Auto Accidents Attorney in Altamonte Springs, Florida

The moment when a car comes out of nowhere, or when stopping at a light is punctuated by another car hitting your bumper, or when you feel the force of impact from another vehicle slamming into yours, you are scared, confused, in shock, angry, and sometimes all of the above. Whether your injury is immediate or discovered after the crash, don't go it alone. Reach out for help.

An auto accident can be a traumatizing and life-changing event. Situations like these can end in reduced earning capacity due to your accident-related injury, decreased financial health due to medical expenses, and can negatively impact your social life.

Automobile accidents often occur as a result of negligence on the part of one or more parties involved. The state of Florida uses a "comparative negligence" system to determine the level of negligence and liability of each party. This means that each party at fault is responsible for the extent of his or her part in the accident. So even if you are partly to blame for your accident, you may still receive compensation for damage done by the other party. However, in March, 2023 the Florida Legislature changed Florida from a pure comparative negligence system to a modified comparative negligence system whereby if the injured party is more than 50% at fault he/she is not entitled to recover for any of his/her damages. (This does not apply to medical malpractice.)

What should I do after the accident?

  • File an accident report with the police - this is required by law;
  • Record the date, time, and location of the accident;
  • Document the event and take pictures before any vehicles are moved;
  • Get the contact, license plate number, and insurance information of the other party involved in the car accident;
  • Seek medical attention for any injuries you sustained and keep a record of any medical documents acquired;
  • Hire an experienced auto accident attorney.
When hiring an attorney, it's important to take into consideration the areas in which an attorney specializes, as well as their experience and success rate. With my extensive experience in winning compensation for clients who were the victims of auto accidents, I am confident in pursuing a fair and just outcome for your case. I have worked on cases where the victim has needed several surgeries due to injuries sustained from their car crash, and many where settlements were reached before going to trial.

How much can I recover?

The State of Florida requires all owners of motor vehicles to carry Personal Injury Protection (PIP) insurance. When you are in a crash your own PIP will pay most of your medical expenses and lost wages regardless of who was at fault for the crash. This is why people sometimes say Florida is a "no fault" insurance State. However, the portion that PIP does not pay will be owed by the person who caused the crash. If you have a permanent injury you will be allowed to recover for non-economic damages typically referred to as "pain and suffering" as well as your lost wages and medical expenses.
