Being in a car accident can be scary, but the aftermath of that accident can be just as terrifying and confusing. Car accidents can happen to anyone at any time. It is impossible to anticipate. At any given moment, your entire life can be turned upside down as the result of someone else’s carelessness. No matter how safe of a driver you may be, there are always drivers on the road who are careless and who have the potential to cause serious accidents. Even though you may not be at fault, you may still be left with serious injuries, medical expenses and an insurance company that does not want to pay for those claims. The insurance company immediately begins its investigation with the hope of limiting the amount of your recovery on behalf of their insured. You are alone and inexperienced, battling insurance adjusters to decide how to obtain and pay for necessary medical treatment. How do you begin to evaluate your claim for damages, injuries, harms and losses?
Car accidents can result in serious injuries or even death. It is not uncommon for victims of auto accidents to require extensive hospital stays, rehabilitation and even multiple surgical procedures. Spinal cord injuries and brain injuries usually require a lifetime of care and have the potential to bankrupt a family. You may lose significant income as the result of being out of work due to your injuries, and you may not know when you will be able to return to work. Additionally, you may need to repair or replace your car.
Florida automobile accident law allows you to recover for the injuries and property damages that you sustained as the direct result of someone else’s negligent operation of a motor vehicle. Damages from these claims can include property damage, medical expenses, loss of income and future earnings as well as pain and suffering. However, it can be very difficult to handle a car accident while struggling to obtain the necessary medical treatment. That is why you need the help of an experienced Florida accident attorney.
