When extensive injuries, property damage, and even death occur, you and your loved ones deserve to be compensated for your losses. Unfortunately, there are regulations in place in the state of Florida that complicate insurance claims and make it difficult to recover compensation for your injuries, as well as pain and suffering without the help of an experienced lawyer. In these cases, our team of top car and motorcycle accident lawyers will work relentlessly on your behalf – collecting, analyzing, and presenting evidence to ensure you receive the fair and just settlement you deserve.
- Back Pain
- Neck Pain
- Head Injury
- Permanent Scarring
- Broken Bones

If you or your loved one has suffered from any of the above injuries, you may be eligible to take additional legal action to compensate for your losses. In these cases, our team of the best automobile and motorcycle accident lawyers will review your case and help you prepare your claim, ensuring you are successful in obtaining the settlement you deserve.
The vast majority of car and motorcycle accident claims are based on negligence when the responsible party acted in a thoughtless and/or careless manner that caused the injury, death, or harm to another individual. To win a negligence lawsuit, your auto or motorcycle accident attorney must be able to prove that the other party acted with negligence, the negligence caused the accident, and the accident caused your injuries or losses.
Are you eligible for a personal injury lawsuit?
There are special regulations in place in the state of Florida that are intended to reduce the number of crash-related lawsuits. As such, drivers are required to carry at least $10,000 in Personal Injury Protection (PIP) insurance that will cover up to 80% of their medical bills and 60% of their lost wages if an accident occurs. Unfortunately, this coverage is often not enough to pay for the total cost of their medical bills and lost wages, nor does it account for pain and suffering, property damage, and any other losses.
Florida is a “No-Fault” State – what does that mean?
The reason it is difficult to obtain meaningful compensation when involved in a car accident in Florida is that there is a No-Fault law in place regulating insurance claims. This basically means that almost everyone pays for part of their own damages no matter who was at fault. In return, there is a higher injury threshold requirement that must be met before one can recover for pain and suffering. An experienced accident attorney will understand all these detailed laws and be able to properly prepare your case with the correct paperwork and documentation needed for a strong recovery. We have handled thousands of accident claims and thoroughly understand the process.
