Get personal attention from an experienced Orlando lawyer
Intersections are common sites of car accidents. Many people are hurt in T-bone, or broadside, accidents. When a negligent driver caused the crash that left you hurt, you deserve financial compensation. But the insurance companies are not on your side. That’s why you need an experienced car accident attorney to fight for your rights.
Attorney Michael Cerasa of The Cerasa Law Firm LLC knows how to handle insurance companies. He worked for big law firms in the Orlando area and learned how to build strong cases insurance companies had to take seriously. As founder of his own firm, he is able to personally guide clients through the legal process.
Holding negligent drivers accountable in Central Florida
Why are they called T-bone accidents? These crashes often happen when a car is turning at an intersection and collides with another car that is going straight. The cars together form the shape of the letter “T.”
The impact of the crash can leave drivers and passengers in both vehicles with serious injuries. These include broken bones and injuries to the head, neck or back. Victims may need surgery, hospitalization, prescription medication, physical therapy and multiple follow-up appointments with doctors.
These crashes happen when a driver was negligent. One driver may have been speeding or failed to check for oncoming traffic before making a turn. A driver may have been texting or was talking on the phone. In some cases, a driver was under the include of alcohol or drugs. Or a driver ran a red light.
When a driver was negligent, it seems like it should be easy to recover financial compensation. But negligent drivers often deny doing anything wrong and they refuse to accept responsibility for the crash. They may even blame you for what happened. That leaves you having to prove the other driver was negligent.
Don’t expect much help from insurance companies. They want to keep their profits as high as possible. So they will try to keep payments as low as possible. They may question the seriousness of your injuries or argue that they were pre-existing. They may offer you a settlement that falls far short of covering the damages you suffered.
