Florida: A No-Fault State
Florida is a no-fault state when it comes to car accidents. That means that regardless of the fault, the driver’s insurance provider will pay 80% of the medical cots up to the first $10,000. In Florida, this type of coverage is referred to as Personal Injury Protection. Changes in state law have mandated that individuals must be examined by a doctor within 14 days of the incident or they forfeit their right to these benefits.
Of course, people who’ve had surgeries or suffered serious injuries / disabilities know well that $10,000 does not go very far. Emergency room costs, doctors bills, specialist fees, hospital stays, follow-ups, X-rays and scans, medical equipment, and physical therapy do not come cheap. That $10,000 can be swallowed up by medical costs in the blink of an eye. That’s why you need an experienced attorney to help you receive compensation from the party at fault. Injuries from car accidents can be life-changing. An experienced auto accident attorney can work for you, helping you achieve your legal goals and win the compensation you deserve under the law.
If someone who was driving under the influence or driving distracted caused you to be injured in a car accident, you have a case. Drunk driving and texting while driving cause thousands of accidents each year. Carelessness, recklessness, and misconduct on the road can transform your life by leading to life-long disabilities. They might even take the life of someone you love.
These cases can be messy and complex. But, Attorney John Andreopoulos knows that by unraveling these cases, justice for victims can be achieved. John has years of experience successfully litigating these types of cases. If you’ve been involved in a motor vehicle accident and the fault was someone else’s, you may be entitled to lucrative compensation that includes payment for your medical bills, lost wages, and pain and suffering.
John Andreopoulos is a Skilled Investigator
John is a careful researcher with excellent investigative skills. When examining a case, John will review it from all angles and has the resources to procure additional information as needed. If your case requires an accident reconstructionist, John will get one. Our office will obtain all the necessary information like police reports, insurance coverage information, witness statements, and any other relevant information needed to negotiate or litigate the matter.
Negotiation vs. Litigation
Insurance companies are going to try to pay as little as they possibly can to settle cases. It’s part of their business model. That’s why we encourage anyone involved in an auto collision to talk to their qualified attorney—not an insurer. It is possible to achieve a fair settlement with an insurer or defendant, but it typically requires the services of an experienced auto accident attorney like John Andreopoulos. If you agree to a lucrative settlement, we’ll ensure that all the forms and paperwork are in order. John will carefully review the offer with you to ensure it meets with your satisfaction and approval.
Of course, not all settlement offers are satisfying. If you have a valid claim but the insurer or defendant refuses to pay a fair amount of compensation, Attorney John Andreopoulos has the skills needed to aggressively litigate your case.
Andreopoulos Law Firm won’t charge you legal fees unless John is able to obtain a settlement for you or win your case in court.
What Are Some Common Injuries Associated with Car Accidents?
First of all, no two accidents are alike. When you contract with Andreopoulos Law Firm, we’ll treat you with the respect and compassion you deserve. You aren’t simply a case in our log book. You’re someone who has been hurt and has put your trust in us. We take your trust very seriously, and we’ll strive to aggressively represent your best interests in the court room or at the negotiation table.
Although each case is different and deserving of individualized attention, there are some types of injuries that often occur with collisions. These include but aren’t limited to:
- Injuries to the neck and back (these injuries can cause intense pain and loss of mobility)
- Head injuries
- Internal bleeding
- Cuts and scrapes
- Blood loss
- Wrongful death
These injuries can be severe but temporary or possibly permanent. A disability can completely alter a person’s life—and may even prevent them from earning a living or caring for themselves.
Injuries receive in car, truck, or motorcycle collisions may be entirely accidental in nature—or they may be the fault of someone else. If someone’s negligence or misconduct caused your car accident, you’re entitled to compensation.
