Traffic in Pensacola, Escambia County and across northwest Florida is bustling. Growing populations, healthy tourism and increased commerce are all reflected in the high volume of cars and trucks that fill the region's highways and city streets. Heavier traffic flows unfortunately mean higher numbers of accidents.
If you or a loved one is seriously injured in a car accident that is caused by someone else, you should not have to suffer financially as well as physically. At Staples, Ellis + Associates, P.A., in Pensacola, we represent injured parties following car accidents, bicycle accidents, pedestrian accidents, boating accidents and all other injury accidents.
Ready To Take On Insurance Companies For You
Many people who are injured in car accidents are surprised at the pushback they receive from third-party insurance companies or even from their own insurance provider. The truth is insurance companies are intent on protecting their own profits above all else. If they can find a way to minimize the amount they pay out or deny a claim completely, they will do so.
That is why it makes good sense to contact our law firm whenever you or a family member is seriously injured due to someone else's negligence. Do not speak with insurance company representatives until you have spoken with us. We will handle all communication with insurance representatives for you.
When you enlist our representation, the insurance company is aware that you are serious about recovering your full medical costs, lost wages and other compensation you can pursue in a personal injury lawsuit.
Navigating Florida's PIP Law
One important aspect of personal injury cases in Florida is being aware of the state's Personal Injury Protection (PIP) law. It requires all licensed motorists to carry basic PIP coverage with limits of $10,000. It also requires injured accident victims to seek medical treatment within 14 days of the accident and only from specified licensed medical physicians. Treatment that is sought after 14 days will not be reimbursed.
We help injured motorists understand how Florida PIP statutes affect their claim. The important thing to remember is to reach us immediately after your accident so you do not miss any critical deadlines.
