Florida drivers are known for being bad. Without making judgements about certain types of drivers, the factors in the state are in place for dangerous roads. The problem is even worse in Miami. The city is known for intense traffic and careless drivers.
Don’t just take our word for it. There is a reason why auto insurance premiums in Miami are among the highest in the country. Unfortunately, many Miami drivers view traffic laws as recommendations. This is why there are roughly 65,000 car accidents each year in Miami-Dade County.
It is not always apparent afterwards what happened in the car accident. The other driver may not say anything that would lead to their liability because they are worried about their own bottom line. Their insurance company may back them up because they do not want to write the check for your injuries. Fortunately for you, the other driver’s insurance company does not get the last word. There is a legal system that can protect your rights when you know how to fight for them.
What happens after your car accident could determine whether you could receive financial compensation and how much you may get. In the days after your accident, you should contact an attorney. You are best off when you do this as close to the accident as possible. This way your attorney could gather the evidence that you need to show who was at fault for the accident.
After your initial conversation with your attorney, they would go to work. Here is what they could do to help your case:
Your car accident compensation usually starts with trying to settle your claim with the insurance company. This is not as easy as it sounds. You are faced with a choice of trying to settle your claim or filing a lawsuit. The best outcome is settling your claim without the need for a trial.
This requires that you go through the insurance claim process. It would involve the following:
You can count on having to go through this process multiple times. At its core, the claims process is a negotiation between two parties: you and the insurance company. Each one of you has their own financial interests. The hope is that you can meet somewhere in the middle. To get to that point, you need someone who could speak the language of the insurance company and possibly get them to move off their position. If you cannot get the insurance company to be more reasonable, you always have the option of taking your case to court.
