Florida Car Accident Lawyers
Injured in a Crash? We Can Help!
Almost everyone has a scary story about a car accident or a near-miss—including
attorneys! Here’s something that happened to our very own
Carmen Dellutri just recently:
“I was sitting at my desk working when Attorney David Fineman told
me he was taking his car in for service, and he asked me to follow him
and bring him back to the office. ‘Sure, no problem, I’ll
be right behind you.’ At least, that’s what I thought. I was
driving southbound in the left lane of a three-lane road, with no one
in front of me. Then, out of nowhere, a car came from a side road on my
right and tried to cut across three lanes of traffic to make a U-turn.
I drive a big, black pick-up truck—there’s no way she couldn’t
see me. As her car zoomed from out of my blind spot, I slammed on my brakes
as quickly as I could, but it was too late. CRASH! As if this wasn’t
enough, her insurance company tried to blame me for the accident: BAD
We hear stories like this every day. There you were, minding your own business,
safely cruising down U.S. 41, I-75, I-4, or any number of other local
roads, just trying to get from point A to point B. And then, all of a
sudden, BAM! Out of nowhere, your car spins out of control and it feels
like your whole world has been rocked. Or, you were sitting at a red light,
rocking along to Bon Jovi, Jason Aldean, or Talk Radio while you wait
for the green light, and you’re rear-ended by a careless “multitasker”
who’s texting while driving. Even worse, you’re hit by one
of the countless irresponsible drunk drivers who turn their cars into
weapons of mass destruction, with total disregard for their own lives
and the lives of everyone on the road.
We could go on, but we think you get the point. Now, you may see why we
aggressively go after drunk and distracted drivers. You know as well as
we do that Florida highways are dangerous, and they get worse each and
every year. We like to think (and sometimes even joke) that the snowbirds
are the real problem causing all the traffic and accidents. But, let’s
be honest for a minute, even out-of-season, we have a ridiculous number
of distracted drivers on our roads at any given time. We see them driving,
cell phone in hand as if it is glued to their fingers, just waiting for
that all-important text.
Chances are pretty good that, at some point in time in your life, you (or
a loved one) will be involved in an automobile accident with a distracted
driver. If you are here reading these words on this very page, you or
a loved one has already been involved in a vehicle collision. If so, we
are truly sorry that we have to meet like this, and we hope you’re
okay. We know all too well that being involved in a car accident can be
a very traumatic experience that can turn your whole world upside-down.
When Should I Hire an Attorney After a Car Accident?
The insurance company will begin working on your claim immediately after
the accident takes place. When the person they are insuring seems to be
liable, they will undoubtedly try to shift the blame to the other driver
to minimize the payout. It is essential, therefore, that you speak with
an attorney as soon as possible after the accident.
If you are unsure of whether you should hire an attorney to represent you,
here are some scenarios in which you absolutely need to reach out to an
attorney at once:
- You suffered injuries or substantial vehicle damage
- Another party’s actions contributed to your injuries
- You suffered injuries that are severe and permanent
- The accident was fatal
We are here to help. We have been helping people who’ve lost loved
ones to drunk or distracted drivers for over 20 years.
