A Personal Injury Lawyer Now Protecting Your Rights

At Hector Hernandez & Associates, P.A. we can make a difference for you.

Many people who have been injured in accidents expect that, when all is said and done, insurance will come through and their injuries will cost them little, if anything, out of pocket. Soon, they recognize a growing imbalance between their insurance check and the bills coming in for ongoing medical needs and other losses.

If you have suffered a serious injury in an accident, you can’t count on the insurance company to step up and provide you with all the financial help you need. Regardless of the coverage you or anyone responsible for your injuries has, a for-profit insurance company will work to pay as little as possible for your claim.

At Hector Hernandez & Associates, P.A. our experienced personal injury attorneys:

  • Investigate your accident to determine exactly who should be held liable and gather ample evidence to support your claim.
  • Develop a full accounting of what you are owed, including economic and non-economic damages.
  • File all appropriate insurance claims, aggressively negotiating during settlement discussions and pursuing personal injury lawsuits if the insurance companies refuse to pay.

If you have suffered serious injuries, the insurance company may take the opportunity to make you sign a waiver of your rights before speaking with an attorney. Do not give a statement or agree to anything without contacting our experienced legal team.

After an accident that has caused serious injuries, it takes time to understand the true costs and losses you will suffer. This is another reason to be wary of quick personal injury settlement offers: They cannot be based on the true value of your losses.

As our attorneys develop your claim, we will take into account the costs of:

  •  Medical bills. All of your current medical expenses should be paid, including fees for emergency response, surgery, hospitalization, medication, doctor visits, physical therapy, psychological counseling for trauma, etc.
  • Future medical expenses. Costs for anticipated medical treatment and related needs must also be paid. This may include deferred treatment, such as reconstructive surgery; assistive devices, such as wheelchairs or prosthetics; recurring needs, such as medication or therapy; or anticipated needs, such as long-term residential care for someone with a degenerative injury.
  • Lost wages. Includes all unrealized income for time lost from work during recovery from an injury, including time off work for doctor’s appointments, physical therapy, etc.
  • Loss of future income. This is the expected loss of unrealized earnings if an injury causes a decrease in earning capacity. A proper calculation takes into account lost wages, as well as the value of fringe benefits and anticipated pay increases due to promotions or other career advancements that are not realized due to injury.
  • Pain and suffering. By law, you may also seek compensation for the physical pain, stress, emotional turmoil, lifestyle disruption and loss of enjoyment of life you have suffered due to the accident and your injuries.
  • Property loss or damage. This is anything you own that was damaged in the accident, particularly the cost to repair or replace a motor vehicle after a motor vehicle accident.

As you can see, some of these costs can be determined immediately, while others simply cannot. Our legal services include determining what you really deserve for your accident and injuries based on the evidence, and then pressing insurers in negotiations to obtain full payments. When insurers fail to do the right thing, we prepare and file personal injury lawsuits.

As the processes required in a lawsuit unfold and new evidence comes to light, we will prepare to prevail in court, but we will also continue to negotiate with insurers. It is possible to settle a personal injury lawsuit through negotiations at any time before a jury returns a verdict.
