Auto Accident Attorney in Winter Garden, Florida
It is an unfortunate fact of life that vehicle accidents will happen to most of us at one time or another. Even if you are the most cautious driver in the world, you just cannot account for the behaviors of other drivers on the road and avoid all of their mistakes. If it so happens that you have been injured in a vehicle accident because of someone else’s recklessness, distraction, or negligence, you should not have to finance all of your medical care and lost wages as you heal. This is why people file personal injury claims and is the sole focus of our legal practice. We will help you get the compensation you need and deserve. Contact Cressman Law Firm, P.A. today to discuss your legal options.

Personal Injury Protection in Florida
Personal Injury Protection is a form of no-fault insurance that can be of tremendous assistance after being injured in an accident. PIP insurance does not allow you to seek compensation for pain and suffering, since your insurance provider is not responsible for your accident. Therefore, if your injuries are very severe or catastrophic, you may be able to sue the other driver for additional damages to make up for the difference between what your insurance provider will pay and your ongoing medical needs. This is called the injury threshold. Generally speaking, you exceed the injury threshold if you experience any of the following:
- Permanent injuries, such as paralyzation or vision loss
- Significant or permanent disfigurement, such as loss of limbs or severe burns
You may also sue the other driver for physical damages to your vehicle, as these are not covered by your PIP insurance.
