Do I Need a Lawyer for a Car Accident in Pompano Beach? 

Yes, if you have been injured in a car accident then you do need an experienced attorney.  A car accident case can be complicated. We can help you with your case by performing the following: 

  1. Obtaining the crash report.  We advance the fee to purchase the report for you.
  2. Notifying the at-fault driver's insurance company of the accident. 
  3. Referring you to doctors who specialize in treating people in accidents.
  4. Obtaining money for you from the other driver's insurance company. 

Insurance companies don't like to pay money if they do not have to pay money.  A person who represents himself or herself in a car accident is doing themselves a disservice, because the insurance company knows they will not file a lawsuit.  Insurance adjusters pay money, because attorneys force insurance companies to pay money! Without car accident lawyers, insurance companies would never pay a dime.

"I appreciate Dan Bottari and the team at Bottari & Doyle, P.A. They thoroughly managed my car accident case and provided me with updates when I called. They were able to settle and pay off my accident related medical expenses. Everything was handled professionally and concluded positively. Thank you very much. I am grateful." - Sheree R. 

How long will my case take to settle? 

The length of your case will depend on several factors, including:

  1. How badly you were injured:  A case with someone who is badly hurt, but with a small insurance policy can settle within 24 hours.  Conversely, a case with someone who is badly hurt with a larger insurance policy may take longer to settle.  
  2. If the insurance company is contesting liability:   An insurance company that acknowledges their driver was at fault makes it easier for the attorney to settle a case. Generally speaking, cases involving rear-end collisions in Pompano Beach cause the insurance company to automatically accept liability. Additionally, if the officer cites the driver, then the insurance company will usually accept liability. 
  3. The length of your medical treatment:  You may need a lot of medical treatment depending on your injuries.  If you weren't badly injured, you may not need very much treatment. These timeframes can influence how quickly your case will settle or if it will need to be litigated by us filing a lawsuit on your behalf. 
  4. The insurance company's initial offer:  Insurance companies make money by saving money. They don't like to pay out money if they don't have to pay it.  We will force the insurance company to pay you more money if they are making you a lowball offer. This may take time, but it will be worth it because you should get every dollar that you are legally entitled to receive under Florida law.

How much money can I expect to receive for my auto accident case? 

The value of a car accident case depends on several factors, including:

  1. Property Damage:  A vehicle with a total loss due to severe property damage will increase the value of a bodily injury settlement.  This is because you are more likely to be injured than someone who is injured in a vehicle that sustained a fender bender.

Medical Expenses:   Typically, the more medical bills that you have the more your case will be worth.  A case with a person who has $500,000 in medical bills and a $1,000,000 insurance policy is going to be worth more money than a case with someone who has $10,000 in medical bills and a $20,000 insurance policy.

I am not happy with my current accident lawyer, can I switch? 

As the client, you can use any attorney you want. It is your decision.  If you are not happy with your attorney, you can switch attorneys.  The attorney will likely place a charging lien on the case for their time they have spent working on your case.  The money that they're owed will come from either your portion of the settlement or the new attorney's fee.  It is frustrating for you if your attorney is not calling you back to answer your questions.  Many larger firms use paralegals or legal assistants to communicate with clients, and the client rarely hears from the lawyer.  Rest assured this does not happen at our firm. 

Is there anything that I can do if the person who hit me does not have insurance? 

The short answer is yes. Although sometimes impractical, you do always have can file a lawsuit and get a money judgment against an uninsured person.  However, if the person does not have any money or assets then filing a lawsuit may be cost prohibitive.  You may have purchased uninsured motorist coverage with your own insurance company and not even know it.  Uninsured motorist coverage pays money to you if the person who hit you does not have insurance.  We can tell you whether or not you have uninsured motorist coverage, because we will call your insurance company for you.
