An injured car accident victim may be entitled to receive financial compensation for many or all of their post-accident concerns. The car accident victim’s family may also be entitled to receive financial compensation resulting from the injuries suffered by the victim. Often, car crash victims do not receive full compensation for their injuries, pain and other concerns.
An average person is unaware of the full value of their claim and other benefits available to them through the wrongdoer’s insurance and their own insurance. This is where an experienced personal injury lawyer like Patrick Tighe can help you to maximize your recovery.

How Car Accident Claims Work
There are two possible avenues for getting compensation for a car crash: an insurance claim and a personal injury claim.
You can obtain compensation for your medical bills and property damage through your own insurance – specifically, personal injury protection (PIP) coverage. However, if your coverage limits aren’t enough, you may have grounds to pursue a personal injury claim against the negligent driver or party who contributed to your crash.
The process is different for each type of claim. Attorney Patrick Tighe can help you with both. He can answer your questions to help you get the compensation you deserve.
Should I hire an attorney after a car accident in Florida?
Yes. A lawyer can serve as your representative and advocate in navigating the insurance claim process. They can also pursue a personal injury lawsuit in court if warranted.
What will a car accident attorney cost?
Most car accident lawyers, including Patrick, work on a contingency fee basis. That means you won’t have to pay attorney fees upfront. Instead, you will pay a percentage of what you recover. If your lawyer isn’t successful in getting compensation for you, you won’t have to pay any fees.
How long after a car accident can I sue in Florida?
In Florida, you generally have two years from the date of the accident to file a personal injury lawsuit. However, you shouldn’t wait that long to get an attorney involved. A lawyer can help you preserve evidence and conduct a prompt investigation to get you compensation sooner rather than later.

How does PIP insurance work vs. at-fault driver’s insurance under Florida law?
Florida is a no-fault state for purposes of auto insurance. After an accident, you will get medical coverage under the personal injury protection (PIP) portion of your own insurance. However, if your damages (expenses) exceed your insurance limits, you may be able to seek further compensation from the at-fault driver’s insurance. Our lawyer can advise you about whether this is an option in your case.
