There are a variety of motor vehicle accidents including a personal injury that happens every day. Were you in a motor vehicle like a car, bus, van, truck, semi, 18-Wheeler, or motorcycle?
If you were in an accident with a semi on US Highway 19 or I-275, there could be a violation of Florida law that can result in punitive damages to your car accident claim. You need a Bradenton car accident attorney that can knowledgeably defend your rights under federal law.
If you sustained a personal injury such as brain damage, loss or impairment of limbs, burns and/or scarring, or disfigurement, you may have a personal injury case. Did you suffer a herniated disk or other impairment such as whiplash? Our Bradenton personal injury attorneys know just what to do to get the compensation you deserve.
Some of the most heart-wrenching cases include wrongful death and paralysis. If you or a loved one has suffered this unfortunate outcome after a car accident, setup a free consultation with our Bradenton car accident attorneys to discuss your options.
In the aftermath, there are so many things to consider. Was there property damage or personal injury? How do you address it? Florida is a no-fault insurance state when it comes to car accidents. What does this mean exactly?
In Manatee county, no-fault insurance means that your insurance company will pay some or all of your medical bills and lost earnings if you get into a car accident, regardless of whose fault it was for the incident. In Bradenton, all drivers are required to carry insurance that pays personal injury protection benefits.
You can submit a claim if you suffered a personal injury or if you have property damage to your vehicle more than $250.
An experienced personal injury attorney can help you get full compensation for your personal injuries sustained in the car accident. Attorneys get settlements on an average of 400% higher than people acting on their own.
To file a personal injury protection claim, you must seek medical treatment within 14 days after the car accident. If you consult with our Bradenton car accident attorneys first, we can help you seek treatment with a qualified provider.

Damages are divided into two categories: financial and non-financial. Your financial damages include:
Medical expenses: This includes the initial hospital visit, ambulance (if applicable), MRIs, CT scans, rehabilitative treatment, and more.
Future medical expenses: If rehabilitation is required, all future medical expenses sustained due to the treatment of your personal injury will be included.
Lost income or wages: If you have missed work due to your car accident, the quantifiable hours and salary lost will be reimbursed in the settlement.
Future lost wages: If you sustained a personal injury that is keeping you from working, these quantifiable wages would be included in the settlement.
Mileage reimbursement: Your Bradenton car accident attorney will argue that your travel to rehabilitation treatments should be covered in your compensation as well.
Non-financial damages include:
Pain and suffering: This includes the emotional and physical stress caused from the car accident.
Mental anguish: This includes fear, anger, sadness, and any other emotional responses that are a reaction to your car accident and keeps you from getting behind the wheel after a serious wreck.
Loss of consortium: When you have experienced trauma, it is often difficult to find the joy in life.
So, what will all of this cost you? In short, your time. When you hire Denmon Pearlman’s Bradenton car accident attorneys, there is no money required.
We take on cases based on contingency fees. The set rate is 33 ⅓% if we settle your case before filing a lawsuit. If a lawsuit is filed, the fee goes up to 40%. However, we only file a lawsuit if we know it will result in a significantly higher settlement for you.
You pay us nothing up front. Our fees will come out of the settlement. Get the compensation you need to cover the damages from your insurance company.
