Car Accidents in Miami
Miami is the most populous city in Florida and is also one of the largest in the country. With this comes higher traffic volume and a greater likelihood of injury accidents and fatalities. According to statistics, there were 64,495 reported car accidents in Miami in 2019. A total of 335 people lost their lives in these crashes. Between 2018 and 2018, the number of fatalities due to Miami car accidents increased by 42 people, making 2019 one of the deadliest years on record for Miami drivers.
These numbers illustrate some of the dangers that occur as a result of driving in the Miami area. Negligent drivers are present throughout the city. Speeding, reckless driving, impaired driving, and distracted driving are some of the most common causes of serious car accidents. If you have been involved in a crash with a negligent driver, you may have valuable legal rights and should contact an experienced attorney as soon as possible.
Under Florida law, drivers and passengers who have suffered injuries may be able to file a claim against the other driver. If your family member was killed in the crash, you could file a claim on behalf of your loved one for their wrongful death. These cases can be very complicated and should only be handled by an experienced Miami car accident attorney.
