Why do I need a lawyer if I was severely injured in an accident?
If you or a loved one is involved in a car crash, it can be a traumatic and life-changing experience. Unfortunately, crashes can result in severe injuries that require immediate medical attention. Some crash victims lose consciousness and wake up in the hospital with no recollection of what happened and they are unable to tell their side of the story.
That is why it is vital to have a highly-skilled attorney representing you. Serious crashes require thorough investigation, including:
- Obtaining a detailed police report
- Tracking down witnesses
- Surveying the crash scene
- Checking for surveillance footage
How can evidence from the crash scene support my car accident claim?
The evidence collected at a crash scene can be very beneficial to reaching an out of court settlement. Our attorneys have expertise in negotiating with the at-fault driver’s insurance company and we can often reach an agreement where they will pay without the necessity of going to trial.
When a case does go to trial, our attorneys have the experience and are prepared to present the evidence to the jury.
The Florida attorneys at Pajcic & Pajcic have represented thousands of clients who sustained severe injuries.
$8 million in compensation for a paralyzed passenger
One of our clients became paralyzed during a collision while a passenger in his boss’s pickup truck. The two were on their way to work one morning when the driver failed to navigate a turn. The pickup truck careened out of control, crossed the centerline on a major roadway, and crashed into the side of a garbage truck.
A faulty roadway design was determined to be the cause of the crash. Our firm was able to help the crash victim obtain $8 million in compensation, despite the engineering firm who designed the roadway having only $1 million in insurance.
$4.3 million verdict for a passenger injured in a distracted driving crash
Another client was severely injured in a distracted driving crash after returning home from a 4th of July celebration. She was riding in the back seat of the car with her seatbelt fastened. The crash occurred when a distracted driver turned left directly in the path of the car she was riding in.
She sustained life-threatening internal injuries and suffered bone fractures to her elbow and eye socket. This case went to trial and a jury reached a $4.3 million verdict.
What if my crash was a hit-and-run or the driver was uninsured?
If you have uninsured and underinsured motorist (UIM) coverage, our attorneys may be able to pursue a claim against your own insurance provider.
UIM covers the cost of your medical care and wage losses, as well as, under some circumstances, pain and suffering. If you don’t already have UIM included in your car insurance policy, we strongly urge you to get it.
