While accidents happen, car accidents often do not happen without one driver doing something wrong. Some accidents do happen, and the responsible driver (if there was one) cannot be pinpointed. However, when your car accident was someone else’s fault, they can be made to pay for your injuries in full. If they have car insurance (as is the law in Florida), the claim will be handled by the insurance company.
While they are the gatekeeper, and perhaps the only party that you will deal with before settling your claim, they are not the judge and jury. They may try to step on your legal rights, but they may not be able to get away with it when you have a tenacious attorney who is unafraid.
You may be wondering why practically every single attorney with a website tells you that they will fight for you. Everyone seems to describe the claims process as one that requires a tenacious and determined lawyer to take on the big bad insurance company on behalf of the little guy. These are accurate descriptions and not just puffery from lawyers who want to look tough. The insurance company will literally try to make things as tough as possible for car accident victims to get the compensation that they deserve. Here are some of the tricks that they use:
If you do not have a lawyer on your side, the insurance company will take you for an easy mark. They will think that they can get away with practically anything because you do not have the legal firepower to hold their feet to the fire.
Beating the insurance company at their own game starts with knowing exactly how much your claim is worth. Too many people are grateful for the first offer from the insurance company because they think they can get quick money. The truth is that they are being taken for a ride. There may be parts of your damages that you had no idea that you could get before you consulted with a lawyer. Here are some of the things that your settlement check would include:
Your settlement check would pay you for what you have already been through and what you will most likely experience in the future. Remember that you may receive compensation for all of your damages from the accident, and some may not have even happened yet. However, you would not have been experiencing that had it not been for the negligent actions of another driver.
