Injury Crashes in Florida
According to the most recent statistics, there are about 250,000 injuries reported as a result of car accidents in Florida each year. While pedestrians do not make up the majority of the injured victims, a pedestrian crash in Florida often results in serious and life-threatening complications. Pedestrians are extremely vulnerable to being seriously injured or killed when they are involved in a crash as they have no protection from the force and impact of a serious collision. Further, many pedestrian accidents take place at higher speeds and neither the pedestrian nor the driver have time to take evasive action prior to impact. The results of these crashes can be devastating.
If you or your family have been affected by an injury accident in Florida, you should seek the services of an experienced attorney as soon as possible. During this time, it is understandable that you are feeling overwhelmed and consumed by the accident and the aftermath. It is normal to experience anxiety and trauma following the crash but it is also important to make sure that your legal rights are protected. This can mean the difference in obtaining the compensation that you deserve and being able to move forward following the crash or being held financially responsible for someone else’s negligence.
