Car accidents can be life-altering. When a person suffers an injury in a car crash, it can set them on a long road filled with painful medical treatments, missed job opportunities, and financial disruption. But it doesn’t have to be this way. According to Florida law, you have a right to compensation if you were injured in a car accident caused by someone else. The law protects your right to pursue the responsible person and hold them accountable for what you have suffered. At the Law Office of Michael D. Barber, we fully understand the life-changing consequences of a car accident. We know what is at stake and this is why our Florida accident and injury attorney fights tooth and nail on behalf of our clients to recover the compensation they deserve.

If you or a loved one was injured or suffered property damage in a Florida car accident, contact Attorney Michael Barber today. Our services include a free case review to help you understand your rights after the accident and how to proceed with recovering compensation.
Florida law expressly protects the rights of victims in car crashes to pursue compensation. The recognition is that drivers owe a duty to other road users to drive safely and ensure they don’t pose a threat of injury or property damage to others. As a result, anyone that fails to pay attention to the road laws or is reckless with using their vehicle can be held responsible. Sadly, many people fail to heed the road laws and as a result, thousands of car crashes happen every day leading to life-threatening injuries. Some of the causes of these car accidents include:
Securing the services of a skilled accident and injury attorney in Florida will be critical to securing the compensation you deserve.
Car accidents can involve complex rules and procedures that will kick into effect from the moment the car accident occurs. As a result, these cases tend to move very quickly and plaintiffs without the proper assistance can start to feel like they are in over their heads.
In addition, plaintiffs in these cases will likely be going up against powerful insurance companies with decades of experience. These insurance companies are more interested in protecting their bottom line than compensating you for your accident, and they will be delighted to see that you don’t have an attorney.
They typically try to pay much less than a claim is worth, and will be doing everything within their power to get you to accept a low-ball offer before an attorney gets involved. This is because they know that attorneys understand their tactics and have the legal knowledge and experience to beat them at their game.
Just by getting an experienced attorney involved in your case, you significantly increase the chances of a positive outcome. And with highly capable Florida accident and injury attorneys such as Michael Barber, you can rest assured that you will receive the best outcome possible. When you contact the Law Office of Michael D. Barber, we will:
Take your case to court: Where the insurance company fails to offer a satisfactory settlement, we will file a lawsuit on your behalf and show a jury why you deserve to collect every penny you’re entitled to.
Upon successful proof of your case, the court will award compensation to you based on the loss you have suffered. This will include economic damages which typically cover medical bills, future medical treatment, loss of wages, out of pocket expenses and any other monetary loss you suffered.
In addition, the court may award non-economic damages which include compensation for the emotional distress and pain and suffering the accident caused you.
If you or a loved one were injured in a car, truck, or motorcycle accident , contact Attorney Michael Barber for help today. You deserve the opportunity to secure fair compensation and justice that you are entitled to.
