Representing Florida Car Accident Victims
Florida is one of a dozen or so states that follow a no-fault insurance system for car accidents. This does not mean that fault is not important in a car accident case. It simply means that you will use your Florida PIP (personal injury protection) coverage for the first $10,000 in medical expenses.
If you have suffered a serious injury, your PIP coverage will not go far in paying for your damages, nor does it compensate you for your pain and suffering. At Schrier Law Group, we offer a free initial consultation to discuss your auto accident and determine if you have the right to seek additional compensation. We have offices in Miami, Fort Lauderdale, Orlando, Jacksonville, and Tampa.
Holding Negligent Drivers Accountable
Florida has one of the nation’s highest car accident rates. In just the first month of 2017, there were 25,274 collisions resulting in more than 15,000 injuries and over 150 fatalities.
Most accidents are not really “accidents.” They happen because a driver chose to do something that recklessly endangered others. They may have been texting or were otherwise distracted by a cellphone. They may have been driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol.
When a driver fails to exercise reasonable care while operating a car, our lawyers can hold them and their insurance company accountable. We will gather the evidence we need to build a strong case of liability against the other driver.
In some cases, the negligent party may be someone other than another driver. Here are two examples:
- Auto manufacturer liability — Examples of accidents due to manufacturing defects are injuries caused by defective Takata air bags or unintended acceleration in vehicles made by Toyota. If a defect in your car or the car in another vehicle contributed to a crash or the injuries you suffered in a crash, you can file a lawsuit against the manufacturer.
- Defective roadways — Faulty road design, construction or maintenance can cause accidents. Our lawyers will investigate embankments, medians, guardrails, barriers, speed bumps, road surface, hazard signage, stop and yield signs, and traffic lights to determine if they played a role in causing the accident.
Our lawyers will evaluate all possible sources of liability and insurance to recover the maximum compensation for you.
