Our Team Can Help You Seek the Compensation You Deserve
Florida law makes it challenging to pursue compensation from the liable party in a Clearwater car accident case. Florida Statutes § 627.7407 requires that all drivers carry Personal Injury Protection (PIP) insurance, which covers their own injuries in a car accident regardless of fault.
However, if you have serious injuries, you lost a loved one, or the damages exceed your insurance policy limits, you may have the option to file a claim or lawsuit against the at-fault driver. If so, our lawyers can take the necessary steps to seek financial recovery for you.
Pursuing Financial Recovery on Your Behalf
Our legal team is committed to helping you recover the cost of your accident-related losses. As noted, we could recover compensation for your losses through an insurance claim or a lawsuit. You may be able to recover compensation for the following accident-related losses:
- Medical bills
- Lost wages
- Property damage
- Pain and suffering
- Loss of future earning ability
- Loss of consortium
Examining Evidence to Support Your Case
Insurance companies typically launch investigations immediately following a collision, but looking out for your best interests is not necessarily their goal. As such, we will begin by conducting our own investigation into the case, which includes gathering evidence to support your right to compensation.
Types of information we may request from you and others involved in your case include:
- Statements about the events that occurred before, during, and after the accident
- Police records
- Photos of your injuries
- Videos taken at the scene
- Your medical records and bills
- Proof of your lost wages
- Expert testimony
We may ask you many questions about the collision, and we respect that you may find it difficult to go through the details of such a traumatic event again. Yet, as troubling as recalling the event may be, your testimony could provide important information about your circumstances.
Determining the Cause of the Collision to Prove Negligence
Once we have gathered the appropriate evidence, we can use it to figure out how the collision occurred, including the events that led up to it. Sometimes, we will consult an accident reconstruction specialist for their assistance with this. The results can help us establish fault in your case.
A Clearwater rear end collisions lawyer from our team can use our findings to determine if the driver’s behavior meets the four criteria that constitute negligence:
- Duty of care
- Breach of duty of care
Even if you are partially at fault for the accident, you may still have a case against the other driver. Contact the Law Offices of Anidjar & Levine today at 1-800-747-3733 to speak with our legal team about your options.
Filing Your Lawsuit Before You Run Out of Time
Under Florida Statutes § 95.11, victims and their families have a limited amount of time to file lawsuits against other parties that caused their injuries or losses. Generally, victims can file a personal injury lawsuit within four years of their accident. Family members of deceased victims have up to two years from their passing to file a wrongful death lawsuit.
Our lawyers can calculate how much time you have left to file your lawsuit and help you move forward with it before you miss your opportunity to seek compensation.
We Will Advocate for You and Your Family
Even if you are eligible to seek compensation, the insurance company may try to prevent you from receiving a fair settlement. Adjusters often lowball the victim’s injuries or reject their claim entirely.
Our attorneys know how to deal with adjusters and the legal teams representing negligent drivers. We will handle all communication with adjusters for you, issue a demand letter requesting a fair settlement, and negotiate on your behalf. If we cannot achieve adequate compensation for you during settlement proceedings, we will represent you in court to fight for your case.
