Car accidents might be common in Altamonte Springs, but they are far from commonplace.
Accidents involving heavy vehicles moving at high speeds cause injuries that can have devastating—and life-long—consequences. But even relatively “minor” accidents can disrupt your finances and your daily activities.
At Beers & Gordon, we have seen the many ways that car accidents take a toll on our clients’ lives and we are dedicated to fighting for the compensation they deserve.
At Beers & Gordon, our attorneys aren’t just experienced at handling complex cases, we are familiar with Altamonte Springs and the surrounding areas. Our team is proud to live, work, and raise our families right here in Central Florida and we understand the challenges unique to this beautiful city.
As “Altamonte Springs insiders,” we’re familiar with the roads, traffic patterns, construction, and any other dangers that may have impacted your accident. We use this knowledge together with our legal expertise to build a strong case for each of our clients.
We also know when to bring in experts in the fields of accident reconstruction and biomechanics to make sure every aspect of your case is examined.
Our consultations are always free.
After you are involved in a car accident in Altamonte Springs, it’s important to follow these steps to ensure the best possible outcome for your case.
First, attend to any medical emergencies, calling an ambulance if necessary. Then, call the police to report the accident.
Many people are hesitant to involve the police, but reporting an accident is not the same as pressing charges. Rather, a police report creates a detailed report of any important information that may be needed later.
We’ve handled many cases where the police report was the most important piece of evidence.
Next, make a claim with your insurance company, even if you don’t believe you were at fault. Under Florida law, drivers involved in an accident must turn to their own insurance policy first. Failure to file a claim in a timely manner could harm your case later.
Even if you don’t feel injured, see a doctor within 14 days of the accident. All Florida drivers are required to carry Personal Injury Protection (PIP) coverage for any injuries they receive in a crash. But in order to use this coverage, you must seek medical attention within 14 days of an accident.
It is very common for shock and adrenaline to suppress pain, discomfort, and other injury symptoms for days or even weeks after the injury has occurred. By the time you begin to feel pain, the opportunity to use your PIP benefits has already passed.
Finally, call an Altamonte Springs car accident attorney as soon as possible to receive expert guidance on your next steps.
Very few car accidents result in a simple, straightforward claims process. Even those that appear relatively easy at first often end up with an offer that does not begin to cover your injuries, lost wages, loss of earning capacity, or pain and suffering.
In our experience, the insurance company tends to put themselves first, not you. We have worked on case after case where insurance representatives undervalued or even denied accident claims, turning their backs on the very people they promised to protect.
You deserve a team of experts willing to put you and your interests first.
Working with the assistance of an Altamonte Springs car accident lawyer is crucial, but even more important is which attorney you choose.
The accident attorneys at Beers & Gordon have not only helped hundreds of other injured victims, they have also worked on behalf of insurance companies. This experience gives us unique insight into what you can expect and how you can get a successful outcome.
We have worked against countless law firms who pushed clients to settle because they had a quota to meet or because they weren’t confident about their skills in a courtroom. But at Beers & Gordon, we are just as comfortable in front of a Judge as we are in front of our clients. And we will never recommend that you accept an offer that isn’t fair.
