Miramar Poor Road Design

Some automobile accidents in Miramar and Florida are caused not by negligent driving but rather by poor road design. Poor road design can include bad decisions about traffic lights or lanes or it can include inadequate signage or road markings. This preventable problem can be caused by budget cuts, negligence, or by underqualified workers taking care of the roads.

In most cases, poor road design is preventable – and so are the traffic collisions that this road hazard causes. If you have been injured in a crash caused by negligent road design or maintenance, contact Flaxman Law Group, a full service law firm serving Miami-Dade County, Broward County, Palm Beach County, South Miami Heights, and surrounding areas. We can offer you a free consultation so that you can review your situation with a personal injury attorney.

Are You Covered After Your Traffic Collision?

If you have been injured by poor road design, you may not be as covered by insurance in a traffic accident in Miramar or your community as you think. Unfortunately, in many cases, insurance companies have caps placed on the coverage that they're willing to offer you, based on state laws and based on your premiums. You may find that some of your medical expenses or other expenses are not covered.

In addition, insurance companies sometimes undervalue claims. They may try to settle your claim before the full extent of your injuries is known, for example, or they may undervalue your claim by not considering the long-term cost of your injuries. The reality is that insurance companies are in business for their shareholders and that is where their primary loyalty lies. Even if individual claims adjusters are compassionate and caring people, the overall aim of the insurance company is to make profits for their shareholders. This can mean that your claim is undervalued and that you end up paying tens of thousands of dollars or even more in out-of-pocket expenses.

Even if you have excellent insurance, you need legal advice after a traffic accident. In addition to insurance coverage, you may have other legal options for pursuing compensation. For example, you may have a civil claim in your case that allows you to seek compensation from liable parties.

It is important to pursue all legal avenues and to review all your options carefully before you make a decision. Pursuing fair compensation is not only a right under Florida law, but it also ensures that you and your family make the right decision in your case so that you can pay for the damages that you have sustained.

The Reality of Serious Car Collisions is That You May Need Legal Assistance

To protect yourself, you will want to speak with a personal injury attorney who can review your legal options for pursuing fair compensation or fair insurance benefits for your injuries.
