Each year there are hundreds of thousands of car accidents across Florida, including many in Plantation. Until you have been involved in a car accident, you don’t know what it is like to suffer the physical pain and emotional anguish that can come along with being an accident victim. Therefore, it is critically important that when you select an attorney to represent you in your car accident, you choose an experienced personal injury law firm that will aggressively represent you.
The Fort Lauderdale, Pembroke Pines, and Plantation areas are notorious for both traffic and negligent driving. In fact, some studies have ranked southern Florida as one of the most dangerous places to drive in the country.
No matter what type of accident you have been involved in, the attorneys at Ask My Attorneys will fight for your right to recover.
According to the Florida Department of Transportation, Florida accounts for 20% of the nation's cycling fatalities, despite being just one of 50 states!
But wait... it gets worse! Data from 2017 has revealed that Broward is one of the most dangerous counties to be a pedestrian. This will come as no surprise to anyone who has ever walked or cycled in Dade or Broward, however it highlights the need for improvement.
As shown in the table below, Broward is the 9th most dangerous county in Florida (in terms of the number of pedestrian fatalities).
It is a type of attorney who specializes in the area of law surrounding auto accidents. As with any legal dispute, there are usually two sides. One side represents the victim of the accident, and the other (usually an insurance company) represents the person liable or responsible for the accident.
As personal injury attorneys, we are serving the cities of Plantation, Fort Lauderdale, Hollywood, Pembroke Pines, Pompano Beach, and the surrounding communities in Broward County, Florida. Our car accident attorney specializes in representing the affected person who has been injured or suffered damages of some kind. Always choose an auto accident lawyer who is familiar with the local law regarding car accidents.
Whenever you get into a car accident you should get the driver's name and license number, their insurance information, and the car’s license plate number. When dealing with a difficult motorist or a hit and run, the license plate number and a description of the vehicle is usually enough information for the police to track them down later. Finding the person liable for a car accident can be complicated. Unlike buses or large trucks, only a standard license is needed to drive any car in any state. Between rental cars, leasing, and sharing of cars, figuring out who is liable can be difficult because the driver of the vehicle is not necessarily the owner.
In Florida, if the driver of the vehicle is also the owner, that person is liable for any injuries to you or your property has sustained. The owner must have insurance that covers at least $10,000 for one person injured in an accident, $20,000 for two or people harmed, and $10,000 for any property damage.
Whether or not you are entitled to compensation will depend on several factors. It will depend upon liability (whose fault the accident was), the extent of damages or injuries sustained, plus the type of insurance plan you (or the other parties involved) possess.
Obtaining compensation can be a difficult process, which is why many people choose to engage the services of our car accident lawyers. They are very familiar with the process, so they can better ensure you receive the compensation to which you are legally entitled.

When insurance companies find out that one of their policyholders has been involved in an auto accident, it is their general policy to try and get out of the situation while paying out as little as possible. This often means that they will initially suggest a low ball offer, hoping that the accident victim takes it because they need the money for immediate recovery needs.
Once the insurance company knows that an accident victim is represented by counsel, they begin to take the case seriously. Don’t accept an insurance company’s offer without first speaking to an experienced personal injury attorney.
Our car accident lawyer works on a no-win, no-fee basis. In other words, there is no cost to you unless your case entitles you to compensation.

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!
