Car Accidents  Help Is Just a Call Away

Wellington Car Accidents Lawyer

The modern motor vehicle is pretty incredible, and has certainly transformed our communities, where we live and work, and our lifestyles. But as miraculous and convenient as cars are, the average car weighs at least 4,000 pounds. This means that when two cars collide, especially when traveling at high speeds, there is a significant amount of force involved. Car accidents are a leading cause of injury and death in Florida and throughout the United States.

At the offices of Smith, Ball & Báez Injury Lawyers, our Wellington car accident lawyers are here to support you if you’ve been in a serious car accident. Call our law firm today to learn more about how we can help.

Liability for a Car Accident in Wellington

In most states in the nation, drivers who cause accidents are responsible for paying for them. This is not always the case in Florida, though, which maintains mandatory no-fault car insurance laws. Under the state’s no-fault policy, all drivers are required to carry Personal Injury Protection (PIP) coverage, which pays for injuries to themselves and others in their vehicle in a crash regardless of fault. This means that even if you cause a crash, you can turn to your PIP coverage for compensation.

That being said, PIP coverage isn’t always enough to pay for the full value of a victim’s losses. When the “serious injury threshold” is met in Florida, a claimant can step outside of the no-fault system and bring a claim for damages against the responsible driver. Liability for damages is typically based on negligence – the failure to exercise the required degree of care.

Damages Recoverable in a Wellington Car Accident Claim

  • Medical expenses, including future medical expenses;
  • Lost wages; including future lost wages;
  • Property damage costs;
  • Pain, suffering, emotional distress, and other non-economic losses.

Why You Should Work with a Wellington Car Accident Lawyer

After a serious car accident, recovering your full settlement amount is incredibly important. While you may want to believe that your insurance adjuster is on your side–and while the insurance adjuster will likely pretend to be your friend–the reality is that the insurance company wants to reduce the value of your claim as much as possible. To do this, your injuries might be disputed, the insurance company may blame you for the accident, or you may be told that your policy doesn’t cover certain losses. When you work with a Wellington car accident lawyer, you’ll have someone on your side who’s able to defend you and fight back against unfair or unscrupulous claims.
