When you're injured in a serious car accident, your life is going to be turned upside down for a while. While getting the necessary medical care and therapy to heal is going to be at the forefront of your concerns, there are going to be seemingly mountains of paperwork and red tape to ensure that the costs of your health care are covered, or at least recovered or reimbursed later.
At Freidin Brown, P.A., we use our almost century of legal experience to advocate for accident victims and help them deal with multiple insurance companies while they can concentrate on their recovery. We also investigate the circumstances of the accident to help determine whether there are other sources of compensation that can help pay for medical care, vehicle repair or replacement, lost wages and other damages.
Our Miami car accident lawyers know that too often people accept a quick settlement just to get the whole thing over with rather than pursuing compensation that is rightfully theirs. Further, we know that the true extent of a person's accident injuries may not be apparent for months or even longer following a crash.
Medical bills start to pile up quickly after an accident, particularly if you are hospitalized. That's why it's essential to start working with the insurance companies immediately. We deal with the victims' auto insurer, the other drivers' insurer (if they were insured) and health insurers to make sure that our clients' medical bills as well as the expense of fixing or replacing their vehicle are covered.
We also look at your sources of compensation. For example, if the accident occurred while you were working, you may be entitled to workers' compensation. If the other driver involved was working or in a company vehicle, that company may be responsible for some of the expenses. If there was an outside force, such as a road problem or construction hazard, which caused the accident, government or private business entities may have some liability.
Florida has a victims' restitution fund for victims of crime that may be able to provide compensation if the accident involved any type of criminal activity. This includes driving under the influence.
