What is a soft tissue injury?

Parties to an accident are often times contacted by insurance companies in an attempt to get personal injury victims to settle an injury claim quickly, and for a non-negotiated amount. Before a settlement offer is even discussed, it is extremely important to first know the extent of your injuries.

Usually, the severity of damage sustained in an accident is not easily determined, and in many cases an injured party may suffer soft tissue or latent injuries that do not arise until much later. However, once a settlement agreement is made and tendered, an injured party releases their right to recovery for injuries related to that particular incident.

If you are involved in an auto accident, it is always important to first seek medical attention. After an auto accident, it is best to go immediately to the hospital or other treatment facility to determine the extent of your injuries and pinpoint the necessary steps of rehabilitation that might be required.

Secondly, an injured party should always contact an attorney for legal consultation and general information on how to proceed following an accident. In the event an insurance company contacts you regarding your injury claim, do not offer any recorded statements without first consulting with an attorney.

Personal Injury? Watch out for ambulance chasers

Contrary to popular belief that personal injury attorneys chase ambulances and prey on victims, Florida law prohibits such action.

Furthermore, attorney Michael Blickensderfer does not practice such marketing techniques.  Our personal injury clients retain us because of current or previous satisfied clients who have used Blick Law Firm for their own legal matters.

A Personal injury is defined as any incident that causes physical harm or bodily damage due to the actions or negligence of others.

While injuries can be sustained in almost infinite ways, car accidents are a major cause of personal injury in the United States. Many car accidents and most motorcycle injuries can be severe and life-altering, even resulting in death.

Attorney, Michael has over 25 years’ legal experience. He is a former prosecutor, former Marine and will take your personal injury claim to court if necessary.

If the injury to yourself or a loved one was not your fault, you may be eligible for financial compensation for hospital bills, time out of work, and pain and suffering. To protect your rights and get what you deserve, contact Blick Law Firm today.

Forthcoming laws to prevent insurance fraud mandate that a victim is required to receive emergency care within 72 hours of the incident.  Also, immediate contact with us will ensure that information is still fresh in your mind and the minds of other involved parties.  If you are prevented from coming to us, we will come to you.

You or a family member or close friend should also gather as much documentation regarding your accident as you can. Bring records of accident reports, insurance forms, medical bills, and personal contact information of the other people involved in the accident to your free consultation with Michael.
