Jessica J. Travis can help. 

If you or a loved one are injured by another driver, you have the right to consult with an attorney before accepting a settlement.   

Florida’s ‘No Fault’ law means that the driver’s insurance company will cover medical bills and lost wages up to a certain limit regardless of who was at fault.  If loss exceeds the limit, the injured party may recover additional money if:  1) The other driver was at fault and carries insurance, and/ or 2) The injured driver carries Uninsured/ Underinsured motorist (UM) coverage.   

Our area is dangerous for drivers and pedestrians:
