Auto Accidents

Car Accident and Auto Accident Attorney serving Seminole, Pinellas County, Florida

What to do if you are in an Auto Accident?

Injuries and Compensation – Typically, in Florida, an injured person can bring a claim or lawsuit against the person or company at fault for the accident to gain monetary compensation for damages. Your damages may include but are not limited to: property damage, loss of use of your vehicle, medical expenses, lost wages, pain and suffering, and any permanent disfigurement or impairment.

The injured person’s spouse may also be able to seek compensation for damages to the marital relationship as a result of the injuries sustained by the victim. The element of damage is known as loss of consortium. This type of claim addresses things such as loss of the injured spouse’s love, sexual relations, affection, companionship, ability to have children, and physical assistance among other things.

Choose Lawyers with Compassion – We understand that you are facing many concerns as a result of your accident and resulting injuries. You are probably asking yourself the following questions. 

-Who is going to pay for the damage done to my car? 

-How am I going to get a rental car? 

-Who is responsible for my medical bills? 

-When will I be able to return to work? 

-How am I going to care for my family? 

-What do I need to do to get adequate compensation from the insurance company for my pain and suffering? 

The Tripp Law Firm makes it their goal to help ease some of these burdens for their clients.

As one of our clients, we will communicate with the insurance company and other parties on your behalf and will keep you informed every step of the way. Additionally, we will fight to get you the best possible outcome for your case, whether that means negotiating and settling your claim or proceeding with a trial.

Take It Step by Step – If you haven’t done so already, contact the Tripp Law Firm for a free initial consultation so we may evaluate your potential case and answer your questions. While you may want to put off seeking legal action for your injuries, consider the benefit of taking action sooner—important evidence may disappear or simply not be available with time and you may not have adequate documentation of your injuries without the guidance of a legal professional.

Keep These Points in Mind:

  • Follow all of your doctor’s recommendations for medication and care, and be sure to attend every doctor’s appointment to help ensure that the extent of your injuries is adequately and thoroughly documented.
  • Absolutely DO NOT sign releases or give written, verbal, or recorded statements for insurance adjustors. Doing so can potentially hurt your claim.
