If an accident caused by another person or company left you injured, you have the legal right to fair compensation for all the injuries and losses you have suffered. Many injury victims are burdened by the legal problems that arise after an accident. No injury victim should have to fight an opponent’s insurance company during a time when the victim is recovering from painful injuries.
The Hudson personal injury attorneys at Nicoletti Walker Accident Injury Lawyers are experienced in all types of accident cases. We fight hard for our clients so they can focus on making the best possible recovery from their injuries.
Hudson is a small, quiet beachfront complex in the larger metropolis of Tampa, St. Petersburg, and Clearwater. There are many recreation options in our picturesque city. Hudson Beach is the central location for aquatic recreation, while Veterans Memorial Park and Arthur F. Engle Memorial Park offer recreational facilities for indoor and outdoor sports. We also have golf courses, resorts, campsites and RV parks.
All of these facilities create wonderful opportunities for many different types of fun and exercise in Hudson.
While recreational facilities can create great opportunities for fun, they also create opportunities for injury. Injuries on the golf course or on the baseball field can lead to life-long complications.
Like any city, Hudson has heavy traffic areas that can lead to accidents that injure drivers, passengers, motorcyclists, bicyclists, pedestrians, and others on the road. If you or a loved one were injured in an accident in the Hudson area, it is important to consult with a personal injury attorney about your legal rights.
Many different types of accidents can lead to personal injury. Different accidents cause different types of injuries, and they can also present different legal problems, so it is essential to hire a personal injury attorney who is experienced with the particular type of accident that left you injured.
The following are some of the more common accidents that bring personal injury clients to our office.
Car accidents are a serious problem here in Pasco County. According to the Tampa Bay Times, the risk of an accident is nearly 150 times higher in Pasco County than the state average, which means you are much more likely to be seriously injured in Pasco County than almost anywhere else in Florida. .
Car accidents cover a wide range of different types of motor vehicle collisions, including truck accidents, motorcycle accidents, accidents involving bicyclists and pedestrians, rideshare accidents involving a Lyft or Uber, and electric scooter accidents.
Each type of car accident produces very different injuries and also presents a wide range of legal problems. For example, the liability issue in an accident involving a large commercial truck will be different from liability issues when a driver hits a pedestrian. If you were injured in a car accident, be sure to hire a personal injury attorney who is experienced in handling your specific type of car accident.
Riding a bike along the beach in Florida weather can be enjoyable, whether you’re traveling for exercise, fun, or transportation. However, when a driver hits you, you are likely to be seriously injured.
Florida regularly has the most bicycle accident deaths per year of any state in the US, and all bicyclists are at risk of life-changing injuries due to distracted driving or other driver negligence. Drivers must always share the road safely with cyclists, and they must be fully responsible when they do not.
Boating, sports, and other recreational activities can lead to injuries, and in many cases, it’s clear that someone else caused your injuries. For example, a boat captain was drinking while operating a boat and its deterioration caused it to capsize. Every situation is different, so consult with a personal injury attorney about your particular case to make sure your legal rights are protected.
Slip and fall accidents can happen almost anywhere, often occurring in times of inclement weather or poor lighting. A leaking freezer at a grocery store could present a hidden danger to innocent shoppers. A landlord could endanger tenants by failing to fix an uneven staircase.
Homeowners must maintain their properties in a reasonably safe condition to prevent injury. Business owners are in charge of a higher level of care because they invite strangers onto their property for the specific purpose of making money. It is common for a slip and fall case to give rise to the legal right to compensation for injuries and losses.
Federal and state laws hold consumer goods manufacturers to a strict liability standard. A manufacturer is legally liable (liable) for injuries resulting from its product when a consumer uses the product as intended.
Some common products that can cause harm include:
Product liability cases can be much more expensive than other types of liability. The Insurance Information Institute reports that the jury awards for product liability cases were higher in 2017 than in business negligence cases, medical malpractice cases, premises liability cases, personal negligence cases, and vehicular liability cases. .
In some situations, more than one consumer can be injured by using the same product, which can lead to a complex class action case. Trust a personal injury attorney to fight for your legal rights and demand the compensation you deserve.
