Out of State Car Accident in Orlando

Injured in an Out-of-State Car Accident? Call TK Law

Out of State Car Accident

You are a non-Florida resident vacationing here in Orlando. Out of nowhere, a vehicle broadsides you, injuring you and your passengers and totaling your car. What do you do? Any wreck is troubling, but an out-of-state car accident adds a new level of worry and strain.

You are not alone – the experienced attorneys at TK Law are here to help. You may not reside in Florida, but you can count on our attorneys to provide personal, proficient attention to your case from the start.

We work to ease the shock and fears that plague out-of-state visitors who suddenly find themselves suffering and their world upended by another motorist’s negligence.

Anyone hurt in car or truck accident far from home has extra burdens and frustrations to deal with:

  • How does insurance work in a Florida car crash?
  • What happens if the other driver does not have enough insurance to compensate your injuries?
  • You got caught in the middle of a pileup with several vehicles involved. Who’s liable?
  • You were severely injured while evading a collision with a swerving truck. Will you be compensated?
  • Injured loved ones are now in the hospital – who is going to pay those medical bills?
  • Should you call a local lawyer for help? Which one?

If you are an out-of-state traveler with these or similar troubles and questions, contact us immediately: 1-407-834-4847.

The Importance of a Qualified, Local Attorney in an Out-of-State Car Accident

When you or family members are seriously hurt because of another driver’s reckless or wrongful actions, you may be able to recover damages in a personal injury claim.

In a free consultation with our Orlando law firm, we can help you understand your options and advise you on your situation.

Insurance coverage and determining negligence of all parties to the accident are complex dealings and have a bearing on the value of your case. We will investigate the facts surrounding your accident and develop the steps we must take to get you the compensation you deserve.

Our lawyers negotiate with insurance adjusters to ensure a fair settlement.

If we see you’re being low-balled by the insurance carrier or at-fault driver, we are ready to file a personal injury lawsuit on your behalf when it is in your best interest to do so.

Learn how we can help you today. You will never owe us any attorney’s fees unless we recover for you. Our firm has locations in Orlando and Altamonte Springs, just off 1-4, a major traffic corridor that sees its share of collisions.

What to Do when You Suffer Injuries on Florida’s Roads (but Live in another State)

The questions below are commonly asked by out-of-state clients. The information is general; for specific help, we welcome your call.

Q:   What state laws govern out-of-state car accidents in Florida?

A:    Florida laws apply. Whether your home is Texas or Georgia, if you are driving a vehicle or are a passenger on Florida roads and are involved in an accident, Florida motor vehicle laws will be observed.

If you are injured and pursue a personal injury claim, Florida statutes govern the way in which you may prosecute the claim and the type of damages you can recover.

Q:   What about insurance claims? Are Florida’s motor vehicle insurance laws different from your home state’s laws?

A:    Because thousands of motorists cross state lines daily, insurance policies interact with different state laws. Although the accident occurred away from your home state, you will still file an insurance claim under your policy, and you should (generally) still be covered under the terms of your insurance policy.

If you were injured, you would notify your insurance company (a first party claim) or the insurer of the at-fault party (a third party claim) to inform that you were involved in an out-of-state car accident and suffered injuries. Other situations may also need action such as injuries to passengers, or injuries sustained as a pedestrian.

Q:   Can you hire a Florida attorney to help you, when you do not live in Florida?

A:    Yes. The attorney you hire to represent you in an out-of-state injury case in Florida must be licensed to practice in our state by the Florida Bar.

It is to your benefit to work with Orlando area attorneys who are (1) versed in non-resident motorist accident litigation, and (2) on familiar ground with local civil courts and judges.

Our knowledge of Florida’s claim resolution process can help you avoid mistakes that devalue your claim. If you arrived from out of state and were injured by a negligent driver anywhere in the Orlando area, TK Law will protect your interests locally to preserve the full value of your accident claim.

Q:   If you are seriously injured and may be entitled to compensation – where and how do you file a lawsuit?

A:    Any legal action taken against the at-fault driver or other party is under Florida jurisdiction. Your lawsuit would be filed and tried in Florida.

Florida laws base car accident liability on the negligence standard. The at-fault party (or parties) can be held liable, and it is up to you to prove whose negligence caused the accident.

Out-of-state vacationers and business travelers who suffer accident injuries in and around metro Orlando may encounter various legal complications, including crashes involving commercial trucks and semis, and multi-vehicle car collisions involving motorists from multiple states.

Should your case involve a personal injury lawsuit, you want an area lawyer with considerable experience handling Orlando car accident cases, complex motorist insurance negotiations, and personal injury case litigation.

TK Law is the nearby law firm you can trust.

No attorney will work harder to protect your rights. Our legal team can assess the cause of the accident and calculate and predict all possible damages to ensure that you receive proper compensation.

Distance is no obstacle. After you are home and healing, we remain available to you. We efficiently communicate with you via email, fax, and telephone.

There is hope, and it is just a phone call or email away. Contact us as soon as possible so we can begin helping you.
