8 QUESTIONS YOU MAY FACE AFTER A SERIOUS AUTO ACCIDENT
Florida highways are a crowded place. There are more than 16 million registered drivers statewide. That number doesn’t include the thousands of out-of-state guests who visit the Sunshine State throughout the year.
On any given day, there are more than 1,000 traffic accidents throughout Florida. As more and more people move into Marion County, Ocala and the surrounding area, the frequency and severity of crashes on our roads – including I-75 (Florida’s Turnpike), US 27, US 301, US 401 and State Road 40 – increases. There were more than 6,300 crashes in Marion County alone in 2016, causing more than 4,000 injuries, according to Florida Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles.
If you’re in a minor accident, you may not suffer any injuries, or you may just have some minor bumps and bruises. In that case, the personal injury policy under your auto insurance will cover the damages.
However, if you suffer permanent injuries, a loss of bodily function, or significant or permanent scarring in an injury, it’s in your best interest to talk with a lawyer. The auto accident attorneys in Ocala, Florida, at the Rothenburg Law Firm can help you fight the insurance companies and answer these 8 common questions that most people have after serious auto accidents:

- When do I have a duty to cooperate with the insurance company?
