car accident

No one expects to get into a car accident, but no matter how safe of a driver you are, a split second can change your life forever.

In 2009, roughly 26 people were injured in a car crash every hour in Florida. That means over 600 people per day are injured in a crash. Then in 2010, there were 17,480 traffic crashes in Hillsborough County alone, according to the Department of Motor Vehicles.

One of the Most Common Causes of Accidents is Negligence

Unfortunately, one of the most common causes of crashes is careless driving. That means people are often injured due to someone else’s negligence. When the crash happens you might find yourself confused, anxious and not knowing what to do with the property damage to your car, your lost wages, and medical bills. Here are some tips to follow after a crash:

  1. It is important to stay calm and stay at the crash scene. If you are injured from the crash call 911 and go to the hospital or walk-in clinic. Make sure to use your PIP insurance to pay for medical bills.
  2. Take pictures of the vehicles at the scene of the crash including any damage done to any of the vehicles, property or people involved.
  3. Make sure to get names and personal information of any witness of the crash.
  4. If you are not injured then you will need to report the claim to your insurance company. Try to obtain a rental car using your insurance or the at fault drivers insurance. Call Keith Ligori at Ligori & Ligori if you have any questions at 813-254-7119.
  5. Finally, if your insurance company is not stepping up to help you, call a Tampa lawyer at Keith Ligori anytime at 813-254-7119!

The First 24-48 Hours are Key

Ligori & Ligori is an amazing law firm. The employees take time with you to make sure that you truly understand the details of your case and why things are done a certain way to produce the best results. When calling, I always spoke to a person and on the off chance that a message was left, I received a return call promptly. I highly recommend Ligori & Ligori.

Michael J.

Mr. Ligori's firm took the time to explain the legal process and find another attorney in another county. If this law firm can go the extra distance for not even their client, imagine the dedication and expertise if you were their client.

Angela K.

I had an amazing experience with Ligori & Ligori law firm. They handled my case with such professionalism. From the very beginning by sending someone to my home to get details and interview me after my accident, to my case manager Rochelle who was always a call away and explained every step and made sure there was always transparency and kept me updated with everything. I can be very tough and I called way too many times with millions of questions and my calls were never unanswered and my questions and concerns were always answered. Thanks to their amazing team, from the receptionist to John Castro the lawyer on my case who was always personal and relatable. Highly recommended!
