If you have been in a traffic accident in Fort Lauderdale, determining the cause is important if you want to find out who the liable parties and need to decide whether you have a legal claim to seek compensation for your injuries and losses. Unfortunately, it can be challenging for most drivers to figure out the cause of their accident for a few reasons:
Miami is a hotspot for vintage, classic, and historic cars. Florida residents love collecting cars from decades past and with no ice and snow, the state is the ideal place to enjoy a beautiful collector car.
Any car accident in Miami can be traumatic, but it can especially daunting when it involves a one-of-a-kind vintage or historic car. The process of making a collector car insurance claim can also be daunting. Fortunately, Flaxman Law Group is here to help.
At this time of year in Broward County, many residents are traveling to see family and friends for the holiday. This can create added congestion and a heightened risk of traffic accidents.
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.
Hallandale Beach car collisions can easily lead to head injuries because of the force of impact. It can take months or years to recover from a traumatic brain injury sustained in a traffic collision and the healing process can require complex and expensive medical treatment. For some patients, their injuries prove permanent or even fatal.
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.
Car collisions can lead to many devastating injuries, but facial injuries tend to cause especial emotional distress. The legal team at Flaxman Law Group has helped many plaintiffs with Cooper City facial injury claims and have seen first-hand what the road to recovery looks like.
Earlier this week, we examined some of the common and devastating injuries which can result from traffic crashes in Hollywood. Today, we’re looking at some more common injuries, including:
If you have been in a car collision in Coral Gables and have retained the services of an attorney, you are likely interested in pursuing fair compensation. Ideally, you have chosen well and you are happy with your legal representation. But what can you do if you’re not pleased with the attorney representing you in your Coral Gables claim?
In most cases, you do have the right to switch attorneys. Plaintiffs may take this step when they cannot get their attorney to return emails or calls or when they have a difference of opinion about the direction of the case. Some plaintiffs switch attorneys because they have concerns about the strategy an attorney is using or because they are not happy with where their claim is going (or isn’t going).
