North Miami Side Impact
Many people who have been in a T-bone or sideswipe car accident in North Miami assume that they are fully protected by their medical coverage and their car insurance. It's only often too late that they realize that their insurance company may have paid them too little to cover lost wages, medical bills, and other expenses after their accident.

Depending on the specifics of your case, you may have a few different types of lawsuits possible:
- A products liability lawsuit. If a mechanical failure, such as a brake failure, led to the accident, you may have a product liability lawsuit against the manufacturer of the vehicle that crashed into you.
- A personal injury lawsuit. If you have sustained serious injuries in a car accident and you and your lawyer can show that the at-fault driver was negligent in some manner, you may have a personal injury lawsuit.
- A wrongful death lawsuit. If you have lost a loved one in a side-impact car crash, you may be able to seek a wrongful death lawsuit if you are an immediate family member who has been financially impacted by the loss.
- A Worker's Compensation lawsuit. If you were working or in a company car at the time of the accident, you may have a workers compensation claim as a result of your accident.
If you have been injured in a side-impact car crash, you may be able to seek significant compensation for:
- Medical costs
- Long-term medical care
- Lost wages
- Pain and suffering
- Property damage
In many cases, side-impact car accidents are complex. In order to prove that the at-fault driver ran a red light or a stop sign, it is important to consult with witnesses and to gather evidence almost right away. For this reason, is important to consult with a personal injury attorney in North Miami immediately.
A personal injury attorney can start gathering documentation and evidence before it disappears. An attorney can also show whether an at-fault driver was distracted, fatigued, subject to road rage, or otherwise showed signs of negligence. A good attorney can also help seek out multiple liable parties, increasing the chances that you get fair compensation for your pain and suffering, lost wages, and other expenses.
