It only takes one negligent driver to turn a routine trip into a dangerous accident. Suddenly there is a collision, and you are left in pain with serious injuries. Next, you are facing treatment and overwhelming medical expenses. You want to recover as much as possible from your injuries. You also want to hold the negligent driver accountable.
Why you need a lawyer after a car accident
Insurance companies are supposed to help you after you’ve been hurt in a crash. But the truth is they are not on your side. They try to pay claimants as little as possible to keep their profits as high as possible. You may be filing your first claim for compensation, but insurance companies deal with claims every day and have the advantage. Their adjusters and lawyers have many methods they use to justify lower payments.
What a lawyer can do for you
A lawyer has the resources to investigate your accident to determine how it happened. Their legal team will gather evidence and review all documentation, including a copy of your accident report from the Jacksonville Sheriff’s Office and medical records from Mayo-Clinic-Jacksonville, Baptist Medical Center Jacksonville, or another local hospital that treated you. An experienced attorney can build a strong case and negotiate with the insurance company to reach a settlement that meets your needs – or fight for you in court.
Why choose one of these law firms?
All these attorneys meet certain qualifications. They know the laws in Florida and have recovered financial compensation for clients in Duval County. They know the insurance companies and how they operate. They also understand how victims and their families can be impacted by a car accident. That’s why they are determined to hold negligent parties accountable and fight for the injured.
Can I afford a car accident lawyer?
The answer is yes. The last thing you need is another bill. That’s why these attorneys work on contingency. That means you owe nothing until they recover financial compensation for you. There are no upfront fees or other charges, and law firms pay all the costs of moving your case forward through the justice system. You pay nothing unless they win.
