You shouldn’t have to deal with the aftermath of a devastating auto wreck on your own. Contact a car accident lawyer in Pinellas County to find out more about what legal options are available to you.
People can’t prepare to be involved in a car accident, but they can fight for their rights afterwards. After a crash, you may have steadily increasing medical bills and household expenses you haven’t been able to pay while you are unable to work—not to mention the emotional trauma you might be trying to cope with following the collision.
If this sounds like your situation, you may be able to hold the culpable party accountable for their actions.
If we take on your case, our team of experienced attorneys at Anderson & Anderson is prepared to do whatever it takes to seek full compensation for your losses. Your Pinellas car accident lawyer will work diligently to ensure that the person or persons who are to blame for causing your crash are compelled to compensate you accordingly.
The only way your claim can be successful is if we are able to establish, based on a preponderance of the evidence, that the named party is to blame for causing your car accident. With that being said, it may come as a surprise to learn that there are several parties that could have played a part in your resulting injuries.
It’s easy to assume that the driver of the vehicle that hit you is at fault, as they very well may have been distracted, drowsy, under the influence of drugs or alcohol, or just plain driving aggressively. But this isn’t always the case.
Sometimes, the roads themselves have become dangerous, whether it be due to an unsecured road construction zone, missing street signs, or large potholes, for example. In this case, the Florida Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles (FLHSMV) or the Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) could be to blame.
Let’s not forget about vehicle parts malfunctioning, either. When parts on a vehicle are faulty or become defective, the company that made them and/or the automaker should issue a recall. If people are injured, the auto company, parts manufacturers, and even technicians could be found liable.
In order to obtain full repayment of your losses, your first step will be to file a claim with the car insurance company. From there, your Florida car crash lawyer will negotiate to secure a reasonable settlement.
If the insurance company refuses to settle, or if the amount they offer doesn’t cover your costs, you’ll head to civil court and plead your case before a judge, who has the power to compensate you for the full extent of your suffering in the Pinellas County area.
If you’ve suffered serious injuries in a motor vehicle wreck and aren’t sure where to start when you want to recover compensation for your losses, a regarded Pinellas car accident lawyer at Anderson & Anderson could help you begin to reclaim your life.
