In South Florida communities like Plantation, car sharing is relatively new and insurers are still working out liability issues and claims in situations involving this model. If you are injured in a collision involving a car sharing vehicle, it’s important to work with a Plantation car collision claims attorney because your case may be complicated.

Car sharing can be a good solution for drivers. There are a few types of car sharing. In one type of car sharing, a company purchases a fleet of cars and rents them on a short-term basis to customers who pay to use cars by the hour. If you’re in a collision with one of these cars, the insurance is not very different than being in a collision with a rental car. More complex than being in a crash with a regular driver—there are more parties involved, after all—but familiar.

If you have been in a front-end crash in Parkland, or a T-Bone accident, rear-end shunt collision, or any traffic incident which has resulted in car damage or injuries, one of the first calls you will make is to your insurance company. Of course, you have been paying premiums on your insurance for years and expect your insurer to be there for you when you need them to be. Unfortunately, some patients in Parkland with brain injuries, back injuries, and other injuries find they face challenges in getting the money they need from their insurer.

This past year has been unusual in many ways, and traffic collision statistics bear that out. While there were fewer people on the roads because of lockdowns, stay-at-home orders, and less tourism, NSC (the National Safety Council) reports that 42,060 people across the country died in traffic collisions last year, an 8% increase over the year before and a 24% jump in terms of miles driven. That is the highest increase in traffic fatalities in the past one hundred years.

In the first six months of 2021, deaths were up 16% year over year and in that same period 2,445,000 Americans sustained serious injuries in collisions. August saw the greatest number of fatal collisions. Approximately $241.9 billion in property damage was attributed to traffic collisions across the country in the first half of 2021.

If you’re in a side-swipe or rear-end collision in Miami, you may sustain what are known as short-term injuries. These are injuries which may last for a short period of time and you are expected to fully recover. Your insurance company may call your injuries short-term or mild injuries if you have sustained a fracture, contusions, soft tissue injuries.

The trouble with short-term injuries is that they can still be debilitating and can end up lasting longer than expected. A bone fracture, for example, may take longer to heal that expected or an open wound may get infected, delaying a patient’s return to work.

Being in a Homestead T-bone collision or head-on crash is already devastating. Any collision can be frightening, but the trauma can be even more intense if you are misdiagnosed after your car collision.

Misdiagnosis after a car crash can lead to complications and can prevent you from getting treatment in a timely fashion, which can lead to permanent injury in some cases. For example, if you have a head injury and this is missed in an ER, you could be sent home only to suffer life-altering brain injury symptoms because you did not get help in time.

September is Pain Awareness Month, and the International Association on the Study of Pain (IASP) is working to further research and social awareness of this sometimes-debilitating condition.

Hallandale Beach car collisions can easily lead to head injuries because of the force of impact.

During lockdowns, there were fewer cars and trucks on the roads. We might think this would cause fewer collisions, but in fact the opposite is true. The National Safety Council reported a 14% jump in fatal car collisions nationwide in 2020 and a sharp increase in commercial truck crashes, too.

According to the Florida Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles, there have been 5949 bicycle accidents reported in Florida so far this year, and 602 in Broward County alone. So far, there have been 163 fatalities from these collisions across the state. Unfortunately, Florida has the distinction of having one of the highest bicycle collision fatality rates in the country, and each year riders in Fort Lauderdale and surrounding areas are seriously injured or killed when their bikes collide with cars.

In Broward County, trucks are essential for commerce. They deliver goods to stores and businesses across the region and make deliveries to customers, too. Moving trucks, tanker trucks headed for construction sites, and large big rigs delivering shipments to stores are on the roads every day. While most trucks make their deliveries safely, the size of these trucks can lead to disastrous collisions.

If you have been in a collision with an 18-wheeler, big rig, or any commercial truck, you may have sustained serious injuries. A fully loaded tractor trailer can weigh over 80,000 pounds and in a crash with a smaller passenger car, the occupants of the smaller car are at risk of catastrophic injury.

I had a lawyer on another case and I never spoke to the lawyer and I hated that I never knew what was going on in my case.
