If you’ve suffered injuries in a Tallahassee car accident, our attorneys are ready and able to help you get the compensation you’re owed for your injuries.

Tallahassee Car Accident Attorneys Can Help You Receive PIP Insurance Benefits
Tallahassee is governed by a series of complex rules for no-fault insurance coverage that apply to the state of Florida. Under Florida law, drivers must generally carry a minimum of $10,000 in PIP. If you do not have an “Emergency Medical Condition,” PIP insurance coverage is capped at $2,500. Florida law defines “Emergency Medical Condition” as a medical condition that requires immediate medical attention and could reasonably be expected to result in serious jeopardy to the patient’s health.
In the event of an accident, it’s important that you seek medical attention immediately, even if you don’t exhibit signs of injury at the time of the accident. PIP insurance will only provide coverage for your medical expenses should you seek treatment within two weeks of the accident. In the event that you did not seek medical insurance benefits provided by PIP during the two-week window, our attorneys may be able to help you recover medical assistance under PIP. Contact our attorneys immediately if you missed the 14-day window for PIP medical benefit collection.
We Have Experience Helping Those Injured in Car and Truck Accidents
In certain cases, car accident victims are allowed to recover compensation above and beyond PIP limits by filing a personal injury lawsuit against the at-fault driver. Accident claims are handled differently depending on the types of vehicles that were involved in the crash.
Car accidents typically involve litigation against the errant driver once a case makes it to trial. Truck accidents involving long-haul trucks often result in litigation against the truck company that employs the driver at fault. For car and truck accidents, our attorneys are able to exercise a number of options during the discovery (or information gathering) process in order to gather evidence for your case.
They may interview witnesses, review footage from traffic cameras, review accident reports, and seek the results of sobriety tests in order to prove that the driver that caused your injury was at fault. Our Tallahassee accident attorneys are ready and willing to take your case to trial should a proper settlement not be reached.
We Also Handle Motorcycle Accidents
After a motorcycle accident, our Tallahassee attorneys will work with you to ensure that you receive proper compensation for medical bills, lost wages, and pain and suffering. Because motorcyclists are generally not covered by PIP, injured motorcyclists can more easily seek damages. Therefore, your motorcycle accident attorney may be able to file a lawsuit against a negligent driver or other party seeking damages for medical bills, lost wages, and pain and suffering.
