Auto Collisions 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. In many instances, the victims are innocent motorists who were simply minding their own business when the crash takes place.
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.
