Aggressive Yet Affordable Car Accident Personal Injury Attorneys Serving Brandon and Tampa
Becoming injured in an auto accident can lead to numerous long-term repercussions for all parties involved, especially if 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, whether you or the other driver was in a car, truck, or motorcycle , and you suffer an injury as a direct result, your own personal injury protection (PIP) insurance covers your medical expenses. However, he coverage for medical expenses under this policy 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.
If the other driver is insured and has additional medical insurance coverage, you may be able to seek coverage through their policy. Unfortunately, Florida has one of the highest rates of uninsured drivers in the nation. As a result, many injured drivers are left with looming medical bills.
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. The attorneys at the Law Office of Shamika are true advocates for clients injured in a car accident, negotiating (and going to trial when necessary) in order to not only get a fair settlement but also justice for the wrong done to you caused by another’s negligence.
Seeking Legal Advice From A Personal Injury Lawyer
By contacting a car 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 a car accident caused by another’s negligence or willful wrong doing. A skilled personal injury lawyer 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.
