Experienced Car Accident Lawyers Serving Westchase, Florida

“When you have an accident and get injured your first thought should be about your health and not what do you do next. Stacy and her team allowed me to focus on my health as they handled everything for me. They kept me updated throughout the process and made sure I was going to be okay at the end of everything. It is nice to see people who care about the person and not just the verdict. I would recommend them to anyone.”

-John Hess, client review

Why Would I Need a Car Accident Lawyer in Westchase?

While driving may be necessary for those living in Westchase, driving is often dangerous. In fact, car crashes are one of the leading causes of injury and death in our country, causing more harm than most other accident types. While nothing can change the fact that you’ve been in a crash, you do have the right to recover monetary damages for the harm you’ve suffered and we can help. Please call our Westchase car accident lawyers today for a free consultation and an overview of your options.

In the time that it takes you to take your eyes off of the road, a car accident can occur. Car accidents can be incredibly deadly and when they do not result in fatal injuries, they often leave those involved with injuries that change the course of their life forever. Our lawyers are here to provide support and guidance after your crash, and have experience working on a number of different car accident case types.

No-Fault Insurance in Florida

If you’ve been in a crash, it’s important to understand how no-fault insurance works in our state. No-fault insurance allows drivers to recover compensation after a crash regardless of fault; all drivers maintain personal injury protection coverage and bring forth a claim with their own insurance company after a crash.

While the no-fault system allows for recovery after an accident regardless of fault, it does not allow for a driver to file a claim against another’s insurance or file a lawsuit against an at-fault party. However, this rule is lifted for those who have suffered serious injuries, which include injuries that result in permanent and serious loss of a bodily function, permanent injury, scarring and disfigurement, or death. If you step outside of the no-fault system, you can pursue compensation for the full value of your losses, including pain, suffering, and emotional distress.

Why You Need a Car Accident Attorney

While you may want to believe that the car insurance adjuster is on your side, the truth is that car insurance companies want to save money. This means that the insurance adjuster may try to argue that you were at fault for the accident, that your claim isn’t eligible, or that your damages aren’t as severe as you claim. When you work with a car accident attorney, you’ll have an advocate on your side whose primary job is to make sure you get the compensation award you deserve.

How to Improve the Outcome of Your Case

If you have been injured in Westchase, you will likely be able to improve the outcome of your case by reporting the accident immediately, gathering evidence, following your doctor’s orders, knowing what your claim is worth, and working with an attorney.
