    After a car accident, you should seek help from an experienced car accident attorney.  The effects of a car crash could leave you out of work and facing substantial expenses for medical bills and car repairs.  Getting these damages paid at their full value is vital.

    Often, insurance in Florida pays only a fraction of the damages you could be entitled to.  For serious injuries, you can often claim pain and suffering and other damages beyond what insurance is willing to pay.  Speak with a lawyer about how to progress with your case.

    For a free case review, call The Law Offices of David I. Fuchs, Injury & Accident Lawyer, P.A. today at (954) 866-1750.  Our car accident lawyers are ready to help.

    Getting Full Compensation for a Boca Raton Car Accident Case

    Filing your case through your own no-fault insurance in Florida often pays only a fraction of the damages you are owed.  First, this compensation is usually capped at $10,000 unless you pay for a higher insurance policy.  Second, these benefits require you to pay a deductible – which means paying out of pocket for insurance coverage that you already pay a premium for to cover injuries that someone else caused you.  Additionally, these damages are capped at a percentage of your full medical expenses and lost wages, and they include no coverage for pain and suffering damages.

    In any case where you file solely through your insurance, this means that you cannot get your damages compensated in full.  If you have “serious injuries” under Florida’s no-fault rules, that means you could be entitled to additional compensation for pain and suffering, which you can claim through a lawsuit.

    Working with our car accident attorneys to file a lawsuit is often the best way to get your damages paid in full.  Without a lawsuit, you could be left with only a portion of your damages covered and out-of-pocket expenses that you should not have to pay if someone else caused the crash.

    When to Call a Car Accident Lawyer After a Crash in Boca Raton, FL

    You should contact a lawyer as soon as you can after your accident.  In any case where you are injured, it is often worth it to have a lawyer on your side who can help calculate damages, determine what your case should be worth, and pursue damages from the at-fault driver to cover your costs in full.

    Waiting too long to call a lawyer can cause problems for your case in a few ways.

    Collecting Fresh Evidence

    First, some evidence can be lost or deleted if you delay taking your case to a lawyer.  Our attorneys often look for evidence in surprising places, such as security footage from nearby stores that might have caught the crash on film.  Security footage is often overwritten within a few days, and if we do not act quickly, we might not be able to secure the evidence.  Additionally, witnesses forget what happened over time, especially if they were merely witnesses and not actually involved in the accident.  The sooner we can interview them and take statements, the stronger the evidence will be in your case.

    Meeting Filing Deadlines

    Second, there are filing deadlines you need to be aware of for your case.  All injury cases in Florida are required to be filed within 4 years of the date of the accident.  While this seems like a long time, it can take quite some time to compile evidence, meet about your case, and draft the paperwork to file a strong, secure injury claim.  It is best to call a lawyer well in advance of that 4-year filing deadline.

    Avoiding Delays

    Third, any delays in calling a lawyer will also delay how long it takes to get you the damages you need.  Calling our car accident attorneys as soon as you can after the crash allows us to start building your case and get the claim filed sooner, resulting in it potentially getting paid sooner as well.  Especially if you are left out of work and without the resources to cover your medical expenses and other day-to-day expenses, getting the damages you need as soon as you can will be vital.  While insurance can often pay some of your damages quickly as part of your no-fault coverage, it will not pay for everything, and you will need the rest of the damages you are owed before long.

    Damages Available in a Boca Raton Car Accident Case

    If you were injured in a car accident, you could be entitled to three main areas of damages: lost wages, medical expenses, and pain and suffering.  However, some of these damages – such as pain and suffering – may be limited or blocked entirely unless you have “serious injuries.”  Talk to our car accident lawyers about what it means to meet that serious injury threshold and to determine what damages might be available in your specific case.

    Lost Wages

    Car accident victims who are left with injuries that prevent them from returning to work can face substantial financial harm from lost wages.  Whether you were out of work during a short recovery period or you are left with disabilities that prevent you from earning wages, our car accident lawyers can fight for lost wages in your case.

    Medical Bills

    The expenses you faced from medical care can be incredibly expensive, and they will likely burst past the $10,000 no-fault limit in many injury cases.  For help getting these damages compensated, speak with our car accident attorneys.

    Pain and Suffering

    Proving pain and suffering damages is often complex, as these damages cannot be shown with bills or financial statements.  Instead, your testimony about the accident and its effects on your life will be vital to proving how much your damages are worth for pain and suffering, emotional distress, and other “non-economic” damages in this category.

    “…the settlement I received was much higher than anticipated”

    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.

    “…they didn’t settle for anything and my boyfriend and I got what we deserved.”

    I got in an accident in December 2021 when everyone was short staffed and insurance companies was not responsive. My boyfriend reached out to David F. and what a life changing experience. We had the pleasure of having all our worries handed to professional help. They worked diligently on our case, answered questions when asked and kept us updated on changes. More importantly they didn’t settle for anything and my boyfriend and I got what we deserved. I have dealt with others in the past but David got me the most according to the facts presented and never backed down when the insurance companies tried to make us settle for less. Thank you David, Jessica and the team for all your effort and hard work. I will recommend them to family and friends. [They’re] the best in town!

    “Mr. Fuchs is one of the hardest working attorneys that I know.”

    Mr. Fuchs is one of the hardest working attorneys that I know. He is really good at what he does and puts 110% in you case. I have been using him for 19 years now and refer all my friends to him. I can leave him alone with my case and not call him all the time. I know he is working hard in my case. When he has any information he calls me and we go from there. There are not a lot of attorneys I can do that with! If you have any Personal Injuries please do call him. You won’t be disappointed!!
