If you have been injured in an auto accident, get immediate medical attention then call the Law Office of Bonnie Berns at 386-672-4040 to speak with a car accident lawyer in Ormond Beach, FL.
Unfortunately, many drivers who are injured in a car or truck accident settle claims with their insurance provider without the assistance of an attorney and do not get fully reimbursed for lost wages, medical bills and other expenses. In addition, in an effort to combat insurance fraud the State of Florida’s recent tort reform substantially reduced the personal injury protection (PIP) benefits provided to drivers injured in an automobile accident.
Under current law, the maximum amount an injured driver can claim under their PIP coverage is $10,000, if medical attention was sought within 14 days of the accident. Otherwise, the maximum benefit is severely reduced and may not cover all of your medical bills, physical therapy and follow-up care. While this legislation helped reduce the insurance company’s liability, it made it more difficult for injured motorists to be adequately compensated for their injuries without the assistance of an auto accident attorney.
However, with the assistance of our car accident attorney in Ormond Beach, FL, a lawsuit can be filed against the negligent driver so you can receive the compensation you need for your pain and suffering, medical bills and other expenses that were incurred and will be incurred as a result of the accident.
But time is of the essence. You must get medical attention and contact a car or truck accident attorney as soon as possible but not later than 14 days from the date of the accident. If necessary, your lawyer can make arrangements to meet with you at the hospital.
