What Should You Do if You are Injured in a Car Accident During the Holidays?

While we don’t have to contend with winter weather in South Florida, the Holiday Season still brings an increased risk for car accidents. From more people being on the road to more people making the unfortunate – and extremely dangerous – decision to drink and drive, there are several reasons why we tend to see a spike in car accidents during the winter months.

As you celebrate the holidays, the last thing you want to do is spend time in a doctor’s office or on the phone with your auto insurance company. But, if you have been injured in an accident, you do need to make your recovery a priority. With this in mind, here are five tips for dealing with your car accident while still making the most of the Holiday Season:

5 Tips for Dealing with a Car Accident During the Holiday Season

Tip #1: See a Doctor Promptly

The sooner you see a doctor, the sooner you can start getting better. If you put this off, not only could your pain and other symptoms become worse during the holidays, but you could also find it much more difficult to obtain insurance coverage for your medical expenses, lost income and other losses.

Tip #2: Ask Your Doctor if You Need to Stay Home from Work

When seeking medical attention for your injuries, be sure to ask your doctor if you need to stay home from work. If rest is an important component of your recovery (as is often the case with traumatic injuries), you will be entitled to compensation for any days you spend at home during the Holiday Season.  

Tip #3: File Your Insurance Claim

While you might not want to deal with your insurance company during the holidays, filing your claim now will serve two important purposes: (i) it will preserve your ability to recover financial compensation, and (ii) it will ensure that you are able to secure compensation as soon after the holidays as possible.

Tip #4: Don’t Dwell on the Accident or Your Injuries

Although it is important to take care of yourself and protect your right to coverage, it is also important not to dwell on the accident or your injuries. Once you do what you need to, be sure to give yourself a break and spend meaningful time with your friends and family.

Tip #5: Hire a Car Accident Lawyer to Handle your Insurance Claim for You

If you have an insurance claim, you do not have to handle your claim on your own. Instead, you can hire a lawyer to handle your claim for you. While you will still need to remain involved, your lawyer can do what is necessary to protect your rights during the Holiday Season; and then, once the holidays are over, you can shift your focus back to securing the compensation you deserve.

Client Testimonial

"Even when I was not able to get a physician to follow up with me for a broken bone following a car accident, the Maus firm, in particular Rocio, worked hard on my behalf and reached a good settlement for me. This was accomplished long distance, as the accident happened in Florida and I live in Indiana. They worked on my case for 3 years and did not give up."
