Car Accident Lawyers Hollywood, FL

Top Rated Personal Injury Lawyers Fight for Clients Injured in Hollywood, FL Car Accidents

Car accidents are an unfortunately common occurrence in Hollywood—the combination of several major roadways that run through the area, popular tourist destinations and Hollywood’s close proximity to busy Miami create road hazards that residents encounter on a daily basis. Adding careless drivers into the mix only magnifies the likelihood that you will, at some point, be involved in a car accident in South Florida. When this happens, Florida’s no-fault insurance law provides that your own personal car insurance policy will shoulder the burden of paying to fix the resulting damages—but what happens when your policy coverage limits are maxed out and you still have medical bills to pay?

While no-fault insurance laws have their benefits, “no-fault” does not mean that the person whose negligent or reckless actions caused your car accident cannot be held financially responsible for their mistakes. At Lawlor, White & Murphey, our experienced car accident lawyers are dedicated to making sure you get the compensation you need when you suffer injuries in a car accident in Hollywood or the surrounding communities. Your first consultation is always free, so contact us today so that we can go to work advocating to secure compensation on your behalf.

Securing Fair Compensation for Hollywood, FL Car Accident Victims for a Combined 55 Years

Most clients who suffer severe injuries in a car accident quickly learn that their health insurance and personal injury protection (PIP) coverage are insufficient to fully compensate for those injuries—even when only considering the cost of necessary medical treatment and rehabilitative care. Medical treatment in this country is regrettably expensive, and if your injuries are severe enough, you may be unable to work for a period of time and could even lose your job and health coverage.

At Lawlor, White & Murphey, we realize what you’re facing, and we share your frustration. Despite the inequity of the situation you are in, the reality is that the responsible party is not going to simply hand over the financial compensation that you need, and the insurance companies will do everything they can to avoid paying more than the bare minimum. This is where our experienced lawyers come in—we have the resources and knowledge needed to fight for your right to compensation, and we are also passionate about what we do. We work tirelessly to secure full compensation awards for our injured clients in Hollywood, including compensation for:

  • The full cost of your unreimbursed medical expenses
  • Anticipated future medical expenses
  • Rehabilitative care and physical therapy
  • Prescription drugs
  • In-home modifications and care
  • Medical devices, such as walkers, wheelchairs and prosthetics
  • Lost wages, including lost employment benefits such as health insurance
  • Lost earning capacity for injuries that cause damage that is likely permanent
  • Pain and suffering
  • Travel expenses, which can become especially relevant if you were a visitor to the area or need specialized care outside of Hollywood
  • Loss of enjoyment of life
  • And more

Hopefully, you were lucky enough to leave the accident with injuries that will heal with time and proper care. Unfortunately, not all car accident victims are so lucky, and many will face an ongoing struggle as they return to a “new normal” of daily living. Every injury case is different, and we will investigate comprehensively and consult with medical and financial experts to estimate the future cost of your injuries so that you can focus on the future.

Frequently Asked Questions About Car Accidents in Hollywood, FL

FAQ: How can my lawyer impact the amount of compensation that I recover in a Hollywood car accident case?

Choosing the right lawyer can make all the difference in making sure you get the financial compensation you need after a car accident in Florida. Our state only requires that drivers carry $10,000 in PIP coverage—and that limit is a cap on the insurance company’s liability, meaning that the insurance company will not automatically hand over $10,000. In the case of Lawlor, White & Murphey, our car accident lawyers have developed a reputation for our high-quality legal representation in the South Florida community—and the insurance companies know that we will not back down. We understand the system, and we know the tactics that insurance companies and defense attorneys will employ to minimize their financial liability in every single case. We also have significant contacts within the medical community, so that we can retain experts to testify as to what your injuries will really cost.

FAQ: What if more than one person caused my accident?

Under Florida’s comparative negligence system, a responsible party can seek compensation from other parties who were also at fault for the car accident. You can seek compensation from multiple at-fault parties, as well, and your total compensation award may be divided according to the percentage of fault assigned to each party.
