Whether you're on I-75, 441, or the numerous side roads in and around Venice, you have to stay vigilant and keep yourself safe. But sometimes, the unthinkable happens. If you're involved in a car crash in Venice, your life can quickly be thrown into disarray.
The heavy financial cost of an accident can quickly add up to be a burden too large for most to bear. Our law offices can stand up to the insurance companies and bullies on the other side and fight for your rights, getting you the compensation that you're owed.
Understanding Fault In Florida, those injured in a crash have the right to seek compensation if they can show that the other party acted negligently or recklessly.
In auto accidents, this can include a wide range of different things including:
- Drunk driving
- Distracted driving
- Violating other traffic regulations
- Failure to maintain a vehicle for safety
- And more
Basically, you need to show that the other party acted in a way that any reasonable person would consider reckless or negligent. Our lawyers have experience in proving this, and we'll show that you aren't to blame for your accident - and that you deserve justice.
What About PIP?
It's true that Florida motorists are all required to carry PIP in order to operate a motor vehicle. PIP also pays out regardless of who is at fault in the accident. But, what is important to note is that PIP only pays for a percentage of your costs after an accident.
Specifically, it only covers up to 80% of medical bills and up to 60% of lost wages. This is only a fraction of what your total costs could be, and in some cases PIP may not even provide that much. In short, if your accident isn't your fault, you deserve to be secure financially and not have to shoulder that burden on your own. How We Prove Fault When you contact us to hire a Venice auto accident attorney, you'll get results.
Our team uses a variety of different steps to help show that you deserve compensation. These include the following:
- Mobile phone records
- Police reports
- Witness statements
- Past driving histories
- Security camera footage
- Recreations of the accident scene
- Photos when available
- And more
We also contact and work with numerous experts in various fields to not only show that the other party is to blame, but also to get the best possible settlement amount for you.
Damages You May Be Owed
What damages could you be owed in a personal injury accident lawsuit? It will vary greatly, but several of the following factors are often used to determine what a fair settlement offer is:
- Lost wages
- Future potential lost wages
- Medical costs
- Future potential medical costs
- Compensation for pain and suffering
- Punitive damages
- And more
Your Venice auto accident attorney will review your case and help you determine what a fair settlement offer is, and then negotiate to get you that settlement. If we can't reach a fair agreement, we have no problem heading to court and fighting for your rights.
Don't Get Pushed Around Insurance companies and legal teams for the other side often use tactics to avoid paying you what you deserve. These tactics can include:
- Bullying techniques
- Threats of nonpayment
- Low settlement offers
- Needless red tape and documentation
Their deep pockets make it easier for them to do this, and they don't care that you're struggling to recover from injuries that weren't your fault. But our reputation for fighting for our clients means that you'll instantly get more respect from the other side and that they'll be far more likely to stop the bullying and start trying to negotiate a settlement both sides can agree on. You've already been injured - you shouldn't be pushed around as well.
