How Will a Teen Driver Accident Lawyer from Our Firm Help You?
Whether your accident happened on Brandon Boulevard, Hillsborough Avenue, or another street known to be dangerous in Tampa, we want to be of service to you. We will collect and preserve all accident-related evidence and fight on your behalf as we identify the negligent party and hold them responsible for their actions.
We believe that as a victim, you should not have to suffer additional harm after an accident. This is why we are here to defend your rights and pursue monetary compensation you may be entitled to collect after a teen driver accident.
We Do All the Heavy Lifting
We can file your claim and negotiate with the claims adjuster for a substantial settlement if need be. If settlement negotiations are not successful, we have no problem with taking the next step and making your case in court.
If we feel that hiring a medical expert and/or accident reconstructionist could benefit your case, we will not hesitate to do so. We will also calculate your damages and value them so that we know the amount of compensation to pursue.
Pursuing Recoverable Damages
Depending on several factors, such as the cause of the accident and its severity, you may be owed various forms of financial compensation. Some potential forms of compensation that you may collect include coverage of the following:
- Past, current, and future medical bills
- Pain and suffering
- Emotional distress
- Lost income
- Diminished earning capacity
- Property damage
- Temporary/permanent disability
- Loss of limbs
- Physical therapy and rehabilitation programs
- Emergency medical services
- Prescription medications
- Assistive medical devices
Your lawyer will work to determine your eligibility for these forms of recoverable damages and others. We will assess your damages and make sure we are seeking an amount that covers the entirety of your losses. We will not let you get lowballed by an insurance company.
Know the Statutes of Limitations That Apply to Your Case
Some state-specific laws and statutes of limitations may impact your ability to seek legal help after an accident resulting in personal injury. For example, when looking at Florida Statutes § 95.11(3)(a), it is clear that you generally have up to four years to file a lawsuit after a car accident in the state of Florida.
By acting to get in touch with our legal team after an accident, you can avoid the constraints that come into play from these kinds of laws and statutes. It is possible that your case will not settle out of court, and for this reason, it is best to get legal help soon after the accident. If attempts to settle are unsuccessful, your lawyer needs time to build a court case.
If you wait to file your case and the insurer refuses to pay you an adequate settlement, there may not be enough time to construct a robust case. The court can bar you from seeking compensation if enough time passes. In short, the sooner you contact our firm for support, the better.
Investigating a Teen Driver Accident and Identifying a Liable Party
Typically, a case begins with an investigation of the accident. Teen drivers are subject to unique risk factors that experienced drivers often avoid. Many of them contribute to liability. For example, the use of portable electronic devices, such as tablets and cellphones, is much higher among the younger population. This means teen drivers may engage in dangerous acts of distracted driving, such as texting their friends while behind the wheel of a motor vehicle.
According to information the Federal Communication Commission (FCC) highlights, 39 states and the District of Columbia prohibit all cell phone use by novice drivers. Handheld cell phone use continues to be highest amongst those who are 16-24 years old.
As such, this age group is responsible for reducing the risks of distracted driving accidents by engaging in safe driving behaviors that promote a lucid and rational approach to the roads.
We Are Here to Spare You the Task of Communicating with All Involved Parties
Any number of reckless, distracted, or negligent behaviors may place the blame for an accident on a teen driver. When young drivers cause an accident, their insurance companies and parents or guardians will get involved. Victims who try to negotiate with these parties alone are often met with resistance and difficulty along the way.
This is where our lawyer can step in to assist you. We will take care of any essential communications with parents, drivers, insurance agents, law enforcement, and any other parties related to your case on your behalf. Furthermore, your lawyer will work to investigate the situation in a thorough manner, leading to the identification of a liable party.
Your lawyer can collect cellphone records, videos, photos, police reports, and other evidence in their investigation. They will also consider any laws that affect your case at a local, state, or federal level.
