As soon as the accident happens, you may struggle with feelings of overwhelm as you navigate the aftereffects. Juggling insurance claims, and communicating with other parties that were involved in the accident while trying to focus on recovering from your injuries can be stressful. If you’re dealing with chest injuries, it’s possible your anxiety far exceeds even these valid concerns, as you wonder about your job, your health, and your future.
The legal process can take a lot of time and energy, but you don’t have to do it alone. A chest injury car accident lawyer from our firm can stand by your side to handle the legal aspects of your case while you focus on recovering from your injuries.
A Boca Raton Car Accident Lawyer From Our Firm Can Help You
Unfortunately, the emotional effects of a car accident don’t end once you leave the scene. A lawyer from our team can help shoulder your responsibilities and restore your peace of mind while you recover from the accident.
There are many benefits of hiring a lawyer from our team. Our main goal is to fight for you to receive the damages you are entitled to using our knowledge of the law and acting as your advocates.
We Help Communicate With Insurance Companies
Believe it or not, insurance companies don’t have your best interests in mind. Typically, their primary goal is to settle quickly and for way less than you deserve. Having a lawyer during communications with insurance companies helps you to fight for compensation for your current and future accident-related losses and expenses.
We Ensure Your Settlement Reflects The Injuries You Sustained
If you accepted a settlement offer prior to knowing the full extent of your injuries, there is nothing you can do to receive a higher settlement. Don’t make this mistake. A lawyer from our team will help you gather information and even talk with your physician, urging you to wait until we know your future medical needs.
We Fight For You To Receive Compensation
When you meet with a lawyer from our team, we will discuss all the details of your case. During this conversation, we will be able to determine the estimated value of your accident-related losses. Losses from an accident can be more than medical expenses and property damage. Damages can also include a change of income and the pain and suffering you are experiencing.

Damages You May Be Eligible to Claim After a Chest Injury Car Accident in FL
During a car accident, you could experience blunt trauma to the chest wall causing bruising. This injury can result in pain, tenderness, and swelling. Broken ribs or injured muscles can also be the outcome of trauma to the chest during a car accident. Depending on the severity of your injury, damage to your chest wall may even cause breathing problems.
With complications like these, you may suffer personally, physically, and financially. These are called damages. Your lawyer may be able to demand compensation for these as part of your claim or lawsuit. Common car accident damages include:
- Past and future medical bills
- Past and future loss of income and benefits
- Out-of-pocket costs for medical equipment and accommodations
- Vehicle repair or replacement costs
- Diminished value of the vehicle
In some cases, you may be eligible to claim compensation for your physical, mental, and emotional suffering. Your attorney will let you know if you qualify to demand these forms of damages.
Florida’s Insurance Laws May Affect Your Path to Compensation
While you don’t have to worry about understanding Florida’s tort and negligence laws, it may be helpful to know the difference between your options. Our attorneys will assess your case in order to pursue the best avenue; however, generally, car accident victims can either file an insurance claim or lawsuit.
Most car accident victims will file an insurance claim through their own Personal Injury Protection (PIP). Our attorneys can help you negotiate for an appropriate settlement through your coverage, so your bills and needs are accounted for. PIP only covers up to about $10,000 of damages, though. If you suffered severe injuries, you may need to file a lawsuit.
While a lawsuit may be a more involved and difficult process, our team is ready and able to handle this for you. We don’t want the legal process to be an additional burden to you. We will do our best to prepare you for proceedings and act as your advocates every step of the way.
Florida’s Statute of Limitations for a Car Accident Lawsuit
The statute of limitations refers to a deadline you must meet in order to file a lawsuit. While you will have a deadline for filing an insurance claim as well, this is often only about 30 days.
The statute of limitations for filing a lawsuit in Florida is around four years per Florida Statutes § 95.11(3)(a). Talking with an attorney soon after your accident can help to protect your case from the consequences of a missed deadline. Our team can interpret the statute of limitations for your situation and handle your case with awareness of this important timeline.
