After you are injured in an accident it is important to contact an experienced personal injury attorney that will give you and your case individual attention. Marielis Rivera Esq. prides herself on being attentive to her clients’ cases and needs. Unfortunately, sometimes personal injury clients feel discarded at large firms, lack personal attention from an attorney, don’t have their phone calls returned, and only talk to paralegals.
Seeking medical treatment for your injuries after an accident is something that the law office of Marielis Law in Tampa can help you with. She works with qualified, knowledgeable doctors and specialists that can help treat and document your injuries.
Next, a claim will be filled on your behalf. A claim is the process used to recover money from the insurance company for damages caused by the person or company responsible for the accident and injuries. When someone makes a claim to an insurance company, the company’s immediate response is to search for information they can use to not pay your claim, or to pay as little as possible. Trying to find old medical records, previous injuries, and scouring social media to document your activities, and in some cases, hiring private investigator to watch you.
Situations often arise where the insurance carrier will pay out only a portion of the unpaid medical bills, or only a portion of the true value of the property damage claim, without compensating the claimant for pain and suffering, lost wages, scarring, disfigurement, loss of capacity for the enjoyment of life, or future medical care. These are a few examples of the types of damages that must be proven by a trained personal injury attorney in order to maximize your recovery under Florida law.
In some instances, particularly in the case of an automobile accident where the claimant has uninsured motorist coverage, the at-fault party’s insurance carrier will work together with your insurance carrier to defeat your claim. If the uninsured motorist case goes to trial, your insurer may even choose to sit with the wrongdoer in the courtroom. They may argue that you caused the accident, that another incident caused your damages, or that you are not injured at all.
