Car Accidents in Florida
According to statistics published by NHTSA, a Florida car accident occurs about once every 92 seconds. This means that all motorists on our roadways must remain vigilant at all times as a crash could occur at any moment. Speeding, reckless driving, impairment, distraction, and more can all lead to a serious accident that can leave victims suffering from catastrophic injuries. Unfortunately, these incidents take place multiple times per day in Florida.
If you have been injured in an accident, you should seek to protect your legal rights as soon as possible. Many victims of car accidents in Florida mistakenly believe that the insurance company has their best interest in mind and is working for them when it comes to receiving a settlement of their claim. The insurance company, however, is only concerned with settling the case as quickly and cheaply as they can. It is important to make sure you are represented by experienced counsel who can help you get the compensation that you deserve.
At Boone and Davis, we make sure that our clients are able to recover the maximum amount according to law. With over 35 years of experience helping accident victims, we know how to evaluate your claim so that you are not left with an inadequate settlement that does not fully compensate you for your pain and suffering, lost wages, and medical bills. We will stand up for you when your back is against the wall. Our South Florida car accident attorneys are here to help during your time of greatest need.
We offer free consultations and case evaluations to all potential clients.
