Jacksonville Car Accident Attorneys
Automobile accidents are the number-one killer of Americans between the ages of three and 33.
Motor vehicle accidents cause serious physical, emotional and financial damage to their victims. The experienced Jacksonville auto accident attorneys at Farah & Farah can help. Significant verdicts and settlements we've secured for our clients include:
- A $1 million verdict for an elderly woman whose skull was broken when her mailman accidentally hit her with a mail truck. The insurance company handling the case refused to settle for a meaningful amount, saying her life expectancy was too short to justify more. We took them to court and convinced the jury that the insurer was wrong.
- A $1.2 million settlement on the eve of trial for a 35-year-old man who suffered spinal injuries when he was rear-ended by a careless driver going 45 miles per hour. The spinal injuries and the surgeries he needed as a result affected his performance at work, limiting his ability to earn a living. After two years of preparation, the defense caved and settled right before trial was to start.
- $1.25 million for the children of a man who died in a pickup truck rollover accident. He was asleep in the passenger seat when the driver, who was using a truck provided by his employer, crashed into a median and killed both of them. We negotiated a settlement of $1.25 million for the future educations of our client's four children.
- $760,000 for a man in his late 60s who lost his wife and was severely injured in a rear-end highway accident. The couple was driving at night down the highway when they crashed into a dump truck traveling below the prevailing speed of traffic with no taillights, headlights or other illumination. After three months in the hospital, the wife passed away, leaving more than $125,000 worth of medical bills. Persuaded by our research, the insurance company settled for $760,000.
At Farah & Farah, we've seen the devastating effect an auto accident can have on victims' futures.
Victims may need multiple surgeries, physical therapy or training to help them deal with a permanent disability. After an injury, victims may be temporarily or permanently out of work, even as medical bills and repair bills add up. Insurance companies may wrongly deny your claim in an effort to cut costs, even for customers who have faithfully paid premiums for years. Faced with money troubles, serious injuries and a big insurance company willing to twist the truth to save a few dollars, accident victims may feel that the deck is stacked against them.
It doesn't have to be that way. Farah & Farah is dedicated to helping auto accident victims in Florida get the money and medical treatment they need to recover -- personally and financially. We promise to aggressively represent you in negotiations with insurance, with the other driver, and in court, if necessary. Our Jacksonville car crash lawyers have years of experience in auto accident and personal injury law, so we understand the law on Florida auto accidents, the common tricks insurance companies use and how to get the best results under your unique circumstances.
