Car accidents are a part of daily life in Florida. According to the Florida Department of Motor Vehicles, there were 235,461 car accidents in Florida in 2010. Those accidents resulted in 2,444 fatalities and 195,104 injuries. If you or a member of your family is injured in a Florida Car Accident, it is important that you obtain a Florida Personal Injury Attorney who can help you obtain the compensation you need so you can recover.
At DRG Firm, we understand that any accident, no matter the amount of damage or level of injury, can be truly upsetting. The added stresses of fixing or replacing your vehicle, obtaining treatment for your injuries, coping with pain and discomfort and missing time at work can all be overwhelming. It is our mission to guide you through this difficult process so you can get back to your life.
In Florida, car accident victims first look to their own insurance companies for compensation under no-fault insurance. You may be compensated under your insurance policy up to an amount of $10,000, which may include 80% of all reasonable expenses on medically necessary devices and services, as well as 60% of any loss of gross income and loss of earning capacity per individual. When serious injury or death is involved, however, victims may be entitled to recover additional damages from the driver who is at fault for causing the accident. These damages may include compensation for pain, suffering, mental anguish, and inconvenience.
If you are unsure whether your injuries are within the statutory definition of “serious,” are considering pursuing a claim against another driver, or want to make certain your insurance company is paying you all you are entitled to, it is important that you contact a Florida attorney to discuss your claim. A South Florida Car Accident Attorney at DRG Firm will work with you to answer all of your questions, and to help you obtain the damages award you need.
While Florida law requires all licensed drivers to maintain car insurance, the necessary minimums are rather low. The state requires drivers carry $10,000 Personal Injury Protection and $10,000 property damage liability. Drivers who carry this minimum level of insurance (or worse, those who carry no insurance at all) may not be able to cover all of the damages to which you are entitled. In that case, it will be necessary to act quickly to ensure you can recover from the assets of the at-fault driver. While adding Uninsured Motorist (UM) or Underinsured Motorist (UIM) coverage to your own insurance policy can eliminate this risk, if an accident has already occurred it is too late for these options.
It is so critical to let the Miami area injury attorneys at DRG Firm help you through every step of the legal process from the very beginning. In Florida, there are important laws that can limit the amount of recovery you are eligible to receive in a lawsuit. An attorney will insure that claims are filed on time, that key evidence is preserved, and that you are prepared to face insurance companies and the attorneys of others involved in the accident.
