Florida Car Crashes
Florida is one of the most dangerous states in the nation for motorists. According to statistics, there were more than 400,000 car accidents reported statewide in 2019. Of this number, approximately 250,000 motorists suffered injuries, many of them serious in nature. A Florida car accident can be a life-altering event for both victims and their families as the injured person struggles to regain the life that they enjoyed prior to the accident.
If you have been affected by a crash in South Florida, you should speak with an experienced Miami car accident lawyer right away. You may have the right to obtain compensation for your injuries, including payment for your pain and suffering, lost wages, medical bills, and possibly more. Your attorney can advise you on the value of your case and can negotiate with the insurance company on your behalf to receive a favorable settlement.
