Car Wrecks in Florida
Serious and deadly car accidents occur each day across Florida. It is easy to be lulled into a false sense of security when we get into a vehicle. Most people take for granted the risks that are associated with operating a motor vehicle on a daily basis. Unfortunately, these risks are always present. According to some recent statistics, there were more than 3,000 people killed in Florida car accidents in 2019. In addition, nearly 250,000 injuries were also reported. Many of the injuries were serious in nature, requiring extensive medical treatment and a long-term recovery period.

This is especially true if your loved one was killed in a crash that was not their fault.

Under Florida law, the victim’s next-of-kin may be entitled to bring a wrongful death claim to recover for funeral and medical bills, lost wages, loss of companionship, and potentially more.
