Car Accidents in Florida
A reportable car accident in Florida happens about once every 90 seconds. While no one ever expects to be involved in a crash, these accidents take place on a daily basis at all times of the day. Due to the presence of negligent drivers on our roadways, no motorist is ever truly immune from being involved in a crash. A Florida car accident can cause devastating consequences, including broken bones, head injuries, head and neck trauma, and a very long period of recovery. Crash victims may feel anxious and overwhelmed in the aftermath of the accident as they wonder if they will be able to return to the life that they once enjoyed.
Fortunately, there is help available. Under Florida law, injured crash victims can be entitled to a recovery if the crash was not their fault. This means reimbursement for a variety of damages associated with the collision, including lost wages, pain and suffering, medical bills and potentially more. It is important to make sure you receive the full amount of compensation to which you are entitled. Victims often settle quickly with the insurance company and for far less than what they deserve. Only an experienced Florida car accident attorney can properly value your claim and help you receive the amount you need to get back on your feet.
