Boca Raton Distracted Driving Accident Lawyer

Did you suffer injuries in a Boca Raton distracted driving accident? A distracted driving accident lawyer can help you learn more about your right to compensation.

Distracted driving can mean many things besides a driver losing focus while they look at a cell phone. It can also include eating or drinking behind the wheel, programming a GPS, trying to put on makeup or fix hair, or chatting with a passenger. Even adjusting air conditioning or music controls instead of looking at the road can cause a potent distraction.

Common Compensation

How much compensation should you expect for distracted driving accident injuries in Boca Raton? It may depend on the extent of your injuries, as well as the financial and non-financial losses you sustained as a direct result of the accident. A distracted driving accident can often cause severe injuries, particularly since the driver’s attention may remain off the road too long to respond to a potential accident scenario.

A car accident attorney can help you take a closer look at the losses you have faced in these key categories and the compensation you can reasonably ask for in those areas.

Medical Costs

Dealing with medical costs after a distracted driving accident can prove financially devastating. You may have immense financial losses and ongoing medical needs, especially if you suffered life-altering injuries. Talk to your lawyer about the medical bills you may have already paid or need to pay and the future medical expenses you could face because of your accident.

Lost Income

You may find yourself unable to work for some time after your accident. These income losses can include time missed from work, such as immediately after the accident, in the case of follow-up appointments, and long-term losses if you become unable to work the same schedule you did before the accident.

Your employer may also require you to remain out of work until you have reasonably recovered from your injuries to ensure that your workplace stays compliant with insurance liability policies.

You can discuss these income losses with your Boca Raton distracted driving accident lawyer. You may also want to talk to your lawyer if you face a permanent loss in earning potential because of your distracted driving accident injuries.

Pain and Suffering

Many distracted driving accident claims will offer additional compensation for the suffering you faced. You can talk to your lawyer about physical pain caused by your injuries, as well as emotional anguish from other challenges resulting from the accident.

You can also discuss any psychological diagnoses, like depression or anxiety, as well as any problems with your relationships, your preferred activities, or your energy levels after the accident.

Pursuing Compensation

Florida law has strict requirements when it comes to distractions behind the wheel, including a requirement that motorists not text and drive. However, in many cases, it can prove difficult to establish that the other driver was distracted at the time of your accident.

A distracted driving accident lawyer can help you manage your accident claim regardless of whether the driver received a citation for driving while distracted.

Get More Information About Compensation

Many people do not know how much compensation to expect after a distracted driving accident. How much should you really expect? Should you accept an offer issued by the insurance company?

A lawyer can assess your losses resulting from the accident and calculate an estimate of how much compensation you should expect. They can also advise you on what steps you may need to take next to maximize the compensation you recover.

As a result, you will have a better idea of what to do when the insurance company issues a settlement, especially if that settlement does not reflect the full compensation you deserve.

Get Help Dealing with the Insurance Company

Insurance companies often do not want to have to pay out compensation for injuries caused by their drivers. They may:

  • Offer a low settlement and push you to accept it
  • Try to blame you for the accident
  • Attempt to deny the extent of your injuries
  • Deny your medical needs after the accident

Handling the insurance company on your own could leave you frustrated and struggling. It could even mean that you do not recover the full compensation you deserve for your injuries. A lawyer can help you handle any challenges you may encounter dealing with the insurance company.

Receive Comprehensive Legal Advice and Support

When you work with a Boca Raton distracted driving accident lawyer, you will receive comprehensive legal advice and support at every step of the claim process.

A distracted driving accident attorney can provide you with vital information about when you should talk to the insurance company, what you can post on social media about your accident, and how to handle your medical treatment and the advice of your care providers.

If your case goes to court, that legal advice and support can prove even more essential.
