Car Accidents  Help Is Just a Call Away

Car Accident Lawyers in Boca Raton

Holding Negligent Drivers Accountable

According to the Florida Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles, our state saw 400,576 car accidents in 2019. These collisions happened all over the state, with Palm Beach County seeing roughly 26,000 of them. Innocent motorists have suffered horrifying injuries and have been left to pay for expensive medical care on their own.

We can help. Our Boca Raton car accident lawyers assist victims as they navigate our state’s confusing no-fault insurance rules to obtain fair and just compensation. There is no reason to delay contacting us at (561) 500-HELP to begin working on your case.

Car Accident Injuries

Car accidents generate considerable force. This force can badly injure the human body, especially when people are not wearing seat belts.

Some of the more serious injuries our clients have suffered include:

  • Lacerations, cuts, and abrasions
  • Burns
  • Contusions
  • Sprains and strains
  • Fractures
  • Nerve damage
  • Back injuries
  • Head injuries
  • Concussions and other traumatic brain injuries
  • Spinal cord damage

Each year, almost 3,000 people die in Florida car accidents, leaving behind spouses, children, and other family members. These people are also deserving of compensation to help them recover from this devastating loss.

Typical Causes of Car Accidents

Car accidents can happen in driveways, parking lots, side streets, and on the highway. There are many causes, such as:

  • Distracted driving
  • Failure to yield
  • Speeding
  • Illegally passing
  • Impaired driving
  • Exhaustion
  • Carelessness
  • Confusion

The pace of modern life has only made riding in a vehicle more dangerous. Too many people are trying to multitask behind the wheel of a vehicle, and they are not giving their full attention to driving. Consequently, they can collide with other motorists.

Compensation in Your Time of Need

All people who register a vehicle should carry Personal Injury Protection benefits, called PIP. However, Florida only requires that motorists carry $10,000 in benefits, which is not nearly enough when someone has suffered a moderate or severe injury.

In the case of serious injuries, motorists might be able to file a lawsuit for compensation. They could receive damages for lost income, medical care, property damage, pain and suffering, and emotional distress. This is only fair since the person responsible for the accident should bear the financial burden caused by their negligent conduct.

However, obtaining compensation is not easy. The other motorist might not have liability coverage, which is not required to register a vehicle in Florida. You might also be fighting with an insurer to get benefits under an underinsured or uninsured motorist policy, which should pay out when you have uncompensated losses.

Motorists also need to receive prompt medical attention to qualify for PIP coverage. Florida law requires that you see a doctor or other medical professional within 14 days of the accident, otherwise you might not be covered. For these reasons, it is vital to reach out to a skilled Boca Raton car accident lawyer to discuss your options for obtaining money following a crash.
