Common Misconceptions About Auto Accident Lawsuits

The Umansky Law Firm, Orlando injury attorneys, want to address common misconceptions about auto accident litigation to dispel myths associated with the litigation process, lawsuits and driver liability. Here are some answers to your questions about Orlando auto accident litigation that may surprise you.

Why would I need an attorney for my auto accident injury claims?

Insurance companies are not out to cheat the insured, but the company’s primary responsibility is to its shareholders. No insurer is going to make a generous first offer. If you do not have a good collision lawyer who understands the unique variables of Florida automobile accident law, you may not receive fair and just compensation. Generally, Florida personal injury protection (PIP) and no-fault insurance laws inhibit lawsuits among motorists, but accident litigation is possible and absolutely right in some cases. The Umansky Law Firm will evaluate your case and be sure your rights as a citizen of Florida are respected.

How can I afford an auto accident attorney?

You cannot afford not to hire a lawyer. Insurance companies often offer less compensation to auto accident victims who represent themselves. The Umansky Law Firm’s fees are contingent upon the success of your lawsuit and based on a percentage of your settlement’s value.

Shouldn’t the driver who was at fault compensate me for my losses and expenses?

An important aspect of a Florida auto accident injury lawsuit is the establishment of liability or fault, even though Florida has a combination of no-fault and liability insurance systems. One of the most common misconceptions concerning automobile accidents is that the party who is at fault for the accident must pay for the injured party’s medical bills. In Florida, your insurance will pay at least some of your medical bills, no matter who was at fault. However, in certain circumstances you can and should bring a lawsuit. You cannot rely on another driver to admit fault or on an insurance company to simply give you an appropriate settlement. Let The Umansky Law Firm protect your rights.

Why should I hire a lawyer when all I have to worry about is paying my medical bills and getting the car fixed?

If you are injured and are unable to work you must still pay your bills. How will you afford your bills when faced with the loss of income? An experienced Florida personal injury litigation attorney, like the ones at The Umansky Law Firm, will address all of your damages including loss of income as well as pain and suffering to assure that you receive comprehensive compensation for your personal injury.
