Lakeland Car Accident Lawyers
At Moody Law, our attorneys serve people who have been injured in car accidents in Lakeland, Florida. If the accident was not your fault, then you have a legal claim against the owner and driver of the car that ran into your car. There are a number of different sources of insurance coverage that may be available and you may have some questions about which insurance coverage applies to different parts of your legal claim. Assuming that the other person’s insurance company accepts that their insured caused the accident, they should normally pay for your car to be timely repaired or replaced. If you get a rental car, it should be approved and authorized by the other person’s insurance company. Otherwise, you may be responsible to pay for your own rental car. While damage to a car can be repaired, the damage to your body may very well be more severe as you may have a brain injury, serious spinal cord injury, or an orthopedic injury that is permanent. The damages that you can claim from a car accident in Lakeland include bodily injury, pain and suffering, disability, disfigurement, mental anguish, loss of capacity for enjoyment of life, expense of hospitalization, medical treatment and nursing care, past and future wage loss and earning capacity, and aggravation to a pre-existing condition. You may have liens against your recovery from Medicare, Medicaid, or private health insurance that need to be repaid. Our Lakeland car accident lawyers have handled hundreds of cases and have the experience base to answer your questions regarding all of these issues.
