Pursue Car Accident Compensation After an Islamorada Crash

After being injured in a car accident, you may be entitled to compensation. First, you have to prove the other driver was at fault. We will conduct a thorough investigation into the crash and gather evidence. We will seek to prove to the insurance company that the other driver was careless or reckless behind the wheel. Once we establish fault, we will demand full and fair compensation.

You may be entitled to:

  • Past, current, and future medical expenses
  • Past, current, and future lost income
  • Physical pain and suffering
  • Emotional distress
  • Loss of earning capacity
  • Scarring and disfigurement
  • Disability
  • Loss of normal life

The amount of compensation you may receive depends on many factors, including the type and extent of your injuries. You are likely to receive more compensation for a more serious injury, such as a severe TBI, than a moderate injury, like whiplash. Other factors also will influence your compensation if you choose to take your claim to trial. When you go through a jury trial, it is up to the jury to decide if you should receive compensation, and if so, how much. The region where your claim is brought can impact the final amount—some areas tend to allow for greater or smaller recoveries. Also, how sympathetic the jury feels toward you can matter a great deal.
