Zimmerman & Frachtman Has Helped Residents All Over South Florida With Intersection Accident Injuries

Injured In An Intersection Collision With Another Vehicle?

It is important to know what to do in the event that you injure yourself while operating any kind of vehicle. According to the Federal Highway Administration, half of traffic-related injuries occur at intersections. These accidents may occur because of inattentiveness or lack of vision. It is important to reduce speed and look both ways when coming to an intersection. You can also avoid accidents by wearing reflective gear and clothing that will make you more visible to other drivers in the event of riding a motorcycle. Unfortunately, even the most attentive motorcyclists may get into bad accidents.

Holding Drivers Accountable For Intersection

If you are injured, it may be possible to hold the other driver liable for your injuries. Liability in many personal injury claims depends on whether the victim can establish the driver’s negligence. If you are a victim, you must prove that the driver was negligent by showing that the driver:

• Had a duty to use care
• Failed to use care
• Caused your injuries and damages

Be aware of the statute of limitations if you plan to file a claim. The state of Florida will allow you to wait up to four years on personal injury claims and up to two years for wrongful death suits, if you are filing for a relative who died in a crash.

Comparative Fault

Even if you are partly responsible for your injuries, you may be able to get a portion of your damages. Florida is a comparative negligence state. This means you can recover damages regardless of your degree of fault in the accident. You may get compensation for your injuries even if you were mostly at fault for your injuries. However, your recovery will be in proportion to your degree of fault.

Compensation for Your Injuries

You can include several expenses as part of your claim. If you can prove the other victim is at fault, you may be able to include compensation for your medical bills, lost wages, and more. If you are a family member of someone who died in an accident, you may be able to receive compensation through wrongful death actions. It is possible to receive compensation for your relative’s medical bills, funeral and burial costs. If you are unsure of what to do next in a car accident that was caused in an intersection, you can call our attorneys at Zimmerman & Frachtman today for a free case review.
