New York Resident Gets Into Accident In Orlando Florida and Resolves Case For Policy Limits

New York Resident Gets Into An Automobile Accident
Did you know that an out of state resident who gets injured in an automobile accident in Florida can still recover money for injuries sustained in the accident?
Our client, a middle aged woman, was driving as a passenger in a relative’s car in Orlando, Florida. Our client at all times during her case resided in New York but was visiting her family in Orlando. As she was returning from Disneyworld suddenly and without warning another driver lost control of their car and struck our client in the rear. Immediately after the accident our client felt pain in her neck and back. Incorrectly believing that she could not file a claim in Florida when she did not reside in Florida, she flew back to New York and hoped she would recover on her own. A couple days passed and the pain did not improve. Not knowing what else to do she called the Orlando Automobile Accident and Injury Attorneys Dell and Schaefer. Our firm dispelled her belief that she had no recourse. We informed her she would be afforded the same rights to receive compensation as any other injured victim in Florida. Our firm signed up the client electronically through the internet and began the process of zealously representing her interests in the matter.
Client Undergoes Treatment In New York
Our client sought the care and medical attention of a local chiropractor and wellness center in New York. The doctor received payment from our client’s PIP coverage under her automobile policy. After months of treatment without long term relief from pain, our client was referred to an orthopedic doctor. The orthopedic doctor administered injections for pain. Because our client is a full time mother and not able to take time off from work, she declined any surgical intervention.
Dell & Schaefer Negotiate A Settlement
After the treatment finished our firm filed a bodily injury demand with the tortfeasor’s insurance company. Our firm sought monetary compensation for bodily injury, property damage, pain and suffering, disability, disfigurement, loss of consortium, past and future medical expenses, lost wages, and impairment of ability to earn future wages. After a lengthy negotiation, the case settled for the policy limits.
Our client was absolutely thrilled that our firm was able to get a recovery despite the fact that she did not reside in Florida. If you think injuries can be expensive, then try ignorance of the law. Never assume anything. Call us for a free consultation. We do not charge a cost or fee unless we recover money for you.
