Do I Need a Treasure Coast Car Crash Law Firm to Represent Me?
Because Florida is a “no-fault” insurance state, in many cases the individuals involved in a car accident will have their own insurance companies pay their own separate claims. When you suffer injuries that are permanently disabling or disfiguring, however, the amount of compensation you are able to recover from your insurance company may not be sufficient to fully compensate you for your losses and expenses. For this reason, Florida law permits individuals who suffer these catastrophic injuries to file a lawsuit and seek monetary damages from the at-fault party or parties that caused the crash and the victim’s resulting injuries.
Recovering compensation through a car crash lawsuit filed in the Treasure Coast region is not as simple as showing that the other driver involved in your crash was texting while driving or speeding down the road. Not only must you prove that the at-fault party did engage in such negligent behavior, but you must establish that such behavior directly led to your injuries and loses. Finally, you must be able to quantify your losses so that a court can award you a monetary damages award that will fully and fairly compensate you. These can be challenging tasks for most individuals without a legal background, but they can be accomplished efficiently with the assistance of an experienced and knowledgeable Treasure Coast car crash law firm.
Should I Accept a Settlement for My Car Crash Injuries?
At some time during the pendency of your claim or lawsuit you may be approached by your insurance company and/or a representative of the at-fault party and offered a settlement: an offer of money in exchange for the cessation of your efforts to recover additional or other compensation. Settlement agreements may appear attractive to injury victims because of the promise of quick cash; however, in settlement agreements, the victim must usually waive important legal rights and accept an amount that is typically not sufficient to fully compensate the victim. Before accepting a settlement agreement, therefore, it is usually advisable to speak with the Shiner Law Group before accepting any settlement offer to ensure that your legal rights and remedies are protected and that the amount offered is sufficient to compensate you for your losses and expenses.
