The Seriousness of Auto Accidents
Victims of crashes and those who lose family members know firsthand that a car accident can change your life forever. Drivers are expected to be careful behind the wheel and to follow safe driving rules. Unfortunately, far too many motorists take unnecessary chances or make unsafe choices. Motor vehicle accidents are a leading cause of serious injury and fatalities throughout the United States – particularly in Florida - and these collisions have a tremendous cost, both financially and emotionally.
A Family-Run Personal Injury Law Firm
Powell, Powell & Powell is a family-run law firm spanning three generations. Our family’s history of legal services goes back to our roots. Our family has had lawyers and judges for several generations in Okaloosa and Walton Counties. The Powell family is a strong believer in using the law to protect injured victims. That is why our firm only represents clients who have been harmed, not insurance companies. Since 1951, the auto accident attorneys at our firm have been passionate advocates helping to secure justice.
Our attorneys provide legal representation after you are hurt or a loved one is killed in any type of motor vehicle accident including:
In most cases, a driver is to blame for the accident and is the obvious defendant. For some claims, however, there may be multiple parties who are responsible for what has happened to you.
If a trucker causes you to crash due to his negligence, the trucking company may be to blame. If both unsafe driving and faulty car parts were causes or contributing factors to your accident, you may have a claim against both the driver and the car maker.
Our lawyers will carefully evaluate the circumstances of your injury and help you identify all defendants who may be liable for compensating you for losses.
Contacting Our Crestview Auto Accident Attorneys
Many car accident cases settle outside of court, and Powell, Powell & Powell is ready to negotiate on your behalf with the insurance company. The insurance company representing the driver who hurt you may offer you a settlement, but you should never accept until you have had a lawyer look it over. Insurers are not on your side and they may try to offer less than you are entitled to. Our team will negotiate with the insurer to help secure a reasonable settlement.
Although settling is common, we believe it is important to always be prepared to go to court. Our experienced litigators will work from day one with the assumption that we will have to prove your case to a judge or jury. We build evidence, oversee investigations, and interview witnesses. We take a team approach to preparing for your case and will keep you updated throughout the process. If your case goes to trial, we are ready to show the jury why you deserve justice.
Our car accident law firm offers a free consultation to crash victims, so if you are ready to take the first step toward moving on after your accident, call us today to learn more: 850-682-2757.
