Injury Accidents in Miami-Dade
As indicated by vehicle collision statistics, roughly 400,000 traffic accidents played out on Florida’s roadways in 2019, causing injuries to approximately 250,000 people. These numbers are indicative of just how commonplace accidents are and just how treacherous Florida driving can be. Most accident victims received their injuries in car crashes for which they were not liable, an upsetting fact that is suggestive of the number of irresponsible drivers with whom we share the road.
If you have been involved in a car accident in Florida and suffered injuries, you could have valuable legal rights. The law is written such that injured crash victims can recover from the other driver if they were not at fault for the accident. The extent of your recovery will depend on many factors, including your age, the severity of your injuries, the need for costly present and future medical treatment, whether you lost wages as a result of the accident, and the degree to which you experienced debilitating pain and suffering due to the crash. All of these factors are evaluated when determining a fair outcome and resolution to your case.
