How Can An Experienced Tarpon Springs Car Accident Lawyer Help You?

One of the worst things you can do after an auto accident is to speak to the insurance companies without the assistance of an experienced Tarpon Springs car accident lawyer. 

You probably feel that if you talk to the insurance companies quickly, you will also get your medical bills and lost wages paid quickly. 

However, this isn’t the case; you may say something the insurance companies will use against you. Read on to learn more.

Who Will Pay For My Damages?

A common question Denmon Pearlman injury lawyers receive is, “who will pay for my damages after a Tarpon Springs auto accident?”

The answer depends on a number of factors — not just who caused the accident. Here are some questions to consider as you seek the compensation you deserve.

Common Tarpon Springs FL Car Accident Injuries

When you are injured in a Tarpon Springs FL car accident, you’ve suffered at least one personal injury. A car wreck can cause one or more of the following:

  • Sprains
  • Severe bruising
  • Cuts
  • “Road rash” from being dragged on pavement or concrete
  • Broken or crushed bones
  • Loss of a limb
  • Internal organ injuries
  • “Whiplash” to the neck from the sudden force of a car accident
  • Facial disfigurement
  • Paralysis
  • Traumatic brain injury (TBI)
  • Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)

Some of these injuries will cause a lifetime of physical and emotional pain, while others may be treatable. Treatments can range from physical therapy and medication to surgery.

The more serious and permanent the injury, the more compensation to which you are entitled. Minor injuries such as cuts and bruises may not qualify for payouts. The best step to take is to request a free case evaluation.

Personal Injury Protection

Florida is one of 10 states that allow personal injury protection (PIP) or “no-fault” insurance. All drivers must purchase this as part of their auto insurance policy.

Basically, PIP means that the policyholder will receive payment for their injuries in a Tarpon Springs auto accident regardless of who is at fault. 

What does this mean for you? Up to $10,000 of your medical bills will be covered right away as long as you followed the law and kept your car insurance policy up to date. 

You don’t have to run to court for immediate relief; however, it’s still important to be careful what you say to the insurance companies after your car accident.

Bodily Injury Coverage

The bodily injury coverage of your car insurance policy covers any harm you cause others through your negligent or reckless driving. However, Florida does not require most drivers to purchase this type of insurance policy “rider.”

Whether the driver who caused your auto accident has bodily injury coverage or not, this is where the insurance companies can start getting ugly. 

The at-fault party’s insurance company will fight as hard as they can to avoid paying your medical expenses, lost wages, and motor vehicle repair or replacement. Not to mention any pain and suffering compensation you deserve.

This is when cases usually require Tarpon Springs car accident, lawyers. Denmon Pearlman offers a free case evaluation. Our auto accident attorneys don’t get paid until you do.

Uninsured/Underinsured Motorist Coverage

What if the person who caused your Tarpon Springs auto accident broke the law? Perhaps they had a smaller insurance policy than required — or none at all?

Hopefully, you purchased uninsured/underinsured motorist coverage as part of your car insurance plan. If you did, then your insurance company will have to pay for your property damage, medical expenses, and lost wages.

However, as always even your own insurance company will fight as hard as they can to avoid giving you compensation. This is where a respected law firm can really do an excellent job on your behalf.

If you did not have uninsured/underinsured motorist coverage, accident lawyers in Tarpon Springs can still help you get the compensation you deserve. One option is to file a lawsuit against the party who caused your car wreck.

How Much Is My Tarpon Springs Auto Accident Case Worth?

While the numbers depend on a variety of factors, you can check out Denmon Pearlman’s personal injury settlement calculator.

It’s important to remember that quick settlements of a personal injury case are not ideal. Yes, you want and need compensation quickly — but you could really hurt yourself by rushing through the process.

First, it takes three to six months (sometimes longer) for the doctors to determine the long-term effects of your injuries. This is called “maximum medical improvement” or MMI.

It would be unethical for any Tampa Bay law firm to even begin negotiating your full claim until the full picture is available. 

Yes, the insurance companies will try to rush the process; however, you sign many rights away by taking a settlement too quickly. Also, remember that an insurance company tends to offer a fraction of the compensation to which you may be entitled.

This past Tuesday, I got into a car accident that was frankly, quite scary. The experience left me disoriented, shaken, and overwhelmed with what "next steps" needed to be taken. Thanks to Nicole Pearlman, and the whole Denmon & Pearlman team, I didn't have to worry about those next steps. They quickly took over and set me up with medical appointments, a rental car, car inspection.... leaving me the ability to focus on spending those initial hours processing the accident and later, days spent on healing physically and emotionally. In a world where billions of people reside and yet we still often feel alone, that was never the case during this chaotic week. Never did I once feel alone in this whole process and I am incredibly thankful for their kindness to my nephew and I and their expertise in these matters. Denmon & Pearlman, especially Nicole Pearlman, WILL be there for you during life's most challenging experiences.

I had to resolve an issue with real estate created by my divorce lawyer’s mistake. We interviewed 4 other attorneys who were non commital about what they could do, a couple said I should pay off my ex to resolve.Paul Knudsen in the New Port Richey office looked at the case and felt we had a valid case and was confident he could help. He did just that ! Resolved the situation AND got half of my legal fees from my ex. He’s very smart and well respected in the courts. Definitely has our highest recommendation!!

Nicole Denmon handled my criminal defense case and her tenacity at getting the desired result exceeded far beyond what I ever thought to hope for. Even after I had given up, Nicole persisted in negotiating my case until she was able to get the ideal outcome for me. I have never had an attorney fight for me the way that Nicole did, and weeks later I am still amazed at the perseverance and level of dedication shown by Nicole and her supporting staff. Thank you Nicole!
