How Our Personal Injury Attorneys Can Help You

No one ever plans to get into an accident. Yet, every year millions of people suffer injury in a variety of accidents that are not their fault. These accidents cause significant injury and damages that can turn an accident survivors’ life upside down. In a fraction of a second, you may find yourself facing a lifetime of disability, pain, and suffering.

Even worse, you may find that insurance companies are cold and unhelpful during your time of need. Their main goal is to pay you as little as possible and reduce their liabilities. To do this, they may offer you a quick and easy settlement and pressure you into signing. Never sign anything without first speaking to an experienced Port Richey personal injury lawyer at Nicoletti Walker Accident Injury Lawyers.

If you suffered an injury in an accident in Port Richey, we want to help you recover compensation for your medical bills and more. At Nicoletti Walker Accident Injury Lawyers, we offer free initial case evaluations. We want to meet with you to discuss your case and how we can help.

While past results do now guarantee future success, you can rest assured you have chosen a law firm that understands how to win. When you use Nicoletti Walker Accident Injury Lawyers, you send a clear message to the insurance companies that you are not going to settle for less than you deserve.

Types of Injury Accidents

An accident can occur to anyone and at any time – especially in Florida. In fact, Florida is the third most dangerous state in America. These accidents can result in significant losses and damages. We know that no amount of compensation could ever right the wrongs you suffered.

However, we do not believe that you should suffer financially because of another person’s mistakes. We take this seriously because we know that it’s your life—and your future. We don’t back down when insurance companies want you to settle for less because we know that you often deserve more.

At Nicoletti Walker Accident Injury Lawyers, we help individuals who suffered an injury in many different types of accidents including:

  • Automobile accidents. More than 403,000 car accidents take place every year in the state of Florida. These result in more than 250,000 injuries and 3,100 deaths. Of those, hit and run accidents account for 103,000 injuries. Injured automobile accident victims need extensive compensation to help offset the costs of their accident.
  • Bicycle accidents. Florida is the most dangerous state for cyclists according to studies and reports. According to the Florida Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles Department, an estimated 6,500 bicycle accidents occur every year. Distracted drivers, drunk drivers, and fatigued drivers often run into cyclists on the road. These accidents result in horrific injuries and deaths. In recent years, more than 780 cyclists lost their lives in bicycling accidents in Florida.
  • Motorcycle accidents. Data from the NHTSA shows that Florida is one of the most dangerous states to ride a motorcycle. An estimated 600 motorcyclists lost their lives in tragic motorcycle accidents every year in the Sunshine State. Safety experts believe that Florida’s lack of a universal helmet law contributes to a greater fatality rate.
  • Truck accidents. Florida is one of the top ten most deadly states for truck accidents. In recent years, more than 41,000 truck accidents occurred, causing 7300 injuries and more than 275 fatalities. I-75, in particular, is a deadly Florida highway and the site of numerous trucking fatalities and injuries.
  • Boat accidents. Florida leads the nation in the number of registered recreational boats. As a result, more than 600 boat accidents occur in Florida every year according to the Coast Guard. Here, more than 50 people lose their lives and an additional 300 suffer injuries in boating accidents off the coast or in one of the many lakes across the state.
  • Bus accidents. Florida’s buses and commuter rails serve more than 16 million residents across the state. These buses transport people around town and more than 57 percent of Florida’s population lives within one half-mile of an urban route. These buses frequently result in serious injury and death to passengers, as well as cyclists and pedestrians that share the road.
  • Slip and fall accidents. According to the CDC, unintentional falls account for more than 19,000 deaths every year in the United States and thousands of other injuries. Thirty percent of all slip and fall accident survivors suffer moderate to severe injuries, such as brain injuries and fractures.

We also handle insurance bad faith claims and wrongful death claims for grieving family members.

Filing a Personal Injury Lawsuit in Port Richey

Florida is a no-fault state. That means that if you suffer an injury, even if you are not to blame, you must use your personal injury protection policy first. All Florida drivers must carry PIP policies to help them pay their medical expenses and damages. Unfortunately, even collecting from your insurance policy is difficult. We help injured accident survivors file claims with their PIP policies, and explore their legal options for filing lawsuits against the at-fault entities.

After you exhaust your PIP policy, you can file a personal injury lawsuit to help you collect the money you need. To do this, you must prove who is to blame for the accident and your injuries.

Establishing negligence and liability involves proving several elements:

  • The responsible party owed you a duty of care
  • They acted negligently and breached this duty of care
  • The breach led to your accident and injuries
  • You suffered damages as a result

At Nicoletti Walker Accident Injury Lawyers, our personal injury attorneys know that proving negligence often involves extensive investigation. We dig deep into your accident to uncover all liable parties. That’s because we know that in many cases, multiple parties share the blame. For example, the bar or restaurant that served the drunk driver may share the blame for a drunk driving accident. Or a trucking company may share the blame with the truck driver for a serious truck accident.

During our investigation, our attorneys will:

  • Examine police reports
  • Review medical records
  • Interview eyewitnesses
  • Speak with medical experts
  • Employ accident reconstruction teams
  • Examine the crash site and crash damage
  • Review and collect black box data

We use the data collected during our investigation to build a solid case to obtain maximum compensation for your injuries.

Seeking Damages After an Accident in Port Richey

Injury accidents often result in large medical bills. In addition, injured accident survivors are unable to work and provide for their families. These lost wages make it difficult to pay utility bills and rent. As such, injured accident survivors and their families can quickly get into serious financial trouble that quickly exhausts PIP policies. For example, a car accident survivor who suffers a serious brain injury may need $3 million just to pay medical expenses and care. This does not include lost wages or vehicle damages.

In general, injured accident victims can seek both economic and non-economic damages after a car accident. Economic damages are those damages that result in economic losses. They include medical bills, lost wages, loss of future earnings, and rehabilitation expenses. Non-economic damages are more difficult to quantify and include pain and suffering, loss of consortium, and loss of enjoyment in life. In some cases, the courts may award punitive damages to punish the negligent party for their carelessness.

When you meet with our attorneys, we can review the details of your case and help you determine what damages you can seek. Every injury case is unique and we know that each individual needs different types of damages. That is why we work with you and medical experts to make sure you get the money you need both now – and in the future. We want to be sure you have the compensation you need to tackle any injury complications.

How You Can Help Win Your Personal Injury Case

Injured accident survivors always want to know how they can help win their case. You take the first step towards winning your case when you hire our law firm. We will handle your claims and make sure you do not miss any critical deadlines.

However, injured accident survivors can take other steps to help their cases, including:

          • Report your accident. In Florida, drivers must report all accidents to the police. You must stay at the scene of the crash and call 911, as required in section 316.065 of the Florida Statutes if your accident:
            • Resulted in an injury or fatality
            • Involved a hit and run driver
            • Involved a driver under the influence
            • Requires a wrecker to remove vehicles
            • Involved a commercial vehicle
            • Resulted in at least $500 worth of vehicular damage
          • Do not accept a settlement. Even if you believe the insurance company’s offer is fair, you may not realize the true extent of your injuries. In most cases, the insurance company’s first offer is their lowest offer. Do not accept a settlement without first speaking to our law firm.
          • Do not admit fault. If the insurance company requests a recorded statement, you can politely decline. They will use anything to reduce their liabilities. Even a simple, “I’m sorry” is often twisted to show that you admitted fault.
          • Document all medical expenses and keep receipts. Keep all medical bills and receipts – even over-the-counter medications. This will help your attorney determine how much compensation you need.
          • Follow a treatment plan. It is important to follow your doctor’s treatment plan exactly. Be sure to fill all prescription medication and attend all therapy sessions. If you do not follow the treatment plan, the insurance company will use this to show that you did not suffer significant injuries.
          • Do not post on social media. It is important to avoid posting anything on social media before you reach a personal injury case settlement. Avoid specifically posting about the accident, your injuries, or vehicular damage.
