Not quite ready to speak with a Town ‘N’ Country car accident lawyer? Not to worry. Below you will find useful information that will help you understand what steps you ought to take as you navigate the aftermath of your auto accident.

The Types of Town ‘N’ Country Area Car Accident Cases We Most Often Handle

Car accidents (motor vehicle accidents) are approximately 90% of our injury client cases. That statistic alone reveals a lot about the risk which people encounter when getting into their vehicles. Please use caution when driving. Drive defensively. Always wear seatbelts. Take into consideration car safety issues (eg airbags) when purchasing a vehicle. Here are some photographic examples of some of the car accident cases which we have handled.

Rear End Collisions

The most common type of car accident is a rear-end collision. This commonly occurs from drivers not paying attention to the traffic in front of them or not allowing a proper safe distance. This type of accident commonly results in a hyperextension hyperflexion injury but also other injuries can occur including but not limited to dashboard knee, carpal tunnel, head injury, etc.

Lateral Collisions

The second most common type of car accident is a lateral collision. This is commonly also referred to as a T-bone collision. This typically occurs as a result of some driver negligently missing a traffic signal or executing an improper term. These types of collisions can be exceedingly significant since the impact commonly occurs directly on the side of our client’s vehicle directly adjacent to the driver or the passenger. These injuries commonly result in a variety of injuries including significant spine and appendage (shoulder/leg) injuries.

Head On Collisions

The least common but the most significant type of collision involving cars is the head-on collision. These types of accidents are the result of two vehicles striking each other when traveling in opposite directions. Typically the impact is very significant. The occupants of our client’s vehicle come to an immediate stop, which results in an overwhelming and dangerous amount of g-forces inflicted upon our client’s body.

Low Property Damage

There is the mistaken belief that only significant injuries can result from large impact collisions. We handle cases involving large property damage as well as other cases with less obvious damage to the client’s cars. With retractable bumpers and other safety features, it is not uncommon for our car wreck client’s vehicle to have minimal damage despite a significant impact (especially in a rear-end collision). A surprising and dangerous amount of G-forces can be inflicted upon an occupant of a vehicle, even with minimal resulting property damage.

5 Reasons Why You Need a Town ‘N’ Country Car Accident Lawyer

If you’ve been injured in a collision, there are lots of reasons to get help from an experienced attorney. Here are five of the most-important reasons to hire a Town ‘N’ County car accident lawyer: 

1. You Need to Avoid Mistakes with Your Auto Insurance Claim

First, you need to avoid costly mistakes with your auto insurance claim. Many mistakes can leave you without any compensation for your accident-related losses. 

2. You Need to Know What Caused the Accident

Second, while you may be limited to filing a “no fault” personal injury protection (PIP) claim, you could also have a claim outside of PIP. To find out, you will need a lawyer to investigate the cause of your car accident. 

3. You Need to Know How Much You are Entitled to Recover

Third, regardless of what type(s) of claim(s) you can file, you need to know how much you are entitled to recover. If you don’t know how much to seek from the insurance companies, you won’t be able to assert your legal rights effectively. 

4. You Need to Avoid Settling Too Soon

Fourth, you need to avoid settling too soon. This is easily among the most-common mistakes people make when they don’t have a Town ‘N’ Country car accident lawyer on their side. If you settle too soon, you can’t go back and ask for more. 

5. You Need to Be Prepared to Go to Court if Necessary 

Finally, ideally you will be able to secure a settlement that provides just compensation for your accident-related losses. But, if the insurance companies won’t offer a fair settlement, you will need a car wreck lawyer who is familiar with your case and who is prepared to fight for your rights in court.

5 Important Facts about Car Accident Insurance Claims in Florida

In the vast majority of cases, recovering financial compensation for a car accident in Florida involves dealing with the insurance companies. As you begin moving forward, here are five important facts you need to know: 

1. The Insurance Companies Aren’t On Your Side

Despite what they say, the insurance companies aren’t on your side. The insurance companies want to pay as little as possible, and they will use a variety of tactics to avoid paying you if at all possible. 

2. Your Losses Can Add Up Quickly

If you have been seriously injured, your losses will add up quickly. Your medical bills and other expenses could quickly become overwhelming (especially if you are unable to work), and your pain, suffering, and emotional trauma can negatively impact all aspects of your day-to-day life. 

3. You Won’t Automatically Receive Financial Compensation 

Even though Florida is a “no fault” auto insurance state, you won’t automatically receive financial compensation from your insurance company. You still need to prove your right to coverage; and, if you don’t, you won’t receive the financial compensation you deserve. 

4. Many Accident Victims Settle for Far Too Little 

While it is true that most accident claims settle, it is also true that many accident victims settle for far too little. If you don’t hire an experienced auto wreck attorney to calculate your losses and fight for the compensation you deserve, you won’t receive a fair settlement. 

5. You Only Get One Chance

Regardless of the severity of your injuries and the number of months or years they will impact your life, you only get one chance to recover just compensation. Once you accept a settlement, that is the end of your insurance claim.

FAQs: Car Accident Claims in Town ‘N’ Country, Carrollwood, and Citrus Park

Does PIP Insurance Apply to All Car Accidents in Florida? 

PIP insurance applies to all car accidents with only very limited exceptions. If you were injured in a car accident in Town ‘N’ Country, Carrollwood, or Citrus Park and you have PIP, our car wreck lawyers can most likely help you seek payment under your policy. 

Can a Lawyer Help Me Seek Compensation Outside of PIP? 

Florida law allows car accident victims to seek compensation outside of PIP if: (i) someone else (i.e., the other driver) was at fault in the accident; and, (ii) the victim suffered a “significant” or “permanent” injury in the crash. Our lawyers can determine if you have a claim outside of PIP; and, if so, they can fight to recover compensation on your behalf. 

How Does Contingency Fee Representation Work in Car Accident Cases? 

With contingency fee representation, you only pay if you win. Your attorney’s legal fees are calculated as a percentage of your settlement or verdict, and your law firm will recoup the costs of pursuing your claim from your award as well. 

When Should I Contact a Town ‘N’ Country Car Accident Lawyer?

If you’ve been injured in a collision, you should contact a Town ‘N’ Country car accident lawyer right away. We are available seven days a week, and you can contact us 24 hours a day for a free consultation.

Erik Abrahamson

A system of hiring an attorney on an hourly basis rewards inefficiency, creates delays and commonly creates negative issues between the lawyer and the client. Representing clients on a contingency basis in which the law firm earns a percentage of the settlement, however, is much more rewarding for the client and the injury attorneys.
