The team of auto accident attorneys at Doran, Beam and Farrell will examine the facts of an auto accident case in order to determine whether your potential damage claim is valid.

Here is a brief list of the kinds of auto accidents we can handle for you:
Whether you were a victim of a drunk driver or were behind the wheel of a defective car that caused a rollover accident, our expert team will help you determine the facts of your case as well as whether or not it would hold up in court.
Many of the semi-trailers that you see on highways are engaged in interstate commerce. On that basis, they are required to register with the Federal Motor Carrier Administration and U.S. Department of Transportation.
Because of the devastation these massive vehicles can cause, their owners and operators are subject to more extensive regulations than ordinary motorists. Regulations include, but are not limited to maintenance and periodic inspections, commercial driver’s licenses, hours of service rules, maintaining log books and even truck “black box” rules.
Due to the severe damage that a large truck can cause, the minimum insurance coverage that they are required to be covered with is exponentially higher than that of a passenger vehicle. Most big rig policies exceed $1 million of coverage. When accidents occur, claims are assigned only to the insurers’ top adjusters. Their strategies are to attempt to shift some or all of the fault for the accident over onto victims in order to devalue or even deny claims in their entirety. If a crash was clearly the fault of the truck driver, and the victim has not retained a personal injury lawyer, a “top dollar” settlement offer might be made in order to induce the victim to go away early. Do not become a victim twice. Retain experienced Auto Accident Lawyers from the onset of your claim.
Economic and non-economic damages in these types of cases typically consist of medical bills, lost earnings or diminished earning capacity, any permanent disfigurement or disability, pain and suffering and loss of enjoyment of a normal life. Do not try to represent yourself in a case against a truck driver or trucking company, and never give a statement of any kind to the opposing insurer without an attorney being present. The law does not require you to give that statement, and your own words will be used against you in the future in efforts to attack your credibility and devalue your claim. The opposing insurer will have you right where it wants you. You will want to be represented by a seasoned and effective personal injury lawyer from the onset of your truck accident claim.
Motorcycle/Other Vehicle Accidents
Some major accidents involve motorcyclists, bicyclists or pedestrians who have been struck by a vehicle. We also advocate for victims of these types of accident.
Alcohol/DUI Related Accidents
Being hit by a drunk driver can turn your life upside down. It can cause loss of loved ones, incapacitating personal injury, and financial loss. On top of all of that, there are the ensuing battles with insurance companies
and the uneasy feeling that comes with not knowing what will happen next.
The personal injury attorneys at Doran, Beam & Farrell can help. We have a demonstrated ability to go after insurance companies and their legal representatives in order to get our clients the compensation they deserve in the wake of such a traumatic event.
In this type of catastrophe it is often not only the driver that holds the blame. For example, the act of serving an individual alcohol when he or she is already visibly intoxicated may place a level of accountability on the people or establishment serving the drinks.
The personal injury lawyers at Doran, Beam & Farrell are equipped to find the avenues by which this can be done.
Drug Related Accidents (Car Or Truck)
Far too many accidents happen in Florida as a result of drug use. Our attorneys at Doran, Beam & Farrell are committed to helping the victims of this type of accident recover from this careless act as best as possible.
We understand how difficult this process can be. Someone who suffers an injury or loss of a loved one as a result of a driver who was impaired by drugs has a lot to deal with; including the mounting medical bills, lost wages, pain and suffering and many other things.
After an accident the only thing you should have to worry about is getting better. The legal and financial matters that seem to crop up in the wake of such an event can make this time even more difficult. We can help accident victims sort through these matters in a timely way. We will also aggressively pursue means of recovering damages from all liable parties.
Just like driving while drunk, driving under the influence of drugs is an act of unpardonable carelessness. The personal injury attorneys at Doran, Beam & Farrell understand this, and we aim to aggressively advocate for the rights of our clients.
We are dedicated to helping our clients recover the highest degree of damages possible. This requires that the victim of a drug-related accident move quickly to seek counsel in the wake of such an event. We can discuss the specifics of how our team will go about recovering damages, and it is best to do so before the victim agrees to accept any settlement from an insurance company.
In the incident of a drug-related traffic accident involving a truck, we are careful to examine all potentially liable parties. The trucking company, for example, may be partly responsible because they may have not adequately screened their employees’ backgrounds or tested for drug use. There are a number of factors to be considered – call us to ensure no stone is left unturned!
Tens of thousands of fatalities result from car crashes each year. They are by far the leading cause of accidental death in this country.
We have deep sympathy for those who have lost loved ones as a result of car accidents.
While such a traumatic event may be extremely tough on the family, they also need to be sure that they are accessing all the benefits available to them in their time of need. This is best done by contacting a legal professional, who can look at all potential sources of compensation for a family’s loss.
By talking to an attorney, you will get a better understanding of the kind of benefits you are eligible to receive. Note that you should do so before you agree to any kind of insurance claim or settlement agreement. One of our New Port Richey attorneys can review your claim and spot any additional benefits that may have been overlooked.
