When Picking Up Pieces from Your Accident Adds Insult to Injury
Debris from your car scattered across the roadway is a painful reminder of your automobile accident, but no less agonizing than the pressure in your neck and soreness that stretches down your back.
Like many victims who have been involved in an automobile accident, you have sustained personal injuries that require either hospitalization or, at the very least, extensive medical treatment.
In a perfect world, time and treatment would ease you back to health and normalcy, your financial burdens would be compensated adequately, and the misfortune you did not ask for would be a fading memory.
But, as a victim, your reality is all too imminent. Medical bills are becoming overwhelming and the shock you first felt after your automobile accident has turned to anger and confusion.
After all, you thought the auto insurance you purchased to financially protect yourself and others in the event of an accident like this would help you pick up the pieces to what now seems like the end of the world.
Unfortunately, you – especially if you live in Florida – are likely to be responsible for collecting financial reimbursement from your insurer to cover your medical bills and lost wages related to personal injuries.
In Florida, state law requires you, as a driver, to hold Personal Injury Protection (PIP) insurance. That means your injuries are paid for, no matter which party caused the accident, up to $10,000 minus your deductible.
PIP sounds pretty straightforward, but you would be naïve to think the process to reimburse you for injuries or lost wages is efficient, effective and entirely functional.
When the process becomes too complicated and staggering for you to handle, first take a deep breath, and then call Attorney David Shiner and the personal injury attorneys at Shiner Law Group. The skilled attorneys at Shiner Law Group understand Personal Injury Protection disputes and will work for you to recover the compensation you deserve.
About 31 million people are injured across the country each year and many of those incidents require legal representation.
While automobile accidents are responsible for the brunt of personal injury lawsuits, Shiner Law Group also has a strong history of litigation in all areas where physical or psychological harm has been inflicted due to the negligence of another individual, business, government agency or entity.
Practice areas in personal injury litigation including
- Slip and fall
- Medical malpractice
- Product liability
- Defective medicines
- Libel and slander
- Dog bites
- Assault, battery, and other torts
Injuries due to the negligence of another – a careless driver, a healthcare worker who fails to provide competent and reasonably-skilled care, property owners or employers who fail to keep their premises safe, or manufacturers or companies along the supply chain that put defective products in the lives of unknowing consumers – can turn lives upside down.
In these incidents and others like them – in what is commonly referred to as tort law — you will be responsible for proving whether your injuries and the negligence involved were:
- strict liability.
But, getting to the bottom of your case and presenting the facts in a comprehensible manner seems like a lot to ask of you at this time.
You still feel the lingering physical pain, matched only by your frustration that insurance companies have not only questioned your injuries but have attempted to deny any reimbursement for medical treatment related to your misfortune.
You need not be at wit’s end, engulfed in helplessness and vulnerability. Isn’t it time to really begin to heal and get back on your feet again?
As civil litigation specialists, the attorneys at Shiner Law Group will look long and hard into matters regarding your personal injury claim and present these complexities, if necessary, in a courtroom in ways that you cannot.
For your free consultation, call 561-777-7700, 24/7.
That said, the good news is that most personal injury lawsuits are settled outside a courtroom. Rest assured, the attorneys at Shiner Law Group recognize the uniqueness of your case and will model a strategy that fits your best interests. That means whether negligence, malice or liability were involved in your case, the nature of your injuries and the extent of damages you deserve to be compensated for as a result.
