Miami Gardens Underinsured Motorist Accident
Have you been in a car accident in Miami Gardens or your community with a driver who had inadequate car insurance or no car insurance at all? You are not alone. The Insurance Information Institute reports that in 20,009, 18% of drivers on the roads across the nation were uninsured. Florida was unfortunately the number five state in the country for uninsured and underinsured drivers. In Florida, 23% of drivers on state roads were uninsured in 2009.

We can help you find out whether you have other options for pursuing fair compensation or whether there is a way to negotiate with the at-fault driver's insurance policy in order to get fair compensation for your injuries. An initial consultation with Flaxman Law Group is free and comes with no pressure and no obligation.Serious Injuries can be Very Expensive
Serious injuries can cause financial distress because you may have to pay for:
- Hospital stays
- Medical or pharmaceutical devices
- Physical therapy, physiotherapy, counseling, and other medical services
- Long-term care or at-home care
- Car repairs or car replacement costs
- Property damage
- Lost wages
- Future increased medical costs
- Future expected lost income
- Any incidental costs
Keep in mind that incidental costs alone can end up costing tens of thousands of dollars.What Happens When Drivers Drive Uninsured or Underinsured?
If drivers are found to be driving without insurance, they can be charged up to $5000 in fines and may have their license or registration revoked or suspended. In some cases, their vehicles may be impounded or they may face jail time. If the accident resulted in fatalities or injuries, the penalties can be even more severe.
Unfortunately, it can be more difficult for plaintiffs to get justice in cases involving underinsured motorists. In these cases, insurance companies will sometimes tell the injured plaintiff that there is simply nothing that they can be done. Happily, this is not always the case. There may be several options available to the injured party.
The reality is that if you have been injured through no fault of your own, you deserve fair compensation as well as justice. In these cases, it is often best to consult with a personal injury attorney in your community. A qualified personal injury attorney in Miami Gardens or your community can review your case, can speak with the insurance carrier in your behalf, and can get the ball rolling on any legal action that can help you secure compensation. A skilled personal injury attorney can use every legal tool available and leave no stone unturned in the search for compensation for your injuries.
