Coral Gables Blind Spots

Every vehicle (except for a convertible) has blind spots. These are areas that you cannot see clearly in your rearview and side mirrors because of an obstruction, such as the pillars that connect the roof of your car to the body of your vehicle. You are expected to check your blind spots by manually turning your body and head before you make a lane change, turn, or other at-risk activity. Unfortunately, negligent or distracted drivers fail to take this simple precaution and in some cases cause serious traffic accidents in Coral Gables or other communities as a result.

If you or a loved one has been seriously injured in an accident caused by incorrect checking of blind spots or by other types of negligence, you may be able to recover money for property damage, lost wages, medical bills, and more. For a free, no obligation case review of your claim, contact Flaxman Law Group today at 1-866-FLAXMAN (1-866-352-9626). Your free consultation is completely confidential and comes with no pressure.

You Need to Act Quickly After a Car or Truck Accident

The time you have to protect yourself after a car accident is limited. Florida has statutes of limitations, which means that you only have up to two years to file a legal claim if someone's negligence has caused your injuries. After a car accident, however, keep in mind that filing a claim quickly is very important. Information will start to disappear almost right away and witnesses will start remember less and less about your accident every day. In addition, juries are more likely to take your claim seriously if you take your claim seriously and file right away.

Speaking with a personal injury attorney in Coral Gables or your community ensures that you protect your rights and build the strongest case possible so that you have the best chance for getting fair compensation in your case. Keep in mind that once you accept insurance money, benefits, or a settlement offer you may have signed away some of your rights to pursue other avenues of compensation. It is important to speak to an attorney first so that you can plan a way to get fair compensation that will help you and your family.
