Board Certified Civil Trial Attorney Alan Sackrin Knows How To Help

Helping Local and Out of State Clients Since 1982.

Car crashes, auto accidents, traffic collisions, wrecks: here in Fort Lauderdale, these are everyday events. In fact, according to the Florida Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles, every single day in Florida there are approximately 645 motor vehicle accidents, or 27 car crashes every hour.

Each day innocent people who are drivers, passengers, and pedestrians on their way to work, to school, or running errands, going shopping, or otherwise going about their daily lives, are injured in car crashes on Fort Lauderdale roadways like I-95 and 595, Broward Boulevard, Sunrise Boulevard, 441 and US-1 due to the negligence or recklessness of others. Or because of defective products like tires, airbags, or overall design as well as road hazards.

The harsh truth is that most everyone in Fort Lauderdale has either been involved in an auto accident or car crash or knows someone who has been hurt or seriously injured in a car wreck. Sadly, some Florida families have dealt with the tragedy of wrongful deaths of their loved ones as the result of a traffic accident on one of Fort Lauderdale’s streets.

Why Alan Sackrin?

What sets Alan apart from other car accident lawyers are his extensive trial skills and experience and his understanding of accident reconstruction analysis, crash analysis, road condition analysis, speed analysis, analysis of driver reaction times and perception and other elements that are essential to prove driver negligence. Additionally, he provides unfettered access to himself and his veteran support staff to help answer your questions and begin the process of finding out what went wrong and he strives to add value to his clients.  He adds value to his clients because he will go to trial when the insurance company doesn’t make a settlement offer that he believes is fair.  Alan won’t send his client to a different lawyer to file a lawsuit, he’s the lawyer that other lawyers send their cases to when they are unable to obtain a reasonable settlement offer.

Florida Law Protects Victims of Car Crashes and Auto Accidents: Financial Compensation

If you have been seriously injured in a car crash involving a negligent or drunk driver here in Fort Lauderdale, Florida laws have been passed so you can recover money damages, including:

  • reimbursement for your medical expenses;
  • covering future medical expenses (including physical therapy);
  • pain and suffering
  • lost wages
  • mental anguish; and
  • physical impairment and/or disfigurement.

Even if your bodily injuries are relatively minor, damages may still be available to you ‑‑ including recouping all your property losses (damage to your vehicle and its contents).

Fort Lauderdale Auto Accident Victims Must Deal With Insurance Adjusters

Recovering from a car crash is always a difficult time for you and your family. If you have an experienced Florida car accident lawyer working for you, not only can this help relieve the stress of recovering and moving forward from a serious accident but it can be extremely beneficial to your claims when you are negotiating with the insurance company’s professional insurance adjusters. In Florida, every vehicle with a valid Florida license plate must carry insurance: Florida’s minimum coverage is $10,000 personal injury protection (PIP) and $10,000 property damage liability (PDL).

Fort Lauderdale accidents and injuries include all types of crashes and accident causes, including:

  • Head on collisions
  • Multi-car pile ups
  • single vehicle wrecks (e.g., cars or vans or SUVs plowing into poles, or columns, or trees)
  • SUV rollovers
  • Passenger van rollovers
  • Side collisions
  • Car accidents
  • Drunk driving accidents / DUI accidents
  • Accidents between cars and commercial trucks (semis, big rigs) or buses
  • Accidents between cars and motorcycles or bicycles
  • Accidents between cars and pedestrians

Car Accidents In Fort Lauderdale Happen For Many Different Reasons but Florida Insurance Companies Always Have One Goal in Mind

Sometimes the driver of the other vehicle is at fault. A truck driver falls asleep at the wheel, a drunk driver cannot operate his car, and maybe someone just makes a mistake. At times there’s more to the story: the passenger van rolls over because of a design error; a tire on the other vehicle blows because it was flawed; cargo from a semi or delivery truck falls into highway traffic.

Car accident cases here in Fort Lauderdale can be complicated for many reasons. In every case, for every claim, however insurance companies will be looking to minimize the amount of money that they will have to pay out. Adjusters will want to minimize the monetary exposure of their policyholders; they will not be seeking justice for the victims.

Having an Experienced Florida Auto Accident Attorney on Your Side Is a Great Advantage

As we all know, a car accident can be a traumatic event and sometimes the physical toll they cause is not immediately transparent. Often, a car wreck is a life-altering event for you and your family and friends.

Car accidents can lead to difficult mental and physical consequences. You may not be able to work, or walk, or lead a normal life for a very long time. This new reality can be overwhelming and stressful for you and your spouse, your parents, and your kids. Having an experienced Florida accident and injury attorney to help with your legal fight can make the difference in your recovery from this event.
