An auto accident can happen anytime and, in the blink of an eye, lives change. In Orlando and Central Florida, auto accidents are on the rise, due in part to the population and tourism growth of the area. Tractor Trailer drivers, roadway design, and the ongoing construction of the Florida Turnpike, I-4, and other highways also contribute to the increase in auto accidents.
While auto accident cases sometimes seem straightforward, they rarely are. Due to the many potential contributing factors of an accident, Florida’s No-Fault and PIP Insurance policies, the number of uninsured motorists on Florida roads, and the possibility of defective tires and other auto parts, auto accident cases often require in-depth investigation to identify the true cause of the damage. It also takes substantial experience with the insurance providers to maximize the coverage of damages.
Our auto accident lawyers are focused on and highly skilled in car and truck accident investigation. We work with leading experts to reconstruct the accident and find the true causes of both the accident and all the injuries. Often, defects in tires, seatbelts, seatbacks, and airbags cause more damage than the initial collision or accident, however, many attorneys who are less experienced in auto accident investigation miss the telltale clues. Unfortunately, the true cause of an accident is often not known until this thorough investigation takes place.
Once the true causes are found and fault is established, we then work to maximize the insurance claim, be it from your own insurance company or from the insurance companies of the other parties. Insurance claims can be difficult and complex. As trial attorneys with established reputations, we often can maximize the offers from the insurance companies without going to trial; however, we are prepared to go to trial if the insurance company offer is not sufficient to cover all losses, damages, and both current and ongoing medical treatment. We are experienced in insurance litigation, including bad faith claims. (Bad faith exists when insurance companies attempt to underpay or refuse to pay legitimate claims.)
