One of the scariest things that can happen to a person is being involved in a car accident. Oftentimes, car accidents happen suddenly, causing severe injuries. If you are someone who has been injured in a car accident, you are most likely now seeking financial compensation to help cover the cost of any damages you have incurred. If this has happened to you, please read on and reach out to our experienced firm to learn more about how we can help. Here are some of the questions you may have regarding the claims process:
What can cause a car accident?
There are several different causes of car accidents, however, the most common cause is driver negligence. Unfortunately, despite their frequent nature, these accidents are also among the most preventable. Some examples of driver negligence can include texting while driving, driving while drowsy or fatigued, or driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol.
Will I qualify for financial compensation?
To qualify for financial compensation, you will first have to prove that you were injured due to another party’s negligence. While this may seem straightforward, oftentimes, it is not. Since insurance companies will very often try and deny you the compensation you deserve, it is always best to hire an experienced attorney who knows the ins and outs of the claims process.
To prove your personal injust claim, your attorney may use surveillance or dashcam footage of your accident, police reports of the incident, witness statements, and more. Additionally, one of the most important things you can do is seek medical attention immediately after your accident. A medical professional can treat your injuries and provide you with documentation regarding their extent. You may use this information to further support your personal injury claim.
What is the statute of limitations in Florida?
Every state has a statute of limitations in place for personal injury claims. Essentially, the statute of limitations is the amount of time you have to file a lawsuit against a negligent party. Since the statute of limitations for personal injury claims in Florida is four years, you are granted four years from the date of your accident to take legal action against a negligent motorist. If you wait any longer than four years to file a lawsuit, you will most likely be barred from suing. Our firm is ready to get the claims process started.
