Weinstein & Scharf, P.A. Files 20th Loss of Use Lawsuit
FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla., Sept. 6, 2012 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- Weinstein & Scharf, P.A., a Fort Lauderdale personal injury firm, has recently filed their 20th loss of use lawsuit on behalf of a negligently injured client.
Weinstein & Scharf, P.A. is a personal injury law firm that has dedicated their practice to recovering just compensation for wrongfully injured clients in Fort Lauderdale. Although they are well-equipped to assist victims in a wide variety of accident and liability claims, they have found that a majority of the cases that they take on involve an injury resulting from a negligently caused motor vehicle accident. According to the Florida Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles (DHSMV), more than 235,000 auto collisions took place throughout the state in 2009—almost half of them involving a drunken driver and more than 2,000 of them resulting in a fatality. For this reason, it is no surprise that thousands of accident victims seek compensation from the responsible party each year in Florida.
What many of these injured victims do not realize, however, is that they not only have the right to pursue damages for the medical expenses that they have incurred and the income that they have lost because of an injury, but they can pursue "loss of use" damages, as well. Loss of use in relation to a car accident lawsuit refers to a plaintiff's inability to use a vehicle that was damaged in a collision during the time that it is being repaired. Because the use of a car is a vital part of many people's day-to-day lives— especially when an injured individual needs to make it to a medical appointment and/or get back and forth from work—it is their right to seek compensation for this loss that they have been forced to endure. Fortunately for the clients of Weinstein & Scharf, P.A., the attorneys at the firm are not afraid to pursue this complex legal matter. In fact, the firm has just filed their 20th lawsuit regarding loss of use.
By taking the time to pursue this issue on behalf of the wrongfully injured victims that enlist the help of the firm, the lawyers at Weinstein & Scharf, P.A. have been successful in recovering settlement amounts that allow their clients to invest in the use of a rental car. For example, in a case that Attorney Lawrence Weinstein settled with an insurance company at the end of last month, he was able to recover $70,000 for a client on the grounds of diminished value and loss of use. For this reason, the firm believes that they are gaining traction on this issue, and will continue to pursue the maximum amount of compensation for each client that walks through their door. As Lawrence Weinstein explains, "insurance companies are coming around and starting to resolve these cases, acknowledging the validity of the claim and how we calculate loss of use damages."
Weinstein & Scharf, P.A. is a firm that fully understands the needs of their wrongfully injured clients. Whether they have been involved in a slip and fall accident or they have been injured by a defective product, the knowledgeable attorneys at the firm are well-equipped to recover the compensation that their clients deserve. With more than 85 years of combined legal experience, the firm has been successful in obtaining a successful resolution for countless accident victims—both in and out of the courtroom.
