Maximizing Recovery in Auto Cases
It is critical to have lawyers who know every angle to maximize the client’s recovery in an auto accident. So often, people are seriously injured only to find out that there in little or no liability coverage on the other side. Many lawyers will settle for the policy limits or just give up. Not at PDM. At PDM, we do not settle for what is revealed in the insurance declaration of the of the wrongdoer. While every case is different, our investigation often includes:
- Full evaluation of the accident and scene to determine if other actors or entities played a role in the accident.
- Expert reconstruction of the crash.
- Asset search of the defendant. Forcing the underinsured to pay more than the limits of their insurance coverage.
- Exploring all uninsured motorist coverage available, and forcing insurance companies to produce the required “UM” rejection forms.
- Finding out the full extent of coverage through state agencies in Tallahassee.
- Determining if the defendant was working or “on the clock” at the time.
- Tracking down and interviewing witnesses.
