At The Law Offices of David M. Benenfeld P.A., we provide experienced legal representation for auto accident victims throughout Florida. If you or the driver who hit you is insured through USAA, we can help make sure you get the compensation you deserve.
After an auto accident, one of the most frustrating things you will have to deal with is the insurance claim process. You know you have a claim, and you know you need to contact your insurance company, but, after that… How do you make sure the insurance company doesn’t take advantage of you? How do you make sure you recover the compensation you deserve?
Our attorneys have decades of experience representing auto accident victims and their families throughout Florida. We regularly handle claims with the major insurance companies, including USAA, and we understand what it is like to be in your situation. Whether you are insured by USAA or the driver who hit you has USAA auto insurance, we can help make sure you receive just compensation for your past and future medical bills, lost income, and other losses.
Types of USAA Auto Accident Claims We Handle
Car accidents happen in the blink of an eye. One moment everything is normal, and the next you are left to pick up the pieces from someone else’s mistake. At The Law Offices of David M. Benenfeld P.A., we regularly represent clients who have been injured in collisions involving:
- Blind Spot and Merging Accidents
- Crossing Double Yellow Lines
- Distracted Driving (including Cell Phone Accidents)
- Drunk Driving
- Fatigued Driving and Falling Asleep Behind the Wheel
- Lane-Changing Accidents
- Reckless Driving
- Running Red Lights and Stop Signs
- Traffic Violations
- Other Accident Causes
In most cases, you will need to deal with USAA if the driver who hit you is a USAA member. However, if you were injured in a hit-and-run accident and you have USAA auto insurance, then you will need to deal with USAA for your uninsured/underinsured motorist claim. Regardless of the situation you are facing, our attorneys have been there before, and we can handle your insurance claim for you while you focus on your physical and emotional recovery.
Compensation Available Through USAA Auto Insurance Claims
Why should you hire an attorney to handle your insurance claim? There are several reasons, but one of the most important is that your losses could be far greater than you realize. If you have been injured in an accident in which someone insured by USAA is to blame, you are entitled to financial compensation for:
- Past and Future Medical Bills
- Any Other Accident-Related Expenses
- Past and Future Loss of Income
- Pain and Suffering
- Scarring and Disfigurement
- Loss of Support, Consortium, and Enjoyment of Life
Of course, when your insurance adjuster makes a settlement offer, he or she will not tell you that these are your rights. You also will not be told that the offer is negotiable, or that you have the right to speak with an attorney before you make a decision that could affect your life for years to come.
Florida Car Accident FAQs
Q: Do I really need an attorney to handle my USAA auto insurance claim?
While you are legally permitted to handle your claim on your own, hiring an experienced attorney is the only way to make sure that you do not settle for less than full and fair compensation. When you file a claim, USAA is not on your side, and you adjuster is getting paid to settle your claim for as little as possible.
Q: Isn’t it expensive to hire an attorney?
Hiring The Law Offices of David M. Benenfeld P.A. costs you nothing out of pocket, and we only collect a percentage of your settlement or court verdict if we win your case. Even with our contingency fee, the amount you take home is likely to far exceed any settlement offer you may receive without legal representation.
Q: What happens when I hire a lawyer to handle my claim?
When you hire our attorneys, we will deal with USAA on your behalf. You will not have to worry about getting calls from your adjuster, and you will not have to worry about settling for less than you deserve. If USAA makes a settlement offer, we will discuss your options with you and help you decide whether to accept, push for more, or take your claim to trial.
