Your Options for Pursuing Compensation for Your Rollover Accident Injuries
If another driver enters your lane, sideswipes your vehicle, runs a red light, or engages in other reckless behavior behind the wheel, it is not fair for a crash victim to have to endure the consequences, especially if their injuries lead to costly expenses. Medical bills can start the moment a victim needs to get transported to the hospital by ambulance.
We can help you win compensation to recover the expenses associated with your medical care, lost wages, and pain and suffering by helping you file a personal injury claim or lawsuit.
A Personal Injury Claim
The first step toward pursuing compensation involves negotiating a fair settlement with the defendant’s insurance company. While the insurance company may reach out to you with a settlement offer, it is advised that you do not accept it without legal representation.
The insurance company might not inform you that by accepting their offer, you may forfeit your right to future litigation should your condition worsen.
A Miami rollover accident lawyer can protect your interests by negotiating with insurance companies on your behalf. If we are unable to secure the type of settlement you need out of court, a member of the Chalik & Chalik Injury Lawyers team can take your case to trial.
A Personal Injury Lawsuit
As personal injury lawyers, we fight for accident victims’ rights. This means we will not settle for less than what our clients are entitled to collect. Going to trial requires patience on your part and preparation on ours.
We must file your personal injury lawsuit within the required statute of limitations. Florida Statute § 95.11 generally allows four years for victims to bring personal injury lawsuits.
If you miss the deadline for filing your lawsuit, you might exhaust your options for compensation. Do not let this happen to you. Contact Chalik & Chalik Injury Lawyers today for your free case evaluation at (305) 944-2035.
Rollover Accident Injuries Are Expensive
The traumatic impact of a rollover accident can leave a person with injuries so severe that they might require a lifetime of medical costs. Here are just two examples of injuries victims might sustain in rollover accidents, including their associated costs:
Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI)
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) defines this type of injury as a bump, blow, jolt, or penetrating head injury that disrupts normal brain function.
If you have an elder loved one who suffered a severe TBI, they might need to receive care at a skilled nursing facility. According to Genworth’s Cost of Care Survey, the cost for a private room in a Florida facility can average more than $8,000 per month. This cost should not come from your personal funds but rather the party responsible for your loved one’s injury.
Spinal Cord Injury
A spinal cord injury can result in limited to no sensation or movement below the point of injury. The resulting paralysis may require investing in home modifications, a wheelchair, or a power chair necessary. Vehicle modifications or a new, accessible vehicle is another expense.
According to the Christopher & Dana Reeve Foundation, the lifetime costs of a spinal cord injury can go beyond a million dollars. Accident victims who suffer a spinal cord injury in a rollover accident should not have to pay for these costs.
Wrongful Death and Rollover Accidents
If you lost a loved one in a rollover accident caused by a negligent driver, you may be entitled to compensation. Depending on your relationship to the decedent, you may qualify to pursue a wrongful death lawsuit.
Types of compensation often awarded in wrongful death cases include:
- Economic damages: These types of damages are specific, such as final medical costs for your loved one.
- Noneconomic damages: These types of damages are less tangible and include damages like loss of companionship.
Your legal team can go over the types of compensation you might pursue in your wrongful death lawsuit. As with personal injury cases, do not accept a settlement for your loved one’s death without legal representation.
At Chalik & Chalik Injury Lawyers, we treat our clients like family. We respect your right to mourn your loss. If you lost a loved one in a rollover accident, take your time to mourn, but remember that you have a limited time to seek justice and recover compensation on your loved one’s behalf. Our team is here to help you through the process.
