Recovering Damages from Insurance Companies and At-Fault Drivers
Florida is a no-fault state, which means your insurance pays compensation for the injuries you sustain in a car crash regardless of who was to blame for the accident. Referred to as Personal Injury Protection, or PIP, your no-fault insurance covers you up to the limit of your policy.
However, you face many roadblocks to collect the maximum amount of compensation you are entitled to.
First, insurance companies are corporations with the primary purpose of making money. Your insurance company has every incentive to pay you the least compensation possible and they often use tactics like denying a valid claim, delaying approval of a claim and lowballing the offer to help their bottom line.
In addition, you may have grounds to sue another driver who caused the automobile accident. For example, the other driver may have been texting, in violation of Florida statute. Or, the driver may have been intoxicated, which could also make the bar that served the drunk driver liable under Florida’s dram shop law. Pursuing damages from the other driver or a third party is particularly important if your losses are greater than the limit of your policy.
Why You Need Experienced Representation
Our law firm thoroughly investigates your car crash to determine who is liable and to calculate your damages. We then take decisive actions designed to move your case forward toward an equitable settlement or trial.
Depending upon the facts of you case, we may pursue damages for medical bills, lost income, diminished earning capacity, disability, pain, suffering and car repairs and expenses.
In light of today’s skyrocketing medical costs, you may have incurred debt as a result of your car crash. We also negotiate with the hospitals, doctors and rehabilitation facilities that provided your care to lower your bills.
