Should I Get a Lawyer for a Car Accident That Is Not My Fault in Florida?
You definitely should get a lawyer for your car accident. The average injury-related hospital bill, when including physical therapy and other expenses, can be well over $50,000. While most health insurance companies will pay for injury-related costs after the Florida Personal Injury Protection is exhausted, there are still co-pays and deductibles and most families cannot possibly pay these staggering expenses out of pocket. So, these victims need financial compensation, pure and simple.
A Boca Raton car crash lawyer fights for the financial compensation you deserve. Furthermore, an attorney levels the playing field. The insurance company has a legal team that looks out for its interests. Unless you have legal representation, there’s very little chance of obtaining fair compensation, especially in a complex case. Typically, all vehicle collision claims are complex, even if they might appear straightforward to you.
Evidence May Become Overlooked
Initial facts are often inadequate. The police accident report is a good example. If the victim couldn’t give a statement, perhaps because the victim was seriously injured and taken to the hospital,, the report obviously only contains one side of the story. Furthermore, emergency responders aren’t on scene to gather evidence for a future civil claim. Since they have other priorities, they may overlook key evidence.
Another reason car wrecks are complex is that the tortfeasor (the negligent driver) is not always the only person who can be held financially responsible for damages. Employers, like shipping companies, taxi companies, and ridesharing companies might be held financially responsible for their employees’ negligence. Drivers who are independent contractors or owner-operators for tax purposes are usually employees for negligence purposes.
