Immediately after a car wreck, your first priority should be ensuring the safety of yourself and everyone around you. Contact the police and stay clear of any oncoming traffic if that is possible. If each driver, passenger and bystander is safe, try to exchange insurance details with the other parties and obtain contact information with any witnesses. Recording details and impressions of the scene can help your case, but there’s no need to determine who was at fault: nothing can be decided at that point. Our firm can take the information you’ve gathered and construct a calculated strategy to win your lawsuit or emerge with a fair settlement.
Automobile accidents can cause back and neck damage, traumatic brain injuries and even permanent harm, such as paralysis. These conditions can lead to massive medical bills and lost wages. Florida is a no-fault insurance state for automobile accidents, so a Florida injury victim’s own insurance company usually pays for medical treatment and other associated costs no matter who caused the collision. Accordingly, each driver in the state must carry a personal injury policy that covers at least $10,000 in damages per person per crash. However, a victim can file a personal injury lawsuit against the faulty party if the harm is considered to be serious. Qualifying conditions include loss of bodily function, permanent injury, scarring and disfigurement. Dealing with a medical crisis is a challenge, but attorney Joshua Winegar is an accomplished auto accident litigator who will help you explore your options and uphold your rights.
