If you have been in an accident in the Fort Lauderdale area, you may have suffered a personal injury that did not present symptoms until days or maybe even weeks after the accident. That is why it is so important to speak with an accident lawyer prior to accepting any settlements from an insurance company. Insurance companies often seek to settle accident claims in a hurry, but when you accept an initial offer for a settlement from an insurance company in the days following an accident, you must often cede any right to pursue further compensation, even if serious symptoms arise.
When you first meet with your Fort Lauderdale personal injury lawyer, your lawyer will thoroughly review your case and inquire as to the medical care you have received and what diagnostic tests were performed.…
If Fort Lauderdale residents have heard the question from friends and family who live elsewhere in the nation, they have heard it multiple times: What about the storms? It is not an unreasonable question despite the fact that those of us who live in the area may tire of hearing it. The fact is, we know that we live in an area that is susceptible to hurricanes and other tropical storms, which is why the majority of property owners in the area go to great pains to ensure that they have purchased appropriate and adequate insurance. That is why it can be incredibly infuriating when claims are denied after a storm does make landfall in the Fort Lauderdale area.…Read more

Ask Las Vegas residents and tourists alike what the most congested spot in the Valley is, and many will immediately respond: The Strip. The hotels, cars, pedestrians, cabs, limos, and buses that occupy The Strip make it arguably the most crowded stretch of road in the area.
Consequently, it is often the site of numerous accidents which then cause even more congestion as drivers slow to a near stop to gawk at the accident site. Unfortunately, such rubbernecking can cause a chain reaction of accidents that can result in personal injury or even death for victims. If you have been injured as the result of another driver’s distracted rubbernecking, a Las Vegas personal injury lawyer can help you to get whatever compensation you may deserve as a result of your injury.…
We have all heard the warnings regarding cell phone use and driving. Whether it is because of a call or a text, most drivers have, on one occasion or another, responded to one or the other. And, many drivers can also relate stories of near misses while they were distracted by cell phones. Unfortunately, many drivers can also tell of times when an accident ensued rather than a near miss. If you have been the victim of an accident in Deerfield Beach caused by a distracted driver, an injury lawyer can help you in your efforts to recoup whatever losses you may have incurred due to the accident and the injury that resulted.…Read more
If you talk to members of the Weston Police Department, watch the news, or read the newspaper, you will hear or see reports of a car accident at least every day, such that the accidents come to seem routine: just another collision, another report to write up, the same citations to write or charges to be filed. However, when you are the one who has suffered injuries in a wreck, it is anything but routine. It is a tragic, unsettling, and stress-filled event, and if you have been the victim of negligence or some other irresponsible driving, you deserve to be compensated for your very specific and very personal injuries. Often, however, it requires retaining a personal injury lawyer to ensure that your claim is treated as anything other than routine by the insurance company.…Read more
