Do You Need Compensation for a Car Crash?
At the law firm of James & Zimmerman, our lawyers have spent decades standing up for the rights of car accident victims in DeLand and the surrounding parts of Florida. When we move forward with your case, you will remain involved. As we seek compensation for medical bills, pain and suffering, lost wages and other costs, you can be confident that we are going after the results that are right for you.
Reviewing the Accident Report
In auto collisions, our investigation typically starts with a review of the accident report. This is the report put together by the law enforcement accident investigator. While this is a good place to start, our lawyers often find that it isn't entirely accurate.
Our investigation must delve deeper. We will obtain statements from witnesses. We will gather facts. We will get the details that we need to challenge the accident report if it is wrong and to show what really happened. This is how we build cases for success.

When compared with the injuries suffered in a car accident, the issue of damage to the vehicle may not seem very important. In reality, it is very important in terms of the legal strategy that we put together.
When the damage from the wreck is severe, the bodily harm to the person in the vehicle is not surprisingly also severe. However, today's cars are made with features that often keep the vehicle in good condition after an accident. The opposition may argue that the victim couldn't have suffered much harm if the car is still in good shape. Of course, this isn't necessarily true. We have to build a case designed to show how serious injuries occurred without serious damage to the car. Our experience means that this is something we know how to do.
The steps we take to get results in car accidents are similar to those we take in other motor vehicle accidents, such as:
