We've Recovered Hundreds of Millions of Dollars

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. Better yet, we will strive to always keep you informed whenever there is an important step or decision, so you won’t have to be afraid about being left in the dark.

Our approach to car accident casework involves:

  • Obtaining official police reports
  • Securing witness testimonies
  • Hiring accident reconstruction experts if necessary
  • Calculating compensation for medical bills, vehicle repairs, lost wages, and more
  • Negotiating a settlement with the insurance company if possible
  • Preparing for court trial if a settlement proves impossible or against your best interests

This approach combined with our refusal to back down when faced with bullying insurance company tactics has given us a strong reputation in Central Florida and throughout the country. Many of our cases come from word-of-mouth referrals and referrals from other law firms. Seeing our name on a demand letter or docket can even influence the insurance company’s actions upfront, such as pre-pressuring them into settling because they know a courtroom fight against us could be futile.

Wrongful Deaths Caused by Car Accident

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 in their name to seek some sense of closure and justice. At Politis & Matovina, we know that monetary compensation can never 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 the deceased would have earned
  • Lost value of the deceased’s guidance and companionship

To file a wrongful death claim, you must be a family member of the deceased, such as a spouse, child, parent, or a blood relative or adoptive sibling who 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.

What are the Most Common Injuries from Car Accidents?

A car accident can lead to a variety of injuries, some of which will heal in a few days while others will be permanent. No matter what sort of injury you suffered, if it was caused by another driver’s negligence, then you should not be the one who has to pay for its treatment.

Some of the most common car accident injuries are:

  • Head and brain injuries: A blow to the head can damage the brain and cause a traumatic brain injury (TBI). A TBI can be mild, like a concussion, or severe enough to impair your motor functions, speech, vision, and memory.
  • Spinal cord injuries: Broken vertebrae, torn ligaments, or other damage to the spinal cord can cause immediate and lifelong injuries. In worst-case scenarios, spinal cord injury will cause paralysis.
  • Scarring: Lacerations caused by shattered glass and twisted metal in a car accident can cause noticeable scarring and permanent disfigurement. Compensation can be paid to a car accident claimant who has been permanently disfigured, even if the scars no longer cause physical pain or disability.
  • Broken bones: Severe impact accidents like T-bone accidents and rollover accidents are commonly linked to multiple fractures. Feet, legs, and arms are broken the most often in car accidents because these body parts are used to brace for impact.
  • Amputations: When the fingers, toes, arms, or legs of a victim are too damaged to be saved, they could be medically amputated. Although prosthetics can help, amputations will still cause permanent disabilities in nearly all cases.

How Do You Know If You Have Whiplash from a Car Accident?

A common yet deceptively severe car accident injury is whiplash. When the neck is rocked back and forth abruptly and violently, the tendons, muscles, and ligaments in the neck and upper back can tear or twist, which is called a whiplash injury when diagnosed. Whiplash can begin as pain subtle enough to trick people into thinking they are fine. However, hours or days later, whiplash can worsen to the point that the victim is in crippling pain and in need of immediate medical attention, so it is important to always see a doctor soon after a crash.

All car accidents can cause whiplash, but the neck injury is most often seen in rear-end accidents. People in the front car are vulnerable to whiplash due to the way that the impact of the crash will move their vehicle and be absorbed by their bodies.

Why Do I Need an Attorney for My Car Accident Case?

Any lawyer can claim to offer aggressive representation, but at Politis & Matovina, P.A., our attorneys believe that aggression is just part of the personal injury equation. Our auto accident lawyers go a step further to offer personalized attention to the unique needs of you and your case.

While we aggressively negotiate with the insurance company, we are also busy working to ensure that you feel comfortable with your proceedings and understand exactly what is happening. By adding this extra depth of a personal relationship to our representation, we hope to take the fear out of your legal situation and allow you to focus on your physical wellbeing.
