Let Us Deal with Insurance Companies
We know how difficult and frustrating it can be to deal with insurance companies and their harsh adjusters. They look for every possible way to lower your settlement and ensure you are getting the lowest amount of money possible. When they come to you with a settlement, it will likely be a low ball offer, and they will try to push you to settle your injury claim for much less than you deserve.
Insurance companies are in the business of making money, not fairly compensating you for your injuries. They make money when they keep profits high and costs low. As a result, they will do whatever they can to minimize the value of your claim. If possible, they will even deny it entirely. Sound stressful? Unfair? The last thing you need when you are recovering from a car accident is the hassle of dealing with an insurance company. Instead of dealing with insurance companies on your own, hire an experienced Boca Raton car accident lawyer to help you fight for the compensation you deserve.The team at Leifer Law Firm never backs down, and we routinely take on some of the largest insurance companies in the world.
Common Causes of Car Accidents
There are millions of car accidents that occur throughout the country each year. While some are just minor fender benders resulting in no injuries, there are still thousands who are treated in local emergency rooms and hundreds that die. With today’s technology, there is a greater emphasis on safety. The causes of car accidents can vary greatly, but it is important for everyone to understand what those common causes are.
Distracted driving is becoming such a common concern that the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) are launching campaigns to stop it. It is estimated that more than 9 people are killed each day in the United States due to distracted driving, and more than 1,000 are injured.
Distracted driving is any type of activity that takes a driver’s attention away from the road, even for a brief second, which can lead to a devastating accident. Distracted driving can include a variety of things, such as:
- Talking to passengers in the vehicle
- Talking on a cellphone
- Changing the radio station
- Setting the navigation system
- Eating or drinking
- Applying makeup, brushing hair or even shaving while driving
- Handing something to a child or passenger in the backseat
Texting and Driving
Texting while driving is a part of distracted driving, but it has become so serious that most people consider it a category all on its own. While Florida has laws against texting and driving, there are plenty of drivers out there that choose to do it anyway. The large majority of those drivers being under the age of 20.
Drinking and Driving
Even with all of the programs out there and awareness, there are still plenty of accidents in Florida caused by drunk driving.
Florida as well as other states is handing down harsher criminal punishments for those who still choose to drink and drive, but that doesn’t offer compensation to those injured by drunken drivers. That is why these injured victims turn to the assistance of a skilled car accident attorney.
These days everyone seems to be in a hurry—and it shows. States are raising their maximum speed limit on highways hoping drivers will no longer recklessly speed, but it isn’t doing much.
Speeding is still one of the most common causes for deadly accidents on the highways and roads in Florida. Unfortunately, the most common culprits of these accidents are teenage drivers who feel speeding is exhilarating and do not care much about responsibility.
Reckless driving is still common. From ignoring street signs to weaving in and out of traffic, it is still a common cause for accidents in Florida. Some of the more common types of reckless driving seen include:
- Failure to signal
- Crossing crosswalk with pedestrians
- Speeding in residential or school zones
- Failure to yield
- Running a stop sign or red light
- Road rage
You May be Entitled to Compensation – Regardless of the Cause
If you or a loved one was injured in one of these common types of accidents, then you may be entitled to a settlement for your injury. The team at Leifer Law Firm wants to help you with your case. We may be able to seek a settlement for:
- Medical Bills
- Long-Term Care

Damages You May be Entitled To
Regardless of the type of accident you have encountered, if you have injuries, you may be entitled to a settlement. The attorneys at Leifer Law Firm can help you recover compensation for things like:
Medical Costs – Medical bills can include emergency room visits, x-rays, radiology reports, hospital bills and care, surgeries, physical therapies and rehabilitative care, appointments, and medications.
Future Medical Costs – You may have medical costs long after the car accident. Our attorneys can get compensation for those future medical costs so that you do not have out-of-pocket expenses.
Lost Wages – If you have to take time away from work to recover, our attorneys will help secure compensation for those lost wages. We will also assess any future loss of earnings.
If you are partially disabled or permanently disabled and must change jobs, we will ensure the insurance company helps pay for the loss of earning capacity in the future, too.
Pain and Suffering – If you have physical or emotional pain because of the accident, you may be entitled to pain and suffering compensation as well. You will have to prove the nature of the injury and the associated pain, how long you have endured it, and how long you will continue to endure until the pain and suffering subsides.
