Whether you're seeking a settlement to cover your losses or you require legal help after the tragic loss of a loved one in a fatal accident, our skilled attorneys are here for you.
We approach every case with compassion, providing personalized attention and our utmost efforts.
Hollywood Car Accident Claims We Handle
Car accidents can stem from various causes, with driver negligence being a major factor. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), human error accounts for 94% of car accidents in the United States.
If you weren't at fault for the crash, someone else was. Identifying the responsible party is the initial step toward seeking additional compensation.
Our Hollywood car accident lawyers will investigate your accident, analyze the police report, interview witnesses, and examine the crash scene to gather evidence of liability. Once we establish fault, we will assist you in filing a claim.
Our team is prepared to handle claims involving:
- Driver distractions
- Texting and driving
- Drunk driving accidents
- Auto product defects
- Fatigued drivers
- Reckless driving and speeding
- Poor weather conditions
- Road hazards
- Malfunctioning traffic lights
- Failure to follow traffic laws
Even if someone else is to blame, insurance adjusters may attempt to deny or dispute certain aspects of your claim. In such situations, we will fight on your behalf.
Understanding Florida's No-Fault Car Accident Laws
In the United States, states enforce either "at-fault" or "no-fault" insurance laws. In at-fault states, the responsible driver and their insurance company are obligated to pay damages to the affected parties. Conversely, no-fault states require drivers' insurance companies to compensate them, regardless of fault.
While the no-fault system has its advantages, insurance companies prioritize protecting their own financial interests and may employ various tactics to avoid paying you the rightful compensation after an accident. Therefore, attempting to handle an insurance claim on your own is ill-advised.
A car accident attorney can negotiate with your insurer and ensure you receive the compensation you deserve.
Pursuing Additional Damages for "Serious" Injuries
One of the significant drawbacks of a no-fault system is the difficulty accident victims face in seeking compensation if their medical bills and other losses exceed their insurance policy's maximum coverage. If you have sustained a "serious" injury as defined by state laws, you may be eligible to pursue additional compensation from the at-fault driver. If you find yourself in this situation, it is crucial to seek assistance from an attorney to handle your claim.
The no-fault system prohibits plaintiffs from seeking compensation for pain and suffering, and personal injury protection (PIP) insurance imposes limitations on the types of damages covered. Even if your PIP insurance is exhausted, you may still be able to recover these expenses from the at-fault driver. An attorney well-versed in Florida laws can help you secure the maximum compensation available.
After the accident, it is essential to take steps to preserve evidence. This includes documenting liability and the extent of your damages. Following an accident, you should:
- Contact the authorities: The responding officer will file a police report detailing how the accident occurred. Obtain a copy of this report as evidence for your claim.
- Seek medical attention: Ensure you receive medical attention for all injuries, even seemingly minor ones. Keep records of all treatments received, which can serve as evidence of harm caused by the accident.
- Collect witness information: Gather contact details from any eyewitnesses at the scene. Their testimony can support your claim that the other driver was responsible for the crash.
- Note traffic cameras: Identify any traffic cameras in the vicinity. Footage from these cameras can be crucial in proving fault. An attorney can assist you in obtaining this footage.
- Take photos: Capture images of your injuries and any physical damage sustained at the scene.
