Common Car Accident Injuries that Deserve Compensation

Neck pain car accidentThe costs of a car accident start accruing at the very moment of impact and
can continue to grow for a long time to come.  Without question, auto accidents are among the most difficult experiences that people must endure.

At Abrahamson & Uiterwyk, we understand just how confusing and distressing the aftermath of an accident can be.  We also know that the out-of-pocket expenses can get out of control before anyone realizes it.

Medical expenses, hospital visits, ambulances, physical therapy, rehabilitation, surgery, or even funeral expenses — these are real bills that have to be paid for, victims shouldn’t be the ones who do the paying.

Of course, not every accident presents a medical emergency.  If you were in an auto accident but never saw the inside of an ambulance or an Emergency Room, that doesn’t mean you aren’t entitled to justice.  You may still have experienced legitimate hardship or injuries, even if your accident didn’t come with the immediate urgency of some others.

Ideally, the victims could count on the irresponsible drivers and their insurance companies for compensation or reimbursement.  After all, that is the negligent driver’s legal duty and the insurance company’s contractual responsibility.  Sadly, though, sometimes this does not happen.

Instead, the at-fault driver turns everything over to his or her insurance company, who sometimes fight with all of its considerable resources to minimize the victim’s payout.

Just like that, innocent drivers who were hurt due to no fault of their own, find themselves in a seemingly impossible war with somebody else’s insurance representatives.

In some cases, the victims don’t even realize they’re in a war.  The insurance companies are very good at making it sound like they are being compassionate and generous.  Remember, these are giant profit oriented corporations with shareholders.

If you’ve been injured in an auto accident in Florida, you may be entitled to much more compensation than the insurance company is offering.

Don’t fall for the insurance companies’ traps. Let us handle them instead.  As Tampa car accident lawyers, we have helped countless victims take a stand against powerful insurance companies and seek the compensation they deserve.  We would like to work for you too.  Give us a call.
