If a careless driver caused you to get hurt in a Cutler Bay car accident, you may have a case.
Driver Gets $100,000 for Truck Crash near Cutler Bay
Check out my $100,000 settlement after a truck hit a driver of a car near Cutler Bay, Florida. This accident was also near Goulds and Princeton.
I represented the driver of the car. He claimed that the crash caused a herniated disc in his neck.
Zurich Insurance Company insured the truck driver. The major property damage to my client’s car helped increase the settlement value of this case.
My client (seen below) was very happy with this settlement.
You can find his video testimonial on our client reviews page.

He had a clavicle (collarbone) fracture.
Cutler Bay Drivers are Less Likely to Have Insurance
If a driver caused your car crash in Cutler Bay, he or she is less likely to have insurance than if the crash happened in many other Dade County cities.
For example, you have a much higher chance of a careless driver having insurance if your accident happens in Kendall, Coral Gables, South Miami, Doral or Miami Beach.
This is because drivers in those cities tend to have more money. Thus, they are much more likely to carry bodily injury (“BI”) insurance.
All this being said, you can still get lucky like my client that I talked about above. The 18 wheeler truck driver had a $1 Million dollars of Bi liability insurance in that case.
In terms of the likelihood of there being enough insurance to pay for the fair value of your case, Cutler Bay accidents are similar to car accidents in Homestead, Hialeah and Miami Gardens.
Juries tend to be more generous in Cutler Bay Crash Cases
If you make an injury claim against an at fault driver who caused your accident in Cutler Bay, your case will likely be decided by a Dade County jury.
The majority of car accident cases settle before trial. However, insurance companies factor in the county where the crash happened when making an offer. Miami-Dade County tends to be a favorable county for people who are hurt in car wrecks.
Thus, adjusters may make a higher offer based on this. That being said, if you have small injuries from a Cutler Bay crash, expect a small settlement.
Cutler Bay cases are worth less if you don’t have car insurance
Personal Injury Protection (PIP) normally covers a lot of an injured car accident victim’s medical bills.
However, if you owned a car at the time of your crash in Cutler Bay, and you didn’t insure it, you won’t qualify for PIP. In addition, you won’t not be able to recover your PIP deductible and 80% of your medical bills up to $10,000.
This is true even if the careless driver was 100% fault. This is because Miami-Dade County car accident law punishes uninsured injured car accident victims.
In many of these situations, the tortfeasor driver may get up to a $10,000 credit against your damages. Some other Florida counties don’t have this penalty.
However, this penalty applies to Cutler Bay accidents.
