Kendall Car Accident Lawyer

Vehicle collisions kill or seriously injure millions of Americans every year. The Kendall car accident lawyer at Spencer Morgan Law will work hard to obtain the financial compensation these victims need and deserve.

These collisions usually cause serious injuries that are normally permanent, at least to an extent. The average injury-related medical bill exceeds $40,000, and victims must eventually pay these bills. They should not have to pay these bills out of their own pocket if the accident was someone else’s fault. They also shouldn’t have to rely on insurance company or government handouts.

Furthermore, an accident settlement is the closest thing to an admission of responsibility. In a perfect world, tortfeasors (negligent drivers) would immediately assume responsibility for their mistakes, and a Kendall car accident lawyer would not need to get involved. But as we all know, we do not live in a perfect world.

Kendall Car Accident Lawyers and Car Crash Injuries

Before the coronavirus pandemic, the number of fatal car crashes had been trending down. But that figure shot up in 2020 and again in 2021 and 2022. Drivers picked up some bad habits when roads emptied during lockdowns, such as driving drunk and speeding excessively. These habits, like so many other bad habits, were easy to form and hard to break.

The number of fatal crashes has increased, as has the number and severity of car accident injuries. Some of these serious injuries include:

  • Head Injuries: Airbags and other restraint systems absorb much of the force in a car wreck, but they do not alter the motion of a car wreck. When a victim’s head violently moves forwards and backwards, the motion usually damages nerves in the cervical spine and causes whiplash, or the motion slams the brain against the skull, causing a traumatic brain injury. Many unfortunate victims sustain both these injuries.
  • Broken Bones: Restraint systems do not protect the legs and arms. Usually, these limbs flail wildly and strike a solid object, like the dashboard. Since doctors must use metal parts, like pins and screws, to reconstruct these bones, physical therapy is longer, more difficult, and more expensive.
  • Internal Injuries: Car crashes cause major head injuries and broken bones, but in many cases, they cause small abrasions on kidney, livers, and other internal organs. However since these organs do not have protective skin layers, they usually bleed badly. In fact, many victims lose about a fourth of their blood supplies before they see doctors.

A Kendall car accident lawyer connects victims with doctors who know how to diagnose and treat collision-related injuries. As a bonus, these doctors usually charge nothing upfront. So, victims get the treatment they need when they need it.

Liability Issues

Medical bills and other accident-related expenses must be paid eventually. Compensation is available if a victim proves negligence, or a lack of care, by a preponderance of the evidence, or more likely than not.

Evidence in a car crash claim usually includes witness statements, medical bills, and the police accident report. However, in many cases, this minimal evidence yields minimal results. Maximum compensation is only available if a Kendall car accident lawyer goes the extra mile and anticipates, and deals with, insurance company defenses.

Comparative fault might be the most common insurance company defense in car crash claims. This doctrine basically shifts the blame for an accident from one party to the other one (e.g. Sally was speeding and Jimmy was drunk). Florida is a pure comparative fault state. Even if a victim was 99 percent responsible for an injury, the tortfeasor is responsible for a proportionate share of damages.
