While these statistics give you an idea of the impact auto accidents have on the residents of Tampa, they don’t emphasize the hardships many car accident victims experience. Car wreck injuries can lead to overwhelming medical bills, lost wages, and emotional anguish, which is why it’s vital you understand how to recover financial compensation after a Florida car accident.

The Aftermath of a Tampa Car Accident

Tampa car crashes contribute to thousands of emergency visits and personal injuries every year. Even a “minor” collision could result in severe injuries that require expensive medical treatment and care. Some of the most frequent car wreck injuries include concussions, traumatic brain injuries, skull fractures, and deep lacerations. Other wounds like whiplash, spinal cord damage, herniated discs, broken bones, and burn are also common.

These and many other accident-related personal injuries could cause patients to miss work and lose income that they could have earned if they weren’t hurt. This lost income combined with stacking medical bills and other financial expenses can quickly leave a car accident victim feeling helpless and overwhelmed.

Fortunately, Florida law has procedures set in place which allows individuals to recover payment for their accident damages after a car crash.

Recovering Financial Compensation For Your Injuries

According to Florida’s No-Fault Insurance Statute, after a car accident, all drivers involved have to file an injury claim with their auto insurance company to get coverage for some of their accident losses, regardless of which driver is liable for the crash. This law requires all motorist to purchase a minimum of $10K in Personal Injury Protection (PIP) Coverage as part of their Florida insurance policy. Your PIP benefits provide you with coverage for your 80% of your medical bills and 60% of lost income.

However, getting the full coverage for your accident damages could be hindered by improper investigations and unfair adjustment tactics. It’s not a secret that profits motivate car insurance companies. They train their employees to lowball clients and reduce the amount of they have to pay out in claim settlements. Some of the many tactics insurance adjusters may employ to save money include disputing the billed amount of medical records, arguing coverage based on liability, and pressuring clients to sign a less than great settlement as soon as possible.

Fortunately, hiring an attorney can help you protect your rights as a consumer and recover the maximum compensation for your injuries. A Tampa car accident lawyer will thoroughly handle the evidence of your case to achieve a settlement that covers all of your injuries. You should hire an attorney that will stand up to your haggling insurance company to obtain the best possible outcome for your case.

I must say that working with 1800-Injured was seamless during a stressful period. Both myself and my wife got into auto accidents within two months of each other and the service received ion both cases from this company is seciond to none. We felt completely at ease from the initial phone call, as they were recommended by someone else who too had a pleasant experience and at every stage in the process we were kept informed, the explanation of the process was thorough and the follow up was an indication that we were in great hands. Thank you for making what could have been a very unpleasant and stressful experience one that was seamless and stress free.

I was recently involved in a automotive accident. A car crashed into my car from behind and I was pushed forward and I hit the car in front of me. At that time I really didn't know what to do or who to call. I remember seeing an Ad for 1 800 Injured on my Instagram page. I called them and they were very informative and handled everything from A to Z. They set me up with a great lawyer and with the right doctors.

Hace unos cuantos meses tuve un accidente con mi novia en el highway, inmediatamente despues del accidente me comunique con 1-800 injured ya que un amigo me lo habia mencionado. Desde que hice la llamada estuvieron a mi disposicion 100%. Me mandaron a la clinica el mismo dia y me ofrecieron un driver de mi casa a la clinica ya que no podia manejar en esas circustancias. No solo eso, tambien me ofrecieron un exelente abogado que llego a mi casa el mismo dia del accidente. No puedo quejarme de su servicio, recibi un excelente tratamiento en la clinica durante 3 meses y en todas mis visitas el driver me llevaba y me traia a mi casa. Definitivamente ofrecen un excelente servicio y se preocupan por sus clientes. Si llegan a tener un accidente automovilistico no duden en contactar a 1-800 Injured!
