If you, like thousands of others, have suffered injuries in a Miami car accident, you may find yourself wondering what comes next. How can you protect your right to compensation? Can you get compensation for your injuries–and the frequently high cost of medical bills, not to mention the lost wages that may go along with time off work after your injury?
At Eltringham Law Group, we’re here for you when you’re hungry for maximum justice for your car accident–and that means compensation for all the losses you may have sustained. We have helped many of our clients make their health a priority while we focus on helping them pursue the compensation they need to cover those extensive medical bills.
Why Hire a Miami Car Accident Lawyer
At Eltringham Law Group, we understand the frustration that often goes along with substantial car accident injuries. Not only do you have the impact of those injuries to contend with, including the ongoing limitations that your injuries may cause and the extensive medical costs that often continue to rise as you deal with those injuries, but you may also find yourself fighting with the insurance company to get back to work.
We can help you learn more about your rights and the compensation you may deserve–then help you fight for it.
We Start by Fully Investigating Our Clients’ Miami Car Accidents
We start with a look at all the details that may have contributed to the accident: who may bear the liability and what factors likely contributed to the accident. Sometimes, our investigation will uncover critical details and evidence that will help prove that the other party caused the accident, which can help you win your claim and the full compensation you deserve.
We Take a Comprehensive Look at Our Clients’ Financial And Non-Financial Losses
Often, car accident victims have no idea how much compensation they can recover for serious car accident injuries. The insurance company may try to convince them to accept a low settlement offer that does not at all reflect their needs. We work to help our clients break down the full extent of their losses so they can include them as part of their claims.
We Fight to Help Our Clients Get the Justice They Deserve
Car accidents caused by someone else’s negligence often mean a significant, ongoing impact on the victim. While we cannot help accident victims turn back the clock and stop the accident, we can help them pursue the funds they need to heal and rebuild. We focus on helping our clients get much-deserved justice for their car accident losses.
Liability in Miami Car Accidents
Sometimes, you can clearly see that the other driver caused your accident. Drinking and driving, driving while distracted, or ignoring the rules of the road can all increase accident risk and leave the other driver liable for a large percentage of the accident. However, in some cases, your attorney may cover additional factors that may influence the balance of liability in a car accident.
- The other driver was working at the time of the accident, and the driver’s employer had policies or procedures that may have contributed to the accident.
- A mechanical failure caused the accident, which could leave the manufacturer of the vehicle liable.
- A mechanic certified the vehicle as road-worthy but failed to repair or note an obvious problem, which led to the accident.
- An intoxicated driver caused your accident, and the bar or restaurant that served the driver knew the driver had a drinking problem.
At Eltringham Law Group, we take a more comprehensive look at the individuals or entities who may have contributed to your car accident and help you put together an effective claim against each one.
Determining Compensation for a Miami Car Accident
After a serious car accident, you may deserve equally serious compensation for your injuries. At Eltringham Law, we cannot guarantee the compensation you will recover, but we can help you break down your losses and give you a better idea of how much compensation you should expect from a fair offer from the insurance company.
Compensation for Medical Costs
You may have the right, after a car accident, to recover compensation for your medical bills: your emergency care expenses and the cost of ongoing care related to your injuries. Make sure you calculate all of your medical costs related to the accident: emergency transport, hospitalization, long-term care, physical and occupational therapy, and any other costs required to treat your injuries.
Talk to your car accident attorney in Miami about any other costs you may have had to contend with, including the cost of modifications to your home to help aid in independence during your recovery.
Compensation for Lost Wages
Did your injuries stop you from working? You may have missed out on much-needed income, which means you may have the right to compensation for those lost wages. Talk to your Miami car accident attorney about your work-related losses, including lost opportunities, lost sick and vacation leave, and lost wages if you could not work, especially long-term, after your accident.
If your car accident caused injuries with a long-term impact that will permanently prevent you from working in your field, you may also have the right to claim compensation for lost earning potential.
Pain and Suffering
In addition to compensation for your actual financial losses, many car accident claims will include a section for general damages, also known as pain and suffering. Compensation for pain and suffering may depend on the extent of your injuries and the limitations they pose for you throughout your recovery.
