Personal Injury Lawsuits and Claims

Personal injury accidents arise from many different circumstances. Sometimes they arise from vehicle collisions. It is not uncommon for drivers to operate vehicles when they are sleepy, unable to see, talking on a cell phone, intoxicated or distracted. Sometimes car accidents can be caused by faulty equipment or inadequate signage, as well. Accidents also occur for a host of other reasons such as slipping or tripping, medical malpractice and animal bites.

No matter the circumstances surrounding your accident, it is important to know that you must file a claim within a specified timeframe, or you will lose your right to seek compensation. Most victims are not familiar with the proper documents or procedure for filing a claim. Therefore, it is imperative to use an experienced attorney who is familiar with Florida's laws and has a proven track record. Dora Kerner's has years of experience negotiating with insurance companies, participating in settlement negotiations and trying cases. Let her expertise work for you.

Remember, it is vital to discuss your case with an attorney before attempting to negotiate with an insurance company yourself. The Law Office of Dora Kerner provides a free consultation to each client to evaluate their case and learn about the details. Insurance companies will have their own attorneys, and the company is interested in paying you as little as possible. Insurance companies may try to get you to admit fault. Often they may require you to sign papers that prevent you from obtaining appropriate compensation. Dora Kerner has experience dealing with insurance companies and, as your Gainesville personal injury attorney, she can objectively deal with the issues.

In order to prove a personal injury case, the jury or judge will need to be convinced that the wrongdoer did not use reasonable care. You will also need to prove that the failure to use reasonable care resulted in your injuries.

Ms. Kerner will examine the nature of your injury, how it impairs your life, your pain and suffering, and the medical bills you incur.
