The Challenges of Road Hazard Cases in Miami Lakes

Road hazard cases are often very difficult for a number of reasons. One of the challenges is that these situations often involve multiple liable parties, including government authorities (who are usually responsible for the roads). Government entities are strongly protected by powerful attorneys and have lots of resources – paid by your tax dollars – to put towards their defense. In many cases, liable parties will try to pass the blame to the injured party or to someone else.

Road hazard cases also often involve single car accidents. This means that there is no second at-fault driver and insurance company to pursue. It becomes more important to seek out liable parties in these cases to secure fair compensation for any injuries you may have sustained. Unfortunately, in single vehicle cases there is sometimes the tendency to blame the injured driver, even if the crash was not their fault. It often takes a very skilled attorney to uncover what really happened and to prove the causes of the accident before a court.

Working with a Personal Injury Attorney in Miami Lakes

Due to the challenges that often arise with these types of car accident cases, it is very important to get legal advice or even to work with a personal injury attorney when pursuing compensation. There are many things that a personal injury attorney can do if you have been injured due to poor road design or road hazards:

  • They can investigate the cause of your accident
  • They can help advise you of your legal options and legal rights
  • They can help launch a legal claim against any liable parties
  • They can negotiate with your car insurance and other insurance companies
  • They can take care of all the details of your legal claim and insurance claims

  • They can help you understand the likely long-term costs of your injuries
