Orlando Car Accident Lawyer

According to the U.S. Department of Transportation and the National Center for Statistics and Analysis, motor vehicle traffic crashes rank as the eighth leading overall cause of death in the United States. In individuals, ages four through 33, motor vehicle accidents are the leading cause of death.

Americans are more likely to die in a motor vehicle accident than from any other cause except heart disease, cancer, and stroke, according to the National Safety Council. In Florida, thousands of people die in motor vehicle accidents every year and thousands more are injured. It is the number one cause of death for teens.

Even though serious auto accidents are very common, few people know what to do after an accident. You have many questions. Who will pay my medical bills? What if the other driver is uninsured? Is the insurance company really offering me a fair settlement? Do I need a lawyer after a car accident?

Stop Insurance Adjusters From Taking Advantage of You

Florida is a no-fault state, which means that every driver with an automobile must have personal injury protection (or PIP) coverage. In most cases, PIP coverage covers 80 percent of the medical bills and 60 percent of lost wages up to $10,000, regardless of who was at fault. In some cases, the owner or driver who caused the crash does not have insurance and you may have to try to recover your damages from your own uninsured or underinsured motorist policy. In these situations, an experienced accident attorney can help you recover damages.

Insurance companies will try to pay you as little as possible for your accident-related losses. They will look for any opportunity to deny coverage completely, even for perfectly valid claims. Injured people often don’t have the strength or ability to fight for their rights. We do.

Don’t talk with an insurance adjuster without first speaking with an experienced accident attorney. Let us help you obtain full and fair compensation for your loss. To learn more about your rights in an automobile accident, see our Motor Vehicle Accident Information Center.

Car Accident Injury Results in $275,000 Settlement

The Umansky Law Firm represented a retired executive that suffered severe injuries as a result of an automobile accident. Before the accident, our client was under the care of a cardiologist for a pre-existing heart condition. Due to the injuries he suffered during the accident, our client had to undergo neck surgery. After the surgery, while in the post-operation area, our client suffered a heart attack. The insurance company argued that our client had pre-existing degenerative changes in his spine and was in his late sixties. After thorough investigation and negotiation, we convinced the insurance company that the stress of the neck surgery caused the heart attack and that the neck surgery was directly related to the accident. Our client was awarded $275,000 in full coverage limits from the at-fault insurance company and from our client’s uninsured motorist insurer.verdicts & settlements page.
