Q: Should I contact a lawyer?
I got into an uber accident but wasn't hurt. The police were called and they told us it was the other driver's fault.
A: Good afternoon. I would contact a lawyer if you were injured or are in pain so you can understand your rights. If you have been injured or are in pain you should seek medical attention immediately. If you don’t, you may compromise your claim and the amount of benefits you could be entitled to.
We would be happy to discuss any questions or concerns that you have.
A: You have 14 days to seek medical attention after a car accident. If you do not then you will forfeit your benefits under your PIP insurance policy. Discuss your case with counsel here in Florida about contingency fee representation which means that you pay nothing unless you win the case.
