An Experienced Advocate And Guide For Insurance And Car Accidents In West Palm Beach

The American insurance system is set up to protect drivers who are required by law to buy car insurance to be able to drive. It protects the purchaser of the insurance policy and other drivers, like you, who are injured in unfortunate car accidents and other motor vehicle collisions.

That said, Palm Beach attorney Patrick Tighe knows firsthand how insurance companies protect their bottom line rather than people who are injured. In his considerable career as a personal injury attorney at X1Law, P.A., he has fought for clients whose insurance providers cared more about their profits than paying a claim.

Insurance Companies Are Not On Your Side

Lawyers for the named defendant are in court representing only one interest, and that is the financial interest of the insurance company. The insurance company’s lawyers are hired guns seeking to deny and delay you the compensation you justly deserve.

Insurance companies must be held to their commitment to pay for damages under the contract to protect the defendant in case of an accident. They collected the insurance premiums before, during, and after the accident and they should do all that is possible to put you back in the position you were in before you were injured by someone else’s negligence. During your suffering, the insurance company continues to profit.

The Answers You Need About Insurance In Florida

It is common to feel confused about car insurance law. This complex legal field requires the knowledge of an attorney. In the following question-and-answer segment, you will find some of the information you are looking for about car insurance issues after an auto accident.

What if I disagree with the insurance company’s settlement offer in Florida?

If, after extensive negotiations, the insurance company has not offered a fair settlement, Patrick Tighe may need to take your claim to trial. Often, a representative of the insurance company will be present at trial. This representative will monitor the trial and will sometimes give a last-minute offer when they realize that the insurance company will be losing your case. This is unfortunately another tactic of the insurance industry. Instead of determining what the appropriate compensation is for an injured party and doing the right thing by honoring the commitment it made, the insurance company will deny, delay and defend against valid claims to hold onto their corporate profits.

What if I can’t afford an attorney?

Patrick Tighe handles all personal injury claims on a contingency fee basis. This means that he does not charge you any fees upfront. You do not pay him a dime unless he recovers compensation. If he recovers a settlement or a verdict, you pay him a small fraction of the percentage.

What if I don’t want to ruin the other driver’s life with a claim?

The named other party in your claim may be another individual – maybe someone like you. However, this person does not have responsibility for paying the settlement or verdict. This responsibility is solely that of their insurance company. The real reason for the trial is not to determine which driver was at fault for the injury but to hold the insurance company of the named defendant/opposing party accountable.

How can I protect my rights during my case?

Simply put, contacting an experienced Florida personal injury attorney immediately after an accident is the best way to ensure your rights are protected in this process. Attorney Patrick Tighe works with police, and insurance companies as well as gathering other witnesses and evidence to ensure that all information is available so that you can receive compensation for the negligence of others.
