Fighting Insurance Companies
Insurance companies throughout Florida do everything they can to reduce their settlement expenses. Automobile, motorcycle, and truck insurance companies are known for attempting to settle claims quickly and cheaply. Insurance adjusters typically ask victims for a statement within hours of an accident, while the victims are still shaken or receiving medical care. The goals of many insurance companies are to delay, deny and defend claims. You need an auto accident lawyer warrior on your side who will outwork the insurance company lawyers.

With our years of experience fighting insurance companies, Van Riper & Nies has what it takes to get you the compensation you deserve.

If you have hired an auto accident law firm after a crash, but have only met with a firm “investigator,” beware. This is usually just a runner or a legal assistant whose sole job it is to sign you up. You may wish to seriously think about hiring a law firm that actually gives you complete access to your accident lawyer, not an assistant. You need a legal warrior on your side from day one. All our clients have our attorneys’ cellular phone numbers.
Our Florida auto accident law attorneys, known for their hands-on litigation style, will tenaciously and personally pursue compensation for your harms and losses. Our accident attorneys (not paralegals or legal assistants) will visit the crash scene within hours of being retained by accident victims. Once there, the attorneys carefully inspect, examine, and photograph the vehicles involved in the crash; obtain the police investigation report; and speak with witnesses. If the scene has already been cleaned up, the same attention to detail is executed in reviewing photographs, records, and witness accounts. From rear-end collisions and front-end collisions to drunk driving caused crashes, our trial attorneys are known for leaving no stone unturned and for being legal warriors for our clients in settlement negotiations, mediations and jury trials. Our attorney Tim Nies, also represents private military contractors injured in truck and auto accidents overseas while working, in Defense Base Act claims.
Here at Van Riper & Nies, our auto accident law attorneys meet personally with each client, refusing to employ runners or “investigators” to do our job. This ensures the best possible collection of evidence and eventual outcome in court, and it’s only the beginning of the personalized attention your case will receive at our law firm.
