If you have been injured in a car crash in Florida, you are entitled to recover money damages for the full extent of your loss. This includes economic damages such as medical bills in the past and future, as well as loss of income in the past and future. You can also recover compensation for intangible damages such as physical pain, emotional pain, and suffering. If you suffer any permanent scarring or loss or impairment of any important bodily function, you are entitled to compensation for those damages as well.
The lawyers and staff at Bernstein & Maryanoff have the resources and experience to help you pursue the maximum compensation for your losses. With a principal office in Miami, numerous other offices across Florida, and the willingness to make house calls, our lawyers will be there when you need them.
Florida law allows you to recover medical expenses and lost wages from your own auto insurance policy. Family members of a person who died in a fatal auto accident have a right to claim funeral expenses. As long as you or your loved one was not at fault for the accident, your insurance company is not permitted to raise your rates because you filed a claim. The at-fault driver and their insurance company are responsible for paying all damages in excess what your insurance will cover.
In Florida, you must have a permanent injury within a reasonable degree of medical probability to receive money damages from the at-fault driver and their insurance company. This doesn't mean you have to be on crutches or in a wheel chair. You can recover money damages for continuing pain or other medical problems that a doctor certifies in writing as permanent within a reasonable degree of probability.
The insurance company of the at-fault driver can pick a defense doctor to dispute whether or not you have a permanent injury. This doctor may claim that you do not have a permanent injury, or if you do have one, it is the result of a pre-existing problem or unrelated to the auto accident.
The amount of money you can recover in an auto accident case is based a number of variables, including which insurance company covers the at-fault vehicle. Successful negotiations between your lawyer and the insurance company are crucial, since a professional and complete presentation of your damages can help to settle the case without the need for a trial. A sophisticated attorney can convince the insurance company to pay the full amount of damages, based on a full and proper presentation of your case.
