Pompano Beach Head on Collision
According to government statistics, about one in ten traffic accident fatalities are caused by a head-on collision, even though these types of crashes account for only one out of fifty car accidents. These types of accidents take place when two vehicles driving in opposite directions collide, causing the front end of one vehicle to impact with the front end of the other vehicle. Due to the nature of these accidents, they generate a lot of force, which can cause serious crashes and catastrophic injuries.
The attorneys at Flaxman Law Group know that the injuries resulting from head-on car crashes can be devastating and can change your entire life. Again and again, the attorneys at our full-service law firm have worked with survivors of car accidents in Pompano Beach and other communities and have seen how important getting fair compensation can be.Don't Sign Away Your Rights
Under Florida law, people who are injured in a serious car accident that was caused by someone's negligence have the right to seek compensation for medical costs, lost wages, income loss, property damage, pain and suffering, and more. However, in some cases, insurance adjusters and attorneys who represent the at-fault driver or liable parties may try to get plaintiffs with legitimate claims to give up or waive their rights. Usually, this happens because the at-fault parties want to avoid liability and save money.
Even though attorneys for the other side may be sympathetic and even though your insurance company may promise that they are doing everything they can to help you, keep in mind that these parties do not necessarily have your best interests in mind. An attorney for the at-fault driver or liable party is legally obligated to help their client, not you. Insurance adjusters, even if they work for the insurance company that you pay premiums to, are responsible to their shareholders and to the bottom line. They may be nice people, but their main interest is to resolve claims quickly and inexpensively, even if that leaves you without adequate money to pay for medical bills in the long-term.What can an Attorney do for Me After a Car Crash?
