Q: What should I do if I am involved in a car accident?
A: If you are involved in a car accident, it is important to stay at the scene and call 911 or the Fort Lauderdale Police. Seek medical attention for any injuries, and exchange information with the other driver. Take photos of the accident scene and damage to both vehicles. Contact a car accident lawyer to discuss your legal options.
Q: How much does it cost to hire a car accident lawyer?
A: Many car accident lawyers work on a contingency fee basis, which means that they only get paid if you receive compensation for your injuries. The fee is typically a percentage of the amount recovered, usually ranging from 33% to 40%.
Q: What kind of compensation can I receive for my car accident injuries?
A: You may be able to receive compensation for medical bills, lost wages, property damage, pain and suffering, and other accident-related costs. The amount of compensation you can receive for your car accident injuries depends on several factors, such as the severity of your injuries, insurance coverage, medical costs, and the impact the accident has had on your life.
