Miami Pedestrian Accidents
A car accident in Miami can turn your life upside down in a matter of seconds. According to statistics, more than half of all car accidents throughout Florida will result in injuries to one or more victims. Many of the injuries will be serious and will require long-term medical care and a long path to recovery. Some common injuries that occur in Florida car accidents include broken bones, head trauma, spinal cord injuries, and even death. The cause of each crash must be carefully investigated by authorities in order to determine who should be held responsible.
The fact is that most car accidents are caused by negligent drivers. This often results in injuries to motorists who are simply in the wrong place at the wrong time. While the risk of being involved in a crash can be reduced by taking certain precautions, not all accidents are avoidable. Some collisions happen so suddenly that drivers have no time to take any evasive actions.
