Holzberg Legal has been representing victims who have been injured or die as a result of a careless and reckless driving for over 34 years. You or your family members have the right to pursue a claim for their compensatory damages if you can prove that the driver responsible for your injuries acted negligently. There are many reasons for negligent driving –inattentive and distracted driving, (when was the last time you saw somebody on a cell phone or eating or drinking and not watching the road next to you on a busy street or highway) driving over posted speed limits, violating traffic laws and ordinances, or common sense, driving drunk or under the influence of drugs, and failure to obey stop and traffic signs, signals and your right-of-way.
When these negligent acts cause injuries to you or your family members you are entitled to recover damages for your medical bills, lost income, pain and suffering ,mental anguish, loss of enjoyment of life, and your spouse’s loss of consortium, you are entitled to recover medical bills him from the time of the accident, and into the future. If the driver that caused you harm is proved to have been driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs, or not paying attention because they were texting or using a cell phone, you may be entitled to cover punitive damages in addition to your compensatory damages. While insurance companies are not required to pay punitive damages, an experienced Miami personal injury lawyer knows how to use the law and their own insurance policies to force payments which must take into account their driver/insured’s interests and settled cases for full policy limits to protect the driver from your punitive damage claim.
In Florida your medical bills are covered by your personal injury protection benefits under your insurance policies, while any other damages are recovered from the insurance company of the driver who struck you. You can also recover from your insurance company if you maintain uninsured motorist coverage in your policy, or if your insurance company failed to give you an opportunity to purchase uninsured motorist coverage when you insured or replaced your car. It is important that an experienced Miami auto accident attorney review your insurance coverages, including your initial applications and renewals to determine the full extent of your coverage and damages, in other words all available compensation.
