Fair Compensation for Injuries Sustained in a Coral Springs Car Accident
Getting fair compensation for your medical care is important. It’s also important that your lawyer fully understands how your injuries impact your life. We get to know our clients so that we can do just that—and fight for a compensation award that also covers your pain, inability to work or engage in the activities you enjoyed before the accident.
Every car accident case is different, and we give each case the time and attention needed to get fair compensation. Depending upon your injuries, fair compensation may include compensation for:
- Medical expenses,
- Future medical care, including rehab,
- In-home care while you recover,
- Wages you lost during your recovery time,
- Future lost wages if you are unable to return to work in the same capacity,
- Lost employment benefits,
- Property damage,
- Pain and suffering,
- Emotional distress,
- And more.
Many Coral Springs accident victims find themselves evaluating a settlement offer from an insurance company after a car accident.

Because we work on a contingency basis—meaning we don’t collect attorneys’ fees unless we win for you—and we provide a free initial consultation, there’s no risk in getting our advice. Call today to tell us what happened in your car accident.
Understanding Your Right to Insurance-Based Compensation After a Car Accident
Florida is a no-fault insurance state. Most car accident victims know that means they first make a claim with their own insurance company. However, even if you have paid your car insurance premiums and maintained full coverage, your insurance company might not offer you a fair settlement award. Here are some examples of problems you could face:
- Your coverage may be insufficient to cover the cost of your injuries, especially if they were serious or permanent.
- Your insurance company could challenge how your injuries were sustained or the documentation you have provided.
- You may be injured as a passenger in another person’s car or even in an accident involving an Uber or Lyft driver.
- You could be involved in a car accident with an uninsured or underinsured motorist who was at fault for the accident and needs help getting compensation through your uninsured/underinsured motorist insurance.
- You might be entitled to make a claim against the at-fault driver’s insurance company if your injuries satisfy Florida’s “serious injury” rule.

About Coral Springs, Florida
Coral Springs is located in Broward County, Florida, about 20 miles northwest of Fort Lauderdale. Coral Springs, which is known for low crime rates and a family-friendly environment, grew rapidly during the last three decades of the 20th century and now has a population of about 133,507. However, like much of South Florida, the Coral Springs area population expands with seasonal residents and tourists who visit for the winter months.
Historically, Coral Springs was located in a very marshy area. In the late 1940s, however, much of the area was drained to function as farmland and an extensive canal system was designed to prevent future floods. As recently as 2012, Coral Springs was named 3rd in Florida among the best places to live by Money Magazine.
Frequently Asked Questions About Coral Springs Car Accident Claims
FAQ: What if the person who caused my car accident did not act intentionally? Can I still recover compensation from the at-fault driver for my serious injuries?
Yes. Car accident claims are almost always based on negligence—which basically means careless driving. Every driver who gets behind the wheel in Coral Springs has an implied duty to drive carefully. That means all drivers are responsible for obeying traffic laws, and not texting while driving or driving under the influence of alcohol. Drivers can even be held financially responsible for simply failing to pay attention to the road.
FAQ: How can you prove that someone else was careless and caused my car accident?
Our investigation and research are often key to getting the evidence needed to support a car accident claim. We speak with witnesses and examine the accident scene, damaged vehicles, and police reports to get a sense of what happened. In more complex cases, we may work with accident reconstruction specialists to get evidence about the potential speed, timing, and distances involved. The type of injuries you sustained and the condition of the vehicles themselves can also provide important evidence.
