Types of Car Accident Cases We Handle
Our Pasco County car accident lawyers represent individuals and families in all types of cases. Whether someone ran you off the road, you got hit at an intersection, or someone pulled out in front of a loved one, we can use our experience to help maximize your financial recovery. We routinely represent clients in cases involving:
Personal Injury Protection (PIP) Claims
If you have been injured in a car accident in Pasco County, you will most likely need to file a claim under your personal injury protection (PIP) policy. In fact, if your injuries are relatively minor, filing a PIP claim could be your only option.
Personal injury protection policies provide “no fault” coverage. This means that your insurance company is supposed to pay regardless of who caused the accident. Unfortunately, insurance companies don’t make securing PIP coverage easy, and many accident victims struggle to obtain even minimal coverage. Our New Port Richey car accident lawyers can handle your PIP claim for you, and we can help make sure you receive the full coverage to which you are legally entitled.
Dangerous, Distracted, Drunk, and Drowsy Driving Accidents
The vast majority of car accidents result from driver negligence. This negligence can take a variety of forms—from speeding to driving under the influence, and from falling asleep to texting behind the wheel. These (and other) driving mistakes can lead to many different types of accidents, including:
- Head-On Collisions
- Hit-and-Run Accidents
- Intersection Collisions
- Merging and Lane-Change Accidents
- Multi-Vehicle Accidents
- Rear-End Collisions
- Side-Impact Collisions
- Single-Vehicle Accidents
- T-Bone Collisions
- Wrong-Way Accidents
If another driver is to blame for your injuries and your losses exceed your PIP coverage, you will need to talk to a Pasco County car accident lawyer to find out if you can file a claim with the driver’s insurer. Filing an auto insurance claim outside of PIP requires evidence of a “significant” or “permanent” injury. Our lawyers can determine if any of your injuries qualify; and, if they do (and the other driver has liability insurance), we can seek additional compensation under the at-fault driver’s policy.
Uninsured/Underinsured Motorist Claims
Unfortunately, Florida has one of the highest rates of uninsured drivers in the nation. This is partially due to the fact that Florida law does not require drivers to carry bodily injury liability insurance. If the driver who hit you is uninsured—or if the driver’s insurance coverage isn’t enough—a Pasco County car accident attorney at Abrahamson & Uiterwyk may be able to help you file an uninsured/underinsured motorist (UIM) claim.
Uninsured/underinsured motorist coverage is insurance you buy to protect yourself in the event of an accident; and, like bodily injury liability insurance, it is not mandatory in Florida. Even though it is not mandatory, we still strongly recommend that drivers in Pasco County purchase UIM coverage.
Unlike PIP insurance, UIM insurance does not provide “no fault” coverage. So, even though you will be dealing with your own insurance company, you still need to be able to prove that the other driver is responsible for your injuries. You also need to prove how much you are entitled to receive under your UIM policy, and this means that it is extremely important to have an experienced attorney on your side.
Crucially, UIM policies typically cover not only policyholders but also their passengers and even members of their household who are involved in car accidents of their own. So, if you have been injured in a car accident in Pasco County and a loved one has UIM coverage, you may be entitled to file a claim.
Vehicle Defect and Road Hazard Claims
In addition to driver negligence, vehicle defects and road hazards are also common causes of car accidents in Pasco County. Vehicle defects can also lead to serious accident-related injuries (i.e., if an airbag fails to deploy in a collision). We handle cases involving all types of vehicle defects and road hazards; and, if one of these issues played a role in your (or your loved one’s) accident, we may be able to pursue a claim against:
- The vehicle or component manufacturer
- The dealership that sold the defective car
- The government agency that is responsible for the road
- A government contractor hired to construct, repair, or maintain the road
