Car accidents happen for many reasons, but the cause is usually the same: negligence.
Your accident may be the fault of a negligent driver, a defective manufacturer’s part, or even dangerous road design or debris.
We will protect your rights and help you seek compensation from the at-fault party, your insurance coverage, or both.
You should not have to suffer twice after a car accident that was not your fault. Call Ben Crump Law, PLLC, today for a free case evaluation with one of our car accident lawyers serving Miami Beach: 800-598-7557.
Why You Should Consult a Car Accident Lawyer
You are not obligated to hire a car accident lawyer, but there are several benefits for you if you do.
A Lawyer Helps You Through Florida’s Unusual Liability and Negligence Laws
Florida has a “no-fault” system that uses your own Personal Injury Protection (PIP) insurance coverage. Your coverage pays for the first $10,000 in bodily injury damages, even if you did not cause the accident.
If your PIP coverage is not enough to pay all your medical bills and related expenses, it may be time to call a car accident lawyer serving Miami Beach.
A Car Accident Lawyer Can Help Recover Compensation from the At-Fault Party
Our car accident lawyers at Ben Crump Law, PLLC, help people recover a financial award for significant injuries.
You may be entitled to additional compensation if you have a significant injury such as:
- Loss of a limb.
- Permanent disability.
- Organ damage, loss, or the loss of a bodily function.
- Blindness or another sensory loss.
Florida has a broad definition of “significant injury,” so it is best to consult a car accident lawyer about your case.
A Car Accident Lawyer Stands up to the Insurance Company
If you are getting frustrated with your own insurance company, a car accident lawyer can help you get the benefits that you deserve. Our car accident attorneys serving Miami Beach are familiar with some of the tactics that an insurance company may employ to avoid paying your rightful compensation. These include:
- Denying the validity of your injuries.
- Making you wait an unreasonable time to process your claim.
- Pressuring you into accepting inadequate compensation.

What We Do to Help You
It is our experience that most at-fault drivers do not readily admit wrongdoing. Also, the insurance company for the other party might be reluctant to pay for your injuries. After all, insurance companies make money by collecting premiums and paying as little in benefits as possible.
A car accident lawyer with Ben Crump Law, PLLC, can use the strength and resources of our firm to build a strong and compelling case. This may include:
- Requesting accident and police reports.
- Reviewing witness statements and arrange for additional interviews if necessary.
- Examining photos, videos, and other evidence from the accident scene.
- Talking to your doctor about your injuries and your expected prognosis.
- Obtaining any drug or alcohol test results from the at-fault driver.
- Investigating the other driver’s history including past violations or similar accidents.
We also will ask you for a detailed account of what happened before, during, and after the accident. Everything you discuss with your attorney is privileged information. We want you to feel comfortable and confident as we pursue compensation and justice for you and your family.
Awarding Compensation After a Car Accident
You could be awarded compensation if a lawyer proves negligence from another driver, a defective product, or hazardous road conditions.
The financial award one receives from a car accident might include:
- Medical treatment both current and future.
- Prescription medicine, medical and adaptive devices.
- Property damage including temporary transportation such as car rentals.
- Lost pay.
- Pain and suffering.
You might also be awarded compensation for:
- Diminished earning capacity if your injuries prevent you from working.
- Lifecare expenses.
- Diminished quality of life.
- Loss of companionship, consortium, protection, or guidance.
The type and amount of award depend on the severity of your injuries, your prognosis, and the circumstances of your accident.
