Car Accident Lawyer Working Tirelessly to Help Victims of Negligent Drivers
No two car crashes are exactly the same, and therefore no two car accident cases will be identical either. If you are involved in a car accident, you may suffer a wide range of injuries, from minor scrapes and bruises to traumatic brain injuries and spinal cord damage. Luckily, car accident victims can recover compensation for expenses they have incurred and losses they have suffered after a crash.

Why Do You Need to Hire A Car Accident Attorney?
It’s possible to settle a car accident without a lawyer, but it’s certainly not recommended. A car accident attorney can help you calculate the value of your claim, which can be difficult when you have to factor in future medical expenses and lost wages. Your attorney will also handle the negotiations with the at-fault party’s insurance company. If you choose to negotiate without an attorney, the insurance company may take advantage of your inexperience and convince you to accept a settlement that is far lower than what you deserve. The settlement that you offered may not even be enough to cover the medical expenses you have incurred as a result of your injuries.
Most car accident cases will be settled outside of the courtroom, but if your case does go to trial, an attorney plays an important role in presenting your side of the story to the jury. Your attorney will clearly outline why the defendant is liable for your injuries and how much compensation you deserve.
Can A Lawyer Help You Settle Car Accidents Caused By Drivers With No Insurance?
Drivers in the state of Florida are required to have auto insurance. However, that does not mean that every driver will comply with this law. Car accident victims are typically compensated by the at-fault driver’s insurance company, not the actual driver. Therefore, if you are injured in an accident caused by an uninsured driver, you may wonder how you will be able to recover compensation for your injuries.
If you have chosen to add uninsured motorist coverage to your insurance policy, you can file a claim with your own insurance company after an accident with an uninsured driver. The process for filing this type of claim is similar to filing any other type of car accident claim, so don’t make the mistake of thinking that you don’t need an attorney just because you are working with your own insurance company.
If you do not have uninsured motorist coverage, you may be able to recover compensation by filing a lawsuit against the driver. However, if the driver is not financially stable, it may be very challenging to recover compensation even if it is awarded to you by the court. It’s best to discuss your legal options with an attorney to determine what steps you should take after a car accident involving an uninsured driver.
