What pre-suit means during your car accident personal injury case in Tampa

In any civil litigation case, there is an investigation phase that is known as the pre-suit phase. This investigation phase is incredibly important to a successful personal injury lawsuit in Tampa Florida. This pre-suit phase of the personal injury claim sets the stage for negotiations with the insurance company as well as setting up a plan for a trial, if settlement is not reached. If you have been in a car accident in Tampa or you have injured yourself on private property, it is important that you give Cory Baird of Baird Law Group in Tampa a call right away. 

Below are the steps you should take if you are injured in a car crash in the Tampa, Clearwater, or St Petersburg area. 

Call 911

Getting detailed police records is very important for the pre-suit phase of your personal injury lawsuit. The police will perform their own investigation into the cause of the accident. If you are injured, it’s important to be taken to the hospital for evaluation.

Do not admit fault

This probably goes without saying, but you should not tell anybody that the car accident was your fault. 

Take pictures of the scene

Nearly everybody has a smartphone with a very nice camera on it. If you are physically able to, take pictures of the scene, any vehicle involved and any other contributing factor such as debris in the street or standing water. Again, proper documentation is the key to a successful injury claim in Tampa.

During this pre-suit phase, Baird Law Group will get to work collecting and organizing all of the evidence from the police investigation as well as all of the medical documentation to help support your claim.
