Meldon Law Attorneys Negotiate With Insurance For You
When you file an insurance claim, you may be shocked to receive a denial or an inadequate settlement offer. The truth is that insurance companies are concerned about their profits like any other business and insurance adjusters are often trained to limit liability whenever possible. For this reason, it is wise to seek assistance from a skilled lawyer when negotiating with insurance companies.
An experienced lawyer can help you compose a persuasive demand letter and compile evidence to submit to support your claim. Our team will also carefully review any settlement offers to ensure they are adequate before you accept them. If you accept an offer, you lose your right to pursue any additional compensation for your injuries, so it is critical to make sure a settlement is enough to cover your losses before accepting.
Your Rights Under Florida Law
If your losses are extensive, it is unlikely that an insurance settlement will be enough. Fortunately, Florida law allows you to seek compensation through the courts if the car accident occurred due to someone else’s negligence. Some examples of negligence that can lead to a car accident include the following:
- Distracted driving
- Drunk driving
- Aggressive driving
- Violating traffic regulations
- Defective car parts
- Dangerous roadways
There are many other negligent acts that can lead to a collision and your car accident lawyer can help you identify whether negligence played a part in your accident. If so, you can seek compensation from the negligent party for your losses, including medical bills, lost income, pain and suffering, emotional suffering, loss of enjoyment of life, and more.
