Tips From a Florida Spring Break Accident Attorney
Spring break 2023 is here! Here in Daytona Beach - it is a time of fun, sun, and relaxation for college students and young adults alike. However, the excitement of the beaches and parties can quickly turn into a nightmare if you or someone you know is involved in a car accident while on your break.
On Beach Accidents
Daytona Beach is famous for its night life, warm weather, fun beaches, and beach parties. Daytona Beach is unique in that it allows for drivers to take their cars onto the beach itself. This is convenient and fun--but it can also be dangerous. With drivers on the beach, it is possible that a car may hit you while you are just enjoying yourself or, on the flip side, you may hit someone while driving on the beach. This can complicate the situation for a person involved in an accident because it is even harder to determine who is at fault as there are no rules of the road that apply.
Daytona Beach is also very popular with motorcycle enthusiasts. After all, we do host Bike Week every year! If you decide to ride on a motorcycle, rent a motorcycle, or get hit by a motorcycle -- the laws can be a bit different. Our Daytona Beach motorcycle accident attorneys at The Law Offices of Carolina Nunez, P.A. know exactly how to handle a motorcycle accident case.
Uber, Lyft, Rideshare Services, and Rental Cars
A car accident can ruin your Daytona Beach experience and leave you dealing with serious injuries, medical bills, and legal complications. Whether you were in a car accident in your own car, a rental car, Uber, or Lyft--you have legal rights. However, many involved in these types of accidents don't know how to navigate through an insurance claim where there are multiple insurances involved. Did you get additional renter's insurance when you rented the vehicle? Did you use Turo? If so--what insurances do I call to make a claim? These are all important questions that can affect your financial compensation.
That's why it's crucial to hire an experienced Florida attorney who can help you navigate the aftermath of a car accident. Here, at The Law Offices of Carolina Nunez, P.A.,we can help. With our expertise and guidance, you can focus on recovering from your injuries while we do all of the fighting for you against the insurance companies.
Immediate Steps to Take After a Car Accident
Step 1) Make sure everyone involved in the accident is safe and call for medical help if needed.
Step 2) Call the police and report the accident. Be sure to exchange information with the other driver, including their name, address, phone number, license plate number, and insurance information.
Step 3) If you are in an Uber, Lyft, or any other rideshare service -- make sure you also get this information from the driver.
Step 4) Take photos of the accident scene, including any damage to the vehicles and any injuries you or others may have sustained.
Step 5) Seek medical treatment immediately. It is important for you to either get to an urgent care or the hospital as soon as possible.
How a Florida Attorney Can Help You Navigate the Legal System -- Especially If You Are NOT from Florida
Most spring breakers in Daytona Beach are from other cities in Florida or from out of
state. This can complicate the legal aspect of the car accident case as there may be multiple jurisdictions involved. Without boring you too much on the Rules of Civil Procedure in state and federal court -- it essential that you contact a Florida experienced law firm that actually litigates their cases. Not all law firms that advertise have litigators that are able to fight the insurance companies in court. Many other Florida law firms that advertise car accident representation do not have the capital or experience to go to court.
