We deal with the stress of fighting for justice after an accident, so our clients can focus on recovery.”

There have been a number of accidents with critical injuries or death reported in Tampa Bay so far this year. In most cases, the victims of the car, motorcycle or truck accident are faced with vehicle damage, mounting medical bills and missed workdays because of another driver’s negligence.

“It is disheartening to see victims of auto accidents overwhelmed by the physical and financial damage of the accident to fight for justice. Compensation from an auto accident may not be reached unless an experienced attorney is involved." Edward D. Carlson, Clearwater injury attorney and co-founder of Carlson, Meissner, Hart & Hayslett P.A. said. “By providing a comfortable, trustworthy client-lawyer relationship, we deal with the stress of fighting for justice, so our clients can focus on recovery.”

What to do if you've been in a car accident
After an accident, victims should be wise about getting contact information from the other driver and insurance company information. Gather contact information from any witnesses. Victims should document the scene by taking photographs and recount any physical damage to themselves or their property.

If you or a passenger in your vehicle has received injuries, go to the emergency room or physician's office as soon as possible. Be mindful of injuries that may present several days or even weeks after the accident and be sure to get them checked by a physician as well. Following the accident, contact a knowledgeable accident attorney for legal guidance seeking monetary damages related to the crash.
