There are several types of motor vehicle accident claims.

Common Claims in Vehicle Lawsuits
Most motor vehicle lawsuits are based on negligence. This means that someone else acted in a way that they should not and you suffered an injury. Common examples include reckless drivers, intoxicated drivers, and other wrongful behavior like speeding or running a light. Claims can often be made against an automobile manufacturer for faulty parts. If you are in an accident and sustain injuries due to faulty airbags, tires, seat belts, accelerators, or another part of the car, you might have a claim against your auto manufacturer. Unfortunately, another common type of motor vehicle accident claim is wrongful death.

Motor Vehicle Accident Injury Settlements and Verdicts
Each motor vehicle accident is unique. In many cases, the basic insurance required by the state of Florida will not cover the costs of medical treatment. As a result, additional litigation is required to cover current and future medical costs, loss of earning capacity, and compensation for pain and suffering. Our experienced motor vehicle accident lawyers have successfully represented our clients in several bicycle, car, truck, and motorcycle accident settlements:
- A 1.95 million settlement on a bicycle accident in Deerfield Beach. The client was clipped by a national water company vehicle, sustaining significant injuries in a de-gloving of her foot.
- $850,000 settlement on a loss of limb as a result of a car accident at a car detailing shop.
- $325,000 settlement in a trucking accident that resulted in the need for a lower back surgery.
- $411,000 settlement in a trial and verdict case for a client that was involved in an intersectional collision in Boynton Beach and sustained a herniated disk without surgery.
