Car Accident Injury Lawsuits Are Common in Florida

Across the nation, it is estimated that someone is involved in a car accident every 10 seconds, with millions of people injured annually. Car accidents are one of the leading causes of personal injury and death in the state of Florida. 

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration reported that motor vehicle deaths in 2020 were at an all-time high since the past 13 years. This is despite the reduced amount of miles driven. With thousands dead and many more injured every year, it’s important to get justice and receive fair compensation for your damages. 

What Is PIP, and Why Do I Need a Car Accident Attorney?

Florida requires every registered owner of a motor vehicle to maintain personal injury protection (PIP) coverage. The maximum benefit payable under PIP is $10,000 less your deductible. When an auto accident occurs, the PIP insurance is primarily used to cover your medical expenses for any physical injuries sustained in the accident, regardless of fault.

Unfortunately, PIP coverage is often grossly inadequate, even in cases of moderate injury, never mind cases involving severe personal injuries that can require expensive surgery or other costly medical intervention. In these situations, you will need a strong car accident lawyer in Boca Raton who’s willing to fight for your rights if necessary. 

We are always prepared to file a lawsuit and litigate your case in the courtroom if necessary to get you the justice you deserve. In addition, we will help you get your outstanding medical bills paid and collect all other compensation you are legally entitled to under Florida law from the at-fault driver’s insurance company.

How can a car accident injury lawyer help your cause?

When you choose us to represent you following a car accident, you can expect us to do the following:

  • We offer free consultations and virtual contact-free case reviews so that you can get all your questions answered. We will educate you on all the legal options you have for your car accident case. 
  • Leave all the work to us. We will contact doctors, hospitals, witnesses, insurance providers, police, attorneys, and anyone else necessary to settle your claim. 
  • We will thoroughly investigate your car accident and will build a solid case so that you are more likely to be awarded additional compensation from insurance companies or other parties.
  • We will handle the rest. Whether you are still recovering from injuries or are simply dealing with the stress and anxiety that is common following auto accidents, now is the time to focus on your own needs. 
  • We work on a contingent fee basis. This means that you don’t need to lay out any money upfront to have our injury attorneys work on your case. We don’t get paid unless we recover a financial settlement or jury award for you.

Our experienced car accident attorneys in Boca Raton can help you get the compensation needed to put your life back together after an injury. There are no risks when you reach out to us for assistance.

Always Hire a Trustworthy Car Accident Law Firm

Don’t settle for a law firm that will just take your case with a promise to get you the “quick and easy” $10,000 minimum personal injury protection coverage required in Florida without doing all they can for you. Instead, you deserve an attorney who will thoroughly investigate your case and will fight for your rights to get you the settlement you deserve.

Car accidents can happen to even the most vigilant drivers. A single moment of distraction or a reckless driver in that spot can lead to disaster. If you are involved in such an incident, you need an auto accident lawyer in Boca Raton. 

A legal expert will study your case, collect evidence, and prepare arguments to protect your interest. Whether you are liable or a victim, it is essential to have a lawyer by your side. At our law firm, we can provide you with an expert attorney to help you navigate this complicated situation.

Why Do I Need a Car Accident Attorney?

Many people hesitate to approach a car accident attorney because they believe their situation doesn’t warrant it. However, the first consultation is free and you’ll be provided with all the information on what to do after a car accident, so there’s no reason why you can’t visit a qualified car accident attorney in Boca Raton before making a decision. Our lawyers can help you in various ways.

Working With Insurance Agencies

Most car owners have reasonable insurance coverage and must deal with adjusters before getting compensation for the accident. Adjusters access the damage and determine the claim amount based on their findings. 

They will ask many questions to understand your situation, which can be a little tricky. Insurance companies want to process claims quickly, but they are also going to collect evidence against you in case there’s a personal injury suit. Therefore, it is best to have a lawyer present when you are discussing things with adjusters.

Collecting Evidence

If you’re a car accident victim, it is essential to gather evidence to support the claim. A qualified Boca Raton car accident attorney will collate medical reports, police incident reports, traffic camera footage, witness accounts, and other such pieces of evidence before building a case. Lawyers know where to look for evidence and how to prepare arguments based on them.

Paperwork

You need to handle several formalities when you get into a car accident in Boca Raton. Filing forms, filing court documents, requesting information, etc., can be a tedious and intimidating process. A lawyer can handle all the paperwork on your behalf, giving you room to recover from the accident.

Timing

Timing is everything when it comes to filing car accident cases. The Official Code of Florida Annotated (OCFA) § 95.11 gives you a general four-year statute of limitations for any accident causing injury. 

However, it would be best if you visited a doctor immediately after the accident, as you have a 14-day window to be eligible for PIP insurance. You must file your case before the statute of limitations expires for the court to accept it.
