Car Accident Settlement

Picture of Car Accident Settlement

You’ve been injured in a car accident that you know is not your fault. Your car has been severely damaged, you’re injured, and you don’t know when you’ll be able to return to work. You know that you should be compensated for your damages, but you have no experience making an insurance claim of this magnitude. That’s where 1-800-Injured can help. 1800-Injured is an attorney and medical referral service. Whether you were injured in Miami, Fort Lauderdale, or Tampa, 1-800-injured can connect you with an experienced car accident attorney in your area who can guide you through the settlement process.

When You’re Entitled to a Car Accident Settlement

Florida law requires that all drivers carry a minimum of $10,000 in Personal Injury Protection (PIP), which covers injuries sustained in an accident, regardless of fault. That may sound like a lot, but with the skyrocketing cost of healthcare, it will only cover the most cursory of examinations. In addition, you must also carry a minimum of $10,000 in property damage liability insurance, but that only covers other vehicles that you may have damaged. Many people opt for higher coverage limits or additional riders, which may pay for additional damages.

If you’re injuries are even moderately severe, however, you will be facing extensive medical bills from doctors, specialists, medical tests, blood work, physical therapy, and follow-up appointments. In addition, you may experience lost wages, diminished work capacity, pain, and suffering. Some of these costs are easy to calculate, while others are determined by case law and predetermined formulas.

The Risk of Settling Without a Car Accident Attorney

Car insurance companies hire claims adjusters to calculate the amount of your damages. In many cases, they’ll present an itemized list for your injuries and damage that would seem reasonable to someone who isn’t familiar with car accident injury claims. Because adjusters are beholden to the insurance companies, however, these claims are usually insufficient.

Before issuing you a check for your damages, most insurance adjusters will ask you to sign a waiver of liability, which states that you’re accepting the funds on the condition that you will not seek further damages. Unfortunately, this prevents you from going back to the insurers if your funds run dry.

How Attorneys Calculate Your Car Accident Settlement Claim

Florida car accident lawyers are experts in calculating damages and negotiating fair and full settlements with insurance company attorneys. Damages for car accidents are divided into two categories: economic and non-economic.

Economic Damages

Economic damages include anything that has a dollar value attached to them. Some of these include: repair cost of your vehicle, ambulance fees, emergency room bill, hospitalization expenses, medications, doctor’s appointments, scans, tests, physical therapy expenses, and lost wages.

Non-Economic Damages

Non-economic damages don’t have a direct dollar value connected with them, so the calculations are usually based on standards that have been established under the law. Some of these non-economic damages include diminished work capacity, diminished quality of life, and pain and suffering.

How Contingency Fees Are Calculated

Car accident attorneys in Miami and the rest of the state of Florida work on a contingency basis, which means that they only get paid if you receive a settlement or a court award. The attorney contingency fees for Floridaare set by state statute. The following are the state’s contingency fee limits.

Before the appointment of an arbitrator:

  • 33?% up to $1 million
  • 30% for the portion from $1-$2 million
  • 20% for any portion exceeding $2 million

After the appointment of an arbitrator:

  • 40% up to $1 million
  • 30% for the portion from $1-$2 million
  • 20% for any portion exceeding $2 million

If all defendants admit fault and the trial is only for damages (and not fault):

  • 33?% up to $1 million
  • 20% for the portion from $1-$2 million
  • 15% for any portion exceeding $2 million

There may be an additional 5% fee added on to the above limits if there is an appeals process involved in the settlement.

The bottom line is that you don’t have to pay money out of pocket to be represented by a professional personal injury lawyer.

A car accident can be the most stressful time for anyone. The best thing I could've done was call 1800 injured. They take care you from beginning to end. They handle all of the work of going through the claim process and making sure you get the medical treatment you need. Working with their lawyer was very helpful during this time. You won't regret it.

I must say that working with 1800-Injured was seamless during a stressful period. Both myself and my wife got into auto accidents within two months of each other and the service received ion both cases from this company is seciond to none. We felt completely at ease from the initial phone call, as they were recommended by someone else who too had a pleasant experience and at every stage in the process we were kept informed, the explanation of the process was thorough and the follow up was an indication that we were in great hands. Thank you for making what could have been a very unpleasant and stressful experience one that was seamless and stress free.

I was recently involved in a automotive accident. A car crashed into my car from behind and I was pushed forward and I hit the car in front of me. At that time I really didn't know what to do or who to call. I remember seeing an Ad for 1 800 Injured on my Instagram page. I called them and they were very informative and handled everything from A to Z. They set me up with a great lawyer and with the right doctors.

Hace unos cuantos meses tuve un accidente con mi novia en el highway, inmediatamente despues del accidente me comunique con 1-800 injured ya que un amigo me lo habia mencionado. Desde que hice la llamada estuvieron a mi disposicion 100%. Me mandaron a la clinica el mismo dia y me ofrecieron un driver de mi casa a la clinica ya que no podia manejar en esas circustancias. No solo eso, tambien me ofrecieron un exelente abogado que llego a mi casa el mismo dia del accidente. No puedo quejarme de su servicio, recibi un excelente tratamiento en la clinica durante 3 meses y en todas mis visitas el driver me llevaba y me traia a mi casa. Definitivamente ofrecen un excelente servicio y se preocupan por sus clientes. Si llegan a tener un accidente automovilistico no duden en contactar a 1-800 Injured!
