What causes car accidents in Boca Raton?
Driver negligence accounts for many car accidents. Every driver who gets behind the wheel in Florida owes a duty of care to others. When a driver fails in that duty and someone gets hurt as a result, he or she is liable for the resulting damages.
If another driver’s negligence caused your crash, you may be eligible for compensation for the losses you have faced as a result. This type of reckless behavior can show up in a variety of ways, including:
- Aggressive driving;
- Distracted driving;
- Tired driving;
- Driving while intoxicated, or DWI;
- Driving the wrong way;
- Failing to yield;
- Failing to obey traffic signals; and
- Illegal passing.
Car accident injuries can range from mild and inconvenient to serious and debilitating. The most common types of car accident injuries include:
- Broken bones;
- Head injuries;
- Internal injuries;
- Nerve and spinal cord injuries;
- Lost digits and limbs;
- Full or partial paralysis; and
- Paraplegia or quadriplegia.
Many of these accident-related injuries lead to long-term or even permanent disability. In these cases, crash victims may need to pay for expensive medical procedures, long-term rehabilitation treatments, and specialized mobility equipment. They may also need to hire in-home help to assist them with daily self-care activities. That is why it is essential you receive adequate compensation for your injuries.
To win you that compensation, we need to prove that the other driver in your crash acted with negligence and you suffered serious injuries as a result. If we can show that was the case, we can hold them responsible for your damages.
How do I file a Florida car accident claim?
In Florida, all drivers must carry their own personal injury protection (PIP) insurance policy. After a crash, each motorist must turn to their own PIP policy for coverage first, regardless of who caused the wreck. This policy offers up to $10,000 in coverage for any minor injuries and lost wages you sustain after a car accident. If that is enough to cover your damages, we can help you file a claim with your PIP provider for compensation.
If you are facing more significant damages, however, your PIP coverage may not be enough to pay for your injury-related costs. In this case, we can file a third-party liability claim against the at-fault driver if we can prove you suffered a serious injury in the crash.
To prove liability, we will gather evidence to build your claim. This may include the accident report, witness statements, photos of the accident scene, and testimony from subject matter experts. We have access to resources that provide invaluable support for your injury claim. We can draw on these to help ensure you receive the amount of compensation that is appropriate for your injuries.
How much is my car accident claim worth?
We can review the specifics for your claim and calculate its value based on your injuries, damages, amount of future medical treatment you will require, and the extent to which your injuries prevent you from working and enjoying life.
The basis for determining the dollar value your claim amount will start by including all of the existing hospital bills, doctor bills, and treatment costs accrued to date. To that, we will add the amount of your lost income and any other damages you incurred, including the damage to your vehicle.
Next, we will calculate your estimated future damages. This will include all projected costs for medical treatment, therapy, home care, medication, and rehabilitation. Your attorney will project the value of future lost income, reduced earning potential, pain and suffering, and lost life enjoyment.
It is important to note that the responsible party’s insurance company will likely express a very different perception of the value of your injuries. In almost every case, the insurance company will make a lowball offer and they may try hard to convince you to accept pennies on the dollar for your injuries. That is why we advise you never to speak to the insurance company, give a statement, or sign any documents without consulting a lawyer first. The insurance company may attempt to trick you into signing away your rights to fair compensation for the damages you suffered.
Do I need a lawyer?
Fighting to obtain the financial compensation you deserve for your injuries requires an extensive knowledge of the law and the ability to negotiate complex settlements. We understand how to prove negligence and demonstrate liability. Our attorneys can offer you the peace of mind that comes with having a legal expert in your corner.
Ideally, we will be able to negotiate a fair settlement with the at-fault party’s insurance company after we file your claim. However, if the insurance company refuses to negotiate in good faith, we may recommend taking your case to court.
We will protect your legal rights throughout the process and build a strong case on your behalf. This will leave you free to focus on the important things—like your recovery and future well-being.
