Being Injured In An Accident Caused By A Distracted Driver Can Be Expensive.

If you were severely injured by someone who was distracted while driving, you could face paying tens of thousands or even hundreds of thousands of dollars out of pocket for costs related to:

  • Ambulatory transport
  • Emergency room care/ ICU care
  • Imaging tests like X-rays, MRIs, and CT scans
  • Blood work and transfusions
  • Surgeries 
  • Hospitalization (including overnight stays)
  • Prescription and over-the-counter medications
  • Doctor appointments
  • Physical therapy
  • Chiropractic care
  • Rehabilitation
  • Medical devices (boots, crutches, wheelchair, etc.)
  • Emergency dental work
  • Lost wages (from time spent not being able to work while you recover)
  • Copays
  • Deductibles 
  • Transportation costs
  • And more. 

Sometimes, injuries will tragically never fully heal, and will require lifelong treatment that you will need to pay for continuously.

Why Do You Need To Work With Jacksonville Distracted Driving Accident Injury Lawyers?

When the accident wasn’t your fault, it’s not right that you should shoulder all of those costs. The insurance company of the driver responsible, or your own insurance company depending on the circumstances, should pay you the sum of your accident-related expenses; they are legally liable to do so! Without legal representation on your side, it is likely that the insurance company will do everything in their power to deny or devalue your claim so that they can keep more money in their own pockets. Our attorneys can advocate for your legal rights. We can stand up to them, present evidence, negotiate skillfully, and even take them to court if that’s what it takes to get you what you deserve! Working with an elite law firm will make a difference in the amount you are able to recover.

Type Of Distracted Driving Injury Cases We Handle

Texting and driving is one of the most common forms of distracted driving, but it is not the only form. If you were hit by someone who was eating, applying makeup, changing the radio, checking emails, on the phone, tending to kids in the backseat, arguing with another passenger, or otherwise not focusing on driving, their insurance company is responsible for your damages! Most of the time, people who are injured by distracted drivers don’t automatically realize that they were distracted at the time of the crash; our lawyers can investigate and gather all of the evidence necessary for a strong claim. 

Call Our Expert Legal Team Today!

Florida has a statute of limitations, or a legal time limit, that decreases the amount of time you have to file a claim if you were hit and injured by a distracted driver, so don’t wait to get attorney advice.
