How the Law Offices of Anidjar & Levine can help you
If you are seeking to hold another driver responsible for your reckless driving accident, you will need to prove how the driver did not uphold their duty of care, therefore entitling you to compensation for your losses. Proving another motorist’s reckless driving, however, can be time-consuming and challenging.
Fortunately, you do not have to struggle with a potentially complex and time-consuming reckless driving case on your own. The Law Offices of Anidjar & Levine can take charge of your case and fight for the compensation you deserve.
Handle The At-Fault Party’s Insurance Company
Insurance adjusters typically do not work in a victim’s best interests but want to preserve their employers’ profits. Our car accident lawyer can negotiate with an insurance company on your behalf. If the insurer does not offer you an adequate settlement, we can fight for what you deserve in court.
Prove Your Case And Damages
We leave no stone unturned in gathering the evidence required to prove your case. This can include investigating the accident scene itself and drawing on the professional opinions of accident reconstruction experts. The evidence we could collect can include but is not limited to:
- Traffic camera footage
- Police accident reports
- Witness statements
In addition to having evidence that proves the other driver’s liability, you will also need to prove your damages and injuries. We can help organize medical reports and bills for your claim or lawsuit. In some cases, medical reports may not show conclusive evidence linking a victim’s injuries to the car accident.
Our car accident attorney can speak to your medical providers and iron out these details to give you the best possible chance for recovering what you need and deserve.
Present Your Case In Court
Having passionate legal representation protecting your legal rights and representing you in court can take a huge weight off your shoulders.
If your case makes it to court, our lawyer can:
- File your lawsuit
- Gather evidence of your damages and the cause of the accident
- Interview and cross-examine witnesses
- Communicate with the at-fault party and their legal counsel
- Reference outcomes to cases like yours
- Present your case before a judge
Compensation In Reckless Driving Accidents
While money cannot turn back the time, it can help provide comfort and reimburse you for your accident-related losses.
You could seek the following damages against a reckless driver:
- Medical expenses related to the accident
- Medical devices, such as a neck brace or wheelchair
- Lost income and future lost income
- Future lost earning capacity
- Physical pain and anguish
- Emotional suffering
- Disfigurement and scarring
- Loss of a limb
- Loss of life enjoyment
You could also receive additional types of compensation, depending on the circumstances of your accident in St. Petersburg.
Timely Action Is Important In Reckless Driving Cases
You generally have four years to file a personal injury lawsuit in Florida, per Florida Statute § 95.11(3)(a). If your loved one died in an accident with a reckless driver, you have two years to pursue a wrongful death lawsuit in Florida. You can speak with a lawyer from our team about the specifics of your situation to learn how these deadlines may affect your case.
It is important to remember that failing to file your lawsuit in time could prevent you from recovering any damages.
Our St. Petersburg reckless driving accident lawyer can help you navigate timelines, deadlines, and other aspects of your injury lawsuit. Contact the Law Offices of Anidjar & Levine today for a free consultation.
Reckless Driving In St. Petersburg
Reckless driving is a serious traffic offense in Florida. According to Florida Statute § 316.192, reckless driving involves “willful and wanton disregard” for the safety of other road users.
Reckless driving can include a multitude of acts and behaviors, including:
- Fleeing a law enforcement officer in a motor vehicle
- Excessive speeding
- Racing other cars
- Ignoring traffic signs and signals
- Driving while under the influence of alcohol and/or drugs
Reckless driving kills and injures tens of thousands of individuals every year, according to the National Highway Safety Administration (NHTSA). Unfortunately, Florida ranks high on the list of states with significant numbers of traffic fatalities.
While accidents can potentially happen for many reasons, including bad weather and vehicle defects, driver negligence and recklessness can play a role in many car crashes. A serious car accident has the potential to change your entire life.
The other driver may hire legal representation to fight your claim or lawsuit tooth and nail. However, a lawyer from our firm can help prove your case, gather the evidence needed, and represent you strongly in court if your case makes it to that point.
Evidence in your case could include expert testimony, traffic camera footage, and photos of the accident scene. We can review what you have and see if there is more evidence available.
