Whether you live in a big city, a small town, or the countryside, getting around in an automobile is one of the most basic needs of modern life. Many of us drive on a daily basis- going to and from work, dropping kids off at school, taking kids for activities, doctor’s appointments, shopping, and much, much more. When we spend so much time as a motorist, it is, unfortunately, likely that we may at some point be involved in an auto accident. Do you know all the right steps to take in such a situation?
Let me tell you about a little accident that my friend was involved in. After dropping her daughter off to school one day, she was waiting at a railroad sign for the line of cars ahead of her to move forward. All of a sudden, she felt a big jerk and her whole body moved forward over the steering wheel. She hit her head and for a few moments did not even realize what happened. Then it dawned on her- the car behind had rear-ended hers. Slowly she removed her seat belt and got out of her car. Long story short, she felt alright and left after getting the phone number of the driver who had hit her car.
She did go through a few days of back pain due to the accident, but decided to just put the incident behind her. She considers herself lucky. But what if you or your vehicle suffer bigger damages and end up with high medical and auto repair bills? What if you are hit by an uninsured motorist? Who can help you decide on the best course of action? Auto accident attorneys such as the Fort Lauderdale accident law firm of Abramowitz, Pomerantz and Morehead, P.A. (APM) can.
How APM Florida Injury Lawyers can help you
Even though you may consider yourself to be an experienced, careful driver, you have little control over how others on the road are driving. You may prevent yourself from getting into accidents, but cannot avoid a hit by another motorist. And if this motorist happens to be uninsured, are you just stuck with all the bills? As experienced Fort Lauderdale accident lawyers, we at the APM law firm can help you to take all the right steps and receive the compensation you deserve in such a situation. At APM, we have handled all types of accident cases- from wrongful death to minor injury cases, and everything in between. We don’t leave any stone unturned in our efforts to get you the best result.
While all accidents involve work, with an uninsured motorist, the case can get much more complicated. The uninsured motorist cannot pay you damages because he or she does not likely have any assets. Now you are free to file a lawsuit, but actually receiving any money from the driver might be an entirely different story. Your best option might be to file a claim under your own car insurance policy, if you have uninsured motorist coverage.
Unfortunately, these claims are not as easy as it may seem. For filing a compensation claim, even though you are only dealing with your own insurance company, and not the other motorist’s, things can still get ugly. In an attempt to minimize damages and compensation, your insurance company may even go to the extent of hiring a lawyer for the uninsured motorist, if it will save them some money. As a driver, the only person who is going to have your best interests in mind is an experienced attorney who will fight hard for your rights. At APM we do just that.
As one of the best Fort Lauderdale auto accident lawyers, we can guide you in correctly filing your claim, and working hard for you until the resolution of your case.
