Fort Lauderdale Car Accident Attorney

Fort Lauderdale Car Accident Attorney - Introduction

Getting into a car accident can not only be threatening to your health and physical well being but also to your mental stability. Whether it be dealing with the insurance companies; looking for a replacement vehicle; or going to doctor’s visits; it seems that errands and paperwork are waiting for you at every turn and are never ending. That is why if you have been involved in a Fort Lauderdale car accident it is best to find an attorney who can help you through the process with as little stress as possible.

Florida Law Allows Accident Victims to Recover in Most Situations

Some accidents are cut and dry. One driver was clearly at fault and the other the innocent victim. However, in reality, most accidents occupy a grayer area of the law. Perhaps one party ran a red light but the other was speeding or not paying as close attention as they should have been?

Florida laws are favorable towards accident victims. This is because unlike some other states, the laws of Florida allow for accident victims to recover even if they are partly at fault for the accident. This means that if another driver was negligently operating his or her vehicle and crashed into you, you may be eligible for a substantial monetary award, even if you were slightly at fault. This concept is called “comparative fault” in the legal world.

Proving Fault in a Fort Lauderdale Auto Accident

In order to recover in a Fort Lauderdale auto accident, the person bringing the suit—called the plaintiff—must prove four elements. First, the plaintiff must establish that the other driver owed the plaintiff a duty of care. This is fairly easy to establish in most Fort Lauderdale accident cases because all drivers owe their fellow drivers a duty to drive attentively and safely.

Second, the plaintiff must prove that the other driver breached that duty of care. This might be proven by showing that the other driver was issued a citation for breaking a traffic rule. Third, the plaintiff must show that the defendant’s actions caused the accident. Causation can be a difficult element to prove in some negligence cases. However, in auto accidents it can be more straight forward. Finally, the plaintiff must show that he or she suffered some kind of compensable damages.

    I was referred to Attorney Ralph Gonzalez to take care of injuries sustained from a car accident where I was rear ended. Not only did they make sure I got the care I needed, but were extremely professional and thorough in communication to explain the processes, follow ups, and expectations. Just closed the case after some time with a bigger settlement than expected, and I couldn't be happier with the treatment/services received from this office. Will 100% recommend to everyone. Thank you!
