Orlando Accident and Injury Lawyer
111 N. Orange Avenue, Suite 800
Orlando, FL 32801
Most people give little thought to accidents and accidental injury until they have the misfortune to be injured in an accident. This is understandable but it also means that almost everyone will be unfamiliar with how an accident and injury lawyer can help them receive the compensation that they are due.
What Is an Accident and Injury Lawyer?
An accident and injury lawyer handles injury cases for his or her clients who have been accidentally injured. These lawyers will advise their clients on matters such as how to deal with insurance companies or other organizations that may be responsible for paying the compensation that a client is requesting following an injury. In many cases this lawyer will be able to assist clients in locating the proper medical care providers that are specialists in the treatment of different types on injuries or in locating social service agencies that may help the client during their recovery period following an injury.
An accident and injury lawyer will also have an in-depth knowledge of the local business community and the types of accidental injuries that are commonly seen in the area. As an example, the Orlando accident and injury lawyer at the Doan law Firm will be familiar with injuries commonly occurring at the local theme and amusement parks or other entertainment and shopping venues. In personal injury cases, this knowledge will help the lawyer develop a plan that will assure the client is getting a fair settlement of their injury claim.
Types of Cases That an Accident and Injury Lawyer Will Handle
All accident and injury lawyers have undergone the same general training in law school. Some lawyers, however, have personal preferences as to the types of cases they will handle. As an example, some lawyers prefer to handle medical malpractice cases while others enjoy managing commercial truck accident injuries.
In general, accident and injury cases will fall into one or more of the following groups:
- Motor vehicle accidents including automobile, motorcycle, bus, and ATV accidents
- Public transportation accidents involving buses, passenger trains, taxis, and rideshare accidents
- Defective products cases involving appliances, medications, auto and motorcycle parts, and consumer products
- Personal injury on private property such as theme parks, shopping centers, parking areas, and movie theaters
- Medical malpractice cases, with or without wrongful death
- Wrongful death cases
There are, of course, many other cases that an Orlando accident and injury lawyer will manage for his or her clients. For more information on specific injuries, please contact the Orlando accident and injury lawyer at the Doan Law Firm by calling (800) 349-0000.
Following an accident you will usually have unexpected expenses such as medical bills and the costs of replacing or repairing personal property such as your auto or motorcycle. If you are unsure what you should do after an injury or how to deal with an insurance company, you should consult with an accident and injury lawyer at the earliest possible date after your injury.
Collecting Damages After an Accident
Damages is the term that attorneys use to describe the total amount and types of compensation awarded to the victim of an accident.
Such compensation can include:
- Lost wages or other income due to an injury and during recovery from the injury
- Current and anticipated future medical expenses
- Repair or replacement of damaged personal property
- Compensation for any pain, emotional distress, or psychological trauma related to the accident
- Punitive damages
Since all accidents are unique to the individual victim it should be no surprise that each damage award is also unique. An accident and injury lawyer will always work to make sure that the client receives all the damages they are entitled to.
