HOW WE CAN HELP YOU:

  • Who do I recover from in a personal injury case?

    In most circumstances the recovery you will make will come from the at fault driver’s or at fault vehicle owner’s automobile insurance company.  There may be various levels of insurance coverage on the at fault parties.  The individual driver or vehicle owner typically will not pay out of pocket for the settlement or a lawyer to defend him or her.  However, if a lawsuit is filed against the at fault driver or vehicle owner there can be no mention of insurance and the actual individual driver and owner will be named as defendants in the case.  While we are not allowed to discuss insurance coverage at the trial, most juries understand how automobile insurance coverage works in Florida and understand that the monies being paid by the individual defendant really come from their insurance carrier.

  • Do I need a lawyer for my automobile accident case?

    In almost all circumstances a lawyer with our firm can substantially increase the recovery you will make as a result of an automobile collision including damages to your vehicle and personal injury bodily injury to yourself.  However, in some situations, with limited insurance coverage and the at fault driver or vehicle owner has no personal assets to recover, you may not need a lawyer to make full recovery.  If that is the case we will advise you on how to speak with the insurance carrier to collect all of the insurance coverage without incurring attorney’s fees and costs.

    However, under no circumstances should you sign any release before speaking with a lawyer about the case

    It is important to understand that there may be several different parties who are at fault or liable for your injuries.  There may be several different types or layers of insurance coverage available.  The at fault driver may have been on the job or performing some errand for someone else which makes them responsible as well.  The lawyers at Harris Guidi will investigate all these possibilities, provide you with all relevant information and help make the decision that is right for you in your individual situation.

    Oftentimes we find an employer or corporate defendant who has excess insurance coverage over and above the driver’s individual coverage.  That is not always disclosed to you by the insurance company.  Sometimes we find property and unencumbered personal assets of the at fault driver which can be converted to cash and recovered.  Of course there may be underinsured motorist coverages on your vehicle or another vehicle in your household if owned and insured by a relative.

    The best decision is to allow us to conduct our investigation, without obligation to you and provide you with the appropriate information to make the right decision on hiring a lawyer and pursuing the case.

  • If I am in an automobile accident can I take my car anywhere to be repaired and who pays for the repairs, my insurance or the at fault insurance carrier?

    Florida courts may or may not have jurisdiction to make decisions about alimony, custody, child support, equitable distribution and attorney’s fees.

  • My spouse and I want to divorce amicably, can we use one lawyer?

    Typically, the repairs to your vehicle will be paid by the at fault driver’s insurance carrier.  Alternatively, you may choose have your own insurance carrier pay the damages and they in turn will seek reimbursement (subrogation) from the at fault driver’s insurance carrier.  The same is true if your vehicle is considered a total loss.  One or the other of the insurance carriers will pay the “actual market value” of the car as it existed just prior to the collision and damage.

    You are also entitled to other property damages including loss of use, rental coverage and the diminished value of your vehicle as a result of the damage and repairs.  We can recover these for you.

    Contrary to what you may be told by the at fault insurance carrier, you have the choice of having your vehicle repaired at the shop of your choice.  The insurance companies often have claims offices and car rental services set up at certain large body shops with whom they do regular business.  While this may be convenient and appropriate, in some circumstances it may not be right for you.

    The attorneys at Harris Guidi are happy to talk with you and make recommendations regarding property damage repairs, total loss of your vehicle and other property loss recovery that you are entitled to make.

  • How long do I have to live in Florida before I can divorce?
