Experienced Legal Guidance for Automobile Accident Victims
An automobile accident can change your life instantly, regardless of who is at fault. Even a minor accident can cause severe injuries or loss of life. Getting adequate compensation for recovery can be challenging if you are the victim of a collision or a family member who has lost a loved one. Insurance companies often use tactics to deny and devalue claims. An experienced personal injury attorney can help you recover compensation for the full extent of the injuries, wrongful death, or property loss.
The Davies Law Firm, LLC strongly advocates for automobile accident victims and their families. We have the skills and resources to stand up to insurance companies to maximize recovery. Our law firm’s founder, Attorney Kathleen Davies, has a strong track record of success. She has over thirty-five years of experience in civil and criminal law. If you have been harmed or lost a loved one in a car accident, let us help you get the compensation you deserve.
Who is Responsible?
At The Davies Law Firm, LLC, we work diligently to identify all liable parties in a crash. You can potentially file a claim against any party or parties who contributed to the accident. Liable parties may include the driver of another vehicle or the driver of your car if you are a passenger. A passenger might be responsible if they act recklessly, causing the driver to be distracted. When an employee drives unsafely, their employer may have vicarious liability for the accident. An automobile manufacturer or mechanic may be responsible if the vehicle has defects that contribute to a crash. Bicyclists, pedestrians, or other persons might be liable if they cause a distraction on the roadway. When construction or poor signage contributes to an accident, state and local municipalities may be named defendants in a lawsuit.
Common Types of Car Accidents are:
- Rear-End Collisions
- T-bone Crashes
- Head-On Crashes
- Single Vehicle Accidents
- Multi-Car Accidents
Florida is a No-Fault State
Under Florida’s No-Fault laws, accident victims are compensated by their insurance carrier for medical care, regardless of who was at fault. All Florida automobile drivers must have Personal Injury Protection (PIP) insurance for every registered vehicle. For medical expenses exceeding PIP insurance limits and for property damages, a victim may file a claim against the at-fault parties. In cases involving uninsured or underinsured motorists, you may be entitled to compensation under your insurance policy.
Common injuries sustained in an automobile accident are traumatic brain injuries, neck and spinal cord injuries, paralysis, burns, fractures, lacerations, whiplash, amputations, internal injuries, and disfigurement. In the worst-case scenario, catastrophic injuries can lead to permanent disability or loss of life.
Insurance Settlements and Court-Ordered Awards may include:
- Past and future medical bills and expenses
- Lost wages
- Physical pain and suffering
- Permanent disability
- Disfigurement and scarring
- Loss of earning potential
- Punitive damages
- Emotional distress
- Property damages
In wrongful death cases, there is additional compensation for families that have lost a loved one in an automobile accident. Families can be compensated for funeral expenses, loss of consortium, loss of wages, and other compensation. While no amount of money can reverse what has happened or make up for your loss, a settlement or award can help ease the financial challenges resulting from a loss.
Common Causes of Traffic Accidents:
- Road rage
- Weather Conditions
- Distracted driving
- Poor Road Conditions
- Poor Road Signage
- Vehicle Defects
