Any car accident is frightening and stressful. When the driver who caused your accident flees the scene, your post-accident stress can greatly increase. This is where our personal injury law firm comes in. We can help you identify other avenues of compensation. At the Law Offices of Anidjar & Levine, we understand state and local laws and how they can benefit your pursuit of financial recovery.
Our Delray Beach hit-and-run accident and injury lawyer will assess how many of your initial expenses can be covered and whether we can turn to your own insurer for additional compensation. If the at-fault driver is identified, you can even pursue them for compensation that exceeds your insurance policy limits. Leave it to us. While we build your case, you can focus on getting better.
The Immediate Benefits Of Florida’s Personal Injury Protection Requirement
In Florida, personal injury protection (PIP) insurance is mandatory, per the Florida Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles (FLHSMV) guidelines. PIP is beneficial because it covers:
- 80 percent of your accident-related medical expenses
- A maximum of $10,000 per person/per accident
Because PIP pays your initial expenses regardless of fault, it is ideal for hit-and-run accident victims. Our Delray Beach car accident lawyer will make sure you understand the benefits of your PIP coverage and file your insurance claim accordingly.
You Can Recover Additional Compensation Once PIP Coverage Maxes Out
PIP only covers some of your accident-related expenses. You have the following options for additional compensation after your PIP coverage is maximized:
- Identify the at-fault driver and pursue compensation via their insurer
- Recovering compensation from your own insurance policy if it includes uninsured motorist coverage
Regardless of which financial recovery option you choose, the economic damages you can recover include uncovered medical bills, lost wages, and property damage or total property loss. You can also recover many non-economic damages. These are more personal and can include loss of independence or mobility, disfigurement, and physical and emotional pain and suffering.
If a family member was fatally injured by a hit-and-run driver, you have our heartfelt condolences. You also have our commitment to pursue wrongful death damages for the family’s personal representative. These damages can include funeral and burial costs, loss of financial and familial support, and loss of consortium, companionship, and guidance.
Our Hit-And-Run Attorney Will File Your Potential Lawsuit On Time
Because your accident happened in Delray Beach, its filing deadline is dictated by Florida law. Florida Statutes § 95.11(3)(a) generally gives you up to four years from the date of the accident to file your personal injury lawsuit. Similarly, Florida Statutes § 95.11(4)(d) generally gives you up to two years from the date of a loved one’s passing to file your wrongful death lawsuit.
By getting our law firm involved in your case sooner rather than later, you ensure we have plenty of investigative time. We can interview witnesses while their memories are fresh. We will also have more time to file your lawsuit within the deadlines. In short, it is never too soon to put our car accident team to work for you.
Our Law Firm Does Not Get Paid Unless You Do
No one should take on a negligent driver and their insurer without legal guidance and support out of fear of its costs. At the Law Offices of Anidjar & Levine, we represent injured clients on a contingency-fee basis. Here is what that means for you:
- We absorb all the costs of building your case
- You pay nothing out of your own pocket
- Our fee is taken out of your settlement
- We are not compensated until your case is won
Our fee structure also means you do not have to wait to get started and could avoid an expired statute of limitations.
