When you are injured in a car accident, your life can change in an instant. All it takes is one wrong move by another driver and being in the wrong place at the wrong time. You may find your life turned upside down by a car crash. You may not be able to work or enjoy the things that you did before the accident. All of this could happen because of someone else’s carelessness.
If it seems like this is happening more these days in the Miami-Dade area, it is backed up by the statistics. Car accidents are on the rise in North Miami and the entire country. North Miami finds itself with more dangerous roads as it is home to the most treacherous stretch of I-95. By this point, the trucks coming from Port Miami are joined by commuting workers heading home for the day. Miami roads see their share of aggressiveness, recklessness, and just plain careless behavior.
Here are some common type of car accidents that are caused by someone else’s negligent driving:
When another driver has caused your injuries, the law allows you to pursue financial compensation for the damages that you suffered. First, you would file a claim for financial compensation with the insurance company. The insurance will not automatically accept your claim and pay you what you believe that you deserve.
That would be too easy. Insurance companies do not want to roll out the red carpet for claimants or even do things that could ease their own burden. Your check comes out of their bank account, and they want to make it hard.
The claims process requires your attention, even when you or a loved one suffered serious injuries. Otherwise, you could lose your opportunity to file a lawsuit in your case.
Starting the claims process does not necessarily mean filing the claim immediately. There is a certain amount of preparation that is needed. This would include:
Of the entire list above, hiring an attorney is the most important step that you could take towards financial compensation. Without legal help, you may not have the knowledge or ability to help yourself. The insurance company has skilled professionals handling your claim, and they are not here to look after your interests. Instead, they tend to their employer’s bottom line. This is why you must have someone in your corner fighting for you.
An experienced lawyer knows when to turn the pressure up during the claims process. In the end, your trump card is the ability to file a lawsuit if you cannot agree to a settlement. The insurance company may not want to see your case in front of a jury because that could be when they need to pay the most. However, you also do not want to go all the way to a hearing because it takes time. The best outcome is negotiating a fair settlement that keeps your case out of court. However, you must be prepared to fight if that is what it takes.
