Those who face serious injury from a car accident often experience devastation in some aspect of their life. Serious car accidents are among the most difficult situations any person will ever face in their lifetime. In addition to the enormous medical bills that always follow, there are a number of other issues to be faced. If the injury is serious enough, many car accident victims may also face weeks, months or even years of physical therapy and rehabilitation and some extremely serious injuries may even lead to a lifetime of expensive care. Many car accident injuries leave the victim incapable of living life with the quality it had before the accident. For example, they may be unable to work the same job and they may find it difficult to maintain their income, which can lead to changes in their lifestyle and their family. When someone’s life has been devastated as a result of someone else’s negligence, the party or parties who are liable should be held responsible for the damages and the injuries they have caused. No one should be able to avoid that responsibility.

We serve Odessa because we live here and we like the weather, the surroundings and the people. Odessa is a beautiful place and the active lifestyle of the entire region has brought a lot of people to the area, to the point that the population has more than doubled over the course of a decade. Unfortunately, with growth comes more traffic and more traffic means more accidents. The roads in Pasco County, including the Odessa area, see their fair share of accidents.
Anyone who has been injured in an accident involving any type of vehicle will need assistance to deal with the insurance companies. It’s never a good idea for anyone to go it alone if they expect to recover everything they are entitled to from the responsible parties and their insurance. Odessa car accident cases can be very complex and very difficult, which means you will need the right Pasco County Car Accident Attorney on your side; one with the knowledge and experience to prove certain elements of the accident to the insurance companies and possibly a judge or jury.
Your attorney will have to prove that the injuries you’re claiming were specifically the result of that specific car accident. They will also have to prove that the responsible party’s actions violated their legal duty to exercise reasonable care. Your attorney will also have to prove that, without the actions of the liable party, the injuries would not have occurred. These types of elements are not always easy to prove; often, to do so, the attorney will need a very deep knowledge of the law and the skill to deal with the entire process.
A number of technical aspects of a car accident case must also be dealt with and the right Odessa car accident lawyer will have the ability to do so. For example, it is absolutely necessary to file your lawsuit before a certain deadline, known as the statute of limitations. If you don’t file by this date, you lose the ability to sue in this case, forever. The limit is affected by a number of factors, making the deadline longer or shorter. It can also a bad idea to file too soon, before doctors have been able to determine how long it will take to get to a full level of recovery.
Your lawyer will also understand that Florida is a pure comparative negligence state. What that means is, the jury will assign a percentage of fault to each party in the accident. If you are found to be 40 percent at fault for instance, you can’t recover more than 60 percent of your damages in the accident. You will need a highly skilled car accident lawyer to make sure you get the maximum compensation you’re entitled to by limiting that percentage to the greatest extent possible.
There are a great many other details that have to be considered in any car accident case. That’s why it’s necessary for a car accident lawyer to examine all facts in great detail, with an eye to how the Pasco County courts may see them. When the lawyer looks at the facts and determines what happened, additional parties may share fault in your accident. The ability to identify all parties to a car accident with potential liability may be very important when it comes to maximizing recovery for your injuries and damages, since many car insurance policies feature liability limits. In a car accident, in addition to the driver who crashed into your car, either vehicle involved may have been recalled for a defect, which may mean naming a vehicle manufacturer as a party.
To file any car accident lawsuit in Florida, it’s necessary to file a claim in the county where the accident occurred or where one or more of the defendants resides. Therefore, if you have a claim that must be brought in Pasco County, you will need an attorney on your side who has proper knowledge of those courts. That’s why the Odessa Car Accident lawyers at Kemp, Ruge & Green Law Group are an excellent choice. We have the knowledge and the expertise to handle your case in a way that maximizes your recovery and brings you peace of mind. And we put our clients first.
