We handle all types of motor vehicle accidents, auto accidents, trucking accidents, ATV accidents and even forklifts accidents. It does not matter, any type of a wheeled vehicle, even including bicycles. And it can be an accident that happens on public roads, it can happen on private property, it does not make any difference. Under Florida Law, there are three basic claims that you may have when a motor vehicle crash occurs. One is a no-fault claim, because Florida is a no-fault State. The second is the property damage claim that is done to your vehicle or another person’s property. The third is bodily injury claim. In most car vehicle crashes, it is fairly clear one way or the other who is at fault, like a rear-end collision. There are other cases such as an intersection collision where it may not be so clear. Sometime it’s complex who is its fault. To Deal with such situation, Florida applies a concept of comparative which means that even if you are at fault, you are still entitled to compensation to the extend or percentage that the other is involved. So again, you need to bring your facts to your attorney, and once we review the facts, we will be able to tell you what your legal rights are.
