What To Do After A Car Accident

What to do if You've Been Involved in Car Accident

The number of serious motor vehicle accidents that occurs each year is staggering. In 2013 alone, more than 2.3 million people suffered injuries and more than 32,000 died as a result of a vehicle crash. Most people have been involved in some type of vehicle accident at some point in their life. There are many different issues that must be handled following an accident and it is important to understand your rights and protect your best interests.After an automobile accident, regardless of whether it involves a car, truck, motorcycle or tractor-trailer, it is important to talk to an experienced attorney before moving forward with any type of insurance claim. While investigating your claim and the circumstances surrounding the accident, our injury attorneys take the time to

  • Gather witness statements
  • Review medical records for all treatments, physical therapy sessions and surgeries
  • Obtain police reports and photographs from the scene of the crash
  • Interview expert witnesses

During this process, the insurance company often tries to limit how much money they have to pay and offer substantially less than the total cost of your injuries and losses. We negotiate on your behalf and obtain full and fair compensation. In the event that negotiations fail to resolve disputes, we aren’t afraid to take your case to trial to ensure that you have the best chance at full recovery. You may be able to recover damages for:

  • Medical expenses including current and future costs
  • Lost wages for both past and future time out of work
  • Physical pain and suffering
  • Emotional distress

After a car accident, Florida law limits how long you have to file a claim for the injuries you’ve suffered. Our attorneys are experienced at skillfully handling cases and complying with all applicable Statutes of Limitation.

Throughout the entire process, there are often unexpected challenges and legal matters that must be handled expediently. Our primary goal is to restore your quality of life and help you move in the best possible position. For answers to any questions about car accidents and the process of obtaining compensation, call (561) 293-2600 or send an email today.

“Attorneys Greg Francis and Ryan Fletcher at Osborne & Francis Law Firm represented me in my personal injury case.The defendant drew a line in the sand and was adamant on a settlement amount I was almost willing to accept. After the dust settled and the smoke cleared, we settled for 3 times that amount!!! When they say ‘Real Tough Lawyers,’ they mean it.”

Quick and fair resolution to a unique case. On advice of my own attorney, I engaged Joseph Osborne of Osborne & Francis of Boca Raton, FL. Mr. Osborne had considerable experience in cases such as mine and the results showed that. Mr. Osborne and his staff were very helpful, kept me up to date, and listened to my input. The settlement was very fair as far as I am concerned.

“I am so thankful for EVERYONE, the entire staff at Osborne & Francis Law, for mentoring me through the mediation process with my hip replacement failures. I didn't realize how MUCH pressure they relieved me of by helping me deal with the reality of this traumatic time in my life, as it was OVER so quickly with a positive result. My family is grateful to have their mom HAPPY & FOCUSED on the future, rather than worrying over what happened in the past! FAST FORWARD, we are LIVING LIFE to the fullest once again!”

“I couldn’t have asked for a better lawyer/ firm — everything was done professionally exactly how I wanted. Due to COVID my personal attorney Mr. Garcia was still able to make things work in a timely manner and he never made me feel like he wasn’t working. Overall I’m happy with how my case turned out and I would recommend him and this law firm to anyone. 100% satisfied.”
