How Did Your Car Accident Happen?

Rear-end collisions are among the most common types of car accidents. Drivers commonly become distracted by cellphone calls, GPS controls, and texts resulting in serious, painful injuries that can leave victims unable to work or live a normal life. In Florida, the law presumes negligence for the driver of the car in the rear. In other words, the driver that hits a vehicle from behind is presumed to be responsible. The at fault driver may claim that the driver in front cut him or her off, stopped short, or had pre-existing injuries in attempt to defend or limit liability.Frequently, injured drivers are not able to recover their losses in a rear-end collision without expert legal representation.
Intersection accidents commonly referred to as "t-bone" traffic accidents, frequently occur at intersections. Often, fault is clear simply based on how a side-impact accident occurred. A driver may have ran a red light, raced through a stop sign or just didn't look carefully enough before proceeding through an intersection. Unfortunately, there are times the at fault driver might claim that he or she had the right of way, and that you were at fault. It is important to evaluate the scene and gather necessary evidence. For example, there might not be skid marks on the road because the at fault driver did not slow down, or skid marks which are longer than usual due to the at fault driver traveling too fast before the crash.Cases involving a t-bone accident often require aggressive legal representation work to determine responsibilityFinding the right lawyer to argue your claim is essential.
Head-on collision or frontal crashcan cause devastating injuries and damages depending on the speed of the automobiles at the time of impact. Head-on crashes are often caused by drivers being distracted, falling asleep at the wheel, or under the influence of drugs or alcohol. Driving too fast for conditions or at dangerous speeds and unsafe passing are also causes of head-on crashes. It is not uncommon that insurance companies will try to find any reason to deny or limit your head-on collision claim.Unfortunately, injuries may frequently include broken bones, back and neck injuries, and can even lead to death. Because of theharsh nature of these crashes, it is important to find the best accident lawyer with the experience necessary to pursueyour head on collision claim.
Side-swipe car accidents can be some of the most devastatingof all car accidents. Often, side-swipe car accidents happen when drivers are passing on two-lane roads or fail to stay in their lane on streets and highways. Side-swipe collisions also occur when careless drivers strike vehicles on the side of the road. In the best case scenario, injuries are minor and the accident primarily results in property damage. Unfortunately, side-swipe accidents frequently cause broken bones, back and neck injuries, and can even lead to death. It takes more than figuring out whose fault a side-swipe accident will be to settle these claims. Hiring a skilled personal injury attorney knowledgeable in the unique laws of Florida is one of the best decisions drivers can make after suffering a side-swipe accident.
Roll-over accidents and crashes are among the most deadly in the United States, where injuries are practically unavoidable. A roll-over can happen when a vehicle is struck from the rear or side-swept off the road, or when a vehicle crosses out of the lane of traffic head-on into other cars.Poorly constructed roads and unforeseen obstacles can put drivers in dangerous situations where a roll-over accident is unavoidable.Even in the most mild of roll-over accidents in which a vehicle does not completely overturn, critical and fatal injuries may occur to occupants. Accidents that cause serious injury are a challenge to win on your own. Injuries can be long-lasting with ongoing medical bills, therapy, and permanent injury. Ensuring your long-term health and well-being is the best reason you should retain a car accident attorney with a track record of winning roll-over car accident cases.
Multi-Vehicle collisions often involve more than just two vehicles. Some of the most common accidents, like rear-end collisions, often involve numerous drivers. For this reason, settling a multi-vehicle accident can be immensely complex. Different situations can result in more than one driver being at fault, and injuries can happen to passengers, drivers, and even pedestrians because of the collision. Injuries to the neck, back, spine, and head are common. It’s not unusual for drivers injured in a multi-vehicle accident caused by the negligent action of another person to lose benefits. Insurance companies are always looking to settle claims for as little as possible, and unfortunately at times, insurance adjusters try to take advantage of unsuspecting victims. This is why finding the right lawyer to argue your claim is essential. Cases involving numerous vehicles will require extensive legal work to determine responsibility.Too often, injured drivers are unable to recover what they lost in a multi-vehicle collision without expert legal representation.

How to Choose the Right Car Accident Lawyer

Looking for the best car accident lawyer in Florida to represent you in your car accident claim is like looking for a needle in a haystack. Many lawyers out there offer the same “high quality legal services” and reassuring promises of “exceptional case results,” but not many of them actually deliver. So how can you tell which lawyer is the real deal? Here are some tips when looking for a truly qualified attorney:


Your Car Accident Lawyer Specializes

Would you hire an interior decorator to fix your car? Would you hire a car mechanic to design your home? The answer to both questions is probably, no.

A lawyer who specializes in car accident law will be able to best assist you with your options and inform you of your legal rights.

Hiring a lawyer who lacks the financial resources to fund cover the charges related to you case may result in a compromised claim.

The right attorney for you should have a reputation for maintaining close communication with their client. A good car accident attorney will have clear and transparent communication with you about the progress of your case.

Do I Have Grounds for a Car Accident Claim?

The causes of some car accidents are obvious, like the typical rear-end collision in which the rear driver is almost always at fault. Lots of other accidents are more challenging to determine who was at fault. Sometimes, more than one driver is responsible, and in other cases, the responsible party might not be obvious at first. For example, improperly repaired roads or malfunctioning intersection lights can result in a car collision involving more than one responsible party. These types of accidents are very common, and it can be a challenge to determine whether to file a claim for damages.

According to the Florida Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles, state agencies reported a total of 400,863 car accidents in 2019. Not all of those accidents resulted in personal injury claims, but many did. In all, FLHSMV reported over 250,000 injuries that year. But how do you know if you have grounds to file a claim for personal injury due to a car accident in Florida? What happens if you file a claim only to find out your claim isn’t valid?

The best decision you can make following a car accident in which you or a loved one is injured is to reach out to an experienced lawyer for help. Unfortunately, many people make the decision to file claims without an attorney only to be take advantage of insurance companies and denied their benefits. Worse, too many people decide that filing an injury claim isn’t worth the hassle and either pay out of pocket or live a life of pain. Many others are concerned that they may be found at fault for the accident, even when they know it wasn’t their fault.

Florida’s comparative negligence law allows for adjustments when determining responsibility for an accident. When the injured person is found to be partially at fault, benefits they can claim will be reduced or "offset." Far too often, injured people decide it isn’t worth the risk to file a claim because it’s partially or mostly their fault the accident happened.

Our lawyers often hear from people that thought they shouldn’t file a claim only to realize the potential value of their case is greater than initially thought.
