Presser Law, P.A. Has No Upfront Attorney Cost Or Fees As an injury lawyer or attorney in the Central Florida area for over 10 years, one of the more common inquiries I receive concerns payment to retain my services by injury victims.  It is not uncommon for an injury victim to worry about the cost of retaining an attorney or lawyer.  For many people, before they even seek out an injury lawyer all they know is that attorneys can be expensive many people simply cannot afford upfront costs of retaining an attorney to fight major insurance companies or corporations for the...

Facebook and Social Media Discoverability

Facebook and Social Media Discovery with injury lawyer

Facebook has been in the news lately, and not for a good reason.  Facebook made the news after it was learned a third party was able to access and record people’s information.  It seems Facebook, allegedly, failed to take proper precautions to guard against the copying of their users' information.  A lot of people are upset by this and understandably so.  When it comes to social media we post images, updates and comments on our page or to a group of our friends and believe there is some sense of privacy that comes with our account.  When it was revealed that third...

What is uninsured motorist coverage

Why Do I Need Uninsured Motorist Coverage As you already know from my prior blog, “Understanding the Full Coverage Myth,” Florida requires the average, non-commercial driver to carry only Personal Injury Protection and Property Damage coverage.  While both of these coverages can assist the coverage holder in different ways, neither of these coverages protects an injury victim from the physical injuries caused by someone else in a car accident. Bodily injury coverage is the name of the insurance which protects someone if they cause physical injuries to another in a car accident.  However, because this coverage is not currently required, many drivers...

What to do after a car accident by personal injury lawyer, Justin Presser

Low Speed Accidents Can Cause Injury Far too many people believe you cannot be injured in a low speed car accident.  Many times, people associate the amount of property damage to the vehicle with the type of injury the occupants must have had.  While the common misconception is the more significant the visible damage to the vehicle, the more significant injury to the occupant – this is not always correct.  An occupant’s age, medical history, force of impact and location within the vehicle are other factors which play a significant role in whether an injury can occur. In an article published by...

Understanding Florida’s “Full Coverage” Myth

Injury Law Myths

What Does Full Coverage In Florida Mean? Have you ever heard someone say that they are “fully insured” or have “full coverage” in regards to car insurance?  If you have, chances are the person who said that is not actually “fully insured” at all. In Florida, there are several types of different coverages available to drivers under their car insurance policies.  These coverages include Bodily Injury, Property Damage, Uninsured Motorist and Personal Injury Protection.  Each of these coverages insures something different.  Examples include Bodily Injury Coverage and Uninsured Motorist Coverage.  Bodily Injury Coverage insures an at-fault driver for injuries they cause to...
