If you have been injured in a Ft. Lauderdale car accident it’s important that you consult with an experienced, qualified personal injury law firm to ensure that your rights are protected. Recent changes in Florida law now limit your ability to get a medical evaluation to 14 days from the date of the accident. If you don’t seek medical attention within that time frame you could lose your right to file a claim under your own Personal Injury Protection policy or pursue a personal injury lawsuit.
We know that if you have been seriously injured in a car accident this is a time of confusion, frustration, pain and probably financial stress. Not knowing what to do next and wondering if you can recover all of your expenses makes the experience even more painful.

Lauderdale’s premiere personal injury law firm we can help you get back to your “regular” life quickly and protect your rights under the law to recover compensation for your injury.

Find Out What Your Next Step Should Be!
With a car accident that results in injury, time is of the essence. Not only is there the 14 day deadline on getting medical evaluation, personal injury lawsuits require investigation and the more time that passes the more difficult an accident becomes to investigate. Never count on just the police report as the “sole source” of information regarding the accident. Often police reports are missing key elements because police are interested in getting the basics and then getting traffic moving again. Witnesses need to be interviewed, photos need to be evaluated and the defendant’s record needs to be examined.
