    Experience Matters in a Car Accident Case - Attorney David I. Fuchs has 30+ Years

    The insurance companies know what they’re doing, so you need a Fort Lauderdale car accident attorney to lead you through the claims process too.

    David Fuchs began practicing law in 1988, and he applies the knowledge gained to both the professional and personal experience. His negotiation skills are what make him stand out in the legal industry and they make him a force with the insurance companies. In fact, his technique is so effective that he trains his staff to use the same strategy.

    His primary objective is getting you the compensation you deserve after a car accident, but he also knows the short-term needs that come with a car accident injury. If your vehicle is out of commission, he’ll help you get it repaired and set you up with a rental car at no charge to you. In addition, you will always speak with a Fort Lauderdale car accident lawyer about your case, not an assistant or paralegal.

    Is it Worth Hiring a Car Accident Lawyer in Fort Lauderdale?

    Even minor car accidents can result in costly expenses. The financial burden should fall on the liable party’s shoulders, not yours.

    Car crashes can be traumatic, and they vary in severity. In fact, you should hire an attorney even for minor accidents because they can still require you to pay extensive fees. Furthermore, if you’re unfamiliar with the claims process, insurance companies can take advantage of you and limit the compensation you deserve by negotiating low offers.

    This leaves you with an unfair compensation to cover your injuries, repairs, and pain and suffering. A car accident attorney can examine your case, reconstruct the accident with experts, and prove the at-fault party’s negligence.

    There are numerous forms of compensation depending on the details of your car accident case and going through this process alone will limit the amount you could receive. That being said, it’s always worth hiring an auto wreck attorney in Fort Lauderdale, especially if your car insurance can’t cover your damages entirely, requiring you to sue the at-fault party for your losses.

    Me. Fuchs was my car accident attorney and was very responsive from the first call. I had medical care the next day and the whole process was smooth. They handled everything with the insurance companies and coordinated all of the necessary medical information. It was a long process and in the end the settlement I received was much higher than anticipated I am more than happy and grateful for the outcome.

    2 Our Process

    Proving Negligence & Liability - Our Unique Approach

    You may not remember every detail of your car accident, but we’ve done this long enough to help uncover what’s been forgotten.

    Determining who caused your auto accident and who is financially liable for your losses is key in any car accident claim. Car accident attorney David Fuchs puts his 30 years of experience to work and brings in his expert resources to dissect the scene of the accident to find those at fault.

    We use the evidence we uncover to prove to the auto insurance companies, or jury if it goes to trial, that someone else is to blame and there is money out there that you are owed.

    Recreating the Scene of the Crash

    We recreate the accident scene using accident reconstructionist experts. In addition, we’ll track down and speak with eyewitnesses and passengers of cars that may have been involved to help us determine exactly what caused the car accident and who caused it.

    3 Building your case

    Assessing the Damage – Find Out How Much Your Car Accident Case is Worth

    You’ve already spent enough on your auto accident. Let us add up the damages to increase the value of your claim and help you make up for what was lost.

    Your primary concern is healing your injuries, but you are likely also concerned about covering the medical bills that are piling up as well. If you are unable to work, you may wonder how you’ll pay your mortgage and other bills too. Our Fort Lauderdale auto accident attorneys can help by determining the value of your car accident case and sending a strong demand to the third-party insurance company.

    Step one

    Examining Your Medical Records

    We want to make sure you receive a just amount for your car injury compensation. So, we’ll review your medical records and the bills that have been sent so far. We frequently work with Broward Health Medical Center and Broward Health North as trauma centers that treat people who have sustained injuries in car accidents. In addition, we’ll look to see if your doctors have referred you to a specialist for future treatments.

    Injuries you have sustained could include:

    We’ll even call your doctors & try to get your bills <span>reduced,</span>

    We’ll even call your doctors & try to get your bills reduced,

    to be paid when you get a settlement or verdict.
    Step Two

    Looking at the Impact of Your Injury

    In addition to the medical expenses and physical pain, your injuries can take things away, or heavily impact what was once normal about your life.

    We will work with your doctors to determine what ongoing symptoms, disability, disfigurement, or other impacts from your injuries.

    These impacts from your injuries are considered pain and suffering. This can be calculated in many ways, but it includes the following:

    • Mental anguish caused
    • Continual physical pain
    • Inability to work for a time
    • Difficulty enjoying life
    You <span>deserve</span> compensation

    You deserve compensation

    for those losses as well.
    Step Three

    Adding up the Damage Done to Your Car

    If your car was severely damaged after a crash, you are likely limited in where you can go and you may feel like you have little freedom. Fort Lauderdale accident attorney David I. Fuchs can help you get a rental car at no cost so you can get back to work, school, and other activities as quickly as possible.

    Then, we will get estimates for the repair or replacement of your car and demand that the car insurance company cover those immediately.

    Damage to your vehicle can vary depending on the type of collision you were in. Common collisions include:

    • T-Bone Collisions
    • Head-on Collisions
    • Rear-end Accidents
    • Rollover Accidents
    Sometimes we can even get <span>property damage covered</span> before we settle

    4 Pursuing Compensation

    Getting the Money You Deserve After a Car Accident

    The proof is in the results – and David Fuchs has won millions after car crashes and other types of auto accidents.
    Option 1

    Negotiating with the Insurance Company for a Settlement

    With 30 years of experience negotiating with car insurance companies, accident lawyer David I. Fuchs will use his knowledge to obtain the best car accident settlement possible for you. His negotiation skills are top-notch. He understands how the insurance companies calculate their offers, and he will push them to get you even more.

    Compensatory Damages

    Compensatory damages are directly related to the injuries, lost wages, and repair costs from your accident.

    Punitive Damages

    Punitive damages are instilled to punish the at-fault party on account of their negligence. These damages include pain & suffering and are meant to prevent further negligence.

    Personal Injury Protection

    In the state of Florida, you are required to have personal injury protection/no-fault insurance. Regardless of who is at fault, personal injury protection can help pay for medical expenses and, in some cases, lost wages.

    However, this protection only accounts for up to $10,000. For even minor accidents, your bills can exceed that amount due to medical treatment, vehicle repairs, or emergency transportation.

    David Fuch’s negotiation skills are top-notch. He understands how the insurance companies calculate their offers, and he will push them to get you even more to cover these damages.

    We will go back and forth for as long as it takes

    Option 2

    Take Your Car Accident Case to Trial if Needed

    If the insurance company refuses a fair settlement, our car accident lawyers will take them to court. In fact, we may even file a lawsuit just to impose pressure upon them. Many insurance companies think you’re too afraid to go to court, but Fort Lauderdale auto accident attorney David Fuchs is not.

    5 Next Steps

    Car Accident FAQs

    In the state of Florida, you have four years from the time your accident occurred to file a personal injury claim against the at-fault drivers’ insurance. This means that you need to act fast so that our accident attorneys can examine your case and determine the amount of compensation that can potentially be owed to you.

    You may request a crash report with the Florida Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles on their website. You have to wait ten days from the date of your crash before the report is made available. You can also obtain an accident report from the Fort Lauderdale Police Department.

    Although Florida is a “No-Fault” state, liability still plays a crucial role in car accident claims in Fort Lauderdale, and you can still sue the at-fault party for your losses. Personal injury protection coverage only covers up to $10,000, and if the other party involved is liable, you can sue them for your losses.

    Collision insurance will cover your car repairs if your vehicle collides with another vehicle, hits an obstruction, or involves rolling or falling over. Your collision insurance will not cover any damage to another car or your medical bills.

    Every day that goes by costs you more.
