Do I need a lawyer after being in a car accident?

In most serious cases, yes. If you were injured in an automobile accident and the other driver was at fault, you may need an attorney to obtain compensation.

All Florida drivers are required to carry Personal Injury Protection (PIP) insurance, which provides some coverage regardless of fault. This coverage may be sufficient in very minor accidents. However, in many cases, this “no fault” insurance will not cover all of an injured person’s damages — which may include pain and suffering, medical bills, property damage and lost wages.

In serious injury cases, a personal injury attorney can file a lawsuit against the at-fault driver and his or her insurance company to recover compensation for your injury. Florida personal injury law is complex, and choosing an experienced lawyer can be crucial in getting the compensation you deserve. It is in an insurance company’s interest to pay you the lowest settlement it can, and you will need an attorney to stand up to its legal team. At Joyce & Reyes, we keep our clients informed every step of the way. If a settlement offer is too low, we will advise you not to take it, and we are committed to taking your case to trial if necessary.
