Sarasota Car Accident Lawyers

Sarasota Car Accident Lawyers
With year-round tourism and an influx of winter residents, motor vehicle accidents in Sarasota are inevitable. In fact, Sarasota has averaged over 5,000 car accidents for the last three years, a 23% increase from the previous three-year average. These crashes have resulted in hundreds of wrongful deaths and thousands of serious injuries, which were not the fault of the victims.

It’s far too common for seriously injured accident victims to face continual pain, substantial medical costs, lost wages and thousands of dollars in property damage. If you find yourself in such a situation, it’s important to protect your legal rights by contacting a skilled personal injury attorney as quickly as reasonably possible. Don’t make the mistake of letting the insurance companies, including your own, take advantage of you or your situation.

Lutz, Bobo & Telfair, P.A. are the Sarasota accident attorneys who can help. We can negotiate with the insurance companies, to make sure you receive the full value of compensation for your accident claim. Our law firm handles all automobile accident cases on a contingency fee basis. This means you owe no attorney’s fees unless we win your case. To find out what your accident case is worth, contact us today for your free case review.

Do I need a Sarasota Accident Attorney?

Let’s face reality, insurance companies and opposing attorneys are more interested in protecting their interests then they are in protecting the rights of innocent accident victims. Any statements you make to insurance adjusters or opposing attorneys will be recorded and most likely admissible in court. They will use your statements or actions to reduce the value of your claim. Auto insurance companies aren’t calling to help you, they’re trying to hurt you and your claim. Only an experienced injury attorney will know how to deal with the complexity of the insurance company’s tactics and protect your best interests.

Additionally, the value of your motor vehicle accident claim will rely heavily on the evidence collected and how that evidence is presented to the insurance adjusters or a trial jury. Very few people, outside of skilled injury lawyers, will have the financial resources needed or the knowledge required to collect, preserve and present such evidence. Don’t risk the value of your accident claim or leave your financial future to insurance adjusters. If you’ve been seriously injured in an accident, you’ll need sound legal representation.

How Much Do Car Accident Cases Cost?

Our injury law firm handles all car accident cases on a contingency fee basis. This means we only charge attorney’s fees if we settle your claim with the insurance company or win a favorable court ordered verdict. If we settle your claim or win a favorable trial verdict, our attorneys would receive a percentage of the settlement or verdict amount. The percentage we charge varies, based upon the facts and circumstances of your car accident claim.

If you’ve been seriously injured or are the spouse of someone killed in a car accident, we invite you to contact our experienced attorneys today for a free case review.

Reasons for Filing an Auto Accident Lawsuit

In the event of an auto accident, the at-fault party is responsible for all damages. In the event of a crash in which both parties are at fault, the party deemed to have been primarily responsible is liable for damages proportionate to his or her share of fault. Our Sarasota attorneys can review your case and help determine which party is at fault. Any of the following common causes of motor vehicle accidents may be grounds for filing a personal injury lawsuit:

  • Distracted Driving
  • Speeding
  • Drunk Driving
  • Aggressive Driving
  • Road Rage
  • Running Red Lights
  • Running Stop Signs
  • Failure to Yield
  • Improper Lane Changes
  • Tailgating
  • Wrong Way Driving
  • Driver Fatigue
  • Automobile Defects
  • Road Defects

THE HIRING OF A LAWYER IS AN IMPORTANT DECISION THAT SHOULD NOT BE BASED SOLELY ON ADVERTISEMENTS.

Before you decide to hire a lawyer, ask us to send you no cost written information about our qualifications and experience, with no obligation to you. If a legal matter arises, please feel free to contact us We may be able to help.

I really didn’t know what to do after my daughter was involved in a car accident. The circumstances were just ridiculous leaving her with auto and medical issues. She contacted and met with Mr. Telfair, he guided her and is actively taking control of the legal issues which are difficult to control. As a father I was helpless, never had to use a lawyer before. My daughter was treated with compassion, Mr Telfair’s office was very professional. Thank you very much.

Charles Telfair is a great lawyer and wonderful person. I had a rather costly dispute with my old apartment complex, and needed a good lawyer. I received a reference for Charles and he took my case and resolved it in a very short period of time. I will definitely be using his services in my future legal issues!

Charlie Telfair handled a simple case for me and resolved my issue quickly. Even though he has a large office downtown, he treated my case like it was his biggest case. I recommended 2 other friends to him and they won their cases as well.
