Types of Car Accident Cases
Millions of registered vehicles in Florida, a complex highway system, and the rise of distracting technology have all contributed to frequent car crashes. Many car accidents are attributed to driver error, and as personal injury accidents, the liable party is accused of negligence. We see accidents occur again and again due to many of the following hazards, many of which are preventable:
- Driving under the influence
- Distracted driving
- Drowsy driving
- Bad visibility
- Unsafe road conditions
- Vehicle maintenance issues
Unfortunately, carelessness and apathy behind the wheel lead to millions of injuries each year. If you’re one of the many who have sustained an injury, know that you’re not alone.

Recovering Financially After an Accident
Many people who suffer from an accident injury don’t bother contacting an attorney. Yet, you could be missing out on vital funds if you choose to pursue your claim without any professional input.
If you’ve received a settlement offer from an insurance company, don’t respond without first discussing your case for free with our lawyers. Your attorney will take on the responsibility of negotiating with insurance companies for a fair settlement so you can focus on getting better.
After many years of experience and as a former prosecutor, attorney Robert Baker brings valuable knowledge to your case that he can use to your advantage. Allow Robert Baker to investigate the facts of your accident and injuries, estimate all your current and future medical bills, calculate the value of any wages you may lose due to your injury, and more to determine a reasonable case value. At the very least, you shouldn’t negotiate with insurance companies until you know what your case is worth.
With an attorney representing you, you won’t have to sacrifice your time to fight for deserved compensation. Our job at Baker Legal Team is to provide you with peace of mind in knowing that your case is in the right hands.
What Kind of Compensation Can I Expect for My Accident?
When you team up with a competent, board-certified civil trial lawyer like Robert Baker, the goal is to win compensation that will make up for the hardships you’ve endured because of the crash. Typical losses for which you may be compensated include:
- Past, present, and future medical bills
- Lost wages
- Loss of future earnings
- Reduced work capacity
- Pain and suffering
- Mental anguish
- Loss of consortium
- And any other accident-related expense
In cases of gross negligence, it may be possible to win punitive damages in addition to the above compensatory damages. Punitive damages exist to punish the defendant in a personal injury case and also serve to deter the defendant and/or others from repeating the behavior that formed the basis for the lawsuit. The court decides whether to award punitive damages and, if so, how much the plaintiff should receive.

The longer you wait to get an attorney involved in your car accident case, the more difficult it might be to receive the compensation you need. That’s because you must act quickly for an attorney to start reviewing evidence, contacting insurance companies, and documenting your case. If you wait too long to take action, the insurance company on the hook for your settlement might not believe you truly need it. The more time your lawyer has to make a strong case, the more money it may be possible to recover.
