If you or a loved one have been injured in an automobile accident you may need an experienced auto accident attorney who will aggressively pursue the compensation you and your loved ones deserve.
After an auto accident it may seem impossible to get your life back. Injuries take a toll on the physical and mental well-being of an accident victim. Even minor injuries can result in lost wages, mounting medical costs, and increased stress in your personal life. It is important to know your legal options to protect your right to compensation for your injuries.
Negligence and Automobile Accidents
Negligence occurs when another party fails to exercise their duty of care toward you and others. Duty of care is the responsibility everyone has to ensure that they do not take risky or unnecessary actions that can harm another person or property. If someone fails to uphold their duty of care, that makes them negligent and thus liable for whatever damages they cause. If your accident happened due to the negligence of another party, the law entitles you to file a claim against them. Auto accidents are the third leading cause of death in Florida, following only heart disease and cancer. But unlike many health conditions, auto accidents are largely preventable.
Dealing with Insurance Companies on Your Own
Even if the law is on your side, that does not mean you are automatically guaranteed compensation. It is difficult to fight for compensation on your own, especially against an insurance company that has a lot of legal resources. It is in your best interest to hire an auto accident lawyer that can assist you in getting the financial compensation you deserve.
Why Hire an Experienced Auto Accident Attorney?
An experienced auto accident attorney will often get significantly more compensation than the insurance companies initially offer. It is a common practice for insurance companies to initially offer unrealistically low settlements. Often, it takes extensive and aggressive legal negotiation and potential litigation to obtain fair and just compensation. If you or a loved one has suffered any of the following, you may be entitled to compensation for your injuries:
- Distracted Driving Accidents
- Drunk Driving Accidents
- Motorcycle Accidents
- Rollover Accidents
- Speeding Accidents
- Texting & Driving Accidents
- Trucking Accidents
Auto Accident attorneys know the law and have experience negotiating with insurance companies, and they know what your injuries are worth. Some personal injury attorneys have trial experience and can go to trial if necessary. The insurance companies know who these trial lawyers are. Not all attorneys have trial experience. Having an experienced trial attorney representing you will influence insurance companies to make a fair settlement offer and avoid going to trial.
