How Auto Crashes Happen in Florida

The vast majority of motor vehicle collisions occur because a driver engaged in careless acts that constitute negligence for purposes of liability. You need to prove that the other motorist breached the duty to drive safely, and this misconduct was the direct cause of the accident. To better understand the concept of negligence, some examples may help.

You may be able to recover compensation when another driver:

  • Speeds in excess of the posted limit
  • Drives while drunk or under the influence of drugs
  • Fails to yield
  • Texts, talks on the phone, posts to social media, or uses a phone in other ways
  • Engages in other forms of distracted driving, like eating, drinking, or adjusting the radio
  • Improperly changes lanes
  • Runs red lights

Compensation for Victims of Car Accidents

Regardless of the specific causes of an auto crash, the legal process for recovering monetary damages is generally the same. You start by filing an injury claim with the responsible driver’s insurance company. Though it may seem as simple as filling out some forms, you could encounter challenges since insurers will always put the interests of the company before your own. You may need to file a lawsuit to enforce your rights if the insurer won’t agree to a settlement.

Our team at Smith, Ball & Báez will tackle all legal challenges to ensure you get fair, reasonable compensation for your auto crash losses, including:

  • Medical expenses
  • Lost income
  • Pain and suffering
  • Emotional anguish
  • Diminished quality of life
  • Many more, depending on your situation
