Comprehensive advice for all aspects of auto accident claims

If you’re involved in a legal dispute over an auto accident, Delesie & Rickert can assist with all aspects of your personal injury case. Those aspects may involve:

  • No-fault insurance — Florida is a no-fault insurance state, meaning that the first and possibly only compensation comes from your own insurer regardless of who is to blame for the accident.
  • Statute of limitations — In our state, a lawsuit must be filed within four years of the collision, but litigation can only commence if the injury is classified as serious under the state’s insurance laws.
  • Assessing negligence — The state’s comparative negligence rule allows either driver to obtain a recovery for damages even if they bear some or most of the responsibility for the collision. A verdict would be reduced by the percentage of fault the plaintiff is found to bear.

For an informed evaluation of these issues and others, Delesie & Rickert provides a free initial consultation.

Strategic counsel for the special issues arising from truck collisions

Litigating actions involving commercial truck crashes requires knowledge of the specific regulations that govern commercial vehicle operation and liability. Our attorneys will review each detail of the incident to assess whether rules on truck operation were violated. Evidence of unsafe speed, an overloaded vehicle, or lack of mandated driver rest can drastically change the course of a trial. We also advise clients regarding the legal exposure of drivers, fleet owners and the companies who use the trucks to ship their goods.

Effective legal support in wrongful death litigation

When someone is alleged to be at fault in another’s untimely death, the financial and emotional stakes are high. Awards for eligible family members can include compensation for decades of lost wages. With so much on the line, you need an experienced attorney who understands Florida laws on liability and damages. Delesie & Rickert can evaluate your case and its likelihood of success before you determine how to proceed.
