Providing Legal Help Accident Victims Need

If you have been badly injured or a lost a family member in a car accident, you understand how fast life can change. But what you may not know yet is that the safety net we typically look to after a serious accident – insurance – won’t help you if you don’t know how the game is played. If you were injured because of someone else’s negligence, the law says you deserve compensation. But the law says a lot more, and most of it works to make a car accident claim harder for you.

Buckman & Buckman can help you seek the car accident settlement you deserve. The rules may feel like they are stacked against you and in favor of insurers, but we can make a difference. We can investigate your accident, provide a full accounting of your losses and, most important, fight the insurance adjuster whose job it is to block your claim.

Let us review your case for free. If you deserve payment, we’ll fight tooth and nail to get it for you.

Benefit From Our Car Accident Experience

Every day, we deal with what you’re going through now. Let us help.

Just about everything that happens to you after a car accident in Florida is dictated by state law. And if you’ve been badly injured, how and whether you can recover any of your medical costs, lost wages, money for car repairs, etc., is already spelled out.

There is justice available under Florida law. But you have to know where the statutes provide it and be ready to fight for it. Did you know:

  • Insurance policies determine any compensation you’ll receive after a car accident. One of the first things you want to learn after an accident is how much insurance coverage is available to you, but insurers don’t have to say unless you ask. Meanwhile, the insurance adjuster handling your claim is obligated to make sure you get as little as possible.
  • Florida law lists 7 ways you can be compensated for a car accident injury someone else caused. In a personal injury claim, you may seek money for medical bills, lost income, property damage, pain and suffering, mental anguish, loss of enjoyment of life, and loss of familial relationship. But if you don’t know to ask — and what each is worth — no insurance company will help you take more of “their” money.
  • If the other side can show you did anything wrong in a car accident, that’s money you lose. Another facet of Florida law is the “pure comparative negligence” standard. Under it, any amount of blame assigned to you for the accident will cause any compensation you receive to be reduced accordingly. And proving who’s caused the accident is up to you – or the insurer who’s pointing the finger at you.

We know how to make insurance companies do what’s right. Contact us to fight for what’s rightly yours.
