The leading cause of death in both Florida and nationally is car accidents. Auto accidents also happen to be the leading cause of traumatic brain and spinal cord injuries. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration estimates that Florida has one of the highest rates of traffic fatalities per year, recording approximately 2,600 deaths in 2010 alone.
A great majority of the car accidents that occur every year involve one or more vehicles, and thus, at least one or more negligent driver(s) is usually at fault. What happens when an individual in a car accident in Palm Beach or anywhere in Florida is injured by another's negligence? If you have been injured in a car accident in Fort Lauderdale or anywhere else in Florida, you may have wondered whether or not you should retain counsel at all.
The insurance industry estimates that when an injured accident victim retains a lawyer, the settlement value of any car accident claim increases fourfold. That is precisely the reason so many insurance companies essentially stalk accident victims in the hours and days following an accident – to prevent them from hiring an experienced personal injury attorney, essentially cutting their losses by cutting off the accident victim before they reach competent counsel.
There are a great number of reasons that it is important to seek legal counsel immediately following the incident. Having an experienced lawyer in your corner from the start that has experience handling similar auto accident cases can make all the difference throughout the claim process. For example, right after the accident, it is important that an injured driver do certain things immediately in order to protect their legal rights, preserve evidence, ultimately make a claim for reasonable compensation, and, if necessary, sue the insurance company after having been hurt in an accident.
Hiring an aggressive and experienced South Florida accident lawyer can help assure the best resolution for you. Make sure your auto insurance company is playing fair and the playing field is level, call a knowledgeable accident attorney as soon as possible after the accident.
