Palmetto Car Accident Attorneys
Palmetto Car Accident Attorneys, McQuaid and Douglas, regularly help victims receive compensation for their damages caused by auto accidents.
Injuries caused by car accidents are often severe and trigger expensive medical bills, lost wages and suffering.
If someone else was to blame, you shouldn’t have to foot the bill. You’ve already suffered enough. Thankfully, a personal injury claim can be made against the at-fault party’s insurance company.
However, insurance companies are notorious for denying and undervaluing claims.
We won’t let this happen. We will handle all communications and legal matters on your behalf. By carrying out thorough investigations and proving a link between the accident and your suffering, we can win you the damages you deserve.
Our car accident attorneys know insurers’ tricks and don’t bend to manipulation.
In most cases, we will avoid a full trial by agreeing to a settlement after making the reality of the situation clear to the opposing party.
Palmetto Truck Accident Attorneys
If you’ve been injured in a truck accident, our truck accident attorneys can fight on your behalf to win you the money you deserve to allow you to recover.
Truck accidents involve extremely heavy vehicles, which can cause life-changing injuries. These injuries should not be taken lightly and deserve considerable compensation settlements.
Truck accidents are usually more complicated than other auto accidents, as multiple parties may be at fault. For example, the truck driver may have been distracted, the company may have failed to maintain their vehicles correctly or there may have been a part malfunction.
Our Palmetto personal injury attorneys can conduct independent investigations, before tackling complex and layered corporate trucking companies. We will not bow to their pressure and have the experience and legal knowledge to handle their tricks.
Palmetto Motorcycle Accident Attorneys
Our Palmetto motorcycle accident attorneys are well-positioned to help any victims of motorcycle accidents receive the compensation they deserve.
Despite being a great location for motorcycle riding, Palmetto is also rife with motorcycle accidents resulting in burns, brain injuries, and severe disabilities.
We know that motorcyclists are often quickly blamed for accidents and that stereotypes work against them. We won’t let this happen.
If someone else was at fault, we will prove it and show how this has affected your life and finances.
Motorcyclists are also often forced to use their own insurance provider due to a lack of coverage from the at-fault driver. In all cases, our motorcycle accident attorneys work to identify every possible source of compensation.
Palmetto Bicycle Accident Attorneys
If you’ve been hit or injured while riding your bike, then our bicycle accident attorneys can help you recover the damages.
Bicycle accidents can come in all severities, but are usually life-changing. If that applies to you, we know the extremes you and your finances will be pushed to.
Whether you were hit by a reckless driver, speeding driver or thrown off your bike due to a malfunction, we will ensure the relevant insurance company pays you.
Acting as your advocate from start to finish, we will ensure you are never undervalued so you can cover the costs of medical treatments, equipment and receive compensation for your suffering.
Palmetto Slip and Fall Attorneys
Victims of slips and falls can file claims against property or business owners if their wrongdoing caused the accident.
If the property owner didn’t clear a hazard away or provide a warning of the hazard, then they are most likely at fault.
These cases should never be handled alone, as solid evidence is required to prove that the property owner knew or should have known about the cause of your accident.
Property owners and insurance companies will also only have their own interests in mind, and are known for manipulating victims into feeling stupid or to blame.
Our Palmetto slip and fall attorneys know that these accidents cause more than bumps and bruises. Hip fractures, brain injuries and spinal cord injuries are just a few examples of expensive and life-changing injuries.
We will fight aggressively to prove the property owner or business was at fault and that you deserve compensation.
Palmetto DUI Accident Attorneys
Our Drunk driver (DUI) accident attorneys are well aware of the pain and anguish caused by inexcusable drunk driving accidents.
Driving Under the Influence results in over 16,000 accidents in Florida every year, many of which result in life-changing injuries.
Our Palmetto DUI accident attorneys will establish and prove who is liable, before showing how the accident resulted in your damages.
Palmetto Hit and Run Accident Attorneys
Our Palmetto Hit and Run accident attorneys can help victims receive compensation in the complicated scenario where the at-fault driver fled the scene.
