Pompano Beach Car Accident Lawyers

Veteran Car Accident Lawyers Fight to Get Justice for Pompano Beach Car Accident Victims

When you sustain injuries in a car accident in Pompano Beach, and that accident was caused by someone else’s negligent behavior, you legally have the right to recover compensation for all expenses that result from the accident.  However, even what appears to be a cut-and-dry rear-end car accident case can present significant complications on the road to obtaining a compensation award that fully accounts for the cost of your injuries. Insurance carriers may challenge the cause of your injuries or refuse to make full payment for the cost of treatment that you will need in the future.  

At Lawlor, White & Murphey, P.C., no car accident case is too simple, and none are too complex for our experienced car accident lawyers. Our dedicated car accident lawyers are here to fight to ensure you get every dollar that you are entitled to receive because of injuries caused by someone else’s negligent behavior. 

How to Protect Your Rights After a Car Accident in Pompano Beach

Although the most important step that you can take after you have been involved in a Pompano Beach car accident is to obtain medical treatment as soon as possible, there are steps that you can take at the scene of the accident to preserve evidence while waiting for transportation to a physician.  Evidence that can prove helpful in working to establish your right to full compensation at a later date includes:

  • Photos and videos.  If you are able to use your smartphone, take photos and videos of the accident scene, vehicles involved in the crash and your injuries, if they are apparent.
  • Personal testimony.  If another vehicle stopped to help after your car accident, get the name and contact information of those witnesses, who may have had a much better view of the accident and what happened.
  • Official reports.  It is important to contact the police immediately after you have been in an accident in order to create an official report.  The police will take detailed notes about the appearance of the accident scene and make a determination as to what likely caused the accident.  While this is not conclusive, it can be helpful.

After you have left the scene of the car accident, it can also be useful to take notes about the accident and your injuries, including keeping records of any prescribed treatment and how your recovery is progressing.  This can provide additional evidence to assist your car accident lawyer in preparing the most compelling possible argument for compensation in your case.

Reputable Car Accident Lawyers Relentlessly Pursue Options for Recovering Fair Compensation for Pompano Beach Car Accident Victims

At Lawlor, White & Murphey, P.C., we have the experience necessary to succeed in complex car accident cases.  We explore every potential option for recovering full compensation in your case from the available insurance coverage and via a personal injury lawsuit if necessary.  Available compensation may include:

  • Tangible compensatory damages.  These economic damages include medical expenses already incurred, lost wages, property damage claims and other out-of-pocket expenses related to the car accident.
  • Intangible compensatory damages.  Another form of economic damages includes expenses and losses that you have yet to incur—such as the cost of future medical care and ongoing physical therapy and lost future earning potential.
  • Non-economic damages.  This category of compensation includes compensation for pain and suffering, emotional distress, loss of consortium and other related expenses.

Frequently Asked Questions About Pompano Beach Car Accident Cases

FAQ: Why is it so important to consult with medical experts in order to make sure I get a fair compensation award after a car accident?

In car accident cases involving severe injuries, your case will likely be settled well before your medical treatment ends—and once we agree to a settlement award, we cannot later go back and ask for additional compensation if you later incur additional expenses.  Even if your injuries were not permanent, ongoing medical treatment, physical therapy, and other rehabilitative care may be necessary for years into the future. A well-respected medical expert can provide valuable evidence about the anticipated cost all future care related to your car accident and injuries to make sure you aren’t left with additional uncompensated expenses in the future.

FAQ: Do I have to seek medical treatment within a certain time frame after a car accident?

Florida enacted a new law that requires you to seek medical treatment within 14 days following a car accident for personal injury protection (PIP) benefit purposes.  If you fail to do so, this does not necessarily foreclose your right to recover compensation for injuries that you sustained in the car accident. Despite this, it is always advisable to seek medical treatment as soon as possible after a car accident—immediately afterward, if possible.  Unless you receive a comprehensive medical checkup, it can be difficult for you to know whether you are suffering from some sort of internal injury that could manifest itself later and cause you to suffer even more severe physical injury.
