She call our Florida Personal Injury law firm to discuss the value of her case.

We were able to obtain compensation for her that she did not expect. She was very grateful for Attorney Louiza Tarassova’s diligent work.

Why You Need to Hire a Car Accident Lawyer

By | Auto Accidents, car accident lawyer, Personal Injury | No Comments

If you were involved in a car accident, you need a qualified personal injury lawyer in order to obtain the fairest compensation for your injuries. Although many insurance adjusters appear to be interested in paying for your medical bills and would like you to believe that they are cooperating with you and care about your car accident injuries, you must remember that they do not want to pay you the highest settlement to which you are legally entitled. In addition to past medical bills, you are entitled to the value of your future medical expenses, pain and suffering, and other economic and non-economic losses. Most times, a car accident attorney can successfully obtain a settlement that is many times higher than the insurance adjuster’s initial offer.

Our car accident attorney represents clients from all over Florida and negotiates car accident claims on a daily basis. She takes car accident cases to court if she does not obtain the best settlement fo her clients. She understand the importance of ensuring that persons who were injured in an auto accident have enough money to pay for future rehabilitation and medical expenses. Additionally, she understands that a permanent accident injury will continue to affect a person’s life long after the accident. Good compensation for pain and suffering is just as important to obtain as payment for medical bills.

You should contact a car accident attorney to discuss your specific case and understand your legal rights.

Should I go to the ER and Who Will Pay?

By | Auto Accidents, Personal Injury | No Comments

In most cases, unless the injury is so sever that an injured person is incapacitated and must be take away by ambulance, people are very reluctant to go to the emergency room. The biggest fear is the medical bills from the ER. I want to clarify this issue for people because I see that it becomes a problem later in my clients’ personal injury cases.

If you have been seriously injured as a result of someone else’s negligence, for example a car accident or a slip and fall at a store, you should not hesitate about going to the ER immediately. Going to the emergency room not only allows a medical professional to assess your condition but it also documents the incident. Documentation is super important in a personal injury case because if a doctor did not document it, it did not happen. Or at least that is how the defense looks at it. Also the defense likes to argue to the jury that the injury must not have been as serious as the plaintiff describe because he or she did not seek medical attention immediately.

Medical bills should not be your primary concern. First, you will not be required to pay the hospital on the day of your treatment. Always request an invoice to come by mail. Second, any medical bill that stems from a personal injury caused by another party (not you) is the responsibility of the at-fault party or their insurance company. Therefore, if you hire a personal injury attorney, your attorney will demand that the at-fault party pay for your medical bills. Finally, most medical bills are grossly inflated and can be negotiated down to a fraction of the original price.

Therefore, if you are seriously injured at a restaurant, hotel, store, or in a car accident you should seek medical attention as soon as possible. Medical bills will be resolved during your personal injury case by your attorney. And remember that not going to see a doctor immediately after the injury occurs may critically impact the worth of your personal injury case.

Why Get Uninsured Motorist Coverage?

By | Auto Accidents, Insurance, Personal Injury | No Comments

I cannot stress enough the importance of adding Uninsured Motorist (UM) coverage to your auto insurance policy. Paying a little extra for your insurance premium is well worth it. A car accident can have a huge impact on a person’s life and their family’s life.

A serious auto accident can cause an injured driver to be financially ruined.

Under Florida “No Fault” law, a person who is injured in an auto accident at another driver’s fault must first exhaust his or her own Personal Injury Protection (PIP) benefits before seeking compensation from the at-fault driver. Once those benefits are fully exhausted, then the victim of the car accident can look to the at-fault driver’s Bodily Injury coverage for monetary recovery.

Whenever a client comes to our office with injuries resulting from a car accident, one of the first things we do is find out how much insurance coverage the at-fault driver has. A person that caused the accident can have no insurance, they can have some insurance (low limits) or they can have adequate insurance (high limits). Each person decides how much Bodily Injury insurance they want to pay for depending on how much of their own assets they want to protect. Uninsured Motorist coverage can protect you from situations where the at-fault driver has little or no insurance coverage.  UM also protects you if the at-fault driver simply runs away from the scene of the accident.

What most people do not realize is that they are sharing the road with careless drivers who are underinsured.   The only way to protect yourself is to add Uninsured Motorist coverage to your auto insurance policy.

If you have been involved in a car accident, you should speak to an attorney immediately. An attorney who handles auto accident cases will deal with the insurance companies while you focus on getting better.
