Auto Accident Question: I was in an accident this past Friday where I got rearended hard at a red light. There was a witness and the police officer gave the guy a ticket for careless driving. His insurance company is already in the process of fixing my car and will put me in a nice rental car tomorrow. My shoulder and neck are real sore, but I have relatives and friends saying I shouldn’t bother to legally pursue anything because my insurance rates will just go up. My question is will my auto insurance rate go up if I hire an attorney after a car accident?
Orlando Car Accident Attorney: As you were rearended, the other party was clearly 100% liable, and your agent will tell you that they will not raise your rates, nor can they drop you or refuse to renew you for using your no fault benefits; state law requires it. While society teaches us to carry on, you frankly do not know the full extent of your injuries. At least get checked out, and under state law you must seek medical care within 14 days of the accident or you lost $10,000.00 in medical expense and lost wage benefits. We can help in all aspects. Our consultations are free and moreover unless we recover money for you specifically for pain and suffering, you owe us absolutely nothing.
