Florida is one of the states with the most coastline in the United States. A lot of people take advantage of this to access the ocean and have watercraft for work or entertainment purposes. When there is an accident at sea it could be quite the stressful situation, far worse than an accident on land because frankly, you are in a lot more danger. On top of this many people do not know or understand how or even if they can make a claim after a watercraft accident.
Whether you were injured on a commercial watercraft (cruise ship, water crane, ferry, etc) or on a personal watercraft (privately owned boat, wave-runner, jet ski, inflatable being pulled by a boat) you should immediately find an attorney because these type of cases fall under several fields of law, some of which have different statute of limitations (an expiration date for a claim).
This is where we come in, here at Lolo Legal we will find the person who was at fault and if they have insurance. We will put this insurance company on notice that you are injured because of their insured and seeking treatment. We will also send letters to whatever treatment facilities you require to get you back to 100% health and let them know that you have a pending suit, so they will not charge you until after you receive your settlement.
Once your treatment is complete we will compile all your medical records and send them to the at faults person insurance along with a letter called a “Demand Letter”. A demand letter is basically a letter stating what your damages are (including medical bills, pain, and suffering, etc.) and asking for the insurance to reimburse you for those damages. We will then go back and forth with the insurance company until they pay you an adequate amount you agree with. If the insurance company does not come up with a number that is adequate then the process will move to the courts.
At no point will you have to pay anything out of your own pocket, and we will not make any money unless you do. These type of cases are all handled on a standard contingency fee which most if not all attorneys of this type use. Because of this, we suggest you shop around different lawyers/law firms and see which is best for you.
At Lolo Legal, you will get transparency and 24/7 access to an attorney which larger firms cannot provide. But most importantly to us and our customers is that we are down to earth regular people. We will talk to you like a normal person and not try to confuse you with legalese. But really the best way to see what we are about is to come and visit us so call/text/email us today to schedule your free consultation.
