How Do I File A Car Accident Claim in Florida?
Florida Statutes § 627.736 states that all Florida drivers must carry personal injury protection (PIP) insurance. After an accident, each motorist must first turn to their PIP policy for coverage, regardless of who caused the wreck. PIP policies offer up to $10,000 for minor injuries and lost wages you sustain after a car accident. If that sum is enough to cover your damages, we can help you file a claim with your PIP provider for compensation.
However, if you face more significant damages, your PIP coverage may not be enough to pay for your injury-related costs. When your damages exceed your PIP, our Boca Raton car accident lawyers can file a third-party liability claim against the at-fault driver if we can prove you suffered a serious injury as defined by Florida Statutes § 627.737.
To prove liability, we will gather evidence to build your claim. This may include the accident report, witness statements, photos of the accident scene, and testimony from subject matter experts. In addition, we have access to resources that can provide invaluable support for your car accident claim. We can draw on these resources and our knowledge of Florida law to help ensure you receive the amount of compensation that is appropriate for your injuries.

How Much Is My Car Accident Case Worth?
We can review the specifics of your claim and calculate its value based on your injuries, damages, the amount of future medical treatment you will require, and the extent to which your injuries prevent you from working and enjoying life.
Determining the dollar value of your claim starts by calculating existing hospital bills, doctor bills, and treatment costs accrued to date. We will then add the amount of your lost income and any other damages you incurred, including the damage to your vehicle.
Next, we will calculate your estimated future damages. Future losses include all projected medical treatment, therapy, home care, medication, and rehabilitation costs. Our car accident attorneys will also estimate the value of future lost income, reduced earning potential, pain and suffering, and lost life enjoyment.

Compensation For Fatal Car Accidents In Florida
If your loved one was in an accident that ultimately took their life, consider hiring a lawyer to be by your side as you bring a wrongful death claim.
When a wrongful death accident occurs, you and members of your family may qualify to seek compensation for your pain and suffering. We can also help you fight for a fair settlement to ease the financial losses incurred from your loved one’s accident, including compensation for medical bills, funeral and burial expenses, lost income, and more.
Establishing Liability In Your Car Accident
To receive compensation, our Boca Raton car accident lawyers need to prove that the other driver in your accident acted with negligence and you suffered serious injuries.
Our lawyers can help you build your case by establishing liability and making an argument proving the other driver’s reckless or wrongful actions caused your collision and resulting injuries. There are three main areas involved in establishing liability:
- Prove duty of care: Duty of care refers to the other person’s obligation of care to the other driver. In other words, a duty of care is an obligation to avoid causing harm to others. Every driver has a duty of care when driving on the road. It is an automatic “given” that drivers must drive responsibly, follow the laws of the road, and not harm anyone while driving recklessly or maliciously.
- Prove the other driver engaged in a breach of duty: During this case phase, our lawyers will argue that the other driver breached the duty of care. For example, the liable party may have breached their duty by the way they drove (their actions) or by something they failed to do (their inactions). Whatever the case, your lawyer will show how their actions led to your accident.
- Prove causation of the accident to injuries: Your lawyer must show that the accident caused your injuries or your loved one’s death. The other party may claim that illness or other health conditions factored into your injuries or your loved one’s passing. Still, our lawyers can fight against these statements by building evidence that supports your claim.
