Hold Negligent Drivers Accountable and Get Compensation
Many car accidents occur because one driver did not pay attention to the road or did not drive with reasonable care. Negligent drivers are accountable for the damages they cause to other drivers. Florida’s no-fault insurance law makes it relatively easy to recover a small amount of compensation without having to prove fault, but obtaining more substantial compensation to deal with a serious injury is not so simple.
The West Palm Beach personal injury lawyers at Pincus & Currier LLP pursue civil claims against negligent drivers and use their litigation skills and experience to achieve significant settlements or jury verdicts on behalf of our clients.
Florida No-Fault Claims and the Serious Injury Threshold
After an accident, your Personal Injury Protection (PIP) provides up to 80% of your medical expenses and 60% of your lost income up to $10,000. You don’t have to prove another driver was at fault in order to receive PIP benefits, but they do not fully compensate you. However, if your injuries qualify as a “serious injury” under the Florida no-fault law, then you can pursue a claim for the full amount of your damages. Our lawyers can examine your case for free and determine whether you have serious injuries under the Florida no-fault law.
How Our Personal Injury Attorneys Can Help
If pursuing a negligence claim against the at-fault driver, you have the burden to prove the elements of your case, including the other driver’s fault in causing the accident and your injuries, and the nature and extent of your injuries. You must also guard against defense allegations claiming that you do not have serious injuries, that your injuries did not result from the accident or that your own negligence caused the accident.
Our experienced courtroom litigators know how to prepare and present a strong and persuasive case to prove the facts of your claim. We will marshal the facts to support a fair and reasonable settlement. We will also litigate your matter all the way to a jury verdict.
