TYPES OF CAR ACCIDENTS
The personal injury attorneys of Madalon Law understand that each type of car accident must be approached differently in order to prove the negligence of the other party and seek the compensation the client truly deserves. Some of our best cases have included:
Rear end accidents are one of the most common types of car accidents in the country. These car accidents occur when the front of one vehicle hits the rear end of another vehicle. The severity of these accidents can vary based on the speed of the vehicle(s) when the collision happens. A rear end accident can range from a small “fender bender” to a collision resulting in a fatal car accident.
The Florida Turnpike, I-95, 595, I-75, the Sawgrass Expressway and any other Florida highway can seem more like an obstacle course than a roadway. Anyone familiar with these roads will agree it takes a certain level of skill to travel safely and avoid an accident. Unfortunately, even the most defensive driver may find themselves in a car accident when sharing the road with distracted drivers, motorists with bad driving habits, outdated roads and the construction zones needed to update the highways.
Nearly 40 percent of car accidents occur at an intersection. What makes these types of collisions so dangerous is that the point of impact usually involves the vulnerable area of the vehicle being hit. Even though this can happen anywhere in Florida, some of the most dangerous intersections are right here in Broward and Miami-Dade County.
Technology has helped our society become more efficient, as well as turned people into masters of multi-tasking. This sounds great until someone behind the wheel doesn’t have the reaction time needed to avoid an accident because their eyes were off the road. Even though texting and driving will always be dangerous, it is quickly becoming an outdated threat with all of the new distractions smartphones give us. From checking emails to Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and anything else that will only take a few seconds; we have to realize an accident only takes a few seconds as well.
Even though any type of car accident can be fatal if cars are traveling fast enough or collide in a certain way, some accidents result in fatalities more often than others. These can include head-on collisions, Vehicle rollovers, and vehicle malfunctions. You need to contact an attorney if you have lost a loved one and feel it may have been due to the negligence of another party.
DEALING WITH THE INSURANCE COMPANIES
One of the most common mistakes a person can make is to follow what seems like the natural steps and deal with the insurance company directly. What many fail to realize is that the insurance companies are not friends. Their goal is to settle your case with the lowest amount of money possible. In many cases, they achieve this because the person involved in the accident is not aware of what they are entitled to under the law and the steps needed to seek the proper financial compensation. The personal injury attorneys of Madalon Law know how to deal with insurance companies and have successfully fought for car accident victims throughout the State of Florida.
