If you have been injured in an auto accident in Daytona Beach, FL a car accident lawyer can protect your rights. Every year there are thousands of auto accidents throughout Central Florida and Volusia County. While the vast majority may be minor fender benders, some crashes have resulted in serious injuries. Unfortunately, many people injured in a car accident do not seek legal counsel and do not receive the required compensation for their injuries.
Under Florida law, the maximum amount of compensation that can be claimed without a lawyer through the personal injury protection (PIP) on an auto policy is $10,000 provided the claimant has received medical attention within 14 calendar days of the accident. This is the statutory legal limit even if medical bills, lost time from work and other accident-related costs exceed that amount.
In the State of Florida, someone who has been injured in an auto accident needs to hire a car accident attorney and file a personal injury lawsuit to receive compensation over the mandated PIP limit. Bonnie Berns is an experienced personal injury lawyer in the Daytona Beach area who has been helping individuals injured in a car accident receive the compensation they deserve for their injuries.
If you have been injured in an auto accident in Daytona Beach, seek immediate medical attention then contact the Law Office of Bonnie Berns. We will review the facts of your case, discuss its merits and provide accurate legal advice for the best resolution of your case. We will even help with filing a claim with your auto insurance carrier. Our office is on call 24-hours per day and we will even arrange to meet with you in hospital or at home.
It is important to keep in mind that it can sometimes take several days for an auto injury to develop. And many individuals do not receive adequate compensation simply because they did not seek medical attention early. We recommend anyone involved in an auto accident to consult with their physician within 14 days of an accident regardless of how minor the accident. This will help protect your rights for adequate compensation in the event something that seems relatively minor develops into a more serious injury later on.
