What To Do After an Accident

If you have been in an auto, truck or motorcycle accident, you probably have questions about what happens next. You may have already been contacted by either your insurance carrier or the auto insurance company of the other driver(s) involved in the accident. Before you agree to sign anything or speak to anyone, talk to an advocate who has your best interest in mind.

You can speak Mr. Cerasa about your case in a no-cost, no-obligation consultation. Call (407) 315-2932 or click here to contact us via email today.

Why You Can't Trust Insurance Companies

The unfortunate reality that anyone who has been in an auto accident is forced to deal with is the insurance company’s financial interest is to close out your case file as quickly, and for as little cost, as possible. That might mean pressuring you into taking a settlement before the full extent of the injury is known, or not considering all of the factors that should contribute to your settlement. The simple fact is, while the representatives you speak with from the insurance company will all be very friendly, they do NOT have your best interests or long-term healing in mind.

How We Evaluate Your Claim for Maximum Damages

Obviously, auto accidents don’t come with a clear price tag. Calculating the total amount that an injury victim should be paid is a complicated process that requires knowledge and expertise. There are some items that will contribute to the settlement that are very straight-forward, such as:

  • The cost to fix the damage to or replace your car
  • The hospital bills for treatments that have been completed
  • Missed wages from time you were unable to work

However, in more serious accidents, the amounts that need to be calculated are much more complex. It can be very difficult to assign a concrete price to issues like:

  • Pain & Suffering
  • Future hospital and rehabilitation costs
  • Compensation for future lost wages due to decreased ability to earn
  • Compensation for loss of general ability to be independent

Our skilled team at The Cerasa Law Firm can help you put a value to your injury, to ensure all your expenses are covered for life. Learn about our firm!

How Were You Injured?

In the state of Florida, you have four years to file a claim after a car accident. This window can be extended in cases where the injury wasn't "discovered" for a while after the accident.

Taking the First Step After an Auto Accident

We understand that your priority is to get your life back on track and heal from your injuries. However, you only get one shot at a financial recovery, and it’s important to your physical recovery that you receive the compensation that you are entitled to.

Don’t make the mistake of settling too quickly or not taking into account all of the factors that should be figured into a settlement into account. If you employ our services, our auto accident lawyer in Longwood can make sure that you are treated fairly and that you have the financial resources to make yourself whole again.
