rear-end, or is the whole quarter panel been folded up like an accordion.
#2, the onset of treatment, how quick did this guy go to the doctor. “Oh well, he didn’t go to the doctor for three months”, that’s not good.
You need to get to the doctor within 24 hours, and I mean, here’s a walking clinic, and a Centra
Care, some type of chiropractic visit, a phone call to your primary care physician where he writes down in your chart, “Frank got in an accident today. He’s sore, and called in some pain killers.”
That will get what you need.
#3 is your wages. If you’re missing work, juries understand it. So property damage, the onset of treatment and your wages are going to be important to give the adjuster for the other side. “We’re not dealing with a wimpy, we’re not dealing with nothing, a little speed impact, well, the guys, nothing’s wrong with him. Here’s 1,000 bucks”, those three things need to be documented.
