Auto Accident Victim: I was walking to my car at a convenience store the other day and a parked car backed up suddenly, they were in a real hurry, and knocked me down to the pavement. I got scraped up and am real sore; the other driver apologized up and down and gave me their insurance information. What do I do from here? Can you help me?
Orlando auto accident attorney: You already took care of one of the most important parts, exchanging insurance information. If the driver refuses to exchange insurance information the best thing to do would be to call the police. They will write up a report and even ticket the driver of the car that stuck you. As you indicated you were headed to your car, as you were injured as a pedestrian by a four wheeled vehicle, you are entitled to $10,000 in medical expense(s) and lost wage coverage regardless of who was at fault. However you must seek medical treatment within fourteen days of the accident. Depending on the nature of your injuries, I can also recover money for you, generally substantial, to compensate you for pain and suffering. Indeed, unless I recover money specifically for pain and suffering, you owe me nothing. We’re happy to meet even after hours and our consultations are free. 407-924-4566
