Fort Lauderdale Underinsured Motorist Accident

Florida requires all drivers to have car insurance, but there are always drivers who violate the rules and recklessly endanger others by refusing to get insurance or by getting inadequate insurance. Unfortunately, drivers who drive without adequate insurance or without any insurance often have a ripple effect on others. In many cases, uninsured or underinsured drivers in Fort Lauderdale and Florida leave victims in a car accident without enough compensation and benefits to pay for medical bills. Some underinsured or uninsured drivers are also so concerned about their premiums and about the consequences of their actions that they leave the scene of accidents and cause hit and run collisions.

If you have been in a hit-and-run accident in Fort Lauderdale or have been injured by a driver who has inadequate insurance or no car insurance, you do have legal options. You may be able to get compensation from your own insurance carrier or seek maximum compensation from the other insurance carrier involved in the accident. If your accident was caused by poor road design, reckless driving, or another preventable reason, you may also be able to seek compensation through a legal claim. To find out what options exist for you, contact Flaxman Law Group to arrange a free, no obligation case assessment of your specific situation. Flaxman Law Group is a full-service law firm with a team of paralegals, personal injury attorneys, and other professionals standing by to help you.

Why You Need to Seek Maximum Compensation After a Traffic Accident

If you have been seriously injured in a motor vehicle collision, you need compensation or insurance benefits to pay for the many expenses you may face. The reality is that a traffic collision can be very devastating. You may be unable to return to work and even if you get paid leave at your job, your paid leave is likely not the full amount of money that you get by working. You still need to pay for rent or your mortgage, as well as all your other bills while also facing increased medical bills if you have been injured.

If you've been seriously, permanently injured you may not be able to return to work and you may be concerned about how you will make a living in order to support yourself and your family. Insurance is meant to protect you in these situations by giving you benefits and compensation so that you can pay for medical costs and so that you can replace lost income until you can get a job or heal enough to resume work. Unfortunately, when a driver is reckless and does not secure adequate coverage, their actions could leave you very vulnerable.
