Automobile Accident Or Automobile Negligence?
We tend to call them auto accidents, but the use of the term “accident” is really a denial of responsibility by an at-fault driver. A more accurate phrase is “automobile negligence.”
A driver was negligent when he or she decided to put your life at risk by taking their eyes off the road to text behind the wheel, navigate GPS or another careless driving behavior.
Your Right To Pursue Compensation
When you suffer injury due to someone else’s negligence, the law in Florida allows you the right to seek monetary damages for the following:
- Property damage to your vehicle
- Lost wages due to your inability to work
- Medical bills and associated costs
- Pain and suffering
Do You Know What To Do After A Car Accident?
Knowing what to do after a car accident is not always easy. Often, you will have to file a claim with the other driver’s insurance company to obtain compensation. However, insurance companies are not in business to pay out claims. Many will offer injured parties quick settlements to get claimants to sign away any right to pursue further compensation.
Never agree to any settlement without speaking with an experienced attorney first who can determine what you should be entitled to.
