The Right To Compensation

Under current Florida laws, motorists have the right to seek financial compensation for their injuries if they can show that the other party was reckless or negligent and that those reckless or negligent actions directly caused the accident.

This can mean a lot of different things, but examples of reckless and negligent behavior in a car crash includes:

  • Drunk driving
  • Texting while driving
  • Speeding or violating other traffic regulations
  • Failing to maintain a vehicle for safe operation

Additionally, in some instances not only the driver may be held liable, but others as well. For instance, if a city knows about a dangerous condition on a road but doesn't put up warning signs or work to correct the safety risk, they could be held responsible as well.

The best way to know for sure whether or not you have the right to seek financial restitution is to contact our office today and speak to our Bradenton auto accident attorney. We handle the entire process for you, and you never pay until we win your case.

What About PIP?

PIP coverage is required of all Florida motorists, and it is intended to provide help to a motorist regardless of who is at fault for the accident. However, it only covers a percentage of the costs you may experience - 80% of medical costs, for example.

Additionally, PIP coverage only provides a fraction of the lost wages related to an injury, and even it can be difficult to receive quickly. Add to this the fact that your finances can be destroyed by an accident that wasn't even your fault, and it's clear that looking beyond just filing a PIP claim is something you need to consider doing.

How Are Settlements Determined?

A lot of different variables go into determining what a fair settlement offer is. It's very common for insurance companies to offer lowball settlement offers in the hopes that you'll accept immediately, thus negating your ability to get what you're actually, fairly owed. Some of the following factors will impact a settlement offer:

  • Lost wages due to time missed at work because of your injuries
  • Future estimated lost wages related to future problems with the injuries
  • Medical bills
  • Future potential medical costs
  • Pain and suffering
  • Punitive damages

Punitive damages aren't as commonly applied but could be used to punish the responsible party and to help ensure that others don't act in the same way in the future. Our team will work with professionals in various fields to help determine your future potential losses related to the accident and come up with a settlement figure that is fair. Then, we don't stop fighting until we get what you deserve.

Standing Up To The Bullies

When you're in an accident, it's easy to be overwhelmed by emotions and stress. Often, the representatives for the other side have deep pockets and plenty of time. They'll use that to bully you into accepting settlements that aren't fair or simply refuse to pay at all. Our legal team doesn't let that happen.

With decades of experience and a strong reputation for fighting for our clients, we'll stand up to the bullies and make sure that they don't push you around. You deserve to have your life back, and our team makes sure that it happens. Contact us today to get a free case evaluation and let us fight for you.

Client Testimonials

Attorney David Goldman has been exceptional in the process of helping me through the case. He has always been easy to reach, whether by phone or email, and has thorough knowledge and explains clearly in depth so you feel safe and confident in your lawyer

I used Michael Babboni and his paralegal, Nicole Moore for a legal matter. They went above and beyond my expectations. During the entire process there was constant communication with both Michael and Nicole. They were extremely organized and on top of my case, which I am very grateful for. Michael truly had my best interests at heart and he was very genuine. I plan on referring Michael to all family and friends and will continue to use him in the future.

I dealt most with Mr. Fernandez. I didn’t know a lot about this process. He took the time to speak with me individually, in person, to explain everything. It was very helpful to actually know and understand the process and what to expect. He closed my case quickly, which was nice that it was not prolonged! I appreciated his hard work and getting me what I felt I deserved after my car accident. I highly recommend him to anyone who needs an honest and reliable lawyer to assist you with your case!

I hired Mr. Walsh after an automobile accident this past March. He and his entire staff were extremely professional. They kept me informed every step of the way and settled my case in a timely manner. Thank you so much for your help.
