Common Causes of Car Accidents in Jupiter

Car crashes are often the result of a common set of contributing factors. Although bringing a case against those who caused the car accident always requires a uniquely tailored legal strategy, in most scenarios, the violating driver will have operated their vehicle negligently, recklessly, or under the influence of an intoxicant.

Negligent Driving: Many victims suffer injury or death when another driver pays more attention to their cell phone or other distractions than the road.

Under § 316.1925, Fla. Stat., a negligent driver is also known as a careless driver. Failure to operate a vehicle on the roads “in a careful and prudent manner, having regard for the width, grade, curves, corners, traffic, and all other attendant circumstances, so as not to endanger the life, limb, or property of any person” constitutes careless driving.

Reckless Driving: Those behind the wheel must consider how their actions could affect the safety of others on the road. Under § 316.192, Fla. Stat., “Any person who drives any vehicle in willful or wanton disregard for the safety of persons or property is guilty of reckless driving.” When drivers act recklessly, for example, in instances of road racing, they deserve to be held liable in civil court in addition to criminal court.

Impaired Driving: Under § 316.193, Fla. Stat., an individual will be guilty of DUI if they were in actual physical control of the car while their faculties were impaired by alcohol or controlled chemical substance. Beachgoers who over-imbibe during a day at Jupiter Beach Park are dangerous once they get back behind the wheel, and they need to be held accountable if and when they cause serious injuries to others.

Occasionally, the auto accident, or the severity of the accident, can be attributed to an auto parts defect. For example, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration attributes 612 deaths occurring in 2019 to tire-related crashes. In some cases, the party at fault is the manufacturer; but proving an auto parts defect case can be complex and requires an experienced legal team.

The Heavy Costs of Car Accident Injuries

Holding those responsible for the injuries or deaths they caused in a car accident is about more than imposing a punishment. While those bad drivers may also be found criminally culpable for the harm they caused, it's important that Jupiter car crash victims recoup their expenses through civil action. These costs frequently include:

  • Property damage
  • Emergency medical expenses
  • Long-term medical care
  • Loss of wages
  • Funeral expenses

When you or your loved one has suffered in a car accident, sometimes it isn't easy to think beyond the next few days. It's important, however, that you do consider the long-term implications of the injuries. Spinal injuries or traumatic brain injuries often affect individuals for the duration of their lives, and depending on the severity, this type of harm can impact the victim's ability to work or even manage day-to-day tasks.

An experienced car accident attorney will advocate for your current and future financial needs at a time when it may be difficult for you to do so on your own. The sooner you seek out legal help, the sooner you'll have someone fighting for you.

Types of Jupiter Car Accident Cases We Handle

Accidents on the road come in many shapes and forms, and the experienced and dedicated car accident attorneys at Bottari & Doyle, P.A. can help you in a multitude of scenarios. The types of cases our experienced South Florida car accident attorneys handle include:

  • Car accidents
  • Tractor-trailer and trucking accidents
  • Bus accidents
  • Pedestrian injuries
  • Motorcycle accidents
  • Bicycling accidents
  • Passenger injuries

Car accidents can occur under a variety of circumstances. Frequently, the wreck will involve one or more cars, leading to severe injuries and property damage. Truck accidents, often involving weights between 30,000 and 80,000 pounds, are usually catastrophic because of their size. Bus accidents in Southern Florida have similar terrible outcomes. The unfortunate truth is, if your vehicle is smaller, or if you're in no vehicle at all, then your injuries are likely to be worse.

Is it Worth Getting a Lawyer for a Jupiter Car Accident? 

Yes, for many reasons. First, hiring a car accident lawyer doesn't cost you anything. There are no upfront fees because attorneys handling car accident cases only get paid if they win or settle the case for you. There is literally nothing for you to lose by hiring an attorney. Second, insurance companies won't pay you for the fair value of your car accident claim.  By hiring an auto accident attorney, you force the insurance carrier to pay the fair value of the claim because the attorney can file a lawsuit against the driver. It will be very difficult for you to file a lawsuit by yourself without any legal experience. 

Is It Worth Filing a Lawsuit After a Car Accident? 

This will depend on the pre-suit offer from the insurance adjuster. For example, let's say the person who hit you has an auto insurance policy with $100,000/$300,000 of coverage.  This means the most any one person can get from the accident is $100,000 and the most the insurance company has to pay if multiple people were injured is $300,000.  If you have $150,000 of medical bills and the insurance company isn't offering to pay $100,000 then a lawsuit would be necessary to get the insurance company to pay the full value of the claim. 

We work very hard to get the insurance company to pay you what you deserve, without having to file a lawsuit.  This saves you time by not having to attend a deposition or additional medical examinations. 

What Are the Most Common Injuries Received In A Car Accident? 

  • Whiplash
  • Herniated Discs
  • Bulging Discs
  • Neck Pain
  • Broken Bones
  • Shoulder Pain
  • Knee Tear
  • Bruising
  • Traumatic Brain Injury
  • Shoulder Tear

Why would an insurance company offer me money for my auto accident case? 

An insurance company has an obligation to their insured to act in their best interests. Insurance companies want to make auto accident cases go away by paying you less than you are supposed to receive.  This is why it is important for you to hire us so that we can fight the insurance company and get you the money you deserve. 

What else can your law firm do for me if I have been injured in a car accident in Jupiter? 

We will be with you every step of the way throughout your car accident case against the insurance company. We will: 

  • Help you to get your car or truck fixed. 
  • Help you to get your medical bills paid.
  • Help you to find insurance coverage. 
  • Help you to get money for missing work. 
  • Help you to get money from the insurance company. 

Call Us Today at 561-588-2781 for a free consultation.  We only get paid if we recover money for you.