By law, all drivers in Palmetto must remain at the accident scene if the property or bodily damage occurred.
Using our resources, our Palmetto personal injury attorneys will work tirelessly to locate the at-fault driver. However, in the worst-case scenario where they cannot be found, we will liaise with your own insurance company to bring the compensation you deserve.
Palmetto Uber and Lyft Accident Attorneys
Our Palmetto Uber and Lyft accident attorneys can help victims of rideshare accidents to receive compensation for their damages.
Liability in ride-sharing accidents depends on the circumstances, but we will determine which insurance policy and party are responsible to bring you the compensation you deserve.
Palmetto Burn Injury Attorneys
With over 486,000 burn injury victims in the U.S. every year, the insurance industry is familiar with denying and undervaluing burn victims.
Our Palmetto burn injury attorneys know the pain and suffering you’ve experienced and will fight on your behalf to receive compensation for both your suffering and economic damages.
We regularly work with victims of apartment complex fires, vehicle fires, airbag burns, hot liquid burns, defective products and burns caused by the negligent behavior of others.
Palmetto Dog Bite Attorneys
Our Palmetto dog bite attorneys can help injury and scar victims receive compensation for their suffering and economic damages.
From medical treatment to surgery and cosmetic treatment, you shouldn’t have to pay a cent if someone else’s dog attacked you.
We will fight on your behalf so the insurance companies of dog owners and property owners pay you the money you deserve.
Palmetto Pedestrian Accident Attorneys
If a motorist or cyclist hit you while you were out walking and it wasn’t your fault, our pedestrian accident attorneys can help.
By fighting the root cause of the accident, we will collect evidence to show that the other party’s negligence has severely impacted your life and finances.
Causes of pedestrian accidents may include speeding, running a red light, failure to yield, driving recklessly, drunk driving, driving while texting and much more.
Palmetto Brain Injury Accident Attorneys
Brain injuries are life-changing. Even the least severe can see victims miss work and suffer painful headaches, while the most severe can require constant care and completely change a victim’s life.
If you or a loved one has suffered a brain injury, our Palmetto brain injury accident attorneys can help.
We will fight aggressively to earn you and your family the compensation you deserve. Our Palmetto personal injury attorneys know these injuries can linger for decades and that the knock-on effects should not be underestimated.
Palmetto Spinal Cord Injury Attorneys
Damage to the spinal cord can alter an individual’s life forever. Recovery and rehabilitation can be extremely expensive. Victims must be compensated for their suffering and future economic losses.
Our Palmetto spinal cord injury attorneys can help you understand you or your loved one’s legal rights and tackle insurance companies on your behalf.
While proving you deserve compensation is one aspect of our job, we will also remain fully focused on showing the true value of your damages is likely far higher than an insurer initially offers.
Palmetto Sexual Abuse Attorneys
Sexual abuse is heartbreakingly far more common than people believe. Although victims in recent years have been more supported in reporting them, it is still an extremely tough experience to share.
Our Palmetto sexual abuse attorneys will handle your case on your behalf, ensuring you are not pressured, manipulated or distressed by the legal process and opposing parties.
If you or your child were sexually abused, you may be able to file a lawsuit against the abuser or against the place where the abuser was employed.
Even if many years have passed since the abuse, you may still be able to file a lawsuit.
Victims are welcome to receive a confidential and free consultation with our Palmetto sexual abuse attorneys.
Palmetto Premises Liability Attorneys
If you’ve suffered an injury due to an unsafe or dangerous property, then our Palmetto premises liability attorneys can help.
If the following factors can be displayed, then our Palmetto personal injury attorneys can work to bring you the true compensation value that you deserve:
- The property owner was aware or should have been aware of dangerous conditions.
- The property owner failed to fix or give warnings of these dangerous conditions.
- The person was injured as a result of the dangerous condition.
Palmetto Scooter, Moped and Motorized Bike Accident Attorneys
Scooters, mopeds and motorized bikes are extremely popular throughout Palmetto and Florida as tourists enjoy the fun mode of transport.
