Delray Beach Car Accident Attorney


Auto Accident Lawyers in Delray Beach

Being involved in an accident can really mess with your psyche. People involved in accidents frequently feel shocked and disoriented for weeks, months or longer. It can take time to fully return to normal and feel comfortable driving or riding in a car again. One of the consequences of the post-accident shock is indecision or confusion about what you should do next.

If you don’t like how you’re being talked to by the insurance company after a crash, or you don’t want to make a mistake and lose out on the money you need to recover, the attorneys at Kanner & Pintaluga are there to help.

It can take time to fully wrap your head around all the costs associated with your crash. Far too often, people make quick assumptions about the scope of their situation and settle with the insurance company quickly so they can move on with their recovery. They fail to realize the claim payment they agreed to is far less than they’ll need to cover lost wages, a new vehicle and hospital bills – not to mention their pain and suffering.

We’ll make sure that doesn’t happen to you by accurately calculating your economic and non-economic losses, constructing a robust case and fighting for your right to fair and just compensation.

What Should I Do Immediately After a Vehicle Accident?

The Florida statute of limitations for filing a personal injury claim resulting from a vehicle accident is generally four years from the date of the accident, but the sooner you act, the sooner you may be able to receive compensation for what you’ve gone through. Consulting with a personal injury lawyer as soon as possible will also allow them to interview witnesses and investigate the crash before memories fade or evidence is lost.

Florida Laws That Affect Vehicle Accident Cases

No-Fault Insurance

Florida operates under a no-fault insurance system, which means that – regardless of who is at fault in a vehicle accident – each party involved must seek compensation from their own insurance company. Personal Injury Protection (PIP) coverage is mandatory to ensure that medical expenses, lost wages and other accident-related costs are covered up to their policy limits.

However, depending on your circumstances, you may still be able to file a claim and pursue compensation for property damage, expenses beyond your PIP limit and pain and suffering from the responsible party’s insurance provider. A skilled attorney can advise you on your next steps and help you build a compelling case.

Modified Comparative Negligence

When determining fault and awarding damages in a vehicle accident case, Florida adheres to the modified comparative negligence doctrine. This means that you can still pursue compensation even if you are partially (but no more than 49 percent) at fault for the accident. Though any damages you are awarded will be reduced in proportion to your assigned percentage of fault.

If you are deemed to be primarily at fault, you won’t be able to recover compensation, even if the other party played a significant role.

Why Are Insurance Companies Not on Your Side During a Vehicle Accident Case?

Insurance companies are primarily concerned with their financial interests. They may try to settle your claim quickly, often offering a low initial settlement that may not adequately cover your long-term medical expenses, rehabilitation, lost wages or pain and suffering damages.

The claims adjuster you first talk to after your accident has an incentive to save their employer money, which they may attempt to do by outright denying your claim, downplaying injuries, disputing liability or utilizing delaying tactics.

Insurance policies are often complex and filled with convoluted wording, excluded perils and coverage loopholes, all of which can potentially be used to evade liability. The complexity of these policies also makes it easier for insurance companies to take advantage of a plaintiff or policyholder’s lack of expertise and knowledge.

To ensure you’re getting compensated fairly, consult with an experienced attorney before accepting a settlement offer from an insurance company.
