If you or a loved one suffered injuries or even wrongful death in a car accident due to another driver’s mistakes or negligent driving behavior, the state of Florida has laws that may make certain types of damages legally available to you and your family, including compensation for medical expenses, lost wages, mental anguish, pain and suffering, disfigurement and physical impairment. Florida is a purely comparative negligence state, which means that any negligence on the victim’s part can reduce the amount of money awarded on the victim’s behalf. At Whittel & Melton, we can help determine whether and how your case might be affected by comparative negligence. It is extremely important to understand that your settlement in a personal injury claim where comparative negligence law is applied will be determined based on the degree of fault assigned to you. Proving fault is no simple task. You will need an aggressive Florida Auto Accident Attorney to provide well-presented evidence to show that the preponderance of negligence was with the driver who caused the crash.

Insurance companies are for-profit corporations, and because of this known fact insurance representatives are encouraged to keep the amount that an insurance company may pay on any one claim as low as possible. Insurance carrier representatives and claims adjusters have these profit considerations in mind when negotiating auto accident claims with accident victims. For that reason, it is extremely necessary to have an experienced Florida Vehicle Accident Lawyer to negotiate on your behalf and safeguard your best interests.
