Auto Accidents in Florida
Being involved in a car accident in Florida can force victims to suffer painful injuries that may affect the rest of their lives. Victims may find themselves unable to return to work or enjoy activities they once loved. Motorists who sustain injuries in an accident will also most likely face a slew of medical bills which may leave them in a difficult financial way. There are over 400,000 Florida auto collisions per year, with more than 250,000 people sustaining injuries and over 3,000 who lost their lives.
Many car accidents are caused due to the actions of negligent motorists. Although a Florida car accident can be a stressful and life-changing event, it does not have to define your future. Negligent drivers are constantly placing other individuals at risk with their reckless behaviors, and have little regard for the safety of other drivers on the roadway. If you have been hurt in a crash with a negligent driver, you may have important legal rights under Florida law. For example, you could be entitled to receive payment for your injuries, including your pain and suffering, medical expenses, lost wages, and potentially more. It is important to receive the compensation you deserve so that you can get the treatment you need and get back on your feet faster.
