Car Accident Injuries in Panama City
Car accidents and their resulting injuries can leave victims with extensive medical costs, lost wages, personal property damages, and, often, significant pain and suffering. While some injuries can heal with adequate medical attention and rest, others can have life-altering consequences. Expenses from these serious injuries often goes well beyond what an individual’s PIP insurance covers.
If you have been injured in a serious car accident, you may be able to sue the at-fault party for your damages. Even if you are partially at fault for the accident, under our comparative negligence rules, you may still be able to collect some compensation from the other party.
If you have been injured in a car accident, contact our Panama City car accident lawyers at Ged Lawyers, LLP to understand your legal rights.
Truck Accident Injuries
If you have been injured in a truck accident, you may have many avenues to seek compensation. However, as one of the most highly-regulated industries in the United States, truck accident claims can be incredibly complicated.
If you have been injured in an accident involving a large commercial vehicle, our experienced Panama City truck accident lawyers may be able to recover compensation for your injuries from one or multiple parties.
Premises Liability Injuries
If you or someone you love has been injured on someone else’s property due to a hazardous condition, you may be entitled to compensation for your injuries.
Whether it is private property, commercial property, or even public property, property owners are legally responsible for keeping it safe for anyone who is legally using it. If you or a loved one has been injured due to a property owner’s negligence, our Panama City premises liability lawyers may be able to help recover financial compensation for your damages.
Wrongful Death Lawsuits
Losing a loved one because of someone else’s negligence or intentional action is one of the worst kinds of heartbreak for a family. Whether that death was caused by an automobile accident, medical malpractice, or nursing home negligence, the family is left with the financial and emotional aftermath.
A wrongful death claim, while not making up for the death of a family member, will help offset some of these financial and emotional costs. Let the Panama City wrongful death attorneys at Ged Lawyers, LLP help you get compensated for your losses.
PIP Insurance Claims in Panama City
As a no-fault insurance state, personal injury protection insurance is designed to give accident victims easier access to benefits after a car accident regardless of fault. And while many times these benefits work exactly as they are intended, there are times when injury victims are left to fight with their own insurance carrier to get the benefits they are entitled to.
When your insurance fails to pay fair benefits for your injuries, the Panama City PIP insurance attorneys at Ged Lawyers, LLP can help you get the benefits you are due under the terms of your policy. We have recovered millions of dollars in PIP insurance claims for accident victims throughout Florida.
Auto Glass Claims
In Florida, any registered vehicle owner with comprehensive insurance coverage is entitled to get their windshield repaired or replaced at no cost to them, including a deductible. This is very convenient for car owners. But for the shops doing the repairs, they have often struggled to get fairly paid for work done under these insurance claims.
The insurance industry has contracted with high volume auto glass repair companies that can offer their services at a vast discount considering the volume. Consequently, large insurance companies have refused to pay small repair shops what is considered in the industry as fair repair costs for their work. This isn’t right.
If you are a small repair shop in Panama City that has struggled getting paid fairly for the windshield work you have done under an insurance claim, the Panama City auto glass claims attorneys at Ged Lawyers, LLP may be able to help. Contact us to see what your rights are under the law.
Property Damage Insurance Claims
While most of us diligently pay our premiums each month so we can have peace of mind should there be an emergency, many find themselves battling the insurance company that is supposed to be there for them when that emergency happens.
If you have sustained property damage and your insurance company has denied or undervalued your claim, you may have legal recourse. Contact our skilled Panama City property damage lawyers at Ged Lawyers, LLP to see how we may be able to help you get the insurance settlement you deserve for your damages.
Defective Product and Mass Tort Claims
When you have been harmed by a consumer product, prescription medication, medical procedure, or other product, you may be able to hold the manufacturer that produced it liable for your injuries and other damages. Product liability laws hold companies legally responsible for the safety of the products that they produce and sell. Unfortunately, many of these unsafe products still make their way to the marketplace and can cause serious injury and even death.
If you have been injured by a product or procedure, you may be able to bring a product liability claim against the manufacturer or enter into a mass tort if you are one of many who have been injured by the same product. At Ged Lawyers, LLP, our team of Panama City product liability attorneys can discuss your rights and potentially help you get compensated for your injuries.
None of us escapes death, but few of us want to think about it. We never know when death or incapacity may strike, however, and if we haven’t protected ourselves and our assets, it can have an unfortunate effect not only on our own future but that of our loved ones.
At Ged Lawyers, LLP, our Panama City estate planning lawyers can develop a comprehensive estate plan to ensure that your assets are protected, and your wishes are considered in the event of death or incapacity. From a simple will and advanced directive to a more complicated trust, you can have peace of mind knowing that you have provided for your own future and that of the ones you love.
In Florida, we are no strangers to natural disasters and their associated insurance claims. While most of us hope to never have to use these insurance policies, many of us also don’t understand the nuances of our coverage in detail. Unfortunately, property and casualty policies can be extremely complicated and the technical terminology surrounding your coverage can lead to significant disagreements over coverage after a claim has been filed.

Let us help you if you are struggling to get a fair settlement from your insurance company after a disaster.
