Deerfield Beach, FL
Deerfield Beach, located in Florida’s Broward County, is a city known for its beautiful beaches and mild weather. Named after the deer that used to be plentiful in the area, Deerfield Beach is close to the amenities of Fort Lauderdale and Miami. The history of the city stretches back to the 1890s, when the area was known as Hillsborough before the community was renamed Deerfield Beach. In the early 1900s, the area was populated largely by farmers but by the later part of that century the city was known as a popular tourist destination in part because of its beach.
While Deerfield Beach is a beautiful city, like any city it sees its fair share of accidents and injuries, including Deerfield Beach boat accidents, car accidents, and more. If you have been injured in Deerfield Beach recently, you may not even know the full extent of your injury yet. Some Deerfield Beach brain injuries and spinal cord injuries, for example, take weeks and even months to diagnose correctly. The full cost of your medical care may not be apparent until after your initial round of treatment is completed. However, many insurance carriers attempt to place a dollar value on your injuries and attempt to close the claims process well before all the facts are present. Unfortunately, it means that in many cases people who have sustained a serious accident end up getting less than they deserve in compensation and end up paying quite a few medical costs and other expenses related to their accident out-of-pocket.
Another possible challenge is that if you have sustained a serious injury in Deerfield Beach, you have a limited amount of time under Florida to make a claim. There is a statute of limitations which allows you to only pursue legal action for a limited time after your injury. Waiting to pursue a claim can also hurt your case in a number of other ways. For example, once you accept an insurance offer you may end up signing way some of your rights to pursue legal action and further compensation. In addition, if you wait you may find that some of the evidence and documentation that you need to prove your case in court is no longer available. For all these reasons, it is important to consult with a qualified Deerfield Beach personal injury attorney as soon as possible after your injury.
