Car Accidents in Florida
According to statistics published by NHTSA, a reportable car accident in Florida takes place about once every 90 seconds. Each and every day we get behind the wheel of a vehicle to go about our daily tasks. Too often, we take our safety and security for granted and it is easy to forget that a life-changing car accident can take place at any time. There are thousands of negligent drivers on Florida’s roadways at any given time and all of us are vulnerable to being injured in a crash whenever we are operating or riding in a vehicle.
If you or a loved one have sustained injuries in a Florida car accident, it is important to be fully aware of your legal rights. While most people understand that the other driver can be held responsible for their actions, knowing the value of your claim is crucial. In many situations, accident victims attempt to handle their own cases with the insurance adjuster. This results in settlements that are too low and do not take into account the full value of the claim and the victim’s injuries. Having a knowledgeable attorney by your side is a crucial element of recovering the full value of your case.
