Florida Injury Lawyers Provide Honest and Smart Legal Advocacy for Miramar Car Accident Victims

Recovering after a car accident can be a long and painful road—and when you’re at the beginning of that road, it can be very tempting to accept the initial settlement award presented by the insurance company. After all, you need money to pay your bills and cover medical expenses while you recover.

Our Miramar, Florida car accident lawyers understand this temptation and know that you need compensation to move forward. Despite this, perhaps the most important piece of advice that we can give to car accident victims is to consult with an experienced lawyer who can help evaluate whether an offer will be sufficient to cover both your current and future costs. If another person’s negligence caused your accident, we may be able to explore additional options to make sure you get the full compensation to which you are entitled.

We realize the importance of choosing the right car accident lawyer to advocate on your behalf—and we know how the level of compensation we are able to recover will impact your future. This is why we take each and every car accident case seriously and dedicate all of our resources to fighting resolutely for our Miramar clients’ rights throughout the entire legal process. While we have been nationally recognized by forums like Super Lawyers and have an exceptional AVVO rating, we have also recovered over $100 million in compensation to help our injured clients recover. Call us today to see how we can help win the compensation you need in your case.

Common Causes of Miramar, Florida Car Accidents

Determining who or what caused your car accident is the first step in recovering the monetary compensation you need to help in your recovery. In some cases, the cause of an accident may be clear—a driver who ran a red light and slammed into your car, or someone who rear-ended you at a stop sign. In other cases, it can take a detailed investigation to determine exactly what happened to cause your accident, especially if you never saw the accident coming.

Miramar-area car accidents are frequently caused by:

  • Driver distraction,
  • Traffic violations, such as speeding or running a red light,
  • Drunk or drugged driving,
  • Aggressive driving,
  • Hazards in the roads,
  • Poor weather conditions,
  • Improper vehicle maintenance,
  • Failure to check blind spots,
  • A malfunction or defect in the car itself.

Frequently Asked Questions About Car Accidents in Miramar, Florida

FAQ: How does my car insurance company evaluate how much compensation I might recover after an accident?

Car insurance companies take an extremely formulaic approach to determining the level of compensation to which you might be entitled after a car accident. They have computer models that evaluate most aspects of your case, schedules that apply to how much doctors can charge for care, and an overall reasonableness standard—and in the end, your own personal injury protection (PIP) coverage will only reimburse you for a portion of your costs. We take a different approach, focusing primarily on the human aspects of how your car accident impacted your life and your future. If you have sustained injuries in a car accident, you may be entitled to recover compensation beyond what your own coverage will provide under Florida’s no-fault insurance law, so call us today so we can help explore your options.

FAQ: What kinds of car insurance do drivers in Florida have to buy?

Since Florida is a no-fault state, drivers are required to carry certain minimum levels of car insurance that will cover both personal injuries and property damage caused by a car accident. Drivers must have $10,000 minimum in both types of coverage, although some drivers choose to take the risk of driving while underinsured or uninsured, making it important that you consider purchasing uninsured motorist coverage in addition to your minimum insurance requirements.
