North Miami Passenger Safety

Any car collision in North Miami or Florida can be challenging, but one of the most difficult cases occurs when a passenger is injured. In these cases, an occupant may be seriously injured due to the negligence of a driver and may have a legal claim against the driver and their insurance company, but may hesitate to file that claim because in many cases the passenger knows the driver. It can be awkward to consider a legal claim against a colleague, family member, or friend who was driving the car involved in a collision that injured you. Nevertheless, it is your right and pursuing fair compensation can help you pay for medical bills and the other considerable expenses you may face.

If you would like legal advice about this sometimes challenging situation, contact Flaxman Law Group. Our compassionate legal team can help you explore your options in a no obligation case review.

Recovering Damages as a Passenger

If you are a passenger in a car that has been in an accident, you may have a legal claim if the accident was caused by negligence or recklessness. You may be able to recover damages for:

  • Medical costs
  • Future expected medical expenses
  • Medical devices
  • Medication
  • Hospital stays
  • Surgery
  • Loss of wages
  • Future expected income loss
  • Pain and suffering
  • Transportation costs
  • Property damage
  • Incidental expenses

These costs can end up costing you tens of thousands of dollars or even more. Medical costs in South Florida, especially, can be very high. Even with good medical coverage, you may find yourself facing significant medical bills and you do not want to pay these out-of-pocket if there are other options available. Consult with a personal injury attorney in North Miami or your community to review your legal options in the situation.

Misconceptions can Keep Occupants of Cars From Getting Compensation

Sometimes, attitudes and misconceptions prevent injured people from getting the fair compensation they need to pay for medical bills, lost wages, and other expenses after an accident. In some cases, for example, people who have been legitimately injured and deserve fair compensation under Florida law may feel guilty about pursuing a legal claim. They may not want to file a so-called frivolous claim or they may assume that their insurance company already doing everything possible for them.

In these cases, it is important to remember that under Florida law you have the right as an injured party to get answers about your accident and to pursue justice if someone's negligence or recklessness has caused your injuries. It is your right to seek compensation if you qualify and in many cases seeking compensation can help you and your family recover more fully.
