Drunk Driving Accidents
Orlando lawyer who knows how to handle insurance companies
Everybody knows the dangers of drunk driving. But every year, there are car accidents caused by drunk drivers that leave people with serious injuries that are sometimes fatal. While driving under the influence of alcohol is illegal, recovering financial compensation after an accident can be complicated.
Attorney Michael Cerasa of The Cerasa Law Firm LLC understands the impact a drunk driving accident can have on victims and their families. He also knows the challenges and obstacles they face when dealing with insurance companies. That’s why he personally guides clients through the legal process to help them recover the compensation they deserve.
Holding drunk drivers accountable in Central Florida
There’s a reason that drunk driving is against the law. Alcohol slows reflexes, impairs judgment and makes it more difficult to make good decisions. If the other driver was drinking, it seems like that would help your claim for compensation.
But it doesn’t work that way. Drivers can fight their charges in court and may refuse to accept responsibility for causing the accident. They may even argue the accident was partially your fault. The insurance company will try to pay you as little as possible, because their top priority is protecting their profits.
You may be contacted by the insurance company not long after the accident, and they may offer you a settlement. Your medical expenses may be adding up and if you can’t work, there’s less money coming in. You just want all of this to end so you can move on. Their offer might sound pretty good.
The problem is that their offer will fall far short of covering all of the damages you have suffered. They don’t want you to talk to a lawyer. They’re counting on it. You can be sure that they consulted their lawyer, though.
You need a lawyer who will fight for your best interests. Attorney Cerasa is determined to help you recover the compensation you need to pay for all medical treatment of your injuries – both now and in the future. You may also be able to recover damages for lost wages, as well as pain and suffering.
