"Do I Have an Auto Accident Claim?"
Each case is different, but there are a few questions you can ask yourself to determine whether you should explore your legal options. At our firm, we can help you examine these details in you a free consultation with our team.
These considerations include:
- Was it clear that the other driver was at fault?
- Has your health suffered as a result of the accident?
- Are you experiencing lasting, adverse effects from the accident?
- Have your resulting medical bills reached or surpassed $5,000?
- Did your injuries require surgery?
If your answer to most of these questions is "yes," then it is likely you have a viable claim against the other motorist. Contact our firm today to further explore your options.
Taped statements for insurance company
It is strongly recommended that you do not give the insurance company a taped statement without the presence of your attorney. You are more than likely required to give a taped statement to your insurance company, but you have every right to have your attorney present.
You are under no obligation to give the other driver’s insurance company a taped statement. Talking with an attorney in person, and having that attorney present when you give a taped statement is the smartest thing you can do.
Payment for Auto Damage
If the other side was 100% at fault and if they have the right kind of insurance coverage, then they should pay to fix your car. In Florida, if the other driver is driving legally (with even the minimum insurance) then they should have $10,000 in Property Damage Liability Coverage and this will help pay for your car.
If you have difficulty with the other person’s insurance company and you have collision coverage on your vehicle then call your own insurance company and ask them to fix your car. In many cases, your legal counsel can negotiate with these insurance providers and ensure that they know that you what your rights are and are serious about recovering the coverage you deserve.
