You Can Focus on Your Recovery As We Lead Your Oakland Park Car Accident Case
Car accidents require more time and energy than victims have. Many find they can’t manage to pursue an insurance claim or personal injury lawsuit while trying to heal from injuries, which can take weeks or months. They also may be preoccupied with how they will get the financial compensation they need to pay their bills.
After decades of experience in helping personal injury clients with various losses, we understand what it takes to get through such a challenging and uncertain time. The Law Offices of Anidjar & Levine provides responsive legal services to take care of our clients, no matter where they are in the post-accident recovery process. If you or a loved one is in this position, we can take care of your injury case for you while you focus on your recovery.
We Work on a Contingency Fee Basis, So You Don’t Have To Pay Us Now to Represent You
Our no-win, no-fee policy means we don’t receive a dime for our legal representation unless you win your case. We don’t add to our clients’ financial burdens, which often grow after an accident. We also don’t want to add to their concerns, including how much it costs to hire a personal injury lawyer from our firm. If we recover an insurance settlement or court judgment for you, we receive a percentage to cover attorney’s fees.
We urge you to contact us as soon as possible after the accident. You have a limited time to file a personal injury lawsuit under Florida law. Florida Statutes § 95.11(4)(a) generally gives injured parties two years to sue the opposing party for their losses. If you are filing a wrongful death action, you also have just two years. We will keep your case on track and meet this deadline, saving you time and giving you one less thing to worry about.

We Will Demand Financial Recovery for All Your Damages in an Oakland Park, FL, Collision
Every motor vehicle accident is different, so this is one reason our law firm can’t give you an average compensation amount that car accident victims recover. While we can’t provide exact figures, you could recover compensation for economic losses and non-economic losses from the Oakland Park collision if a negligent party caused it.
Economic losses directly correlate to actual expenses. In short, each item in this category will have a receipt or is a projected expense based on your injuries. Examples of items covered under economic damages include:
- Ambulance service
- Emergency room treatment
- Hospital stays
- Outpatient procedures
- Follow-up doctor appointments
- Transportation to and from medical appointments
- Physical or occupational therapy
- Medical equipment, including prosthetics
- Home modifications as necessary
- In-home nursing or healthcare visits
Economic damages also include compensation for the following:
- Lost income
- Reduced earning capacity
- Loss of future earning
- Loss of commissions and bonuses
Suppose your vehicle repair or replacement costs exceed the property damage liability (PDL) coverage. In that case, you may also seek compensation for those additional costs under the provisions of economic damages.
Unlike economic damages, non-economic damages do not have a direct monetary correlation. Our attorneys can calculate them using a formula to determine a fair value to ensure your future and provide things money cannot buy.
The non-economic damages you could receive compensation for after an Oakland Park collision in Broward County include the following:
- Impaired quality of life
- Loss of consortium
- Loss of companionship
- Pain and suffering
- Mental anguish
- Temporary or permanent disability
Florida does not limit the amount of compensation you can receive under non-economic damages.
Wrongful Death Damages
If you lost a loved one in an Oakland Park car accident, we extend our sympathy for your loss. We know this is a difficult time, and seeking legal action may not be on your mind right now. But if a negligent party’s reckless actions caused the fatal crash, we can lead your case for damages while you take care of your loved one’s final arrangements and take care of your family.
Florida allows specific members of the decedent’s family to file for additional compensation under Florida Statutes § 768.21. We can explain who can file a wrongful death lawsuit when we talk with you.
If you can file a wrongful death lawsuit for a fatal Oakland Park car accident, damages could pay your loved one’s funeral and burial expenses, final medical expenses, lost income, and other compensation that can help ease your family’s expenses during your period of grief and loss.
What Happens If PIP Doesn’t Cover Your Expenses After a Florida Car Accident?
Florida’s no-fault insurance requires Florida drivers to carry personal protection insurance (PIP) coverage. PIP supplies a minimum coverage of $10,000 for medical bills and an additional $10,000 for PDL.
In any accident, those monetary amounts can be gone in seconds with the cost of medical care and vehicle repair or replacement. When that happens, Florida does permit you to file a lawsuit against the at-fault driver for additional compensation if your injuries meet specific criteria, including:
- Significant impairment
- Permanent injuries
- Injuries that result in death
- Scarring or disfigurement
- Accident-related expenses that exceed PIP and PDL allowances
If you aren’t sure your injuries qualify for additional compensation, our Oakland Park car accident lawyer can help. You can contact the Law Offices of Anidjar & Levine today for a free consultation.
Beyond No-Fault Insurance Coverage After a Florida Car Accident
When your injuries meet the criteria under Florida Statutes § 627.737, you can file a lawsuit against the at-fault driver for additional compensation. Pursuing coverage for your injuries beyond the provisions of no-fault insurance minimums can include:
- Filing a claim against an insurance company
- Filing an injury lawsuit against the driver
Having an Oakland Park car accident lawyer to assist you through the process makes it less daunting. While you work on recovery, our team will be fighting for your compensation.
If You Were Partly at Fault for an Oakland Park Car Accident, You Should Still Call Us
If you were partly responsible for your car accident in Oakland Park, Florida allows you to seek compensation under its comparative fault rule. When the comparative fault is assessed, you may still qualify for compensation. Still, the amount may be reduced based on the percentage of fault assigned to you.
Suppose you were making a right turn, unaware your turn signal and brake lights weren’t working and another driver hit you from behind. While the other driver is primarily at fault, you hold some responsibility for operating your vehicle with faulty lighting.
In this instance, the other driver might be held 80 percent liable, and you might be deemed 20 percent responsible. Adjustment in final damage awards will coincide with the assigned levels of liability. If your share of fault exceeds 50%, you won’t be able to recover compensation from the opposing party, per Florida law.
