Why 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. 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, Not the Bills

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.

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.

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.

From the initial consultation we felt as if we were part of the family. Every detail was explained up front and throughout the entire process the staff was quick to respond to questions and there were many. Through their effort we received a fair settlement that was much greater than the lowball offer the insurance company initially presented which didnt even cover the associated medical bills. I just cannot speak highly enough of Mr. Moody and his dedicated staff of professionals.

Winter Haven Car Accident FAQ

How long do I have to file a lawsuit after a car accident in Winter Haven?

The statute of limitations for these kinds of cases throughout the state of Florida gives injured parties four years from the date of the accident in which to file a lawsuit. That means that if you are only now becoming aware of the financial consequences of an accident from a few years ago, you may still be able to pursue compensation. Of course, the sooner you act after an accident, the better your chances of a favorable outcome.

Do I need to work with a car accident lawyer?

You are not required to hire a lawyer after a car accident. However, if you try to deal with your insurance company or the other driver's insurance company on your own, you may end up leaving money on the table. Working with the dedicated car accident attorneys at Moody Law can give you confidence that you are maximizing the value of your claim.

How much does it cost to hire Moody Law?

There are no upfront fees when you hire Moody Law for representation after a personal injury. We will only charge a fee if and when we secure compensation on your behalf.
