Do I need a lawyer for my car accident claim?
You can likely handle a minor accident your own, but serious accidents can be more complicated. You may be in a dispute over who was at fault, you may be badly injured or you may have lost a loved one due to the accident. In these cases, it’s a good idea to hire a car accident lawyer.
Should I talk with the insurance company before contacting a lawyer?
No. Call a car accident lawyer before you speak with the insurance company. This is even more important if you were seriously injured. The only case where you might not need to contact a lawyer would be a minor accident involving no injury and minimal damage to your car.
How much does it cost to hire a lawyer?
Most car accident lawyers work on a contingency fee basis, meaning you don’t pay anything unless they win your case or reach a settlement. The percentage that a personal injury lawyer gets varies, but is typically a third.
How much is my car accident case worth?
The answer to this question varies based on a number of factors, like how badly you may have been hurt, what kind of damage was done to your car and if there was any property damage involved. You may be able to obtain compensation for medical bills, wages from missed time at work, pain and suffering, and more.
How long can I wait before filing a car accident lawsuit?
Each state has a statute of limitations. This is time you have to take legal action. In Florida, car accident victims have up to four years after the date of the accident to file a lawsuit, so, the sooner you call a lawyer, the sooner your lawyer can begin working on your case, while evidence is fresh and witnesses clearly remember what happened.
The Black Box Recorders and Car Accidents
"Investigating accidents can be extremely complicated. It's not just the truck driver who caused the accident that you need to worry about afterwards. It's the company that owns the truck, the trailer and the contents themselves. Was the truck well maintained? Was everything loaded properly? Were any corners cut? Questions often lead to more questions. You need answers. But you might not be sure how to go about finding them. As a Board Certified trial lawyer with more than 30 years of experience, attorney Glatthorn knows how to look for evidence and knows how to use that information to build a rock-solid case."

So many factors can influence a car accident liability claim. These include:
Whether you were in any way culpable for the crash
The other driver's degree of culpability
Whether your car or the other driver's car was in any way defective (e.g. worn-out tires, defective steering column or brakes, etc.)
Whether or not weather contributed to the crash
Whether you or the other driver had been using prescription medications, drugs, or alcohol
Whether you or the other driver has a history of auto accidents, license suspensions, a criminal record, etc.
Whether or not an accident forensic specialist can reconstruct a version of the crash that supports your claim for compensation
Whether or not a pedestrian or another third party was somehow involved
Whether or not a defective highway, broken traffic signal, or misleading signage caused or contributed to the crash
