Experienced Davie Car Accident Attorneys Handle All Types Of Car Accident Claims

Experienced car accident attorneys at Lawlor, White & Murphey handle all types of car accidents including the following:

Understanding Florida’s No-Fault Car Insurance Laws

Florida follows a “no-fault” car insurance system, specifying that the Personal Injury Protection (PIP) component of your car insurance will cover the medical bills and other losses of anyone covered under the policy. It does not matter who is at fault for the accident. However, PIP claims have policy limits and injured victims may not receive compensation for “pain and suffering” and other non-monetary damages that are the result of the accident.

To file a third-party insurance claim or a personal injury lawsuit against the at-fault driver to recover compensation for non-monetary damages, the victim’s injuries must meet the threshold established by state law for serious injuries. Florida’s no-fault car insurance laws and PIP insurance can be difficult to navigate. Experienced car accident attorneys at Lawlor, White & Murphey have in-depth knowledge of Florida’s personal injury claims process, and they offer a free case evaluation for car accident victims.

Recover Maximum Compensation For Your Davie Car Accident 

When you suffer injury in a car accident that was caused by another person’s negligent or reckless behavior, you may file a personal injury claim to pursue compensation for your injuries and other losses, known as “damages”. Some of the damages you may be entitled to receive include the following:

  • Bills for medical treatment
  • Hospital bills
  • Costs of surgical procedures
  • Cost of prescription medications
  • Cost of rehabilitation
  • Cost of physical therapy
  • Bills for lab work, imaging tests, and diagnostic scans
  • The cost of future anticipated medical expenses that are a result of the accident 
  • Emotional pain and suffering
  • Mental anguish
  • Loss of one’s life enjoyment
  • Loss of one’s quality of life
  • Loss of consortium
  • Loss of future earning capacity as a result of the injuries
  • Loss of income  
  • Loss of sick time  
  • Loss of earned vacation time 

The compensatory damages awarded in a personal injury claim are intended to compensate the injured person for the harm they endured as a result of the accident, and to restore that person to the condition they were in before the accident. Compensatory damages are not intended to punish the at-fault party. 

Some losses have an exact monetary value, such as the cost of medical treatment or hospital bills. Other losses, such as emotional pain and suffering, do not have an assigned value. For those losses, the Florida court will consider several different factors to assign a monetary value. 

Legal Time Limits For Filing A Davie Car Accident Claim

Every state sets forth legal time limits for filing claims in the state’s civil courts, known as “statutes of limitations”. In Florida, the statute of limitations for a personal injury claim is four years from the time of the accident. This four-year statute also applies to any lawsuit filed over damage to a vehicle stemming from the accident.

If the car accident resulted in the loss of life and the family of the victim opts to bring a wrongful death suit against the at-fault driver, the statute of limitations is different. Wrongful death claims must be filed within two years of the date of the victim’s death.

Hold The At-Fault Party Accountable For Your Davie Car Accident 

When you have been seriously injured in a car accident that was someone else’s fault, you have the right to hold the at-fault party accountable. At Lawlor, White & Murphey, our dedicated car accident attorneys work tirelessly on your behalf to do just that. Our experienced team is available to answer your questions and provide a free case evaluation so that you can make the most informed decision regarding your car accident claim.

Frequently Asked Questions About Car Accidents In Davie, Florida

FAQ: I was in a car accident and the other driver’s insurance company has offered me a settlement. Should I take it?

No. The best settlement offers are usually not the first offers on the negotiating table. Insurance companies frequently offer initial settlements that fall far below the compensation you rightfully deserve. Your doctor bills may continue to climb, and a low settlement offer will most likely not cover all of your medical expenses. It is in your best interests to speak with an experienced personal injury attorney regarding your car accident claim, and to obtain an estimate on the compensation you may expect to receive. The car accident attorneys at Lawlor, Whitney & Murphey offer a free case evaluation to accident victims.

FAQ: What happens if I cannot file my car accident claim before the statute of limitations runs out?

If your car accident claim is not filed before the statute of limitations expires, the Florida court will refuse to hear your case. Once your case has been dismissed by the court, you will have lost your opportunity to recover any damages.
