Tampa Car Accident Lawyer
No one should have to pay out-of-pocket expenses for damages and injuries sustained from Tampa car accidents caused by the negligence of another party. While Florida personal injury protection (PIP) and no-fault insurance requirements help victims avoid the stress of lawsuits by filing claims against their own policies, an insurance settlement may not be enough to compensate for all losses. This is why it is important to schedule an initial consultation with a Tampa car accident lawyer at Westchase Law, P.A. At this important first meeting, we can assess your case to identify all legal options available to you.
How our Tampa car accident lawyers help with your claim
Since Florida is a no-fault insurance state, many people are not aware of the benefits of retaining a lawyer. At Westchase Law, P.A., we provide many services that ensure you pursue the full compensation you deserve:
- Insurance claim support: Even your own insurance company is looking to protect its bottom line. Speak with us before you file your insurance claim. We help you understand the ins and outs of the claims filing process to ensure that you answer questions appropriately and provide the proper evidence needed. And before you sign away future rights by accepting the initial settlement offer, we can review it to ensure it is fair. We have the experience needed to negotiate with insurance company representatives on your behalf if your claim is reduced or denied.
- Examining other options: For severe injuries, your insurance policy may not adequately reimburse you for all losses. Although Florida is a no-fault insurance state, an insured person can sue liable parties if the claim exceeds a verbal threshold—generally a relatively severe injury such as loss of the use of a body part, permanent disability, disfigurement, or even a bone loss. The Tampa car accident lawyers at Westchase Law, P.A. can identify when further legal action is an option under Florida law.
- Pursuing the full range of damages in a lawsuit: The true losses from a serious accidental injury extend well beyond medical bills and therapy. Victims typically lose time from work, and they may need to hire someone to take care of their daily responsibilities during recovery. If injuries result in permanent disability, victims may need a lifetime of medical care and personal assistance—and the emotional strain to both victims and their families can be significant. The car accident attorneys at Westchase Law, P.A. in Tampa can help you seek compensation for these and all related losses.
