Do I Need a Lawyer After My Car Accident?

If you are a car accident victim who has suffered serious injuries due to the negligent actions of another driver in Winter Haven, FL, you have everything to gain by discussing your case with a car accident attorney. Moody Law offers free car accident case reviews, and we only get paid if we collect compensation on your behalf. If you have been injured in a car crash, we can help you:

Take the Right Action after an Auto Accident

Florida is a no-fault state, meaning you must turn to your own insurance company for coverage of car accident injuries requiring up to $10,000 (after paying the deductible), regardless of who is at fault. However, there is no guarantee that your insurance company will fully cover your losses, or that they won't offer you a lowball payout. Meanwhile, your losses may actually exceed the coverage your insurance company provides, giving you the right to file a personal injury suit. An attorney can recommend the right course of action and fight for what you truly deserve.

Prove the True Extent of Your Auto Accident Injuries

The extent of your losses may not be immediately clear after a car accident. Certain injuries may not become apparent until substantial time has passed, and they may eventually compromise your ability to work and maintain your quality of life. The resulting medical bills can also become astronomical. Moody Law can review your medical records and other evidence to determine the amount of restitution you truly need and deserve from your insurance company or that of the other driver.

Focus on Healing

Personal injury law can be incredibly complex, especially when it involves an auto accident. When our firm begins fighting for the justice you deserve, you can concentrate on healing while we make sure all paperwork is completed on time; build a compelling evidence-based case on your behalf; act as a buffer between you and the insurance company or any other entities representing the other party; and pursue maximum compensation, either through negotiations or court hearings.

A Growing Florida Community

Car Accidents Are Happening More Frequently in Polk County

Data from the Florida Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles shows a 17 percent increase in total auto accidents from 2016 to 2018 (the last year reported).

Winter Haven A Small City Affected by a High Volume of Traffic

Winter Haven, FL, is a community that sees a high volume of traffic due to the major roadways that pass through it, including:

state road 540

State Road 540

Running west to east through Polk County, State Road 540 (SR 540) spans about 20 miles from the south end of Lakeland to the east side of Winter Haven, FL, passing through the city's downtown. SR 540 is more commonly known as Cypress Gardens Boulevard. This thoroughfare is the link between US 98 in the west and both US 27 and US 17, and provides access to the entrance of Legoland Florida. 

U.S. Route 27

U.S. Route 27 (US 27) runs 481 miles from the Miami metropolitan area northwest to Greater Tallahassee. US 27 brings Floridians from all over the state to the communities of Polk County. The sheer volume of traffic traveling on US 27 as it passes through Polk County means that serious car accidents resulting in personal injury are a very real risk that both locals and out-of-towners must face.

U.S. Route 27

U.S. Route 17

U.S. Route 17

Beginning in downtown Punta Gorda on the west coast of Florida, U.S. Route 17 (US 17) runs more than 300 miles up to the Greater Jacksonville Metropolitan Area. One of the original routes of the U.S. Highway system, US 17 is a significant thoroughfare similar to US 27 when it comes to bringing visitors from throughout the state to Polk County. With the area's attractions bringing flocks of tourists to Winter Haven, FL, along this highway, US 17 is yet another necessary yet hazardous part of the city's infrastructure.

Common Causes of Car Accidents

Distracted Driving

Take a look around the next time you are stuck in rush hour traffic, and you are likely to witness drivers eating, texting, or talking on the phone. Despite the well-known risks involved with distracted driving, too many drivers are not paying attention behind the wheel. Our car accident attorneys are well aware that it only takes a moment of inattention to cause a serious car accident that can change someone's life forever.


Reckless Driving

Car accidents caused by speeding, running red lights and stop signs, and weaving through traffic are incredibly dangerous. This is especially true due to the risks these actions pose to pedestrians, cyclists, and motorcyclists. Our law firm is prepared to hold negligent drivers responsible for the fallout of reckless actions on the road.

Drinking and Driving

Too many drivers climb behind the wheel after a few drinks, only to cause an auto accident. The dangerous combination of a higher likelihood of reckless driving coupled with compromised reaction times can lead to an arrest in the best case and a wrongful death in the worst. An innocent victim should not have to pay the price for someone else's bad decision.

Asset 624

Equipment Failure

While you may maintain your vehicle at a certain standard, other drivers may not. Even if they do, a part could be defective, causing a failure that leads to a catastrophic car accident. Whether the responsible party is another motorist or the company that created a defective part in another motorist's vehicle, count on Moody Law to pursue the justice you deserve.

Dangerous Road Conditions

Inadequate lighting, missing street signs, potholes, worn dividing paint, and narrow lanes can all contribute to dangerous driving conditions and car accidents. 

Inclement Weather

It is no secret that the weather in Florida can change in an instant. Poor visibility, rain, hail, and wind can all contribute to dangerous road conditions, and it is every driver's responsibility to react accordingly in order to avoid a car accident.

Verdicts & Settlements ​$2,5000,000.00 Motorcycle Accident
