Florida Car Crashes
A fatal car accident in Florida is estimated to take place approximately once every three hours. This averages out to nearly 9 people who lose their lives per day due to fatal Florida car accidents. Each year, on average, a total of approximately 3,000 individuals are killed due to auto collisions in Florida. Sadly, most of these incidences are caused by driver negligence.
The most prevalent cause for car accidents to occur in the Sunshine State, currently, is distracted driving, which is another form of negligent driving. The specific action that people most often choose to carry out while driving that puts them in the ‘distracted driving’ category is texting. Texting and driving accounts for nearly one-fourth of all of the car accidents that take place in Florida.
Seeking the assistance of a skilled and knowledgeable Florida accident attorney after involvement in a serious accident is your best bet in receiving full and fair financial compensation for your injuries and losses. Attempting to negotiate a just compensation amount from the insurance company on your own without the skilled assistance of a Florida personal injury lawyer could put you in an undesirable position. Insurance companies often attempt to totally avoid paying compensation or coerce accident victims into settling for a meager amount.
If you have lost a loved one in a negligently caused car accident, you may be legally entitled to financial compensation depending on the circumstances of your crash. Allow a Florida wrongful death lawyer to inform you of your existing legal rights, and to help you exercise them in court if need be.
