Automobile accidents involving animals

By: Admin

Auto accidents with animals in the Orlando, Orange County area are increasing. The State of Florida is one of the most unique states in the nation to offer many different types of wildlife. From the always talked about Florida alligator, all the way to the seldom heard of Florida panther, there are plenty of animals to disturb our roadways. Insurance companies handle car accidents involving animals in many different ways. This makes it very confusing for the driver to know exactly what is covered under their policy. While driving, it is in your best interest to avoid striking an animal, for the safety of the animal, as well as your own safety. If a driver swerves to avoid an animal in the roadway and strikes another vehicle, that driver may be held responsible for the accident. If a dog runs out into traffic and causes an accident, the owner of the dog can be held responsible.

It is helpful to have someone who is experienced in dealing with many different types of insurance policies to answer questions about who may be responsible for damages. The insurance companies may not give you the complete story about your rights and may prevent you from receiving the benefits you deserve.

I hired Al a few years ago for a workers compensation case. From the very beginning I found Al to be very knowledgeable and professional. He made sure I was aware of everything that was happening with my case from start to finish. His assistant (Melody) is also very professional and knowledgeable. I have and will continue to recommend friends and family members as I feel Al is one of the best attorneys in Florida and has exceeded my expectations.
