Hiring a Automobile Accident Lawyer

The choice you make in a law firm can impact the entire process and outcome of your case.

If any of the following statements are true, you should consider contacting an attorney.

  • The accident caused you moderate to severe personal injury.
  • It’s unclear who was liable for the accident.
  • The accident caused a lot of damage to your car.
  • Your claim is more valuable than the costs at face value, but you don’t know how to prove your loss.
  • Your claim takes more than a year to settle.

Research has shown that hiring a car accident attorney can help receive higher settlements than going it alone. In most personal injury lawsuits, attorneys only charge a fee if they win your case. To avoid missing out on the compensation you deserve and to spare you the time and stress of working things out on your own, consider consulting with an attorney.

It is your legal right to demand compensation for your injuries and the hardships you have faced due to someone else’s careless behavior. I know the difficulties that you have probably been facing since you were injured. As a hired lawyer, it is my responsibility to help you through this challenging situation. I will stand firm for you and uphold your rights.

Common Car Accident Injuries

Whiplash  | Neck Injury 

Neck injuries that occur in car accidents can appear in the form of whiplash and minor neck strain OR more serious complications such as an injured disc or cervical radiculopathy.  According to WebMD, whiplash (neck sprain or neck strain) is an injury to the neck where the intervertebral joints, ligaments, discs, cervical muscles, and nerve roots are damaged.   The symptoms of whiplash include neck pain, stiffness, headache, shoulder pain, lower back pain, dizziness, and numbness in the arm or hands. When someone suffers whiplash as a result of an accident, many times, the pain doesn’t occur immediately. Natural pain hormones called endorphins may mask the pain for a while.  Suppose you’ve been in automobile crash and suspect whiplash. In that case, you should seek medical assistance as soon as possible to rule out other more serious injuries.

Head Injury | Traumatic Head Injury / Brain Injury

Head and brain injuries are prevalent injuries that happen as a result of severe car accidents.  Head injury or brain injury can vary in degrees based on the circumstance of the impact.   However, severe brain injury or traumatic brain injury occurs in many cases, leading to permanent impairment in the brain’s function. Typically brain injuries are most common in side-impact car accidents and are due to quick acceleration or deceleration of the brain in the skull.   Brain injury diagnosis can be challenging to diagnose and treat. A physician should evaluate your injuries.

Traumatic brain injury (TBI) is a severe injury that many times occur during car wrecks. A traumatic brain injury occurs when the external force of a car accident traumatizes the brain.  Brain injury may lead to permanent or temporary impairment of the brain’s functions.  Skull fractures, bruises of the brain (hematoma), and nerve damage are often related to such brain injury. Signs of traumatic brain injury can include headaches, seizures, lack of concentration, dizziness, memory loss, anxiety, or depression.  Many of these symptoms are similar to whiplash and less severe injuries, so it’s best to seek medical addition immediately for the proper diagnosis.

Back Injury

In whiplash causes damage to the soft tissue. With back injuries, the back nerves, ligaments, and muscles can be traumatized, leading to pain and inflammation.  Neck, spinal disc, and mid-back, lumbar disks in the lower back can all be injured.  Serious complications can lead to an inability to function normally. A back injury can impact everyday tasks such as walking, running, or daily activities. Typically, prescribed medications, physical therapy, and even surgery are needed to treat back injuries.

Information About Auto Accident Injury Cases

For that reason, you need a personal injury attorney who knows the ins and outs of how to best deal with these situations and who can explain what happens during the process.  Jeremiah Jaspon has worked on hundreds of cases and can advise you on your unique case.

 

Here are some important facts to know about car accident cases.

Legal Representation

Hiring an experienced auto accident attorney is usually advised in auto accident injury cases. Having an experienced legal professional on your side ensures that your rights are protected. Many lawyers in Florida will work with you on fees and many times won’t charge you unless they recover damages for your injuries. Attempting to represent yourself in an auto accident injury case is not advised. You need someone familiar with the laws to protect you.

In Florida, it is law that everyone driving must have auto insurance. It is a state law.

Florida is no longer a no-fault state.

Up until this year, an injured person’s own insurance provided coverage for medical expenses and lost income no matter who was at fault in the accident.  Now under the passage of Bill 54, the state requires bodily injury coverage starting at $25,000 for all Florida drivers.

Insurance and lawsuits

Suppose a person was not purposely behaving recklessly such as driving while drunk in most cases. In that case, an insurance company will be legally required to pay legal expenses only up to the liability limits laid out in that person’s auto insurance policy.

Lawsuits

If someone has been deemed negligent, that person or party is responsible for damages that others may have suffered because of the negligence. Reckless driving, if proven by the legal system, may hold a person legally accountable and that person may be required to pay punitive damages.

Statute of limitations

People have a limited time in which someone can sue for injuries. Under Florida’s statute of limitations for personal injury cases, parties have four(4) years from the date of the accident to file a lawsuit.
