Common Causes of Auto Accidents in Florida

Car accidents can have many different causes, including human error, defective auto components and parts, weather conditions, and road hazards. Chief among these causes, however, is human error. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) estimates that human error accounts for 94% of car accidents in the U.S.

Common causes of car crashes include:

Understanding Florida's No-Fault Car Accident Laws

In the U.S., states enforce “at-fault” or “no-fault” insurance laws. In at-fault states, the at-fault driver and their insurance company are responsible for paying damages to the affected parties in an accident. No-fault states, on the other hand, require drivers’ insurance companies to compensate them, regardless of who was at fault.

Florida is one of a dozen or so no-fault insurance states. Still, it’s important to keep in mind that insurance companies’ main objective is to protect their bottom line, and they will use any trick in the book to avoid paying you the compensation you deserve after an accident. This is why it's important to work with a qualified lawyer.

It’s never a good idea to go through the legal process on your own after an auto accident. A car accident attorney will be able to negotiate with your insurer and ensure you receive the compensation you need and deserve.

Seeking Additional Damages for "Serious" Injuries

Florida is a “no-fault” state, which means your car insurance company is responsible for paying the damages incurred in an accident. However, no-fault insurance policies have limits, which means it might not be enough to cover the cost of your injuries and losses. If you have suffered what is considered to be a "serious" injury (as determined by state law), you may have grounds to seek additional compensation from the at-fault driver.

For this reason, it's important to follow a few simple steps after an accident:

  • Contact the authorities. The responding officer will file a police report that describes how the accident occurred. Make sure you receive a copy of the police report; this will serve as evidence to bolster your claim.
  • Seek medical attention. Make sure to seek medical attention for any and all injuries, even ones that seem minor. Keep records of all treatment received. This can be used as evidence that the accident caused you harm.
  • Collect any witnesses’ information. Gather the contact information of any eyewitnesses at the scene. Their testimony may be beneficial in proving that the other driver was responsible for causing the crash.
  • Take note of any traffic cameras at the scene. The footage from nearby traffic cameras can be vital in proving the other driver was at-fault for the accident, which is something your lawyer can help you secure.
  • Take photos. Take photos of your injuries and any physical damage sustained at the scene.

The no-fault system does not allow plaintiffs to seek compensation for pain and suffering, since drivers under this system are covered by “personal injury protection” (PIP) insurance coverage. This is why it’s in your best interest to work with an attorney who is well-versed in Florida laws and can help you recover maximum compensation.

How Are Damages for Pain & Suffering Calculated?

Pain and suffering can be hard to quantify. The pain after a car accident does not translate clearly to dollar signs, so coming up with an exact value is what makes this one of the most challenging aspects of any claim.

There are a few main components of "pain and suffering," but it will mainly comprise the physical pain you have suffered, as well as your emotional pain. When you present your claim to the insurance company for review, you will need to provide several supplemental materials to demonstrate what is causing your pain and suffering.

Evidence of your pain and suffering may include:

  • Your medical records
  • Types of treatment received
  • Receipts of the medication purchased
  • Notes from your employer that you were unable to work
  • Any other evidence of pain that may be related to the incident

While you are receiving treatment, it is important you remain honest and upfront at all times, especially with the doctors. Discuss with them the severity of your pain and whatever discomfort you might be feeling. All of this documentation will be used appropriately when you bring your injury claim to the insurance adjusters.

Our Fort Lauderdale car accident lawyers have 240+ years of combined legal experience and can use their knowledge and skill to maximize your results.

can I afford to Hire a Car Accident lawyer?

At Rosenberg & Rosenberg, P.A., we understand that finances can be tight, especially in the wake of an accident. It is for this reason we promise each of our clients that we will not charge them a dime until we win their case. There are many associated fees leading up to a settlement or ruling, but our firm will front these costs entirely.

Our legal team is confident in our abilities to advocate on your behalf, which is why we only collect attorneys' fees if we can reach a financial recovery of some sort on your behalf. In the unfortunate circumstance of the ruling not being in our clients' favor, we choose to absorb the costs so you can walk away without owing us anything.

Legal Liability Plays a Huge Role in Fault

The best way to prove who was at fault in the event of an accident is by proving legal liability. Liability can often be determined by demonstrating who was more negligent in the accident and whether they acted in accordance with how any reasonable person would have acted in the same scenario. Further, liability can also be called into question if one party owed a standard of care to the other.

There are a few general liability claims that are followed by the court:

  • When the injured party is in some way responsible for their injuries, their financial award may be reduced
  • An employer may be responsible for injuries caused by their employee when they are performing their regular job duties
  • Property owners that do not maintain their property to safety standards can be liable for injuries sustained from this negligence
  • Improperly made products or devices hold the seller and the manufacturer liable since the consumer is not aware where the defect was created

The more people that were involved in an accident, the more complicated a lawsuit can become. There are a number of ways that liability can be proven and compensation awarded in these instances. Further, in scenarios where the injured party is at least partially responsible for their injuries, a percentage amount of blame will be awarded to determine how much needs to be paid in restitution.
