Common Car Accident Injuries in Pembroke Pines, FL
Aggressive Lawyers for Car Accident Injuries in Pembroke Pines, FL
Recovering from car accident injuries can require time, patience and, in many cases, a substantial amount of help. Your treating physician and other medical professionals devote themselves to making sure your physical recovery proceeds in the best possible way, and your friends and loved ones can help provide support in accomplishing everyday activities that may no longer be possible because of your car accident injuries. At Lawlor, White & Murphey, our experienced team of car accident lawyers are here to help with the financial aspects of your recovery.
When a third party’s negligent or reckless driving causes you to suffer car accident injuries in Pembroke Pines, justice dictates that you should be entitled to recover compensation for those injuries. Even if you have comprehensive health insurance and car insurance, when car accident injuries are serious, these insurance policies often cover only a portion of your actual damages. Our lawyers are here to help win a compensation award that fully accounts for the car accident injuries that you have suffered through no fault of your own.
Serious Car Accident Injuries
Car accident injuries can make it impossible for you to work, but can also make it more difficult to complete routine, everyday tasks like getting dressed and bathing. Our personal injury lawyers have successfully represented clients who have suffered car accident injuries ranging from the relatively minor to the extremely complex and lasting injuries that can significantly impact your life, including cases involving:
- Traumatic brain injuries
- Spinal cord injuries
- Back injuries, such as injuries to the discs or muscles
- Neck injuries
- Concussions and other head injuries
- Broken bones and joints
- Organ damage
- Amputations and loss of limbs
- Wrongful death
Medical care and rehabilitative treatment can be surprisingly expensive, and the costs only increase in proportion to the severity of your car accident injuries. We will fight to reach a compensation award that accounts for all of these expenses, including the cost of:
- Ongoing medical treatment and doctor visits
- Reconstructive or corrective surgeries
- Medical devices
- Prescription medication
- Physical therapy
- And more
Holding Negligent Drivers Financially Responsible for Car Accident Injuries
We always emphasize how important it is for our potential clients to seek medical care as soon as possible after an accident. Many injuries might not present easy-to-read symptoms immediately, but a medical professional has the tools necessary to fully evaluate your condition to make sure you receive the treatment for your car accident injuries as soon as possible. We have several different avenues that we can explore under Florida law in order to recover compensation for your injuries, including:
- Your own car insurance. Because Florida is a no-fault state, we will first look to your own insurance for compensation for your car accident injuries.
- The at-fault driver’s insurance. If your expenses exceed the limits of your insurance policy, we can then pursue a claim against the at-fault driver’s policy.
- A lawsuit. Florida only requires Pembroke Pines drivers to carry $10,000 in personal injury protection coverage. In many cases, even the full amount of two insurance policies is insufficient to cover expensive and extensive medical care for your car accident injuries. In these cases, we can pursue legal action to recover the remaining damages.

Frequently Asked Questions About Pembroke Pines, FL Car Accident Injuries
FAQ: What is a compulsory medical exam? What do I need to know about these exams?
In some car accident cases, the insurance companies will send their own hired physicians to conduct a medical examination of a car accident victim when they are attempting to minimize their liability for car accident injuries. Often, only a handful of the same doctors conduct these exams repeatedly, and their results predictably may attempt to minimize your injuries. If you are required to submit to a compulsory medical exam, it is important that you remember that the physician is not your doctor—and you can tell that doctor as little as possible. Avoid making statements about the accident in general, or even making any unnecessary statements at all as you never know how the doctor may use those statements against you. One tactic that we can use to minimize the results of that exam is visiting your actual doctor on the same day—that way, we can obtain an almost real-time comparison of the two doctors’ results and opinions.
FAQ: How can a judge determine how much compensation I should receive for my car accident injuries?
With experience, our lawyers have learned how to go about estimating your future costs of care—and because medicine and the effectiveness of any given treatment program are never certain, most cases do involve an estimate. Importantly, we have the resources necessary to make sure our estimates are educated. We consult with your treating physician and medical experts in order to evaluate potential contingencies for the future and how much the total cost of your recovery might be. Every case will depend upon the specific facts and the extent of your car accident injuries, so call our offices today so that we can begin building a more customized case for you.
