A serious accident can take a toll on your finances. You may be facing significant medical expenses, especially if you have a high-deductible health plan. You may also be missing time at work, resulting in lost wages.
At Dolan Dobrinsky Rosenblum Bluestein, LLP in Miami, we understand the legal and financial issues you are facing. If your injury was caused by someone else’s negligence, our attorneys can help you recover the compensation you need to get your life back on track. We offer a free initial consultation to discuss the financial issues you are facing. We represent clients throughout South and Central Florida.
Who Will Replace My Lost Wages?
If you are injured in a car accident in Florida, your personal injury protection coverage (PIP) will pay for 80 percent of your medical bills and 60 percent of your lost wages, up to a maximum of $10,000. However, if you have suffered a severe injury, $10,000 will not go far in paying your bills.
If the accident was caused by someone else, our attorneys can help you seek full compensation for everything you have lost, including current and future lost wages, and loss of earnings potential.
Unfortunately, insurance companies will not pay expenses as you incur them. If they can avoid paying you anything, they will. In the meantime, you will need to find another way to pay your bills until your case is resolved by negotiation or jury verdict. Our lawyers can help you explore your options, such as short- and long-term disability benefits.
Should I Accept A Settlement?
Insurance companies know that you may be under financial pressure. As a result, they may offer a small amount of money to resolve your case. While any amount of money may seem attractive right now, you should not accept less than you deserve. That check will come with a waiver form that will bar you from seeking any future compensation, no matter how serious your injury turns out to be.
