Brandon Car Accident Attorneys Ready to Help!
When someone is injured as a result of a car accident that is someone else’s fault, life can often become extremely difficult and complicated. There are numerous questions that must be answered regarding medical care, as well as car repairs and lost income. There are also police reports, eyewitness accounts and insurance adjusters to deal with, all while they’re dealing with the adrenaline rush that results from such a traumatic event. The last thing you need on top of all that is an attorney who does not respond to your questions in a timely manner and who doesn’t attend to your needs.
From our Brandon office in Hillsborough County, the Kemp, Ruge & Green Law Group offers anyone who has been the victim of a car accident a highly skilled attorney who cares about you. Our firm operates from one guiding principle; we believe in helping people. Our firm has won a lot of awards over the years, but our clients choose us time and time again because of our approach, which is to provide very personal and results-driven service to every client who asks for our help. Auto accidents are difficult enough for the victim; the attorney who handles the case should be seen as a caring and supportive presence in that person’s life.
That is why our firm operates under a 24 HR Call Back Guarantee. This is a very strict, no-nonsense policy that requires everyone in our office to return every client call within 24 hours, no matter what. We instituted that policy after we discovered that a common frustration many people have with their attorney was their lack of communication. In some cases, a client would call repeatedly to ask a question and the call would go unanswered, and that’s no way to take care of someone who has been injured.
Brandon and the surrounding area is a great place to live in Florida, with its proximity to Tampa and wonderful beaches, outdoor activities and beautiful scenery. However, the population of Brandon, and Hillsborough County in general, has been growing fast over the last few decades. And with rapid growth comes a lot more traffic congestion and a greater frequency of car accidents. In Hillsborough County, there are an average of 18,000 traffic accidents every year and the fatality rate is among the highest in the country. While most of the accidents occur Tampa and St. Petersburg, Brandon and the surrounding area has its share of accidents as well.
The Florida Department of Transportation is trying to improve conditions for drivers and the Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Department patrols Brandon and the surrounding areas constantly, but there are still too many accidents, which means a strong need for experienced Brandon car accident attorneys. If you live, work or drive in Brandon or anywhere else in Hillsborough County and you are in an accident, the possibility of serious injury is significant. Serious injuries have a tendency to take a huge financial and emotional toll on the victim. Of course, if you expect the insurance company to simply cut you a check to pay for everything, that is probably not going to happen.
That’s why all accident victims need assistance from an experienced and highly skilled attorney, such as those at the Kemp, Ruge & Green Law Group. No one should ever have to go it alone in the aftermath of a car accident; everyone needs assistance to get the compensation they are entitled to under the law. Regardless of who the insurance company represents, their claims representative will try to limit their liability and minimize the amount of money they have to pay. They will also hire lawyers to oppose you, which why any car accident victim needs a knowledgeable and experienced attorney on their side. We create a more level playing field for the accident victim.
Florida car accident cases can be very difficult for anyone to deal with, especially when there are serious injuries. You may be looking at getting compensation for huge medical bills, loss of income, possible disability and the potential cost of long-term care, rehabilitation and physical therapy, as well as pain and suffering and the impact on your loved ones and many drivers don’t carry enough insurance to cover all of that. Even if they do, to get the compensation you are entitled to requires intense negotiation with insurance carriers, responsible parties and their attorneys, which means a complete investigation and the use of numerous experts to make a case. There is a lot to know, which makes it almost impossible for any injured party to handle their own case.
There are also many legal details that must be considered, such as statute of limitations, which is a deadline that must be met, or you will lose your ability to file a lawsuit forever. If your claim is against state, federal or any other governmental entity, there are special processes that must be followed. The facts of the case may lead to a number of other responsible parties in addition to the driver. These may include the company the driver works for or the manufacturer of a vehicle that was defective and may have caused the accident.
Also, your attorney will understand that Florida is a pure comparative negligence state. That is a legal concept meaning that a judge or jury will assign a measure of fault to every party as a percentage. Therefore, if you, as the victim, are judged to be 40 percent at fault, you will be limited to recovering no more than 60 percent of the value of the damages in your accident. That means finding a highly skilled car accident attorney with the knowledge and resources to investigate and analyze the facts of the case so as to minimize the amount of fault assessed against you and maximize your compensation. This is why having an experienced and highly skilled attorney, like those at the Kemp, Ruge & Green Law Group, on your side is essential. They will make sure every detail of the case is handled properly and in a way that maximizes the compensation you deserve.
When you have been injured in a car accident, there is a lot happening and there is a lot to consider. However, one thing you shouldn’t have to worry about is how to jump through legal hoops to be able to pay for everything you have to deal with, especially if someone else is at fault.
