First Steps After a Car Accident in Florida

In most car wrecks, it is presumed that each driver involved is partially at fault. However, even after an officer writes a ticket or provides a summary of the accident, it is still a good idea to review, and perhaps challenge, the information provided. At Goldberg Law Office, we have more than 25 years of experience working with individuals who have been injured in auto accidents.

When individuals contact our firm, we review the officer’s initial investigation. When it is appropriate, we challenge the information provided. Based on the information we find, we help determine who is liable and what benefits are available. We represent individuals involved in any type of road accident, including:

  • Car accidents
  • Motorcycle accidents
  • Bus accidents
  • Truck accidents
  • Van accidents
  • Moped, scooter or Vespa accidents
  • Bicycle accidents
  • Pedestrian accidents

What Type of Compensation Can I Receive?

If you are in a car accident in Florida, experienced Gainesville car accident attorneys can help you receive the compensation you need. In most situations, individuals can file at least two claims — and they may qualify for a third:

  • Property claims provide compensation for any damage done to the vehicle. This is typically filed against the driver who caused the accident.
  • medical benefits and lost wages claim may be paid by your insurance company. In some situations, this may also be paid by the liable party.
  • Intangible damages can also receive compensation. If you have an injury that qualifies under the Florida law, you may be able to receive compensation for emotional damage, including pain and suffering, and loss of consortium (the damages suffered by your spouse due to your injury).
