After a car crash, or theme park accident, you may not immediately realize you have been injured. If in doubt, go to the hospital and get evaluated. It is essential to report all symptoms of your injuries to a doctor in a timely manner.
The longer you wait to be diagnosed, the more difficult it may be to prove your damages.
All personal injury cases have two main parts: Liability and Damages. Each of these can become hotly contested.
Liability involves determining fault. Even in cases where the fault is clear as to who or what caused the accident,
the cause of your injuries may be disputed.

In a personal injury case, money is the measure of damages. Often, your damages must be established by doctors’ opinions and by other experts. The other party may blame you for causing your own injuries. If liability for the accident is contested, other experts such as licensed engineers may be needed. You should never be charged up front to hire an expert.
Attorney’s fees should only be collected upon actual receipt of a settlement or a damages award.
Be sure to see a doctor about your injuries within 14 days of the accident
If you are injured in an accident but fail to timely seek medical attention, your rights maybe adversely affected. With some injuries it is common to believe you are not really injured. Once you realize you really are hurt, it is important to get diagnosed and treated. Putting off treatment may hinder your health and your ability to recover damages. Don’t make your legal case harder than it needs to be.Contact Tampa Personal Injury Lawyer
