Derek W. Bernstein, Esq./M.S. – Personal Injury Protection (PIP), Florida Motor Vehicle No-Fault, Personal Injury, Bodily Injury, Uninsured Motorist, Underinsured Motorist and Healthcare Law.
You’ve just been in a car accident. You are in pain, you are alone and you are afraid. Does the person who hit me even have insurance? Do I know a good doctor who can heal me? Do you have good insurance?
The next day you are sore all over. People say you will be fine, the person who hit you said they will take care of everything. You are experienced, you know better.
Most people think that if they tell the truth and pay their car insurance premiums every month that when they get in a car accident their insurance will be there for them. What most are shocked to find out is that the insurance companies are looking for reasons not to pay your claim.
Especially when it comes to “soft tissue” injuries where the complaints are only coming from you, the insurance companies do everything in their power to downplay your injuries. Especially, when the vehicle you were driving took “minor damage”.
Luckily for you there are attorneys who are well versed in all kinds of personal injury law.
Derek Bernstein is one of those Personal Injury attorneys who has practiced multiple areas of injury law to give you a head to toe evaluation of your medical and insurance issues.
The son of a plumber and a customer service specialist, Mr. Bernstein knows what customer service is and has seen the personal effects of what a car crash can do to a family when it comes to medical bills, missing work, and pain and suffering. That’s why he takes such pride in making sure that every medical bill is paid properly by the insurance company and his clients are compensated for their time loss at work and pain due to accidents.
Mr. Bernstein earned his Bachelor’s and Master’s degrees from the University of Florida. He worked in the private sector for a few years in Marketing and Sales where he managed a team of sales agents. Mr. Bernstein received his Juris Doctorate from Stetson University College of Law.

This gives Mr. Bernstein insight into what is important to the insurance company when evaluating a claim.
