Comprehensive motor vehicle accident representation for all types of crashes
Car accidents happen every day with an estimated 250,000 vehicle crashes each year in Florida alone. The most common causes of automobile accidents include:
• Reckless or careless driving
• Road rage
• Distracted and negligent driving such as driving while texting, talking on the phone, talking to other passengers and putting on makeup
• Drunk driving
• Failing to follow posted warning signs
In many cases, car accidents also involve pedestrians and bicyclists and lead to significant injuries and even death. Regardless of what type of activity precipitated the accident, the at-fault driver is liable for both personal injuries and property damage caused as a result of the crash. After a car accident, it is important to take proactive steps to support your case. You should always report accidents to law enforcement to ensure that you have a formal accident report. Seeking assistance from an experienced accident attorney also places you in a better position to receive maximum damages as opposed to directly negotiating personally with the other driver or insurance company.
What type of insurance coverage are drivers required to have in Florida?
All drivers are required to have full liability insurance coverage at all times under the Florida Financial Responsibility Law. This coverage must include minimum limits of:
• $10,000 bodily injury per person
• $20,000 bodily injury per crash
• $10,000 property damage per crash
• $10,000 personal injury protection per person per crash
In addition to the required amounts of liability insurance coverage, you may still be able to recover damages for lost wages, medical expenses and pain and suffering. Our injury attorneys have significant experience working with insurance companies and developing strategies to ensure that you receive full and fair compensation for your injuries.
