Car Accidents

If you have been injured in a car accident, you may have a claim against the driver of the other vehicles involved, and any other negligent party involved in the collision. Immediately get medical treatment within the first 14 days after the accident occurs.

Contact our office so that we can help you navigate the process and guide you in the steps to take following an accident. We are here to help you in many ways including:

  • Determine the insurance coverage, and all potential defendants
  • Coordinate the property damage claims process
  • Obtain necessary police reports, medical records, and other documentation to strengthen your case
  • Communicate and negotiate on your behalf with the insurance company
  • Work with doctors to get you a diagnosis, and the best medical treatment possible
  • Many cases can, and do, get settled outside of court. However, if after determining that filing a lawsuit is necessary, we will file a lawsuit on your behalf.
  • Advocate on your behalf to protect your interests, and make every effort to get you the maximum legal compensation possible for your unique case

No one is ever prepared for an accident, or its aftermath. Accidents can happen at any time, or place. Serious injuries, doctor visits, unexpected and mounting medical bills, and missed days of work are overwhelming enough. You can rely on us to deal with the big and powerful insurance companies, who routinely seek to deny claims or undervalue your injuries. We have the experience and expertise to stand up to the insurance companies for you, and to get the best possible settlement for your case.

Coverage

When you are injured in an automobile accident in Florida, regardless of who caused the accident, you may pursue coverage of the first $10,000.00 of medical bills through your PIP insurance. After that, an injured party may be compensated by the “at fault” party’s bodily injury coverage. Bodily injury coverage can range anywhere from $10,000.00 to millions of dollars. In instances where there is not enough bodily injury coverage, or no bodily injury coverage at all, uninsured or underinsured motorist coverage provides coverage to an individual injured in an automobile accident. However, if there is no underinsured or uninsured motorist coverage, it still may be possible to pursue compensation through the negligent party’s homeowners insurance, your personal insurance carrier, or your health insurance.

Liability

We handle all types of car accident cases. Factors that are considered when assessing whether another driver was negligent include:

  • Speed of the other vehicle
  • Texting and driving
  • Rear-ending another driver, or side-swiping another driver
  • Reckless driving, such as a failure to obey traffic signs or signals
  • Drunk driving or driving while under the influence of other drugs
  • Impaired driving due to lack of sleep
  • Driving with prior knowledge of serious medical conditions
