Q. “How much insurance coverage and money can I get, if the other driver was negligent and caused the auto accident?” A. Ft. Lauderdale auto accident lawyer John M. Castellano shares this truth:

We help with Florida auto accident cases and Ft. Lauderdale personal injury cases too, and not only the criminal defense cases for which we’re more often known. In response to the question, I will share below some of the truth about insurance coverages, Florida auto accident cases and their development today, together with Florida personal injury cases too:

Motor vehicle or Florida auto accident cases are too frequent to count anymore, as you know. They are too often characterized by tremendous suffering and far reaching physical, economic/financial and emotionally painful consequences, as we also know. Injuries can leave you or your family members in excruciating pain, suffering disability and unemployment.

To add insult to injury, your insurance company is no doubt more interested in its own pecuniary or financial interest, than anything remotely related to your recovery. At the Law Office of John M. Castellano, P.A., in Fort Lauderdale, FL, we are dedicated to, and very focused on, representing victims who have been injured in car accidents. Our experienced Ft. Lauderdale personal injury lawyers help auto accident victims obtain the necessary compensation that will aid in their recovery, and help them to move on with their lives.

Stacked insurance policy claims:

“The ‘stacking’ of insurance coverages on each vehicle insured under a policy, for example, can significantly increase the value of a claim — assuming for a moment that the insured person chose and paid for ‘stacking’ as an option under their policy … inasmuch as the applicable coverage for each insured vehicle, is then “stacked, meaning ‘added up’ ‘on TOP of’ the coverage applicable to each and every other listed vehicle insured under the policy.” — Florida auto accident lawyer John Castellano

Rental car expense or reimbursement; Medical expenses, lost wages, and pain and suffering in the past and future.

Car Accident Statistics

Every 10 seconds, someone in the USA is involved in a motor vehicle accident, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.

Negligence

“Florida car accident cases are known as Florida auto accident liability cases, or auto accident personal injury liability cases, and yet these cases are only fruitful or victorious for the injured party, IF the negligence of the other driver was the LEGAL cause — or what they call the ‘proximate cause’ of the accident.”

“These cases are typically governed by the Florida laws of “foreseeability” and “negligence,” which essentially state that someone operating an automobile must exercise ‚Äúreasonable care under the circumstances,” and “guard against risks that are foreseeable under the circumstances,” employing “that standard of care which the reasonably prudent person would have exercised under the same or similar circumstances.” — Florida Personal Injury lawyer John Castellano

“Failing to use reasonable care is considered negligence, and a person who negligently operates a motor vehicle will be required to pay for any and all “consequential” damages that result from their negligent conduct; but again, this is true ONLY if their negligence is the legal or proximate cause of the accident and the injuries to the injured parties — and as for the actual “damages,” which often translates to “compensation,” this will include any economic or financial loss to the injured or “damaged” parties, along with damages and compensation for pain and suffering, medical bills, limitations and disabilities then experienced by the injured parties — or anything consequential and debilitating to the injured or damaged person or property that is caused by the negligent driver, for example.”

Do not discuss the facts of your case or sign any documents until you contact Florida Personal Injury LawyerJohn Castellano, or one of our Ft Lauderdale Personal Injury Attorneys @ the Law Office of John M. Castellano, P.A.

“Remember, YOU as the injured party (i.e., the plaintiff) are required by law to prove that the negligence — meaning the careless or “negligent” conduct of the defendant, caused the accident and your resultant injuries. We know how to do this, and you need this help. And we all know that after an auto accident, the insurance companies are quick put their own financial interests in front of yours — and your family’s, and it’s no secret that they often try to get a quick, cheap settlement, or deny the claim altogether. Please, for your family’s sake, don’t let auto insurance companies do this to you or your family. Call me @ 954 76 8810 and I will advise you on what is best for you and your family, doing all I can to help.” — Ft. Lauderdale personal injury lawyer John Castellano
