Florida Car Accident Lawyer

Professional Legal Help After a Wreck

Terrible car accidents happen across the streets of Fort Myers every day. The most frustrating thing about these wrecks is that most of them are entirely avoidable. Drivers who are not paying attention, on their cell phones, who are aggressive, and drunk, not taking their duty of care owed to other motorists seriously. They make poor decisions and cause innocent people to suffer life-changing injuries when they are negligent.

Our experienced Florida car accident lawyers at Dellutri Law Group think it is horrible to let bad drivers make such unforgivable mistakes. If you were hit by a driver who should’ve been more careful, we want to know about it. With our help, you can hold them accountable for the damage and losses they caused to you and your family.

When to Hire a Florida Car Accident Lawyer

Is hiring a car accident attorney something that should always be done after a crash? Maybe not, but in many cases, yes. Our Florida car accident lawyer can help you decide if it would be worth hiring us for your car accident claim. We will always give you honest and transparent answers.

You most likely need to hire a Florida car accident attorney if:

  • You or someone else suffered serious injuries in the car accident.
  • Someone passed away in the car accident.
  • Your vehicle or someone else’s was totaled.
  • The other insurance company is trying to get you to sign a settlement offer right away.
  • You are uncomfortable with insurance claims and legal procedures.

Florida PIP Insurance Requirements

Florida is one of a few states that require drivers to carry personal injury protection (PIP) auto insurance, which must be used first.

In Florida, drivers must carry:

  • $10,000 PIP insurance: This insurance coverage is used to pay for your medical costs and lost wages.
  • $10,000 PDL insurance: This insurance coverage – Property Damage Liability – is used to pay for the vehicle repairs and related costs of the vehicle you ran into.

Under this no-fault insurance system, after a car accident, you have to use your PIP/PDL insurance to seek coverage before taking a claim against the other driver. Furthermore, you must be seriously injured in a car accident to make a claim against another driver.

Our Florida lawyers work with your medical professionals to determine the personal injuries sustained in the crash. Once you complete your medical care, we aggressively pursue the insurance company for the at-fault driver.

Common Causes of Car Accidents in Florida

As mentioned, the majority of car accidents are entirely preventable. The root cause among most of them is commonplace negligence and human error. However, failure can take many forms. Dellutri Law Group in Fort Myers, Florida, knows how to handle car accident cases that involve all types of negligence.

The negligence that might have caused your car accident could include:

  • Driving while distracted

We can also help you if your car accident was caused by an auto part defect. In such a case, you will have to make a case against the automaker, which could be a significant challenge. So prepare for it with our team right by your side.
