Personal injury is an area of law that encompasses car accidents, slip and fall, criminal acts resulting injury, dog bites, negligent security, bed bugs, truck accidents, school bus accidents, motorcycle accidents, nursing home abuse, almost anything where a person has been hurt at the fault of another. We have handled many types of these cases and would be honored to help you or your loved one.
It is important to talk to an attorney as soon as possible to make sure you are not foregoing any of your rights. For example, you must seek medical treatment within 14 days of the accident or your insurance company could deny you certain benefits. Contact us today to learn more.
It’s also important to remember that you may still have a case even if you were cited for the accident. Florida Law does, however, require that you demonstrate that you have a “permanent injury” before the insurance companies are liable to pay you anything for your injuries. If you make a full recovery, you may not be able to recover anything! Most people do not understand (or believe) that when we explain it. So it is almost always in your best interests to at least consult with an experienced personal injury attorney prior to making a demand to the insurance company or expecting that you will get reimbursed without the proper medical documentation.
Please do not misunderstand this concept, however. Even if you have not suffered a broken bone, scarring, burns or paralysis, you still may have a good claim for damages. In car accidents, for example, personal injury protection (or PIP) may not cover all of your medical expenses. When another person’s negligence harms you and your family, it is highly advisable to talk to an attorney right away to protect your rights.
