Car Accidents

Helping seriously injured victims of car accidents throughout Florida, including Fort Lauderdale, Miami, Plantation, Naples, Tampa, the Palm Beaches and the Florida Keys

Florida Car Accident Attorney

The physical and emotional trauma of being the victim of a car accident can affect you for your entire life. Victims of car accidents involving intersectional crashes, roller-overs, rear-end crashes require serious, experienced and dedicated attorneys to help them recover the full amount of their damages. For more than twenty-five years, Miami Car Accident Attorney Joseph I. Lipsky, has dedicated himself to helping those seriously injured victims of Florida car accidents pick up the pieces of their lives and move forward from their injuries. Mr. Lipsky has recovered tens of millions of dollars as compensation for his injured clients through trial and settlement.

Whether you are the victim of a rear-end collision, an intersectional, or T-bone accident, a rollover, or the victim of a hit-and-run or the victim of a drunk driver, car accidents in Fort Lauderdale are serious matters.

Also, because car accidents also involve insurance matters, such as UM, or uninsured motorist cases, Fort Lauderdale Car Accident Attorney Joseph I. Lipsky can also help with car accident related insurance problems. UM cases involve an injured person suing their own car insurance company when the person who negligently caused a crash does not have any, or enough, insurance to fully pay a client’s damages. Needless to say, considering the thousands of either uninsured, or underinsured drivers in Florida, uninsured motorist insurance is some of the most valuable and necessary insurance coverage. And, even though uninsured motorist coverage is not required in Florida, insurance companies are required to offer it to everyone they insure. Thereafter, in order for the insurance company not to include uninsured motorist coverage on their policy, they are required to have their insured sign a written rejection of such coverage. We strongly recommend you purchase as much of this valuable uninsured motorist insurance as possible.

In addition to the car accident itself, personal injuries also occur because of negligently designed vehicles and their components. Some of the more common types of vehicle defects include poorly operating seatbelts, air bags which malfunction and improperly wearing tires.

Car accidents result in serious and debilitating injuries, including neck and back injuries, broken bones, amputations, traumatic brain injuries (TBIs), scarring, spinal trauma, fractures, traumatic amputation, concussions and paraplegia. These injuries often cause significant stress upon you and your family. Fort Lauderdale Car Accident Lawyer Joseph Lipsky uses his more than twenty-five years of Florida car accident legal experience to get you all of the compensation you are entitled to, so you can start to pick up the pieces of your life. That compensation includes:

  • Unpaid medical bills
  • Lost wages and income
  • Pain and Suffering
  • Disability
  • Disfigurement
  • Loss of Enjoyment of Life

Victims of car accidents who have smaller, but also painful injuries, such as back strains or sprains, are required to be diagnosed by their doctor as suffering a permanent injury before they are legally entitled to pursue a claim for pain and suffering. For this reason, and to obtain needed medical care, Florida car accident victims should get prompt medical care for their injuries. Immediate medical care will enable treating orthopedic surgeons, neurologists and therapists to properly document injuries and the affects they have on the accident victim; and to assess whether you have an emergency medical condition, which will entitle an injured victim to more coverage under the personal injury protection, or PIP, portion of a car insurance policy. As such, it is imperative that accident victims seek immediate medical attention for their injuries, so their treating doctors, including orthopedic surgeons and neurologists may adequately document their medical records to prove the permanent affects that even “minor” injuries have on an accident victim’s life.

Having helped thousands of victims of car accidents recover tens of millions of dollars in damages, Fort Lauderdale Car Accident Attorney Joseph Lipsky understands your needs and is dedicated to helping his clients get their maximum compensation for their medical bills, lost wages, and pain and suffering, through a jury trial if necessary, from the person or business, and their insurance company, who caused your car accident.
