Do I need a car accident attorney?

An attorney can help ensure that you are getting the compensation you deserve under your personal injury protection coverage. In the event that your injuries are serious and life-altering, an experienced car accident attorney can represent you in a lawsuit against the party at fault.

What financial compensation can I receive if I am involved in a car accident?

By law, Florida drivers must carry a minimum amount of personal injury protection (PIP) to cover losses - up to policy limits - resulting from a motor vehicle accident. This protection is intended to compensate the insured for medical expenses, lost wages, and property damage in lieu of a lawsuit. However, if an accident results in permanent injury or wrongful death, victims and their families may be able to seek additional compensation directly from the liable party or parties. Plaintiffs may sue for pain and suffering, mental anguish, funeral expenses, loss of support, and loss of quality of life. You should consult with an experienced attorney after any accident to ensure that your rights are protected and your best interests are served.

What is no-fault insurance protection?

Florida's auto insurance requirements are based on a no-fault system of coverage. This means that drivers must purchase a minimum amount of insurance coverage in order to provide compensation in the event of a car accident, regardless of who was at fault. Drivers make claims for damages against their own policies, which are guaranteed up to certain limits. In exchange for the guaranteed coverage, drivers give up their right to sue for damages for all but the most serious injuries suffered in a car accident.

What if I can't afford an attorney?

At the David Golden, P.A., there is no fee unless you win your case. This means that, in most cases, you pay nothing if your attorney is unable to help you obtain a favorable verdict or settlement. If you win your case, a predetermined percentage of the award you receive will be used to cover the cost of attorney representation.
