How do Intersection Collisions Occur in South Florida?
Serious accidents can happen at just about any traffic intersection that is located in South Florida – even those that are controlled by traffic signals and other types of traffic control devices. These accidents occur when a negligent driver runs a stop sign, yield sign, or red traffic light in an attempt to get through the intersection quickly. These intersection accidents can also happen when a motor vehicle operator is distracted by a cell phone or other electronic device that is in the vehicle – or when the driver is under the influence of alcohol or drugs at the time of the collision.
Compensable Damages in a South Florida Intersection Collision Accident
If you have been involved in a South Florida intersection accident, there are several types of monetary compensation that you may be able to pursue as part of your personal injury case. In most car accident claims, accident victims will first need to turn to their own insurance company for personal injury protection (PIP) benefits. If the cost of medical treatment and/or lost wages exceeds their PIP coverage, they may be able to make a claim against the at-fault driver’s motor vehicle insurance coverage.
The ultimate value of a personal injury case stemming from an intersection accident depends upon various factors, including the nature of the injuries, the cost and extent of the medical treatment involved, and whether or not a permanent injury was suffered in the accident. Potential damages include monetary compensation for:
- Medical expenses
- Loss of earnings
- Loss of earning capacity
- Pain and suffering
- Loss of use of a body part
- Loss of enjoyment of life
- Permanent disability
