Our Approach to Car Accident Cases
When you are trying to recover from serious injuries, it can be all but impossible to address the many aspects of your case all by yourself. To help you focus on your recovery, our staff will take care of every step in the legal process.
Our approach involves the following:
- Gathering evidence relating to your accident
- Obtaining official police reports
- Securing witness testimony
- Hiring accident experts if necessary
- Addressing compensation for your car replacement or repair
- Negotiating a settlement with the insurance company
- Preparing for court trial if a settlement proves impossible or against your best interests
This approach, combined with our refusal to back down from high-pressure insurance companies, has given us a strong reputation in Central Florida and throughout the country. This reputation leads to many word-of-mouth referrals, and can even influence the insurance company’s actions during your pursuit of compensation for your losses.
Wrongful Death in Car Accident Fatalities
It is a sad truth that car accidents are one of the leading causes of death in the United States. There were almost 3,000 traffic-related deaths in Florida alone last year. If your loved one was killed in a car accident, you may be able to file a wrongful death claim. At Politis & Matovina, we would never insinuate that any type of monetary compensation can make up for the loss of your loved one. However, compensation can be an essential tool to ease the burden of a loved one's untimely passing.
Compensation in a wrongful death claim can cover:
- Hospital and other medical expenses
- Funeral and memorial costs
- Lost wages or livelihood
In order to file a wrongful death claim, you must be a family member of the deceased, such as: 1)The spouse, children, or parents of the deceased, 2) A blood relative or adoptive sibling that was dependent on the deceased. It is also important to note that you only have two years in which to file a wrongful death claim. We encourage you to call our office to speak with a Daytona Beach car accident attorney who can review your unique situation and provide a plan moving forward.
