The insurance company isn’t going to volunteer information about the actual value of your claim. They may hope that you accept a small settlement right away. The team at Jack Bernstein, Injury Attorneys have more than 36 years of experience acting as car accident lawyers in St. Petersburg. Don’t take the insurance company’s word for it. You may be missing out on compensation that you deserve. Instead, we invite you to meet with them for a complimentary review of your case.
By reviewing the details of your case, the goal is to make sure that you’re handling the aftermath of your car accident in the best possible light. If the insurance company offers you a fair settlement, we can let you know and give you the confidence that you’re receiving the appropriate compensation. But if the insurance company isn’t valuing your claim fairly, our legal team can work on your behalf to ensure that your compensation accurately reflects the value of your losses.
When you’re in a car accident, you suffer emotionally and mentally. You might have flashbacks, and you may have post-traumatic stress disorder.

We know what steps you need to follow in order to successfully bring your claim for compensation. Along the way, we make sure that you understand what to do at every stage in order to navigate the claims process as smoothly and successfully as possible.

In any Florida car accident case, it’s critically important to seek medical care as soon as possible after your accident. Identifying and documenting your injuries immediately after a car accident not only helps you begin your recovery, but it also enables you to establish that the injuries are the result of the accident.
Your claim for compensation can include any type of medical expense that you incur. Costs for x-rays, MRIs, casts, splints, bandages, and mobile devices are just some of the expenses that you may include in your claim. Return visits to the doctor to check on progress may also be part of your claim.
Even if you’re still receiving treatment for your car accident injuries, it’s important to speak with an attorney as soon as possible. There are strict deadlines when bringing your claim.
