Vehicle Accident Lawyers in Lakeland, Sebring & Sarasota, Florida
The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration reports that nearly three million injuries and 40,000 deaths occur in the approximately six million annual vehicle accidents in the United States. While most accidents across the nation are caused by negligent driving or other unsafe behaviors, Florida has the added risk of millions of tourists who are unfamiliar with their surroundings, and therefore more likely to divert attention from the road in order to consult maps or directions. Of course, Florida’s tourists are not always to blame for motor vehicle accidents, and irresponsible driving in any way is dangerous.
Vehicle accident attorney in Florida
If you were involved in a car accident that was caused by a negligent driver, you may be asking yourself a number of questions: How can I prove that I am not to blame for the accident? Do I need lawyer? How will I pay for the damage to my vehicle? Will my health insurance cover my injury treatment? What if the other driver is from out of state?
While there are no easy answers to most of these questions, the most important thing you can do for yourself—especially if you suffer an injury—is to consult a professional for advice.
At Sessums Law Group, P.A. our knowledgeable and trustworthy lawyers can offer you useful advice on how to deal with the other driver(s) involved, what to say to insurance companies, and most of all, how to make sure that you receive the compensation you deserve. Not only are we skilled with the general practices specific to vehicle accidents, but we can prevent you from making the typical mistakes that someone without an experienced legal representative might make.
For example, did you know that you might be damaging your case by speaking with an insurance adjustor before seeking legal advice? Remember that insurance representatives are in the business of making money first and foremost, and that they care little about your financial, physical, or mental well-being. If an insurance adjustor requests a statement from you or asks you to sign anything, it is possible that they are trying to get you to agree to less than you deserve, or assess your injury/injuries without medical consultation.
