Pursuing Compensation After an Islamorada Accident

If there is evidence that another person’s negligence, recklessness, or intentional misconduct was the cause of the accident and your injuries, then you may have the right to seek compensation for your injuries. In many cases, you have the opportunity to resolve your claim through an insurance settlement. However, this is not as simple as it may sound. Insurers are not in the habit of quickly offering significant sums following accidents their policyholder’s cause. You will benefit from working with an accident lawyer in Islamorada to gather the evidence necessary to prove the other person’s negligence and to establish your injuries.

Once you can establish that the other party is at fault, then you can confidently demand compensation for your:

  • Past, current, and future medical expenses

  • Lost wages
  • Scarring and disfigurement
  • Disability
  • Reduced earning capacity
  • Loss of normal life

The potential maximum value of your claim depends on many factors, including but not limited to the at-fault party’s conduct, the type of your injuries, the pain and suffering you have experienced, the insurance policy limit. By working with an experienced lawyer, you can identify the full value of your claim and the most effective avenue toward obtaining the best possible settlement or jury verdict.
