No matter how many lines of insurance coverage are available to you as the passenger in a car accident, you cannot recover more than the total value of your claim (the total amount of your damages). Collisions can occur with other automobiles, other vehicles such as bicycles or trucks, with pedestrians, and with stationary structures or objects, such as trees or road signs. An experienced lawyer can help you conveniently file petitions for your claim in the Motor Accident Claims Tribunals. Do not be fooled by the adjuster or your own pride into believing that you are able to handle the situation on your own. Our attorneys have had extensive experience and success in negotiations, litigation in state and federal courts, and in appeals for people who’ve been injured.
Clients tell us they are happy to let our specialist handle the details of their auto repair or replacement for them. It has been our experience that we usually negotiate a higher settlement for your claim, including recovery for medical expenses, pain and suffering and lost wages. A motor vehicle accident can result from simple driver error or negligent acts such as drunk driving, which may warrant legal action so that victims in these cases may receive just compensation for damages or car wreck injuries. Our lawyers for an auto accident injury in Florida have represented people with very serious cases where our client has had to be taken immediately by helicopter or ambulance to the hospital. If the driver of the vehicle you were in or motorcycle you were on carries bodily injury insurance coverage and was at least partially responsible for causing the accident, you can also bring a claim pursuant to that coverage.
