Experienced Orlando lawyer who gets results
Rear-end crashes are very common in the Orlando area and throughout Central Florida. These car accidents can cause serious injuries for drivers and passengers. When a negligent driver caused a collision that left you injured, you deserve financial compensation. But the legal process can be complicated.
That’s why you need an experienced car accident lawyer on your side. Attorney Michael Cerasa of The Cerasa Law Firm LLC worked for big law firms in the area for years. He learned how to build strong cases that insurance companies had to take seriously. As founder of his own firm, he is now able to work one-on-one with clients.
Holding negligent drivers accountable
Why do rear-end accidents happen? It is most often the fault of the driver in the rear vehicle. The driver may have been texting, talking on the phone, following too closely or simply not paying attention to the road. Or the driver was under the influence of alcohol or drugs. They were unable to stop in time to prevent a crash.
Even at moderate speeds, the impact of a rear-end accident can cause significant injuries. These include whiplash and neck injuries, back injuries, arm and wrist injuries, broken bones, facial lacerations and head injuries.
If you were hurt in a rear-end crash, medical expenses can add up quickly. You may have to miss time from work, resulting in loss wages. All you want to do is recover from your injuries, get your car fixed and move forward. You are just looking for the insurance company to treat you fairly.
But insurance companies are mostly concerned about their bottom line. So to keep their profits as high as possible, they keep payments as low as possible. They may argue your injuries aren’t that bad. They may even try to put some of the blame for the accident on you.
Another tactic they use is to offer you a settlement soon after the accident. They may say it’s the best that they can do but they’ll promise quick payment. The problem is they are trying to may you much less than the amount you should be receiving for what happened. They have lawyers who help them find ways to pay you less.
