United Auto Insurance Company is based in Miami Gardens

Finding a doctor in a Miami Gardens car accident case
I once heard an attorney say that the injured person’s treating doctor is more important than an attorney for a car crash case. However you look at it, doctors are very important to your case.
If you’re hurt in a Miami Gardens car accident, you probably want compensation for your pain and suffering. In order to get even one penny for pain and suffering you will most likely need a doctor to say that you have a permanent injury.
Most often, an orthopedic doctor is the most credible doctor who can say that a car accident victim’s injury is permanent. So you need to find a good orthopedic doctor.
I wrote an article that has a map of orthopedic doctors that are in or near Miami Gardens that are patient advocates.
In other words, these doctors are more willing than most to cooperate with the car accident claim and/or lawsuit process.
Miami Gardens car accident cases may be worth more
All things equal, injury claims that arise from Miami Gardens car accidents may be worth more than cases that arise from crashes in some other parts of Florida.
This is because if you’re hurt in a car accident in Miami Gardens, your case will likely be decided by a Miami-Dade County jury. Dade county juries have a reputation for being more favorable to injured car wreck victims than jurors in some other Florida counties.
However, ultimately the facts of your case will drive the case value. Any lawyer will tell you that many factors affect the strength of car accident case.
Likely not enough insurance in a Miami Gardens car crash case
This means that many drivers in Miami Gardens will either have no bodily injury (“BI”) insurance or a limited amount.
For example, in my settlement that I described above, the at fault parties only had $35,000 in combined BI insurance. My client’s case was worth multiples of that amount.
If another driver’s carelessness caused your crash in Miami Gardens, don’t expect that they have a lot of BI insurance. In terms of the probability of the careless driver being insured, Miami Gardens accidents are similar to crashes in Homestead and Cutler Bay.
