Car Accidents in Miami
Florida is one of the most dangerous states in the nation for motorists. According to statistics, there were more than 400,000 reported accidents on our streets and highways last year, and more than 250,000 injuries that resulted from these crashes. These numbers show us just how common and, unfortunately, how serious a Florida car accident can truly be. Many of the injured victims were hurt because they were simply in the wrong place at the wrong time when a crash occurred. Due to the prevalence of negligent drivers on our roadways, it is not unusual for innocent victims to find themselves seriously injured when they come into contact with a negligent motorist.
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.
