Fighting For Victim's Rights After A Crash

Drivers in the U.S. are required to have some form of motor vehicle insurance before getting behind the wheel. However, some studies estimate that one in every seven drivers is uninsured. Auto accidents are stressful enough without having to fret over whether or not the other driver's insurance is able to cover your injuries. If you've been involved in a hit-and-run, the situation can be even more complicated.

At The Rudman Law Group, we help motorists throughout South Florida recover after they're injured in serious accidents. We know what it takes to help you deal with your injuries, and we know how to work with insurance companies so that you get the fair compensation you deserve.

Making Sure You're Covered

For Florida motorists, the minimum coverage is $10,000 personal injury protection (PIP) and $10,000 property damage liability (PDL). The PIP insurance covers you regardless of fault and covers the costs of medical treatment and lost wages, in addition to incidental costs, but stops short of providing compensation for pain and suffering or future medical costs and lost wages. Florida also offers bodily injury liability (BIL) insurance, which provides compensation in the case of serious or catastrophic permanent injury or death.

If you've been in a crash with an uninsured motorist and you don't have uninsured motorist (UM) coverage, you're limited to recovering compensation as mandated in your PIP coverage. This means that you won't have the ability to recover funds for future medical treatments, future lost wages or the multitude of other costs associated with your recovery.

At our firm, we can help you deal with your insurance after a crash. We can push your case so that you recover the maximum amount possible towards your rehabilitation. When necessary, we will make claims against your insurance so that you are fully covered.

As our client, we will also answer your questions and help you determine how to best structure your coverage so that your claims aren't limited in the event of a serious accident.
