Automobile Accident and Auto Insurance Companies Claims!
William F. Gallese, P.A. Law Firm Stuart, Florida are legal professionals who focus on automobile accident and auto claims. We understand the emotional and financial impact of a serious injury, and the victims need for proper advise, attention, and compensation.
Serious motor vehicle collisions require the guidance of an experienced attorney. Insurance companies vigorously defend claims for money damages, and it helps to have someone who understands the process to be in your corner.
Many times, insurance companies give the public the impression that handling automobile accident claims is a simple matter that does not require the assistance of an attorney. While in some cases that may be true, insurance adjusters are trained to reduce the recoveries of people who are uneducated in handling these types of claims. One way to make sure that you get fair compensation for your injury, is for you to have an attorney who is well prepared and will fight for your rights. Otherwise, you may find yourself at a significant disadvantage in fairly resolving your claim.
Insurance companies often want to take a recorded statement of an unrepresented person so that they can obtain information that can be used against that person. The insurance company will down-play any damage done to the vehicles and may assert that there is no way that someone could sustain a personal injury based on such a “minimal” impact. The insurance company will often hire expert witnesses to testify that a person was not injured in a specific automobile collision. The bottom line is they may do everything they can to deny or delay paying on a particular claim. Our job is to work hard to prevent this from happening.

A traffic collision, also known as a traffic accident, motor vehicle collision, motor vehicle accident, car accident, automobile accident, Road Traffic Collision (RTC) or car crash, occurs when a vehicle collides with another vehicle, pedestrian, animal, road debris, or other stationary obstruction, such as a tree or utility pole. Traffic collisions may result in injury, death and property damage.
A number of factors contribute to the risk of collision including; vehicle design, speed of operation, road design, road environment, driver skill and/or impairment and driver behaviour. Worldwide motor vehicle collisions lead to death and disability as well as financial costs to both society and the individuals involved.
Many different terms are commonly used to describe vehicle collisions. The World Health Organization use the term road traffic injury, while the U.S. Census Bureau uses the term motor vehicle accidents (MVA) and Transport Canada uses the term “motor vehicle traffic collision”. Other terms that are commonly used include auto accident, car accident, car crash, car smash, car wreck, motor vehicle collision (MVC), personal injury collision (PIC), road accident, road traffic accident (RTA), road traffic collision (RTC), road traffic incident (RTI), road traffic accident and later road traffic collision, as well as more unofficial terms including smash-up and fender bender.
Some organizations have begun to avoid the term “accident”. Although auto collisions are rare in terms of the number of vehicles on the road and the distance they travel, addressing the contributing factors can reduce their likelihood. For example, proper signage can decrease driver error and thereby reduce crash frequency by a third or more. That is why these organizations prefer the term “collision” rather than “accident”.
