Motor vehicle accidents are on the rise in overcrowded cities like Miami, and all over South Florida. People rush to get from place-to-place and don't consider other drivers on the road. If you've been injured by a negligent or careless driver, our attorneys have 50 years of combined experience in fighting for the motor vehicle accident compensation you rightfully deserve.

For every safe driver, there is another, less responsible driver on the road trying to get somewhere too quickly by running a red light, distracted by texting and driving, or failing to signal when changing lanes because the child in the back seat is misbehaving. Whatever the reason, accidents where you’re not the one at fault do happen.

When you get into a motor-vehicle accident, you file a claim with the driver-at-fault’s insurance company. Their insurer repairs your vehicle, or if it’s totaled in the accident, they will cover the cost of the car, your medical expenses, and any financial losses you incur because of the accident for which you were not at-fault.

However, there are times when things don't go as smoothly and you must retain legal counsel! Sometimes the driver at fault is underinsured and in the worst-case scenario, the driver takes off before law enforcement can make the exchange of information. This leaves you with a totaled vehicle and very little recourse. It's important to seek proper legal advice from our Florida Car Accident Lawyers if you find yourself in this situation.

Pedestrian Hit and Run Accidents Can Be Catastrophic, Fatal: Part 1, TBI

By Shaked Law Firm | August 27, 2018

When a pedestrian is hit by a car or truck, the injuries that can result are catastrophic. Unlike motor vehicle accidents in which another car is hit, providing even the smallest amount of protection around the driver, when a pedestrian is hit by a vehicle there is nothing to protect them from sustaining serious and often fatal injuries. The rate at which these accidents occur is rising, especially in busy cities like Miami.
