Florida’s roads and highways can be dangerous, in fact, they are dangerous. Every single time you get into a car, whether you’re driving that car or not, you’re putting your life in danger. Accidents happen – and far too often. And many times we don’t know exactly what to do outside of calling 911 and seeing if our insurance companies can help. This uncertainty can oftentimes add more stress to an already stressful situation. This is why it’s important to call an experienced car accident lawyer after you’ve been in an accident.
Build a Case with Experts on Your Side
There are a multitude of reasons behind car accidents in Florida, including distracted or reckless driving, driving while intoxicated, falling asleep behind the wheel, and bad weather – to name just a few. Being a victim of any of these can definitely lead to a few months of conversing with insurance companies and more.
Oftentimes, car accident injuries are catastrophic, even deadly. But sometimes injuries may not show up until several months later. This is why it’s important to make sure you don’t take any chances. See a doctor after you’ve been in a car accident, whether you feel pain or not. This will help you start to establish a record of documents after your car accident.
Florida, a no-fault state, requires drivers to carry a minimum $10,000 Personal Injury Protection (PIP) auto insurance coverage, and no matter who’s at fault, PIP will compensate drivers. But depending on the severity of your injuries, oftentimes the funds aren’t enough to cover all of your medical/hospital bills, and loss of income, for example. You’re going to need help making sure that your case is handled quickly and effectively. You may be incapacitated and unable to work or return to any of your regular activities, for a long period of time and you need to make sure that you can take care of any financial obligations you may have.
