Auto Accident Personal Injury Attorney Serving Brandon and Tampa

Becoming injured in an auto accident can lead to numerous long-term repercussions for all parties involved, especially is a physical injury is sustained. Car accidents that result in minimal property damage, like fender benders can easily and fairly be settled between each party’s car insurance provider. However, if one party does not have insurance or a bodily injury is sustained, then things can get complicated fast.

When you are involved in an accident, like a car or motorcycle accident, and you suffer an injury from it, your own personal injury protection (PIP) insurance covers your medical expenses. Although this insurance is legally required in the State of Florida, Florida does have one of the highest rates of uninsured drivers. In addition, the coverage for medical expenses is limited to $10,000. This amount can easily be reached, and if you did not purchase additional medical coverage, then you are responsible for the remaining medical costs.

To reduce the financial burden of this, you do have the right to seek compensation from the other party involved in the accident, or rather, their insurance company. However, if you were determined to be at fault for the accident, your ability to receive assistance from the other party is nearly non-existent. If the other party does not have insurance and were at fault for the accident, receiving compensations will also be difficult if the individual has limited financial income (which is usually the case when insurance was not purchased).

Seeking Legal Advice From A Personal Injury Lawyer

By contacting an auto accident attorney, you can get an understanding of what your legal options are and proceed with a personal injury claim if it is in your best interest.

You are entitled to compensation when you’ve been hurt or injured as a result of your car accident. A skilled attorney can help you claim that compensation. Compensation in auto accident cases usually includes:

  • Previous, current, and future medical expenses for the treatment of your auto accident related injuries.
  • Pain and suffering you have experienced because of the car accident and subsequent injuries.
  • Lost wages as a result of a hospital stay, medical treatment, loss of your vehicle/transportation, disability, or other inability to perform job functions caused by the accident.
  • Damage to the vehicle as well as other property stored in your vehicle during the time of the accident (i.e. car seats, valuable personal items)

How A Car Crash Lawyer Can Be Of Assistance

Insurance companies (even your own) never tell you all you need to know and quite frankly, they are never really on your side when it comes to an auto accident personal injury claim. Insurance companies will often offer you compensation to take care of your current medical expenses – it may even seem like a reasonable amount; however, do not agree to or sign anything from the insurance company until first reviewing the settlement offer with a personal injury attorney. You are hiring the attorney, so they will be looking out for your best interests. After reviewing the facts and evidence of your case, they will advise on whether your settlement offer is adequate or not.
