Snowbirds come to Miami and Southern Florida for the wonderful weather every winter. Some even have permanent addresses in the area so they can escape the snow in the Northern States, Canada, and even Europe.
If you’re a snowbird and get into a car accident in Miami, however, your case may cross borders. There may be additional complexities. And if you’re a local resident involved in a traffic accident with a Snowbird, you may wonder how someone with a car insurance policy from another state (or another country!) will affect your claim. In both cases, you can always contact Flaxman Law Group for a consultation with a Miami accident claims attorney to get answers.
More fatal car accidents happen at night than at any other time of the day, even though there are far fewer cars on the road during the night. Nighttime car collisions bring extra risks and can make it harder for you to make a claim. If you’ve been in this kind of crash, don’t hesitate: contact Flaxman Law Group for a free consultation with a Hollywood car accident claims lawyer. Let’s discuss your potential case and what it may be worth.
When you are in a Hollywood car crash or approach a collision, you might see someone who’s injured. Do you know what to do? In this situation, the last thing you want to worry about is being sued because you stopped to offer assistance. Thankfully, Florida’s “Good Samaritan Act” can help.
If you’ve been injured in a car accident or have been injured by a bystander after your accident, contact Flaxman Law Group for a free consultation with a Hollywood car accident attorney. Let’s talk about the Good Samaritan Act and any other Florida laws that could affect your claim. Then, let’s strategize any possible ways you can get fair compensation to pay for your injuries.
After a Hollywood car accident, it’s important to make sure your medical costs and car repairs are covered. So what happens when the other driver has no license and you have no way to confirm their identity? While driving without a legal license is illegal in Florida, it happens more often than you might think.
If the other driver in your car crash is driving without a license, you will encounter additional barriers when you try to file an insurance claim. That’s why it’s important to contact a Hollywood car accident claims lawyer soon after your crash. You can do so by reaching out to Flaxman Law Group to set up a free consultation. Let’s discuss ways you may be able to protect your right to financial recovery.
Anyone can suffer severe, life-changing injury in a pedestrian accident, but some pedestrians are simply more vulnerable. Small children, for example, are still growing and may have their development and growth affected by an early injury. Their smaller size means they’re more likely to suffer critical injuries.
Another vulnerable group of pedestrians is seniors. The family-based legal team at Flaxman Law Group has worked with many senior clients who have suffered devastating injuries because a driver failed to stop at an intersection. If you find yourself in this situation, reach out to our father-son attorney team. In a free consultation, we can review your potential options for pursuing compensation and we can address questions you may have about your rights.
Being seriously injured in a Hollywood car accident can leave you facing pain and other challenges for weeks or months. Is there any way to reduce the amount of time you spend suffering? While every case is different the following steps can increase the chances of a timely recovery.
Many cars involve another driver, but every day some motorists crash into a railing, wall, building, tree, or other stationary object. Many people believe that if there’s no other driver, they’re at fault and they have no claim. This just isn’t true. Even if you think you may have contributed to your crash or aren’t sure you have a claim, get the facts about your rights. Contact Flaxman Law Group for a free consultation before you make any decisions.
For most people, car accidents are complicated enough. There are insurance companies to deal with, other drivers who may be at fault, and injuries to cope with.
For people who are in an accident at work, though, the stakes can be even higher. An employee in a car crash may be worried about losing their job or getting into trouble at work. The legal team at Flaxman Law Group also hears from injured workers who worry that they won’t qualify for workers’ compensation benefits or that their benefits won’t cover their costs.
A recent study by researchers at Columbia University Mailman School of Public Health established a link between adults with ADHD and car crashes. The study concluded that older adults with ADHD were 74% more likely to be in a collision and 102% more likely to get traffic tickets than non-neurodivergent drivers of the same age (65 to 79).
More research is needed to uncover the link between medical conditions such as ADHD and the risk of car accident. The more research is available, the more we can support drivers in staying safe and support injured plaintiffs in getting the financial recovery they need. The team at Flaxman Law Group has put together this guide to help you understand the latest research. If you find yourself injured in a car accident and need more help, contact our Miami, Hollywood, and Homestead offices for a free consultation with a Florida car accident attorney.
