If you suffered serious injuries in an auto accident caused by another driver’s negligence, do not expect an auto insurer, even your own, to pay you what you deserve without a fight. A car accident lawyer in Miramar can help.
The team at the Law Firm of Anidjar & Levine is committed to representing car accident victims and ensuring they receive a fair settlement for their accident-related losses. We do not shrink back when challenged by big insurance companies or other parties involved in a case. Florida’s statute of limitations allows you to file a claim four years from the date of your accident. However, the proof that you need to file a successful claim (e.g., medical records, W2s, paystubs) may get lost over time.
Avoid losing evidence; hurry up and call us today: 800-747-3733.

Why Do You Gather so Much Evidence?
To prove negligence and hold a party liable for injuries, we must establish four elements.
- First, we show that all drivers have a duty of careto operate their vehicles safely.
- We then show how the driver that caused your collision breached that dutyby driving carelessly (e.g., texting, talking on the phone, drinking alcohol before getting behind the wheel) and jeopardizing the lives of others on the road.
- The third element requires we connect your injuries to the accident.
- From here, we determine your damages(the expenses you paid and the losses you sustained due to the accident).
Steps two through four are where the evidence we collected with the help of our experts comes in. We can use accident reconstruction results, photos, the police report, and eyewitness testimony to prove how the accident occurred. We can use medical information and testimony to both prove how your injuries are related to the accident and show what the accident cost you.
What Can I Recover in My Car Accident Claim?
We aim to recover compensation for your past and future medical expenses. This might include compensation for any past surgeries you required, any medical care your doctor foresees you needing in the future, and any medications you are currently taking.
If your injuries stopped you from working, we factor in the financial hardship from losing your current and future income.
We also demand compensation for the loss of your damaged vehicle or for its diminished value. You may also recover damages for the physical and emotional pain and suffering you experienced because of the accident. The party at fault for the accident or the party’s insurance company pays these damages.
Will My Auto Insurance Company Not Cover My Damages?
Your auto insurer will compensate you only as required by Florida’s “no-fault” state law. Florida requires drivers to have personal injury protection (PIP) insurance which compensates for injuries regardless of who was at fault for the accident. PIP insurance pays a maximum of $10,000 in medical and disability benefits but only if you seek treatment within 14 days of your car accident. Also, PIP only covers 80 percent of medical, dental, rehabilitative, and nursing home services, and 60 percent of lost wages or income.
If you sustained extensive injuries from the accident, $10,000 may not even cover your hospital bill. In these situations, we notify the at-fault party or the party’s insurance company of our intent to recover the compensation you deserve for your injuries.
We begin negotiations with the auto insurer, which will, more than likely, challenge your claim. The company may require you to undergo an independent medical examination because insurers often do not take your word about your injuries or rely on statements from your personal physician. If this is the case, we might send a videographer or court reporter with you to ensure the doctor does everything by the book.
If the insurer refuses to offer you a valid settlement, we will take it to court.
