Recovering Expenses After an Accident in Coral Springs

Even if your injuries initially seem minor, speaking with an experienced accident lawyer soon after your accident is the best way to protect your rights.  We can provide strategic guidance to help make sure your right to future compensation is protected. Under the laws in Coral Springs and South Florida, you may be entitled to compensation from multiple sources, including:

  • Your own personal injury protection (PIP) insurance policy under Florida’s no-fault insurance law,
  • The at-fault person’s insurance company if (1) your injuries were serious or permanent and (2) the other party was at least partly to blame for the accident,
  • A personal injury lawsuit if your injuries were particularly serious.

You may also be entitled to both expense reimbursement (called “economic damages”) and compensation for things like pain and suffering, emotional distress and loss of your loved one’s company or support.  Economic damages that you may be entitled to receive include:

  • Reimbursement for medical bills,
  • Emergency room and hospital costs,
  • Physical therapy costs,
  • Loss of wages and employment benefits,
  • Lost earning capacity in situations where your injury made it impossible for you to work, or required you to take a lower-paying job,
  • Our-of-pocket expenses, including transportation costs or the costs of modifying your home to accommodate a disability caused by the accident,
  • The cost of in-home care (including things like paying someone else to watch your children),
  • Property damage.

Victims of negligence who accept a settlement award without consulting with a lawyer first might find that the award is really less than their accident-related expenses.  At Gonzalez & Cartwright, P.A., our lawyers are here to level the playing field to help you get the money you deserve.

Determining what caused your accident is important because it can mean you may have the right to additional compensation.  For example, if a defective product caused your injuries, the manufacturer might be financially liable. If an at-fault driver was using drugs or alcohol during your car accident, you may have the right to pursue additional damages to punish that driver’s behavior.

Frequently Asked Questions About Coral Springs Personal Injury Claims

FAQ: I have four years to file a lawsuit based on my accident in Coral Springs. Why is it important to act now?

It is important to speak with a personal injury lawyer soon after an accident because:

-We may need to investigate to locate evidence to support your claim. That evidence may not be available if too much time has passed (video surveillance may be destroyed; witnesses may be difficult to locate).
-Additional timelines may apply. We can advise you about the need to seek medical care quickly in order to preserve your right to personal injury protection (PIP) coverage and other time limits that may apply in your case.
-To protect your right to full compensation, it is important to start building your case from the beginning—in part, by documenting how the injury has impacted your life from day one.

FAQ: What if I don’t think I can afford a lawyer?

Our lawyers work on a contingency basis, meaning you don’t have to pay us anything up front. In fact, you only pay our attorneys’ fees if we win compensation in your case. Studies show that accident victims with experienced legal help get an average of three times more in compensation than they would without a lawyer. Whether you need a lawyer will depend on your specific case—but your case review is free, so you have nothing to lose by getting our advice.
