Florida Auto Accidents
Florida is one of the most dangerous states in the country for motorists. Statistics indicate that there are approximately 400,000 car accidents in our state every year. These accidents can cause serious injuries ranging from head trauma, neck and spinal cord injuries, broken bones, paralysis, soft tissue injuries, and more. A car accident in Florida can be a truly life-changing event for both the victim as well as their family. The accident may leave victims unable to work to support themselves and their families and to do the things that they enjoyed prior to the accident.
As your medical bills begin to increase and your road to recovery seems long, it is normal to feel hopeless about your future. However, it is important to remember that there is help available. Under Florida law, motorists who have been hurt in a crash may have the right to pursue a personal injury claim against the driver that caused the crash. These claims can go forward when someone else was at fault for the accident. Victims can recover different types of compensation, including payment for medical bills, lost wages, and pain and suffering with the help of a Florida personal injury attorney.
