Many car accident victims make the mistake of not speaking to an attorney, and as a result they receive a far smaller settlement than their case is truly worth. The Miami Car Accident Attorneys of Madalon Law will explain and defend your rights in your personal injury case. We offer a free initial consultation, and take cases on a contingency-fee basis, meaning we don’t get paid until you receive your settlement.
Accidents in Miami
With all of the tourists and busy commuting locals in Miami and surrounding areas, accidents involving motor vehicles have become all too common. The Florida Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles annual report on Florida Traffic Crash Statistics showed an average of 646 car crashes each day in the state – equal to 27 Florida motor vehicle accidents every hour of every day. Even worse, well over half of the car crashes in the state resulted in personal injury or fatality to those involved.
Miami car accidents may occur as the result of many circumstances, but in most instances they are the unacceptable result of poor decision making on the part of one or more drivers. Drunk drivers, or those under the influence of drugs, are most often the cause of car crashes resulting in personal injury or fatality. Other accidents are caused by reckless or negligent driving, including:
- Failure to yield the right-of-way
- Failure to stay in the proper lane
- Falling asleep behind the wheel
- Texting or other electronic use while driving
- Road Rage
The Insurance Adjuster is Not Your Friend
When an accident is another driver’s fault, that driver’s auto insurance should pay for the victim’s medical costs and many other losses they may incur. But insurance companies want to pay out as little as possible. An insurance representative for the responsible party in a car accident will often present you with complex, confusing, and incomplete information in hopes that you will accept a settlement without fully understanding the worth of your claim.
It is crucial that you never accept a settlement before speaking to an experienced car accident attorney. A skilled attorney can help you obtain the compensation you are entitled to. You may be able to receive compensation for:
- Ambulance expenses
- Hospital and other medical bills
- Damage to your vehicle and other property
- Future care costs
- Pain and suffering
- Lost earning potential in the case of disability or death
