Our Attorneys Can Establish Liability for Your Accident
Securing awards for your accident requires showing that a driver’s negligent, wrongful, or reckless actions caused your injury. Our Hollywood, FL, attorneys can build your case based on the four elements of negligence:
Duty of Care
Drivers owe pedestrians, bicyclists, and others on the road a duty of care. This means motorists are legally obliged to drive safely and obey the traffic laws outlined under Florida Statutes Chapter 316. Additionally, the Official Florida Driver License Handbook identifies specific rules designed to keep pedestrians safe. The handbook states that drivers:
- Must stop for pedestrians at marked crossings, intersections, and driveways
- May not pass another vehicle that is stopped at a crosswalk to allow a pedestrian to cross
- Must never block a crosswalk when stopped at a red light
- Must stop and look in both directions before making a right turn on red
- Should exercise care around children, the disabled, and the visually impaired
Breach of Duty
When divers fail to obey traffic laws or act in a reasonably safe manner, they breach the duty of care. Our pedestrian accident lawyers can gather evidence showing that a driver broke the law or behaved dangerously or negligently. Case evidence may include:
- Police reports
- Medical records
- Surveillance or dashcam video
- Photographs of your injuries and the site of your accident
- Eyewitness accounts
Using our legal experience and knowledge of the law, Our attorneys can draw a direct connection between a driver’s wrongful behavior and your accident. For example, if your accident involved a drunk driver, we can establish that their blood alcohol concentration (BAC) was above the legal limit. We can show this led to a failure to react to a red light, which caused them to enter an intersection and hit you while you were crossing.
We can prove that your accident led to financial damages and pain and suffering. Our lawyers can collect your bills, receipts, wage records, and other documents outlining your out-of-pocket losses. We can also hire medical professionals, vocational experts, and economists who can evaluate your pain and suffering and expected future medical expenses and lost wages.
We Can File Your Case Before Time Expires
It is a good idea to get in touch with our firm as soon as possible to ensure there is time to file your case before the deadline. You want to ensure you have time to work through your insurance claims and take legal action if necessary. According to Florida Statutes § 95.11, you have up to four years from your accident to file a personal injury case. In addition, the state allows up to two years from your loved one’s passing to sue for wrongful death.
We can help you prepare and file your case and attempt to negotiate before time runs out. We are ready to take your case to court if needed. Reach out before your window of time to take action closes.