The value of a personal injury claim is one of the most important questions for your personal injury attorney to answer. Your compensation will depend on different factors. Insurance companies don’t like this complexity, preferring to do simple calculations based on the total amount of your medical bills. While this is easy for them, it is not fair to you and generally does not take into account the circumstances that may make your personal injury claim more valuable.
The following are some of the factors that can affect the value of your personal injury claim.
The severity of your injuries:
The more serious your injuries, the more compensation you should receive for your pain and suffering. Insurance companies try to explain this by using only the value of your medical bills to calculate your pain and suffering.
However, such calculations do not explain your personal experience with your injuries. What if you had an undiagnosed medical condition that made your recovery more painful? What if you were allergic to a medication that could have shortened your recovery? These factors can increase your pain and suffering and, consequently, the compensation to which you are entitled.
The Lasting Effects of Your Injuries:
Some victims make a full recovery from their injuries if the accident is not that serious. However, in many cases, the victim will suffer long-lasting effects from their injuries, such as mild muscle pain and discomfort. Even if you experience only minor lasting pain, you are still entitled to compensation for this ongoing pain and suffering.
When the injuries are permanent, the victim could suffer constant pain and suffering for the rest of their life. Especially serious permanent injuries, such as amputation and paralysis, often lead to multi-million dollar awards for pain and suffering.
Even if your permanent injuries are not that serious, you are still entitled to compensation for your ongoing pain and suffering. Don’t let an insurance company tell you what your ongoing pain and suffering is worth. They will most likely devalue your pain as it is difficult to prove its value empirically. You should always get advice from your own attorney about what your pain and suffering is worth.
How well does the jury relate to you:
An insurance company is motivated to offer you money to settle your claim to prevent you from filing a lawsuit against your client. An insurance company will not make a settlement offer after the statute of limitations has passed to your claim. At that time, you do not have the option to file a lawsuit.
Because the avoidance of a jury trial is the motivating factor in settlement negotiations, the defense will consider how well the jury might receive your case. Are your claims of pain and suffering credible? Will a jury think you’re exaggerating? Does it seem credible when you are witnessing? It may feel harsh to be tried this way, but the reality is that the jury’s perception of you and your testimony will have a significant effect on the outcome of your case at trial and your settlement negotiations.
How well does the jury relate to the defendant:
The defendant can also testify at trial, and a jury will also decide whether the defendant’s testimony is credible. If the defendant presents himself as lazy, negligent, evasive, or pretending not to remember important details, this will also affect the outcome of a jury trial. Many insurance companies are willing to increase a settlement offer to avoid having to put their client on the stand at trial.
The severity of the defendant’s conduct:
In addition to the impression of the defendant at trial, a jury will also evaluate the defendant’s conduct. If the conduct were especially negligent or careless, the jury would be less inclined to sympathize with the defense. This is a common situation when the defendant is a large corporation charged with wrongful acts, especially if there was an attempted cover-up or the conduct went unnoticed and led to injury to the victim.
However, the defendant does not have to be a large corporation for his behavior to be considered inexcusable by a jury. Imagine a car accident case in which the defendant was speeding. If the defendant had received six speeding tickets in the month before the accident, a jury would be more likely to find that driver negligent. Drunk and impaired drivers also don’t fare well because of the clear decisions they made.
Para hacer una oferta de liquidación rápida en su caso, la compañía de seguros a menudo utilizará una fórmula simple para calcular su dolor y sufrimiento. El ajustador de reclamos tomará el monto total de sus facturas médicas y multiplicará por un pequeño número (generalmente entre uno y tres) para calcular el valor de su dolor y sufrimiento. El ajustador agregará las facturas médicas, el dolor y el sufrimiento, y los salarios perdidos juntos para obtener un total para su oferta de liquidación.
Una fórmula tan simple no tiene en cuenta los diferentes tipos de dolor y sufrimiento de la víctima. Ocasionalmente, el “método multiplicador” puede dar lugar a una oferta de liquidación aceptable. Así que usted puede distinguir entre ofertas adecuadas e inadecuadas, su abogado necesita demostrar que tiene derecho a la mayor cantidad de compensación que se merece.
