North Miami Beach. Florida Failure to Yield Accidents
At intersections and when merging, it is important to obey right of way rules. It is especially important for drivers to yield right-of-way to pedestrians, motorcyclists, and bicyclists, as these users of the road are especially susceptible to serious injuries resulting from a car accident. Unfortunately, each day people are injured or killed because drivers are too impatient or fail to yield right-of-way in North Miami Beach and surrounding areas.

Many people severely underestimate the expenses that they will face after a serious injury or traffic accident in North Miami Beach or their community. When considering expenses, most people consider immediate time away from work, immediate car repairs and car rental costs, and immediate medical expenses. While these costs may indeed be substantial, it is really the long-term and incidental costs that can add up and can make an injury cost tens of thousands, hundreds of thousands, or even millions of dollars. Expenses you may face after serious injury can include:
- The cost of medical devices such as wheelchairs, braces, and more
- Visits to specialists
- Digital imaging and other diagnostic testing
- Medication costs
- Lost income opportunities in the future if you've been permanently injured
- The cost of making your home accessible
- Car repair or car replacement costs
- Taxis or other transportation to visit doctors and other appointments after your injury
- At-home care costs or assisted living facilities
- Long-term medical costs, such as the cost of replacing prosthetics or the cost of follow-up care
- Physical therapy and rehabilitation
- Counseling or therapy
- Lost productivity at work
- At-home cleaning help and other services if you no longer can complete daily home care tasks
All of these costs can quickly add up, and with a permanent injury you can expect a lifetime of increased expenses. There may be expenses that are also difficult to plan for. For example, someone who has suffered a serious permanent injury may be more susceptible to infections and other medical complications, which can increase their medical costs over a lifetime. Of course, this can also mean that insurance premiums for medical coverage and car accident insurance will also go up, which is another incidental expense that is related to the injury. When considering whether to accept an insurance or settlement offer, it is important to keep all of these costs in mind and to pursue the fairest compensation amount so that you do not end up having to pay for costs out-of-pocket.Have You Been Injured in a Collision in South Florida?
