Do I really need a lawyer after my Florida car crash?
A: Although some car crashes seem cut and dry, insurance companies may twist information around—even using your own words against you. This is why it is always best to consult with a Sarasota car crash lawyer after any type of crash.
Most personal injury lawyers will offer a free consultation. You should really take advantage of meeting with an attorney skilled in Florida’s personal injury law to find out if you have a bigger case than you may think you have.
Never accept an insurance settlement offer before consulting with an attorney first. An attorney skilled in car accidents in Sarasota will know how much your case should be worth—especially if you have injuries. Sometimes accidents can cause a victim massive medical bills and lost income due to the inability to work. Insurance companies know this, and may try to settle the case quickly so they can avoid paying for some of those expenses.
Unfortunately, insurance company settlements rarely cover the full damages to the car and your medical expenses. If you try to deal with the insurance company yourself, you may not know what your case could be worth and accept an offer that is too low.
An attorney can help you get compensation to cover damages to repair or replace the car, medical bills, physical therapy or other therapy expenses, rehabilitation, lost wages and instances of pain and suffering. In addition, an attorney will alleviate your stress by dealing with the insurance company on your behalf so that you can focus on your recovery.
