The importance of seeking legal counsel as soon as possible cannot be overstated. Florida law establishes deadlines for filing personal injury and wrongful death lawsuits, called "statutes of limitations." If you try to file a lawsuit after the statute of limitations has passed, your case will almost certainly be dismissed.
Also, delaying your consultation could allow important evidence to be erased or altered. The strength of your evidence will ultimately determine the outcome of your case, and the sooner your attorney can investigate your accident, the more likely it is that essential evidence will still be available.
The bottom line: You should speak to a car accident lawyer as soon as possible.Do I Have Grounds for a Car Accident Claim?
Florida is a "no-fault insurance" state, so no matter who was liable for your accident, you should be able to recover compensation from your own Personal Injury Protection coverage. But if your damages exceed your coverage limits or if you intend to pursue compensation for non-economic losses like pain and suffering and emotional distress, you will need to file a third-party claim against the at-fault driver or his or her insurance company.
For your third-party claim to be successful, it must be shown that the at-fault driver breached a duty of care owed to you. Common examples of a breach of duty in car accident cases include:
- Making an illegal turn;
- Driving while distracted;
- Driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs;
- Speeding; or
- Running a red light.
If the driver who caused your accident was engaging in any of the above behaviors or was otherwise reckless or negligent, you may have grounds for a personal injury claim. If a member of your family died in an accident with a negligent driver, you may have grounds for a wrongful death claim.Call 386-227-5219 to Speak with a Car Accident Attorney serving Daytona Beach Today!
