No matter what time of the year it is, you need to be sure you understand your rights

TAMPA, Fla. – It’s the holiday season, and while no one likes to think about accidents during this time of celebration, that doesn’t mean accidents stop happening. No matter what time of the year it is, you need to be sure you understand your rights just in case the unthinkable happens and you’re involved in an accident.
The first right you have as an accident victim is to have an attorney review your case and handle the legal aspects so your side is fairly and accurately represented. At the Baird Law Group, we’re committed to helping our clients understand their rights, guiding them through the often complex and confusing legal system so they feel empowered, not further victimized.
You also have the right to have an attorney represent you in any legal proceeding arising from pursuit of your accident claim. Whether or not your case goes to court, you need to be sure your lawyer has the skills and experience in aggressively handling accident claims to help ensure you get all the compensation you’re legally owed. Our attorneys have successfully handled hundreds of cases like yours, and they also have access to significant resources which means your case will be built on solid evidence, ensuring it will be as strong as it can possibly be.
Finally, you have the right to have an attorney who provides you with the individual attention you deserve. Avoid firms that use cookie-cutter strategies to quickly settle your case regardless of whether or not it’s in your best interests to do so. The attorneys at the Baird Law Group value each client and build every case based on an accident’s unique circumstances.
Here’s another important fact to remember: You have the right to refuse to sign anything the insurance company or their attorneys present to you. In fact, to make sure you don’t sign away your rights, don’t sign anything without speaking to your own attorney. Why? It’s sad to say, but many businesses or insurance companies will try to convince you that your rights are limited or that their client is not responsible or only liable for a tiny fraction of charges and fees, simply in an effort to avoid paying the damages caused by their client’s negligence. Insurance companies or their attorneys might even ask you to sign a waiver or another document that significantly limits your right to collect damages that could be owed to you under the law.
If you’ve been the victim of an accident, we want to help you protect your rights and get the compensation you deserve. Contact the Baird Law Group today at 813-849-2679 or visit their website at to learn more.
