Car Accidents In Sarasota County Florida

Car accidents are not rare, and we at Goldman Babboni Fernandez & Walsh know just how common these can be all throughout the state of Florida. To place Sarasota County under the microscope in terms of traffic accidents a few recent statistics can put into perspective just how likely it may be to find yourself the victim in a vehicle crash.

On June 20th, 2015 alone, between the hours of 10 pm and 12 am, there were 4 car accidents reported by Florida Highway Patrol within the Sarasota region. Out of these four, two were considered a hit and run, and one came with reported injuries to the occupants of the vehicle. Now, this is only one small portion of the state of Florida, and a two hour window, but 4 car accidents occurred all within this small frame of time and space.

In the year 2013, over 30,000 individuals lost their lives in vehicle crashes across the United States, and this statistic doesn’t count the countless individuals who have found themselves injured in some way. What this, coupled with the Sarasota area’s Florida Highway Patrol reporting, shows is that finding yourself in the situation of a car crash is probably far more likely than you may realize.

When a car accident occurs, and you or a loved one are left injured, mortally or otherwise, you will require some type of legal representation should you wish to be compensated for your injuries or loss. Going up against big insurance companies with skilled attorneys can be tough in getting what you need out of a case, and only a professional Florida personal injury lawyer should be trusted with giving your case its best chance.

Physical Damages

When in a car accident, or if you have a loved one who lost their life in an accident, physical damages may be collected in order to cover the costs of medical expenses, lost wages, future medical needs, or any other type of expense relating to the crash. These damages collected for the physical injuries you or a loved one has faced can help immensely in aiding you out of medical debt and on your way to a better recovery. In instances of car accidents, the need of long-term care is a real and serious one, and the costs of this care can really build up as your recovery period goes on.

Emotional Damages

In incidents of car accidents, emotional damages may also be awarded. Whether you’ve been injured, or a loved one lost their life in the accident, damages may be collected for the emotional distress you may have faced. Car accidents can be traumatizing experiences, particularly if they’re serious enough to cause injury or death, and this trauma can take years to overcome. The cost of therapy and the wages you’re losing during your emotional recovery can be losses recouped when you have the right representation to make your case in a Florida court of law.

Importance Of An Attorney In Car Accident Cases

As previously stated, car accident cases are not a rarity, and insurance companies will be bringing their own attorneys to court to ensure any payout can be minimized. With a skilled personal injury or wrongful death lawyer on your side, you can have your best chance at collecting all of the damages you require to recover well, rather than having to foot the bill yourself.

What your attorney will do is fight for you in the courts from the beginning to the end, as well as teach you about the court system, collecting evidence, and how your case will be best presented to the courts.

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.
