Any type of car accident is dangerous and can result in serious injuries. Side impact or sideswipe accidents are particularly dangerous because the driver or passenger is directly impacted by the force of the crash. If you or someone you love was injured in a sideswipe accident, our Delray Beach side impact collision lawyer can help. We will review the details of your accident for free and help you build a strong case file.
At the Law Offices of Anidjar & Levine, we never stop fighting for the injured clients we represent and we will not stop fighting for you. We will investigate your accident, identify its cause, and negotiate with the at-fault driver and their insurance provider. Our goal is to recover the costs of your medical bills, lost wages, pain and suffering, and more. Leave the hard work to us.
Side Impact Collisions Happen Far Too Frequently
According to Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) research from 2020, side impact collisions account for as much as 23% of all car accidents in the U.S. They resulted in 5,475 fatalities that year. Many such accidents can also result in the following types of injuries:
- Whiplash and concussion
- Head, neck, and shoulder injuries
- Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI)
- Broken and fractured bones
- Cuts, scrapes, and bruises
- Back and spinal cord injuries
Our Delray Beach car accident lawyer will carefully document your accident-related injuries and their corresponding costs. We also obtain your healthcare records and bills from every medical professional or facility where you were treated. We also obtain a copy of your written prognosis and anticipated date and cost of maximum medical improvement. These ensure your compensation request covers any treatment you will require after your case is resolved.
Covering The Costs Of Your Treatment Plan After A Side Impact Collision
The injuries you sustain in a car accident can have short- and long-term costs including a range of medical care. When we assess the monetary value of your case, we carefully detail these costs which can include:
- Emergency care at the accident scene
- Emergency room treatment
- Ambulance transportation
- Hospital admission
- Assistive medical devices
- Treatment-related travel expenses
- OTC and prescribed medications
- Various rehabilitation and therapies
We document the costs of your treatment plan to ensure no valid medical costs are overlooked or omitted. Because personal injury protection (PIP) insurance is mandatory in Florida, your own policy will cover up to 80% of these costs up to a maximum of $10,000.
Car Accident Compensation Over And Above PIP’s Limitations
You can tap into your PIP policy first and rely on it to cover your post-accident expenses up to a certain point. When its maximum is reached, you can pursue the at-fault driver and their insurer for third-party compensation of your remaining expenses and losses. The demand letter we create for you will request recovery of the following:
- Past and future loss of income
- Property damage or destruction
- Diminished property value
- Disability and disfigurement
- Physical pain and suffering
- Mental and emotional anxiety
- Diminished quality of life
If a sideswipe accident caused the loss of a loved one’s life, our law firm will help your personal representative recover wrongful death damages. These can include funeral and burial expenses and the loss of your loved one’s income and domestic contributions to your family.
Florida Laws That Affect Your Delray Beach Personal Injury Case
When you trust our law firm with your case, you get the benefit of our familiarity with state and local law. We take the time to explain every Florida law that affects your case including the following:
- Florida Statutes § 95.11(3)(a) — the personal injury statute of limitations. It entitles you to file your lawsuit up to four years from the date of the collision.
- Florida Statutes § 95.11(4)(d) — the wrongful death statute of limitations. It entitles you to file your lawsuit up to two years from the date of a loved one’s demise.
- Florida Statutes § 316.065 — crashes, reports, and penalties. It requires the filing of a police report if an accident resulted in injuries, fatalities, or more than $500 in damages.
In addition to ensuring timely compliance with these and all other relevant laws, our legal team also documents the legal elements of negligence. Negligence is defined by duty of care, breach of duty, causation, and damages. Our investigation will uncover the evidence that proves these elements.
