Last week a Hernando County woman died in a car crash on Wiscon Road when another car failed to stop at a stop sign and struck the deceased’s truck. Such a tragedy for two families both suffering loss due to auto negligence. People call personal injury attorneys for many reasons. Sometimes they need an auto accident lawyer because they can't get the medical care they need. Sometimes they call a car accident attorney because the other person’s insurance company is not being reasonable with settlement offers.
Unfortunately, families that suffer the loss of a loved one often don’t wish to prolong the agony of such an ordeal and simply accept the insurance company’s money and close the case. This is truly unfortunate for several reasons. First, without a thorough investigation of the facts of the crash, you can not truly determine all responsible parties. Other responsible parties mean other responsible insurance companies.
Second, just because one insurance company offers to tender their available policy limits doesn’t mean that is all the insurance money available. An experienced and aggressive personal injury lawyer can investigate ALL potential avenues of financial recovery.
For instance, is the driver that caused the accident driving their car? If not, who owns the vehicle and who is it insured by. This means you may recover money from the driver’s insurance company and the owner of the car’s insurance company. Why was the person driving that day? Were they in the course and scope of their employment? If the answer to that question is yes, it can result in a case like this settling for millions instead of thousands.
