Miami Stop Sign Accident Lawyer
Half of all traffic collisions that result in injuries occur at intersections, and intersection collisions require one or more parties violating the right of way by running a red light or a stop sign. If you were injured in a stop sign collision, Spencer Morgan Law can help you file a personal injury claim against the at-fault driver who caused the crash. Our Miami stop sign accident lawyer is confident in their ability to hold the other party accountable, and secure full and fair compensation for you and your family.
Causes of Stop Sign Accidents
Chances are, the driver who ran the stop sign was not paying attention, or they were driving aggressively and ran it on purpose, hoping to beat you and any other road users through the intersection. Below are the four most common ways in which stop sign crashes occur:
- Distracted Driving
- Speeding/Impatient Driving
- Aggressive Driving
- Drunk Driving
- Drowsy Driving
Why Do I Need an Attorney?
Your attorney will compile your medical records, assess the true extent of your total damages and future losses, negotiate until a reasonable offer is agreed upon, or file a lawsuit and settle the issue in court. None of this is possible without an attorney. Auto insurers tend to give low-ball offers soon after the crash, hoping that the victim’s financial desperation and confusion will close the case quickly. An experienced personal injury attorney will not let you be walked over, and will hold the negligent party to the full damages you are entitled to. While this process takes many months, it is worth it in the long run.
Damages in a Miami Stop Sign Accident Case
Damages The damages you may be entitled to include medical expenses, lost wages, lost earning capacity due to long term disability, emotional distress, loss of joy of life, emotional distress, pain and suffering, property damage, and more. While it is impossible to even give a ballpark range of what your claim is worth until all of your medical records come in, if your injury was serious, a typical traffic injury case is worth anywhere from five to six digits, and possibly more if you or your loved one’s injuries were catastrophic. It is impossible to acquire anything close to what your case is actually worth if you deal directly with the other driver or their insurance company.
