Pursuing a Car Accident & Injury Claim in Lauderhill FL
On the Florida roadways, drivers owe a duty of care to other motorists, to avoid accidents and injuries. If someone violated that duty and, as a result, you had an accident, that party is negligent and, thus, liable for any damages you sustain.
A car accident lawyer can help you pursue a claim for your injuries. Typically, we pursue your claim through one or both of these options:
Your personal injury protection (PIP) coverage: This policy covers up to $10,000 for a portion of your medical treatment and lost income.
The at-fault party’s insurance company: To prevail in an injury claim against the at-fault party’s insurance, your damages must meet the legal threshold for significant injury.
If we cannot obtain a fair offer of settlement from the insurance company, we have the option of pursuing legal action and taking your case to court.
The Benefits of Having a Car Accident Lawyer on Your Side
When you have an injury lawyer in Lauderhill, FL at the Law Offices of Anidjar & Levine on your side, you can rest assured that we will be there for you, protecting your legal rights and fighting for the compensation you deserve.
These are just a few of the ways that we will assist you with your car accident injury claim:
Establishing Liability for Your Injuries
We will go to work immediately, investigating the accident and obtaining evidence to help us establish liability. We have a network of resources we can use for this purpose, including investigators and accident scene reconstruction specialists. Some of the evidence that we may use to document your claim includes:
- Photos of the accident scene
- Statements from witnesses
- Accident reports
- Toxicology test results
- Subject matter expert opinions
Once we have assembled the documentation necessary to substantiate your claim, we will submit it to the at-fault party’s automobile insurance carrier.
Negotiating with the Insurance Company
One of the most valuable services we provide to our clients is representing them in all insurance company interactions and negotiations. The insurance company and their attorneys do not have your best interest at heart. Their primary goal is to minimize their liability. For that reason, they will attempt to blame you or negotiate down to the lowest possible settlement amount.
We will aggressively push for a good faith negotiation, to get you a check as quickly as possible. However, should the insurance company refuse to make a reasonable offer or negotiate with us, we will consult you about the possibility of filing a lawsuit.
Taking Care of Everything
After a serious car accident, you need comprehensive medical care and ample opportunity to recover from your injuries. Our legal team is committed to taking care of everything for you, so you can focus on getting better and getting your life back on track.
To ensure you have the answers and assistance you need, our team takes a proactive stance to communication. We are there for you, to answer your questions and update you on the status of your case.
Time is of the essence when filing a Florida car accident claim. The state statute of limitations requires that you take legal action within four years. Otherwise you relinquish your right to obtain a settlement. Contact our office as soon as possible, so we can help protect your right to seek compensation: 1-800-747-3733.
