Traffic accidents are everywhere. You see them on the news. You pass them on the street. It seems there’s not a day that goes by where someone isn’t involved in a traffic accident. Injuries vary from a dented fender to loss of live. And while every accident is tragic, a bad situation is made worse when a driver leaves the scene of the accident. Not only is it illegal, but it can lead to an innocent victim having to tend to there own care, if they are able. This very incident occurred in West Palm Beach, Florida. A young man lost his life due to an irresponsible driver leaving the scene of the accident while the car was engulfed in flames.
Everyone who owns and operates a motor vehicle in Florida is financially responsible to pay for any damage or injuries caused by that car in any accident. Unfortunately a large number of automobile owners have neglected to obtain the required insurance and are unable to cover the damages or injuries that occur in an accident, leaving you to cope with the damages. This is why every insured motorist should carry “stacking” uninsured motorist coverage.
With so many types of insurance coverage available, you should seek the advice of a professional who understands the various policies. The attorneys at Wieland, Hilado & DeLattre are familiar with the different kinds of policies and will assist you in selecting one that will best suit your needs, preventing you from being over-insured or under-insured. And should an accident occur they are well skilled in helping you get the benefits you deserve.
