Frequently Asked Questions About Pembroke Pines, FL Car Accidents
FAQ: How much compensation can I recover after my Pembroke Pines car accident?
This is a very common question, and the answer will depend primarily upon the following factors, among others depending upon the circumstances: (1) the extent of your unreimbursed medical expenses, (2) the cost of future care, including rehab, medical devices and prescription drug requirements, (3) how much income you lost because of the recovery, (4) whether the injury was severe enough to prevent you from returning to your former employment, (5) how much your injury impacted your life in general, (6) the type of conduct that caused the car accident. By getting to know our clients, we gain more insight into the types of compensation that may be available in your specific car accident case.
FAQ: I’ve been trying to recover compensation from my own insurance company after a car accident that was caused by someone else. Why is it so complicated?
Under Florida’s no-fault insurance law, your own car insurance will apply for relatively inexpensive injuries and damage even if someone else caused the accident. Despite the fact that you pay for this coverage, the insurance company still wants to minimize their total financial liability. So many car accident victims think that their own insurance company will be on their side, but this is not always the case, which is why it’s important to retain an experienced car accident lawyer who actually is on your side.
