Seminole Injury Attorney
The Law Offices of Charles D. Scott is a family owned, personal injury law firm serving the needs of Florida families since 1997, that offers legal services in the Seminole Community. Because of the high cost of living in this area coupled with potentially hazardous weather and a dense population, it is a very good idea to have an injury attorney on your side. An injury lawyer can try to help you get your medical bills paid in the event of a personal injury, versus having to deal with medical bills, insurance claims and other issues all on your own.
Seminole, Florida is a densely packed urban area that is popular because of its proximity to Lake Seminole, which is a calm lake enclosed by a tidal bank. The population density is over four thousand people per square mile, and living in this premium residential area is expensive, especially homes on Lake Seminole.
An injury attorney will strive to protect accident victims from insurance companies who refuse to pay. This can be one’s own insurance company or the carrier of the at fault party. No matter who is at fault, the result is often a ferocious struggle to resolve an accident claim. An injury attorney will strive to make a difference in the financial outcome of your case.
Personal injury can occur even when human error has little part to play. Seminole is in a direct line with the Gulf of Mexico, and only a tidal bank protects this town from nasty waves and hurricane weather.
Florida PIP laws require an insurance company to pay at least 80 percent of the medical expenses related to an accident, including x-ray expenses and a hospital room. Recent changes in the PIP law can severely limit the payment of PIP benefits if medical care is not sought within 14 days of an automobile accident. Modern medicine entails many expenses, and it is implausible to cover these costs without insurance. An established personal injury lawyer will first try to get your medical bills paid by your PIP insurance, then Health Insurance, and any remaining bills paid through the at fault drivers liability insurance.
The qualities to look for in an Injury Attorney include personal service, cases personally handled by a lawyer not a paralegal, and a reputation of ethical representation.
