If you have been involved in an auto accident, don't wait to contact a lawyer. When you call the car accident attorneys at Jiles Law P.A., we will investigate your case and work to reach a settlement or advocate for you in court if needed. Navigating the legal system after an auto accident can be complicated and intimidating, but we'll be by your side throughout the entire process.
There are steps you should take immediately after a car accident; however, serious vehicle accidents require an experienced attorney to handle the special legal issues involved in these types of claims. Our law firm has experienced lawyers in handling cases with vehicle accidents, especially cases where a person has suffered significant injuries as a result of the negligence of another driver.
Motor vehicle accident victims deal with many issues trying to put their lives back together. The vehicle needs to be repaired or totaled, the victim needs medical treatment and someone to pay for that medical treatment, and the victim will need to be reimbursed for lost wages for any work missed due to injuries.
In Florida, we have a system called no-fault automobile insurance. Our system requires your insurance company to pay a certain portion of benefits to you after you have been involved in a car accident, regardless of who is at fault for the accident. These benefits are called personal injury protection benefits, and they include payments for medical expenses, mileage to and from medical appointments, and lost wages.
Insurance adjusters will often tell you that you do not need an attorney for your serious injuries from an accident. They may even tell you that it is their job to help pick up the pieces after an injury has disrupted your life. Before you believe what they tell you, you need to consult with an experienced and well-prepared attorney.
The only way to protect yourself and your rights is to consult an attorney who is experienced in these matters and has a track record of fighting against insurance companies. Without that legal advantage, you may find yourself at a serious disadvantage when it is time to resolve your claim with the insurance company.
