Lantana Car Accident Lawyers
Auto accidents are often completely avoidable (and preventable), but as one of the most populous and visited states in the US, Florida consistently ranks among the highest for motor vehicle accidents.
While Lantana is not immune to the significant hazards posed by heavy congestion, negligent drivers, and abstract road layouts, the car accident attorneys at the Shiner Law Group are committed to helping victims recover the compensation they need in the event of an auto accident.
Our experienced, award-winning firm has been serving the Palm Beach community for 15 years in personal injury and wrongful death disputes. And as a part of the community, we treat our clients with the respect, dedication, and compassion they deserve. We believe careless or inattentive drivers who injure others should be held accountable and that victims must be compensated.
Although we provide the type of sophisticated legal services often associated with large firms, we are committed to delivering the personalized attention of a small firm. We understand that our clients are coping with extreme hardships, so we handle insurance company negotiations and legal hurdles in pursuit of the fullest recovery to which our clients are entitled under applicable law.
The Shiner Law Group has represented thousands of victims involved in auto collisions, and each case is unique. Our auto accident lawyers have the legal acumen to represent individuals across the full spectrum of traffic accidents. We work with a network of vehicular accident reconstructionists, engineering experts, and other specialists to build the most compelling legal claim.
Aggressively Pursuing the Fullest Compensation for Serious Auto Collision Injuries
Our experienced lawyers are committed to aggressively pursuing the maximum compensation for your accident claim so that you can focus on healing and recovery. We understand that persons involved in a car accident may suffer permanent injuries resulting in extensive medical treatment and rehabilitation, long periods of disability, or even a permanent inability to engage in gainful employment.
We focus on helping you obtain a broad range of damages so you can focus on getting your life back.
Dealing with Insurance Companies and Coverage Issues
Persons involved in an auto accident in the greater Palm Beach area should be aware that Florida is a no-fault state: you must seek compensation from your automobile insurer regardless of fault. Injury victims can, however, pursue personal injury lawsuits outside of the no-fault system only when accidents have caused significant permanent injury.
Recovering compensation can be a complicated process. Our team can help you navigate insurance coverage issues, including identifying third-party defendants, mitigating efforts to stall financial recovery, avoiding insurance traps and pitfalls, creating and gathering medical records, and protecting victims from insurance representatives.
Non-Driving Related Causes of Crashes Justifying Injury Accident Claims
Despite its large population, Florida has lagged in improving road conditions that may ultimately result in auto accidents; however, dangerous road lawsuits are inherently complex because they raise evidentiary issues that require investigation and analysis:
- Nature of the road defect
- Duration of the defect
- Public notice of the unsafe condition’s existence
- Public entity’s steps taken to mitigate crash risks and improve road safety
Additionally, collisions may result from a defective vehicle or faulty component(s), in which the manufacturer or dealership can be strictly liable. Auto manufacturers have virtually unlimited financial resources, so injury victims significantly benefit from representation by an experienced Lantana car accident attorney.
Dos and Don’ts When Dealing with an At-Fault Driver’s Insurance Company
Don’t Admit Fault: Insurance adjusters will interpret comments to favor the insurer and damage your claim. Let your attorney facilitate communications.
Don’t Sign Anything Without Legal Advice: The insurance company might ask you to sign a general release of liability or request a consent to release information. Let your attorney review any documentation prior to signing.
Do Exercise Caution Using Social Media: Insurance companies search social media to acquire damaging pictures or statements. Victims should discuss their social media activity with an attorney while their legal claim is pending.
Do Refuse to Give a Recorded Statement: The at-fault driver’s insurance adjuster might request a recorded statement with the implication that it will encourage settlement.
Do Assume You Are Being Surveilled: Insurance companies go to great lengths to disprove personal injury claims. Assume you are being surveilled and be aware of your physical activities.
