Tallahassee & Florida Personal Injury Law
If you have been injured due to the negligence or wrongful conduct of another, the responsible party may be liable to you for your injuries and expenses, including medical expenses and rehabilitation costs, lost wages for time missed from work or if you are disabled from working, and compensation for your pain and suffering and other legal damages. Getting a hold of all the compensation which is due to you, however, is not a simple matter.
The insurance company may offer you a quick cash settlement, but this initial offer is nearly always only a fraction of what your claim is actually worth. It may be necessary to sue the other party and their insurance company to get all you deserve. While most cases do settle without the need for a trial, the insurance carrier may not negotiate seriously unless they realize you are represented by an experienced personal injury attorney who is ready to take the case to trial and who has a record of success. Contact our Tallahassee personal injury attorneys for more information on a specific situation.
If the case does go to trial, the burden is on you as the injured plaintiff to prove every aspect of the case, including all the facts of the accident, the defendant’s liability or fault, and the extent of your injuries and the damages you are seeking. The defendant, meanwhile, has the benefit of being represented by a large insurance company with a team of lawyers who will try to claim that the accident is not their insured’s fault, that you are to blame in causing the accident, or that your injuries are exaggerated or were caused by some other incident. Fighting these charges while proving your case requires the talents of a knowledgeable, skilled and hard-working professional litigator like Joshua Zelman.

Recovering Compensation for Auto Accidents in Tallahassee
Understanding how to recover compensation in a Florida car accident can be confusing due to the state’s complicated scheme of no-fault insurance, personal injury protection, and fault-based liability insurance. While these laws may help you get some compensation more quickly without having to sue the other party, they also attempt to seriously limit the amount you can recover and restrict your ability to sue. See our FAQs page if you have questions about Florida’s no-fault/PIP law and recovery for serious injuries in a car crash.
