Coral Springs, Florida Car Accident Lawyer Andrew Rosenberg: Serving all of South Florida when Injured in Car Crashes
|Data from Florida Highway Safety & Motor vehicles|
Car accidents can be quite scary. In South Florida, car accidents are unfortunately very common. Whether you're rear ended, or involved in a far more serious accident, a car crash can be terrifying and stressful. Serious Florida car wrecks can result in broken bones, whiplash and soft-tissue injuries to your neck and back, and even more serious injuries that can result in surgeries or even amputations.
There were more than 100,000 car crashes in South Florida in 2020 alone (including Palm Beach, Broward and Miami-Dade counties). That's nearly 300 accidents in South Florida PER DAY. This is especially alarming, considering there were 341,320 car crashes in the entire state of Florida in 2020; which means 32% of all car crashes in Florida take place in the tri-county area of South Florida.
More than half of those car crashes included injuries. Nearly one-third of accidents unfortunately were hit-and-run car accidents. Nearly 7,000 of them included injuries. As car accident attorneys in South Florida, we often find that people think they can't get a personal injury attorney after a car crash if it was a hit and run - that is simply not the case. Even if you were injured in a hit-and-run accident, there are a few different ways that Rosenberg Law Firm can investigate to see if you're eleigible for compensation for your injuries,
Common Car Accident Injuries:
- Burn injuries: Some car accidents cause fires or explosions that result in painful and dangerous burns.
- Head injuries: Including concussions and traumatic brain injuries
- Back injuries
- Broken bones
- Permanent disability or paralysis
- Cuts, scrapes, bruises
- Wrongfull death
It's important to see a doctor for a prompt diagnosis and treatment plan after any motor vehicle accident. At first, you might not think you were injured, but some conditions take days or weeks to present symptoms. Seeing a doctor or even a chiropractor or other medical professional is important after a car crash. In Florida, the law gives you 14 days to see a state-approved doctor for accident-related injuries after a car accident. Not seeing a doctor within the required time window can affect your rights to compensation, so seeing a doctor or calling a personal injury attorney for steps on what to do next should be your first move after an accident.
Other Actions to Take After a Florida Car Accident
In addition to protecting your physical recovery by complying with your doctor’s treatment plan, it's important to protect your legal recovery. Certain things need to be done, including:
Gather evidence from your car accident.
- Pictures, witness statements, medical records, and other evidence will be important to your claim and potential compensation.
Identify all applicable insurance policies.
- Most car accident recoveries come from insurance coverage. It's important to identify all of the potential coverage reimbursements that may be applicable to your case so the right claims can be made. There are likely more options than you think.
Be cautious with insurance adjusters following a car accident.
- Adjusters have a job to do: minimize your settlement so the insurance company can maximize its profits. Despite how nice an adjuster may seem, remember that anything you say to him or her may be used against you.
File your car accident case before the statute of limitations expires.
- In most cases, you have 4 years from the date of your accident to file a case in a Florida court. However, you shouldn't wait that long. There are advantages to filing your claim closer to the date of your accident.
You don’t have to take on the burden of doing any of this yourself. Instead, you have the right to hire an experienced car accident lawyer to make sure all of your rights are protected.
