Florida car accident claims can be complicated as a result of no-fault rules in the state. However, those who are seriously injured or whose loved ones are killed in a car accident do have the right to make a claim for compensation from the person who hurt them. Injured victims are protected after car accidents and you need to enforce your legal rights.
An Orlando car accident lawyer at Steinger, Iscoe & Greene can provide car accident victims or surviving family members with invaluable advice after an auto accident. Whether you need help dealing with your own insurer or making a personal injury claim against a driver who hurt you, our attorneys are here for you.
Under Florida no-fault rules, you must notify your insurer when you are involved in a car accident and you must receive a prompt medical diagnosis of any injuries resulting from the crash. For more minor injuries, a no-fault insurance claim may be made to allow you to get a portion of your lost wages covered and to get your medical bills paid. These no-fault claims are made with your own insurer and paid under your personal injury protection (PIP) policy, and you can make a claim no matter who was to blame for the crash.
When you sustain more serious or costly injuries, on the other hand, you may need broader compensation. You may need to have money to pay medical bills that exceed your no-fault coverage and you may have a lifetime of lost wages if your injuries prevent you from returning to work or if your loved one died in the crash. You may also experience significant pain and suffering and emotional stress from an accident.
You deserve all of these types of compensation if someone else causes your crash. Florida law allows you to obtain payment for these losses and damages through a car accident claim or a personal injury lawsuit, and an Orlando auto accident attorney can help.
Steinger, Iscoe & Greene attorneys can help you in many ways, including:
Representing you in no-fault insurance claims
Taking action for bad faith against your insurer if your insurance company refuses to be reasonable in paying out your claim
Negotiating on your behalf with the insurance company of a driver who causes you to be involved in a car accident so you can pursue an out-of-court settlement to cover your losses
Gathering evidence to build a strong car accident case and prove the other driver was at fault for your wreck
Filing a personal injury or wrongful death lawsuit and representing you in court to help you obtain damages from the driver responsible for your accident
In these and other situations, the goal is to ensure that all of your car accident losses are covered and that you take full advantage of the protections available to you under Florida law.
