An automobile accident can leave you with a wide range of medical and financial problems, including big medical bills, lost income, pain, and disabilities. The last thing you need is the additional stress of hassling with insurance companies. If someone else was at fault for your accident, it is important to have an experienced attorney to help you deal with insurance companies and the complexities of the legal system. Our job is to alleviate your stress and help you navigate the complex process of getting the financial compensation you deserve.
What to do After an Auto Accident:
If you have been involved in a car accident, there are several steps you should take to protect your personal and financial interests.
- Call 911 to report the accident and get medical attention immediately.
- Get names of witnesses and their contact information.
- Take pictures of the scene, the damage to vehicles and any injuries you and others may have.
- Notify your insurance company. Do not speak with any other insurance company regarding the accident.
- Keep notes of details of the accident and its impact on your life.
Compensation for Auto Accident Injury Cases:
How much is your car crash injury case worth? That is a question we hear often. The answer is that every case is different. Your compensation will depend on the severity of your injuries and their impact on your life; the amount of medical bills, the negligence of the at-fault driver, and the individual “story” of the case. The value of a personal injury case is developed over time as evidence is collected and injuries are diagnosed and treated. We understand the complexities of the insurance and legal system and will work hard to obtain the compensation you deserve. We are also aware of the pain, suffering and many issues that come with motor vehicle accidents. Your injuries can keep you out of work as well as affect your daily routine and life in general. You may be entitled to receive compensation for the following:
- Medical expenses
- Lost wages
- Pain and suffering
- Reduced earnings due to long-term injuries
Finding the Right Lawyer to Represent You:
People often think that hiring a lawyer is expensive. We work on a contingency fee basis, which means you owe us nothing unless we win your case. Then the fee will be based on a percentage as allowed by the rules and ethics of the Florida Bar. Most Florida auto injury cases are settled without going to court. But when choosing a personal injury attorney for your accident, it is important to know what kind of trial experience your lawyer can offer if your case does require litigation. Our experienced trial attorneys will work diligently to get you the compensation you deserve. Most importantly, find an attorney who you are comfortable discussing with in what offer will turn out to be a long term work relationship that will continue for as much as a year or more, one who is available and accessible; and who will treat you with courtesy and respect and will give you and your case the time and attention it deserves. We are personal injury attorneys who take your personal injuries personally. Meet with us for a free consultation before you decide who is the best attorney to represent you.
