Auto Accidents / Motorcycle Accidents

If you or someone you know has been injured as the result of an auto accident we are here to help. Please understand that there are numerous legal and policy requirements that must be complied with in order to protect your rights.


Did you know that you most insurance companies require you to report your claim within a "reasonable time". What does that mean? Well, just that. You must notify your insurance company that you've been involved in an accident and typically, you need to cooperate with your insurance company's investigation of the claim.


Also, your first $10,000 in medical bills, lost wages and replacement services are typically covered by your own insurance or the insurance of the car you were in. This is Personal Injury Protection Insurance. However, you are only entitled to that personal injury protection insurance for injuries which are reported and documented by a treating doctor within fourteen days of the accident. If you don't treat within fourteen days of your accident you will not be entitled to Personal Injury Protection (PIP) benefits. This doesn't mean you can’t have a case though. Call us to discuss your options.


Even if you do treat within fourteen days you will not get the benefit of the entire $10,000.00 coverage you pay for unless you have an Emergency Medical Condition (EMC). The EMC can only be diagnosed by a qualified medical provider. Again, if you don’t have an EMC determination made it does not mean you don’t have a case, but please call us to discuss your options.


These are just some of the many steps and laws you must be aware of to protect your rights and ensure justice is served. Call us to discuss your issues and we will be happy to speak to you.


Slip and Fall

Slip and Fall incidents can be catastrophic. If you or someone you know has been injured as the result of a slip, trip or fall, please contact us to discuss your case.


Evidence collection is so very important when dealing with slip and fall type injuries. Sometimes, when people slip, trip or fall, they will just get up and try to go about their business, then minutes, hours, or even days later, injuries will become apparent and pain levels may increase. By that time, it may be too late to gather the appropriate information to make a claim.


If you are injured as the result of a slip, trip or fall accident, you should try to use your cell phone camera to take pictures and video of the entire area where the incident occurred. Sometimes, there may be wet floor signs. Sometimes signs appear after the slip, trip or fall incident. You should also be sure to report the incident to someone in charge of the location where the incident occurs and ask for the names (first and last) of witnesses and employees and managers. In the event there is video surveillance, you will want to make sure to request it quickly as often times, video surveillance is only kept for a short period of time and then destroyed or recorded over. You should also be sure to keep your clothing and the shoes you were wearing in the same condition they were in at the time of the incident. If you need medical attention, get it as soon as possible.


If you have any questions regarding a slip, trip or fall injury in Florida, please call the attorneys at Katz & Katz, PA. We are here to help.


Homeowner's Claims

Katz & Katz, P.A. handles complex insurance litigation and bad faith related cases. Navigating the often unclear process of filing a homeowner's insurance claim can be intimidating. Policyholders often face difficult issues and complex decisions after they suffer a property loss. Unfortunately, this is when bad decisions are sometimes made. These decisions can have long lasting effects. These decisions and issues can arise during and after the claim is filed.

Katz & Katz, P.A. assists homeowners, businesses, and condo associations in recovering on their claims. The strategy used to separate the facts of a policyholder's case from an insurer's objections, is what sets apart successful representation of the insured party.


Some insurance companies reject claims or under-compensate for damages to individuals and/or property. Katz & Katz, P.A. has successfully handled many property insurance claims. Our attorneys handle all homeowner's and commercial property insurance claims for all types of damage including fire, wind, plumbing leaks, busted pipes, hurricanes, floods, theft, arson, vandalism, and other liability coverage.


Commercial and Condo Association Claims

Commercial insurance policies are particularly complex and contain important benefits that are sometimes overlooked. Damage to structures and contents, if not investigated and presented properly, can cause a business owner to accept less than he or she may be entitled to. An undervalued claim means recovery in an amount less than you are entitled to recover.


Similarly, when making homeowner's claims, homeowners often do not know or understand the details of their policies, and consequently, their rights under the law. Homeowners attempting to present their own claims may not fully comprehend that they may be entitled to compensation for additional living expenses, and that they are allowed to obtain independent quotes for damage.


Katz & Katz, P.A. represents persons injured as the result of workplace accidents (workers' compensation claims) or injured as the result of the negligence of others. Each case is handled with individual attention. The lawyers and staff at Katz and Katz, P.A., are passionate about ensuring that justice is attained for our clients.
