we will be there for you
With far less traffic than most of Central Florida, Geneva isn’t known for car accidents like Orlando and I-4. Yet, that makes it all the more frustrating when it happens to you.
High-speed crashes with multiple cars aren’t the only way to become injured in an accident. Even minor property damage crashes can cause conditions like whiplash, slipped discs, and other injuries that can cause life-long pain and discomfort.
At Beers & Gordon, we have seen the effects that a car accident can have on your body, your finances, and your health. Yet we’ve also seen the ways that insurance companies will undervalue and deny these claims. As your Geneva car accident attorneys, we will work tirelessly to get the compensation you deserve.
Other law firms may boast about the number of attorneys they have or how much money they received for their clients. But at Beers & Gordon, we take pride in putting our clients first.
Our firm has handled thousands of car accidents—from fender benders to massive pile ups—which has allowed us to collect the knowledge and experience needed to analyze and win your car accident case.
In addition to our own expertise, we also partner with experts in accident reconstruction and biomechanics to give us crucial information that can help win your case.
Combined with the experience we gained working for insurance companies, we’re able to paint the clearest picture of your Geneva car accident so that we can help you receive every penny you’re entitled to.
Our consultations are always free.
As your Geneva car accident attorney, we will do whatever we can to give your case the best chance for a favorable outcome. But there are a few steps you can take as well.
After attending to any medical emergencies, report the crash to the police. Under Florida law, the police should file a report for any car accident that causes injury and/or pain.
The police report will also act as a neutral third-party witness in the event your case turns into a “s/he said, s/he said” scenario. It may also be helpful at identifying eyewitnesses.
Once the scene has been released, file an insurance claim. As a “no fault state,” Florida requires that each driver use their own auto insurance policy first to pay medical bills, no matter who was responsible for the crash. This is your Personal Injury Protection (PIP) coverage.
Most importantly, seek medical attention as soon as possible, even if you don’t think you are injured badly.
In order to use your PIP benefits, you must begin treatment within 14 days of your accident. If you wait too long, this gives your insurance company the impression that you are not injured, which could hurt your case later. More importantly, the insurer of the at-fault party gets the benefit of PIP whether you use it or not. So, by not treating timely, you could be costing yourself thousands of dollars.
If you need recommendations for medical treatment, we are happy to connect you with Geneva-area healthcare professionals who can provide you with first-rate care. The importance of proper recovery cannot be overestimated. And treating with doctors whose main goal is to get you better instead of treating you like a number is vital.
Many of our clients have come to us at their wit’s end because they assumed their insurance company would take care of them.
We have experience working on behalf of both insurance companies and injured accident victims and have learned that insurance companies rarely put their policyholders’ interests ahead of their own. Too often, insurance representatives undervalue or even deny claims, taking advantage of the very people they promised to protect.
We can promise that your insurance company has a team of experienced attorneys and other legal professionals working for them. By working with the Geneva car accident attorneys at Beers & Gordon, you can ensure that you are equally represented.
Not all Geneva car accident attorneys are created equal.
Some firms only have experience working on one side of the courtroom. Our attorneys have worked for both the insurance companies and accident victims like you. Not only are we familiar with their tactics, we also know the ways we can fight against them.
Other attorneys may convince you to accept a settlement that is lower than you deserve because they aren’t confident about their skills at trial. At Beers & Gordon, we’re no strangers to the courtroom. David Beers has been a board certified civil trial lawyer for over 35 years.. We will never suggest that you accept any offer that isn’t 100% fair to you.
Attorneys may even push you towards a settlement to satisfy their big firm’s monthly quotas. Beers & Gordon doesn’t have monthly quotas because we believe your compensation should always be about what’s beneficial to you, not your attorney!
