We Can Protect Your Rights From the Insurance Company and Other Parties Looking to Undercut Your Payout
We will help you prove your damages and file a claim based on your PIP coverage or, if you qualify, file a third-party liability claim against the at-fault driver. It is important to know that insurance company representatives are not on your side. This includes the ones from your carrier. They want to pay out as little as possible to protect their company’s bottom line.
It is especially worth hiring a car accident lawyer when dealing with the insurance company of an at-fault driver. They will try all sorts of tricks and tactics to deny fault and try to blame you for causing or contributing to the accident.
They may claim:
- You caused the accident, not their policyholder
- You acted negligently and contributed to your own injuries
- Your injuries occurred in another way
- You did not follow the doctor’s instructions, and this prevented you from reaching a full recovery
Under the state’s comparative fault law, this reduces the amount you can recover and saves the insurer money.
We can reduce the risk of this by handling all communication with the insurance companies and filing your claim on your behalf. We know how to spot their tactics and how to respond to them without endangering your right to recover compensation for your damages.
We Will Prove Your Damages and Pursue a Payout on Your Behalf
When you trust us with your case, you will get the responsive legal care and support you need. You focus on getting better. We take care of everything else. We will build a case that documents a wide range of accident-related expenses and losses. Because we handle hundreds of cases similar to yours each year, we can identify the most common damages in this type of case and understand how to prove them.
When we go toe-to-toe with the at-fault driver’s insurance company, we present this evidence and demand a fair payout. We use aggressive negotiation techniques to attempt to reach a fair settlement that compensates you adequately for your losses.
We Can File Legal Action in Your Jacksonville Car Accident Case If Necessary
Occasionally, it is impossible to reach an out-of-court agreement that is fair based on the damages you suffered. If we cannot reach an agreement or the insurance company is trying to drag out settlement negotiations, we can take legal action and file a personal injury lawsuit against the at-fault driver. If necessary, we will take your case to trial and present the evidence we gathered to prove fault, liability, and the value of your compensatory damages.
One reason it is important that you reach out to us quickly following your accident is that the state’s statute of limitations sets a time limit for how long we have to litigate your case. Reach out to us today to get started just in case.
