Brickell has been built up in part because people wanted a vehicle-free lifestyle. However, as the population of Brickell has exploded, people can never seem to escape the dominance of the car. Vehicles are in Brickell at all hours of the day as the area is now a hot spot, causing backups on the approach to the Brickell Ave. Bridge that infuriate drivers. The roads in Brickell were obviously not designed with the thought that the area would become the home to over 30,000 people living in clusters of large high-rises.
This poses dangers for those who are brave enough to drive in Brickell. In general, Miami has a reputation as one of the more traffic-clogged metropolises in the country. Add to the mix all of the trucks on their way from PortMiami, and area roads are difficult at best during rush hour. Oftentimes, the combination of traffic and careless drivers leads to almost 200 accidents each day in Miami-Dade County alone.
Some of these crashes are minor, and both drivers are able to walk away from them with only damage to their vehicles. Unfortunately, many of these crashes result in some level of injury for drivers and their passengers. When that happens, they end up needing both the healthcare and the legal system to help them.
Many car accidents that result in injury are one of the driver’s faults. The common causes of injury-causing car accidents are:
Several things must happen for your side of the story to determine whether you can receive compensation for your injuries:
If you can do both, you may be in a position to receive financial compensation. The test requires that you show that the other driver acted unreasonably. In a car accident case, there are two insurance companies involved: yours and that of the other driver. The insurance company for the responsible driver may challenge your side of the story. This is why you need an attorney to help you present your claim. Not only does a lawyer make your life easier, but they could be an effective advocate when the insurance company looks to pad their profits at your expense.
If the insurance company will not pay fair value on your claim, you may need to file a lawsuit in your case. This does not guarantee that you will have a trial. You can always continue to negotiate right up until the end of the trial. In fact, most car accident cases reach a settlement at some point instead of going to trial. Nonetheless, you are best off with an attorney by your side, so you always have the option of filing a lawsuit if necessary.
There are numerous elements that could be a part of your car accident claim. They include:
Pain and suffering are one of the larger parts of your damage award. The question is how to show the insurance company what you experienced. In this case, your attorney would present your medical records and diagnosis. The insurance company would assign a multiplier to your medical costs. Of course, this multiplier would probably be lower than what you think.
