The average settlement for a car accident in Fort Lauderdale can be difficult to determine because of the many variables involved in each individual collision. This means no two car accident victims will have the same value assigned to their personal injury claim. The best way to determine the value of your potential car accident settlement is to review the cause of the accident and its total financial impact with a Fort Lauderdale lawyer as soon after the accident as possible.

Understand the No-Fault Law in Florida
Florida Statute §627.7407 details the Florida Motor Vehicle No-Fault Law and how it applies in a car accident. In addition, Florida Statute §627.736 requires every car registered in the state to have PIP (personal injury protection). The minimum required PIP coverage will pay for up to $10,000 in medical expenses resulting from car accident injuries.
The lawyer who represents your claim will explain how these laws affect your overall compensation package. We may also help hold the at-fault driver responsible for medical costs above the PIP limitations and for your other injury-related expenses.
