WHAT IF THE INSURANCE COMPANY CONTACTS YOU?
It is not your obligation to speak to the insurance company of the other side or answer their questions. They won’t work for your best interests and they won’t use your statements against your later. You can ask the insurance company to contact our firm instead of hiring one of our lawyers. An insurance adjuster may offer you a settlement. You should not accept the offer of an insurance adjuster until you have reviewed it with your lawyer.
WHAT IF I GET HIT BY A PERSON WITHOUT INSURANCE
It can be frustrating to be hit by someone who doesn’t have sufficient (or even enough) auto insurance. You might feel panicked. There’s still hope. You might have uninsured/underinsured motorist coverage through your own auto insurance provider without even realizing it. We might be able to seek compensation from your insurer, the at-fault driver, or other responsible third parties. Talk to us first.
WHAT ARE THE BEST WAYS TO GET A ATTORNEY AT AN AFFORDABLE PRICE?
Many of our clients are in difficult economic situations. You’ve been in an accident and that’s not easy on your wallet. Don’t worry. Don’t worry.
Our firm works on a 100% contingency fee basis. This means that we won’t charge you anything unless we win your case. Your financial situation doesn’t have to stop justice from being done.
IS THERE A TIME LIMIT FOR FILING A CAR ACCIDENT INSURANCE CLAIM?
Yes. Yes. Florida has very strict deadlines for car accident claims. You will lose the chance to seek compensation through the state legal system if you miss this deadline.
Important to remember that the time limit does not apply to the actual filing of a lawsuit. It is possible to take a while before this happens. There are many things that need to be done. We will work hard to meet all deadlines but it is not wise to delay filing an accident claim. Our car accident lawyers will be able to begin taking your next steps as soon as you call us. Don’t lose time.
