You Deserve Full Justice
Following an accident, it is common to feel like you are alone and helpless but you should be aware that our Orlando bus accident lawyers are going to fight for you to receive the justice that you deserve. We know that it can feel like you are at the mercy of other people after you’ve been hurt and it’s not fair that you’ve had to go through this. Justice is needed and we are committed to bringing you justice. There are several things that you should know about your justice.
First you should know that the justice you seek is going to be by means of financial compensation from the liable party’s insurance company. They are financially responsible to cover your damages and injuries related to the accident.
Do You Need Legal Help?
We need to know what your maximum medical recovery is going to be in order to know what your compensation award will look like. Your maximum medical recovery could be a return to full health after several months or I could be getting as good as you can possibly get but never being able to return to full health because you have permanent damage. This is important information and if a lawyer tells you that they can guarantee a certain amount of money for your award without knowing what your maximum medical recovery would be you should probably turn away from that lawyer and find someone who’s going to look at the facts before they give you any promises.
Cases are valued based on your economic and non-economic damages.
Noneconomic damages can be categorized as financial loss related to your bus accident. This could be medical expenses such as the ambulance ride and ER visits as well as any follow up care needed related to this bus accident. It may also be lost wages for missed time at work
Your non-economic damages are going to be the way that your life has been negatively affected by this bus accident such as depression and anxiety related to the trauma of the bus accident. It also includes your past and future pain and suffering. Non-economic damages are more difficult to calculate because they don’t deal with numbers but they deal in life quality. They are none the less important.
Act with Urgency
Florida State law allows you for years from the date of your accident in which you can file your civil case against the liable party for your bus accident. This is called your statute of limitations and if you let these four years slip by without filing a claim then you can lose out on justice because he will be barred from filing a case. We know that life can be hectic and busy and something like this could slip off of your radar but we strongly encourage you to keep it in the forefront of your mind because it would be seriously tragic for you to lose out on justice because you forgot you should file a claim.
Our Orlando bus accident lawyers want to hear from you right away also because there is going to be a lot of evidence that is available to us immediately after the accident and the longer you wait to reach out to us the harder it is for us to get a hold of that evidence.
Your witnesses could forget what they saw overtime, CCTV footage From nearby businesses could be recorded over or deleted if they didn’t know that we needed it and all the evidence at the scene of the bus accident would likely be completely missing if you waited a prolonged period of time to reach out to us. It makes it harder for us to create a strong foundation for your case when so much time has lapsed.
The sooner you reach out to our office to set up a free consultation the better off you will likely be.
We also want you to act with the same urgency to take care of yourself. We know sometimes with minor to moderate injuries we can tend to brush it off and try to ignore the pain and continue with our daily tasks. This is a huge mistake for several reasons. You could make your minor to moderate injury severe and you can also make it a permanent injury if you don’t take care of it right away. you want to get that treatment as soon as you can possibly get it so you prevent further damage down the line. You also don’t want to raise the suspicions of the insurance company who is already looking for reasons to throw out your case. If there was a significant gap in time between your accident and your medical attention, they could say that you lied about where you were hurt or even how severely you were hurt. Both of these things could be detrimental to the success of your case.
Things That Can Ruin Your Results
When you file a claim it’s important to know that we are going to be seeking a financial reward from the insurance company who represents the liable party. You also need to understand these insurance companies are out to protect their bottom line and continue to make profits so paying you what you deserve is not in their best interest. Our Orlando bus accident lawyers will push them to provide you with full compensation but the insurance company is well aware of Florida’s pure comparative negligence laws.
When we file this claim the insurance company is immediately going to be on the defense trying to prove that you had something to do with causing the accident because they know if they can blame you for some portion of this accident they can reduce what they owe you. If they were able to blame entirely on you, they could throw away your case. If they were successful in blaming you for a portion of the accident, however, even if it was just 20% of the accident, then they can keep that 20% of compensation from you leaving you with 80% of your total award. It is our job to protect you from this happening and a big way for us to ensure you are protected from them is to know that you did not give them a recorded statement. They are going to reach out to you very shortly after your accident to try to get a recorded statement from you.
Even if they ask you something that seems completely innocuous such as “how are you”, you may answer in a way that could be twisted. If you said that you were doing OK, then they could say that when they asked how you were after the accident you were fine. They can twist that to mean that they don’t need to give you the compensation you’re asking for because you were fine.
We hope to avoid tragic things like losing out on compensation because he didn’t know better. You need to let your Orlando bus accident lawyers talk to the insurance company on your behalf so that your rights are protected. These bus companies can be quite large and have very talented layers on their sides protecting them. We are up for that challenge because we know that you deserve to have your rights fully protected from these greedy people who just want to make a profit.
We don’t put up with insurance companies trying to short you from what you deserve to have. You are important to us and we fight for you like we fight for our own families. You could always rest assured that we are ready for any obstacles in our way even if it means we have to go all the way to trial because we cannot negotiate a fair outcome with the insurance company.

“In October 2015, My husband was a passenger in a horrible car accident and was hospitalized for two months. After being in ICU for a little over a month , I reached out to Mr. Corzo and He met me in the hospital a day after. Since my husband was still unconscious and in ICU I decided to hire Mr.Corzo for Davids personal injury and workers compensation case. From the moment I met Mr.Corzo he was very emphatic and attentive to all my questions and concerns. Anytime I would email him with a question he would get back to me right away. I would even email/text his paralegal Denise after hours if I had any questions and she would get back to me within a hour. Mr. Corzo made sure he fully explained and went over everything with us before we made any decisions. Mr. Corzo went out of his way to make sure David was taken care of. After my husband was released from the hospital, Mr. Corzo called and checked up on David and made sure he was getting the care he needed. I truly believe Mr. Corzo went above and beyond for my husband in winning both cases. We are extremely blessed with the outcome and would highly recommend him to anyone that may need a lawyer. Due to my husbands injuries we will need to apply for disability, Mr.Corzo offered to help us fill out the paper work and make sure everything is done correctly. We can’t THANK him enough for all that he has done for our family. #Thankful”
