Does Fault Matter in a Bartow Car Accident Case?

According to Florida law, the motorist who causes the accident is liable for the damages they caused. At-fault motorists must pay property and personal damages to all victims – but these funds typically come from their insurance provider. Fault is a very important factor in your Bartow car accident claim, so you must ensure your accident is reported and investigated properly. Determining fault in a car crash is attributing responsibility for the incident to a particular party. In a car crash, fault is another way of saying the at-fault party has acted negligently.

Common forms of negligent driving include:

  • Speeding
  • Tailgating
  • Distracted Driving
  • Driving Under the Influence

In many cases, the at-fault driver acted negligently when they could have averted the accident. Negligent driving is essentially a failure to meet the obligation required of a licensed driver. If you were involved in a car crash with a negligent driver, you are entitled to fair compensation for your injuries.

Common Car Accident Injuries

You don’t have to be involved in a serious car accident to be seriously injured. A minor car crash could leave you banged and bruised enough to require physical therapy and serious medical bills. You could be out of work for months, and even after months of rehabilitation, your pain and suffering could be chronic.

Common car accident injuries can include:

  • Broken Bones: Legs, arms, wrists, and noses are common bones injured or broken in car accidents.
  • Head Injuries: Concussions or traumatic brain injury (TBI) are commonly seen in car crashes. The recovery time ranges, with many victims suffering chronic pain.
  • Whiplash: Commonly seen in rear-end accidents, whiplash is an injury caused by strained muscles in the neck.

Many drivers in car accidents ignore the aches and pains that can be common after a car crash, but it’s not wise to ever ignore muscle strain, sprains, or other minor injuries, as they could worsen if left untreated. These common injuries are reported after minor crashes. A more severe car crash can lead to catastrophic injury or even death.

At Advocate Law Firm, P.A., we advise our Bartow car crash clients to seek medical attention immediately after an accident. Visiting a doctor immediately will ensure you aren’t in danger from your injuries, and you will be given important documentation to help strengthen your case.

  • I couldn't have asked for more!

    I just want to publicly show my gratitude to Ms. Salvia and the rest of the team that worked on my recent case. I really felt I was represented well by Ms. Salvia and she took the lead in making strong points for my case. She was able to properly vocalize what I needed and look out for things that I didn't even consider. She is very experienced. I couldn't have asked for more. Thank you so much for help and professionalism.

  • Martha and the rest of the team constantly kept me in the loop of all that was occurring

    There was never a time that I was alone in my divorce process. The staff/team was in contact communication with me. Any questions, concerns or issues I may have had, they were front and center ready to help me through the process and educate me on what the next steps were. Divorce in and of itself is a very emotional, trying and frustrating process. Martha and the rest of the team constantly kept me in the loop of all that was occurring, what was needed, any changes that were coming and how to properly handle them. Thank you so much for making a stressful and life changing event, easier to navigate.

  • Honesty, integrity and a fighter!

    I don't typically write reviews however, in this "case" it is warranted. Having gone through a protracted and tumultuous divorce lasting almost five years would leave any living and breathing human hating lawyers even their own. well, I must say I am left with a gratitude for all the hard work, patience and guidance given me throughout my process. I would recommend Melissa Wilson to anyone that is looking for Honesty, integrity and a fighter where it counts... CASE CLOSED!!!! and so is mine. cant forget Martha her assistant, taking my calls always and listening to me vent. Thank you all in that office Sincerely Niko
