Car Accidents

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.

By Shaked Law Firm | April 27, 2018

The Graves Amendment is the less talked about law that car renters often overlook, even though they shouldn’t. Before the year 2005, if you were injured by a driver in a rental car, you would more than likely settle your claim utilizing the driver of the rental car’s own car insurance policy.

Being Rear Ended: A Look into Who’s at Fault and Why

By Shaked Law Firm | March 21, 2018

Let’s face it: car accidents happen. From head-on collisions with drunk drivers, being sideswiped on the highway, hit-and-runs on a busy street, to minor fender benders in parking lots after a long day at work. No matter the type of accident you’re involved in or the severity, someone is at-fault. This is called liability, and as a safe driver, it’s important to know the laws surrounding it while out on the road.
