Florida Car Accidents
A car accident in Florida can be a devastating event for both the victim as well as their families. A reportable crash in our state takes place about once every 92 seconds. This means that all motorists are at risk of being injured in an accident at any point in time. Motorists should always use caution in order to lower their risk of being involved in a collision. This includes following all safety laws and taking precautions to avoid becoming an accident victim. Unfortunately, however, not all Florida car accidents are avoidable. Due to the prevalence of negligent drivers on our roadways, sometimes motorists are simply in the wrong place at the wrong time.
If you have experienced an injury crash in the Sunshine State, you may wonder what legal rights you have at this time. Fortunately, innocent accident victims do have a right to recover compensation from the negligent driver and possibly from their own insurance company in the event of a crash that was not their fault. This includes payment for pain and suffering, lost wages, payment of medical and prescription bills, and more.
