Car accidents are serious and can cause devastating injuries, as well as significant financial strain. After an auto accident, you may be unsure of where to turn, especially when the medical bills begin to pile up.
Dealing With Insurance Companies
Insurance companies will often attempt to offer you a settlement in order to avoid going to court. However, the settlement is almost always a fraction of the physical and emotional costs of an auto accident.
It is imperative that you speak with a qualified Florida attorney as soon as possible following your accident, before accepting any offer that the insurance company makes.
Car Accident Claims
Auto accident claims can be separated into a few different types, and each has its own details.
- Wrongful Death Claims – A wrongful death lawsuit can be filed if you have lost a loved one in an auto accident. If it can be proved that their death was the result of another person’s negligence, you may have a right to compensation.
- Negligence Claims – This is the most common claim that is filed after an auto accident. It is used when the other party has negligently or recklessly operated their vehicle, causing the accident and its subsequent injuries.
- Manufacturer Liability Claims – If a vehicle’s defect has caused or contributed to your accident, you may be able to file a claim against the manufacturer of the car or its parts.
