Potential Damages From Auto Accidents: What Can You Claim?

If you are injured in an accident where it was not your fault, you are entitled to recover the reasonable value of your medical bills, for lost wages , and the reasonable value for pain-and-suffering you endured as a result of your injuries. Regardless of what you may read on the Internet, there is no formula for calculating this value. Please note, each case is unique and determining what your case is worth takes experience, thus you should consult with an attorney at Brannon & Brannon.

Why Is My Insurance Paying For My Medical Expenses?

In order to register your Florida automobile, you must meet minimal insurance requirements. The requirements are as follows: (1) $10,000.00 of Personal Injury Protection ("PIP") and (2) $10,000 of property damage liability.

Health Care Providers & Auto Accidents: Who Will Treat Your Injuries?

Being involved in a personal injury car accident is scary. Although you may think your injuries aren't very serious, seek an evaluation from a health care provider as soon as possible. Symptoms such as pain, discomfort, dizziness or numbness can appear days after the accident:

Hit And Run Accidents Are On The Rise

According to the Northwest Florida Daily News, a Baker man accused of a string of hit-and-runs is charged with five counts of second-degree aggravated battery with a deadly weapon, This gentleman from Baker is 30 years old and is also charged with second-degree abuse of an elderly or disabled adult without great harm and second-degree fleeing with disregard of safety to people or property. Earlier this week, the OCSO received a complaint about a green Chevrolet truck traveling north on State Road 85 that was involved in at least two hit-and-run incidents and approaching Crestview. An OCSO deputy responding to the complaint reported seeing a vehicle matching the Chevy's description as it struck the rear end of a Honda Civic just north of the S.R. 85-PJ Adams Parkway intersection, "causing the Honda to fishtail and travel into the median," an arrest report states. The Chevy then closely followed a Dodge Ram truck, whose driver swerved into the median; the Chevy swerved too and struck the Dodge truck's rear end, according to the arrest report. The 30 year old man, along with his passenger, a 76-year-old woman, eventually crossed the S.R. 85-Rasberry Road intersection, speeding approximately 65 mph in the 45 mph zone, according to the arrest report. It U-turned south in front of Dunkin' Donuts and turned into the Captain D's parking lot, where it stopped.

Safety Alert: New Regulations To Drones

We all knew this was coming. Recently, the Secretary of Transportation announced that all unmanned aircraft would be required to be registered with the government just as manned aircraft are today. We have watched drones fly around concerts, parties, school assemblies and know that many of these individuals have no idea how to fly them, and it is just a matter of time before someone gets significantly hurt. According to Secretary Fox, drone registration will help ensure that drone operators are educated on airspace issues and help enforce accountability by knowing who is flying, There will be a task force consisting of government leaders and diverse stakeholders who will determine the specifics of which drones will be covered - for example, toy drones could be excluded - and how the registration process will work.

Avoiding Car Crashes At Dangerous Intersections

According to the Pensacola News Journal, an empty school bus was involved in a wreck early last Tuesday morning at the intersection of U.S. 29 and Detroit Boulevard. About 7:30., a.m., a Pontiac Vibe driven by an 81 year old male from Pace was traveling westbound on West Detroit Blvd. A school bus driven by a 67 year old male was traveling northbound in the inside lane on U.S. 29. The bus' front right side collided with the Vibe's front left side, according to the report. There were no children on the bus at the time of the wreck. Charges are pending at the conclusion of the investigation.

Understanding Your Insurance Policy

Rarely does anyone (even those who sell insurance) try to read an entire policy? Most look at individual parts of the coverage, endorsements or the declaration page to seek answers or research a problem. Regardless, you should read and understand certain parts of your insurance coverage(whether it is auto insurance or homeowners) from the start, and it's a good idea to know how to read the rest of the policy in case you suffer a loss and need to make a claim. Your ability to read and understand your policy helps you to know, work and negotiate with whomever and hopefully avoid the trap of depending on coverage interpretations from others.

Pedestrian Safety

A tragic accident occurred this past week in Panama City Beach. A pair of Panama City Beach teenagers were hit by a truck while walking. It happened last Wednesday evening on Alf Coleman Road near the intersection of Back Beach Road. Specifically, a 16-year-old and 15-year-old were walking with their backs to oncoming traffic. A Chevy Silverado truck driven by a 37-year-old male hit them. Officials say the teens were not wearing any reflective clothing.
