Negligence in Car Accidents
Car accidents can be caused by many different factors, almost all of which are forms of negligence. Negligence is defined as someone's failure to use reasonable care. Some of the most common examples of negligence in car accidents are:
In order to win your car accident case, you must prove that the other driver (or the car's manufacturer) was neglectful in some way that led directly to your injuries. Proving this can be more complicated than it seems, especially when insurance companies go out of their way to downplay or dismiss your injuries.
Insurance Companies Don't Work for You
Many injured car accident victims accept the first settlement that comes their way from an insurance company, not realizing that the insurance agent is probably offering them much less than they deserve. Always consult with an experienced car accident attorney before agreeing to a settlement. It's important to know the true value of your injury claim.
When it comes to car accidents, insurance companies generally want to pay you as little money as possible to make your claim go away with minimal impact to the company's finances. By hiring our experienced Jacksonville car accident attorneys, you can make sure your rights are protected throughout the negotiation process. With an attorney on your side, many car insurance companies will take your claim more seriously from the start. However, even if the insurance company continues to fight you, we will take your case as far as it needs to go to help you win the compensation you deserve.
