I-95 drivers through Hollywood are routinely frustrated by accidents that cause delays. Some serious multi-car crashes have led to shutdowns of this vital road. The issues do not get any better when drivers get off the interstate. Young Circle is one of the most dangerous areas in all of Broward County, with an average of more than one car accident per day there. Right outside of town, U.S. Route 441 and Pembroke Road is known as one of the most treacherous intersections in all of South Florida.
Every single one of these accidents has a human cost to it. Some of these crashes cause more than just property damage. Roughly one out of every three car accidents will cause physical injury. Drivers and their passengers do not always walk away from Hollywood car accidents unscathed. They could suffer injuries that could change the course of their lives. All of this could happen in an instant. Even if one can recover from their injuries, they may have to deal with quite a bit in the meantime. This could include:
The person responsible for your accident injuries must pay for all of this once you show that they were negligent. This is a legal term that has meaning. Specifically, it means that you have proven every element of a four-part test. These are:
Each of these four parts requires evidence to back up your claims. The most evidence will be required to prove the second prong. Showing that the other driver acted unreasonably requires that you have evidence of what happened to cause the crash. The insurance company needs more than just your word. The other driver has their own side of the story, and proof is what makes the difference.
The question is how you gather that evidence to include with any claim or lawsuit. You would do this by hiring an experienced attorney who knows how to quickly get to the bottom of car accident cases. With auto accidents, you have a limited amount of time to gather evidence because the scene is cleared and witnesses’ memories may fade.
This is why you cannot wait too long to begin the legal process. Otherwise, you may find that you have missed your window to obtain financial compensation. While you have four years after your accident to file a lawsuit in Florida, you do not want to wait that long to get started. The legal process takes time, and chances are that you will need the money long before then.
Medical care after your accident is also critically important. A healthcare professional should examine your injuries following an accident and provide a treatment plan. 388CEDA offers the following medical services:
