Our streets are filled with drivers who are paying less attention, becoming more distracted, not being especially observant and careful while using cellular telephones, or most seriously, drinking alcohol or taking illicit drugs before getting behind the wheel of their car. Pedestrians and bicyclists are the most susceptible to serious injuries on Florida’s roadways. Automobile drivers continually look for other automobiles, but oftentimes forget to look for pedestrians and bicyclists. Additionally, when pedestrians and bicyclists are struck by automobiles, they are very likely to sustain more serious injuries because they are generally ejected onto the roadway with substantial force and impact. Walking or bicycling public roadways in Florida is a peril each and every day.
While a pedestrian or bicyclist accident involving substantial injuries usually happens in a split second, it will change your life forever. I can say this with certainty, because myself and my family were involved in an automobile accident involving serious injuries many years ago. While many Port Charlotte auto accident attorneys can only experience their clients’ cases from a legal perspective, I actually understand how it feels to be the victim of a terrible accident which can financially and physically destroy a family.
The period immediately following such a serious accident can be overwhelming for the victims of the accident. While coming to grips with your serious injuries, you must also immediately face serious issues such as getting your medical bills paid properly and obtaining immediate payment for lost wages so your family can continue paying its everyday bills. Moreover, skilled insurance adjusters who represent the insurance company and the driver who caused your injuries will be working feverishly to protect their company’s and their driver’s interests, rather than yours. Our formidable team of Port Charlotte auto accident attorneys can and will help you immediately. We will do everything ethical in our power to aggressively pursue your rights against the wrongdoer and applicable insurance companies in order to achieve a fair pre-trial settlement or a favorable verdict after a hard-fought jury trial.
