How The Law Offices of Travis R. Walker can help

Florida’s no-fault insurance system means that each driver’s PIP insurance will cover a statutory percentage of lost income and medical expenses after a car accident – regardless of who is at fault. When damages and injuries are severe, victims must pursue additional damages through the courts. Our attorneys can build a strong personal injury claim against negligent parties by:

  • Handling all correspondence with insurance adjustors
  • Conducting detailed investigations of the accident to determine liability
  • Gathering evidence that supports your claim for damages
  • Interviewing and deposing witnesses
  • Hiring accident reconstructionists and medical experts
  • Assessing the full value of your lost income and future earnings
  • Obtaining property damage estimates for your vehicle
  • Proving how the accident resulted in emotional distress, pain and suffering, and lost quality of life

Because Florida is a pure comparative negligence state, drivers can still recover personal injury compensation even if their own actions contributed to the accident. Under these laws, any settlement or jury award will be adjusted according to your percentage of fault. Settlement payouts tend to be higher when claimants have qualified legal counsel who know how to mitigate unfounded allegations and maximize damage awards.
