Sarasota Car Accident Attorney

What Should I Do If I Was Injured in a Car Accident?

If you have been injured in an auto accident, you have rights that need to be protected. If the accident was caused by someone else's carelessness, the law allows you to recover compensation for your injuries and other losses. This includes money for medical bills, car repairs, lost wages from missed work, pain and suffering, and many other types of damages.

Michael L. Morgan Law Group handles all types of personal injury cases in Florida, including truck accidents, motorcycle accidents, bicycle and pedestrian accidents, and distracted driving accidents. Our main office is in downtown Sarasota, at 2364 Fruitville Road, between Lime and Shade avenues. We accept car accident cases on a contingency fee basis, which means there is no fee unless we recover money for you.

Take Steps Now to Protect Your Rights

Do not speak to the insurance company adjuster or give any statement before you have spoken with an experienced personal injury attorney. Insurance companies will typically ask you to give them a recorded statement. If you haven't had the chance to fully evaluate your damages, any statements you make can hurt your injury case.

Insurance companies often look to "close the deal" before you get legal advice. If the insurance company can't dispose of your case cheap and fast, it will try to obtain as much information from you as it can before you've had a chance to speak to an accident lawyer. Anything you say can be used by the insurance company to damage your case.

At Michael L. Morgan Law Group, we believe that you deserve to know the tricks insurance adjusters will use to minimize or settle your case for less than what you are entitled to. We offer a free initial consultation to give you the information you need to level the playing field and obtain the compensation you deserve.

What is the Florida Statute of Limitations for Car Accident Lawsuits?

If you have been injured in a car accident and plan to file a lawsuit, it's important to keep in mind the statute of limitations for the state you will be filing your lawsuit in. A statute of limitations is the law that governs how long after your car accident you may file a personal injury lawsuit.

For the state of Florida the statute of limitations for personal injury caused by a car accident is 4 years from the date of your accident. If you attempt to file a lawsuit after those 4 years have expired, your lawsuit will most likely be thrown out. The details for this statute of limitations can be found in Florida Statutes Annotated section 95.11(3).

Waiting too long to file your lawsuit can sometimes cost you your compensation! Don't wait to get your case moving. Contact our firm today to discuss your situation and find out what your next steps should be.
