Davie Car Accident Lawyer
Every time we get behind the wheel, we owe everyone else on the road a duty to drive safely. However, other drivers don’t always give us the same courtesy. Their negligent or reckless driving can cause car accidents, injuring people in both vehicles and causing a lot of property damage. Other times, car accidents are caused by poor road conditions and the real party at fault is the local agency that hasn’t made the area safe for motorists.
No matter how your car accident occurred, a Davie car accident lawyer from Phillips | Tadros, P.A. can help you recover compensation for medical bills, lost income, and more. Contact our office today at (954) 642-8885 to learn more about how we can fight for you.
How We Can Help With Your Car Accident Case
A lawyer from our firm can file insurance claims and negotiate a fair settlement on your behalf. We handle the legal tasks of collecting evidence and investigating liability, but we also work hard to maximize your claim by exhausting all potential sources of compensation.
For car accidents, Florida is a no-fault state. That means you’re generally required to file an insurance claim with your own auto insurance provider to get the money you need to pay for medical treatment and repairing or replacing your vehicle. We can make sure your claim is accurate, thorough, and on time. We can also negotiate with your insurance company to fight for what you deserve.
Florida insurance laws also allow us to file an insurance claim with an at-fault motorist’s policy if you suffer a serious injury. Florida Statutes § 316.027 defines a “serious injury” as one that:
- Poses a serious risk of death
- Causes significant scarring or disfigurement
- Results in substantial loss of function in a limb, organ, or other body parts
If a third party is responsible for the hazard or condition that caused your accident, we can file a liability claim against them. For example, if you hit an unavoidable pothole that caused your accident, you may have a claim against the local government in charge of maintaining safe roadways. If, however, a car part, like your brakes, malfunctions and causes an accident, the manufacturer could be liable.

We’ll add up these costs to determine your potential settlement:

- How long you were out of work for recovery
- The type and severity of your injuries
We leave no stone unturned when it comes to identifying the ways the accident has affected and will continue to affect your life.
A Car Accident Lawyers Is Critical
Insurance companies don’t make money from paying out valid claims. They could offer you far less than what your case is really worth. If you’re filing a claim against the negligent driver or third party, the insurance company may try to blame you for the accident and deny your claim.
Getting a car accident lawyer in Davie from Phillips | Tadros, P.A. can show these insurance companies that you’re serious about getting the compensation you need and deserve. We have experience representing insurance companies, but now we serve victims by fighting the tactics insurance companies use to make it hard for victims to get the financial help they need.

You Can Get Compensation for Your Car Accident Injuries

You May Have a Limited Time to Settle Your Car Accident Claim
In general, you have four years from the date of your car accident to file a personal injury lawsuit (Florida Statutes § 95.11).
