Things You May Need To Deal With Following An Auto Accident In Florida

When serious car crashes occur, vehicles get totaled, and people get hurt. And nobody is talking about a few minor bumps and bruises here or there. Instead, the injuries are severe and sometimes take weeks, months, or years to overcome. Sometimes, victims can never overcome symptoms and have to deal with them for the rest of their lives. The point is that things aren't always pretty after accidents.

That's why you may need to hire an experienced car accident attorney with offices near you following a crash with a negligent driver. You might have the grounds to seek compensation afterward. So why file a lawsuit against a reckless motorist? Because you did nothing wrong and shouldn't have to pay for their mistake, that's why. Sure, their insurance company is supposed to take care of your damages, but it is not uncommon for insurers to give the injured the run-around.

There are different reasons why you might choose to take legal action. However, money is usually the one that takes the cake. You'll probably need to deal with certain things, and unfortunately, nothing in this world is free. Hence, we'll discuss some of them to help you understand why it might be in your best interest to seek compensation.

Property Damage

First of all, as mentioned, cars get totaled in wrecks. If that happens, you'll have to replace your ride, and nothing about modern vehicles are cheap. The restitution you receive from the lawsuit can help you cover this expense. Or, let's say, your car doesn't get totaled. Rather, it gets dented, beat up, and needs repairs. That's great, but body shop work can also be pretty pricey. Hence, you might not be able to afford the restoration without obtaining money from the responsible party.

Bodily Injuries

You can also sustain severe injuries in an auto accident. The types of ailments will vary from one incident to the next. However, they might include:

• Fractures and broken bones
• Neck, back, and spine injuries
• Traumatic brain injury

Obviously, that list barely even begins to scratch the surface, and you can become injured in a host of different ways because of a car crash. Not only will you have to deal with the pain and discomfort associated with these issues, but you'll also have to pay for medical treatments-i.e. hospital stays, surgeries, and medications. You know, items that can leave you feeling like you're spending a small fortune today. Therefore, injuries and medical bills are other reasons why legal action may be right for you following a crash.

Physical Therapy

Physical therapy of PT is often necessary after car crashes. It can help the injured recover quicker than they would just sitting at home. The processes can also teach people skills that they might have forgotten because of accidents. For instance, after a brain injury, a person might have to be taught to eat or walk again. In addition, new skills can be learned in PT to help the injured cope with their conditions. Of course, as with everything else discussed here, physical therapy can be costly too. That's why you might need to seek compensation to pay for it.

Did you know that you may not be able to work after a car crash? It's true. That means lost wages can enter the picture as well. Would you like to find out if you have a personal injury claim?

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.
