Approximately 250,000 people will be hurt this year in Florida injury crashes. Being involved in an injury crash is scary and stressful and can leave you feeling like your life has been upended.
After the accident, you may receive calls from an insurance adjuster looking to settle your case quickly and cheaply. The insurance company is in business to make money for themselves, and they do not have your best interest in mind. You should never agree to sign an injury settlement until you have received assistance from an experienced Florida car accident attorney.
