Florida Auto Accidents

The network of highways, city streets, and country roads that stretches all over the United States is four million miles long, and an estimated 250 million vehicles travel trillions of miles on these highways, streets, and roads every year. An Experienced Florida Personal Injury Lawyer in this field will advance the costs and expenses necessary to successfully litigate these cases.

This staggering amount of travel leads to an equally staggering number of car accidents – over six million annually! People who are injured or killed in auto accidents similarly number in the millions. Given these statistics, chances are you will be involved in at least one auto accident during your lifetime – an accident that may be a highly traumatic, and even life-altering, experience. A knowledgeable Florida Injury Attorney in the Auto Accident Claims subject will assist you to successfully litigate these cases.

Causes of Auto Accidents

Car accidents have many causes, including drunk driving, aggressive driving, excess speeding, driver drowsiness, poor road conditions, vehicle failure, stuck accelerators and negligence. Negligent driving can be a driver not paying attention due to countless different distractions including driver texting, cell phone misuse, eating, changing the radio station, reading, or even putting on cosmetics. Many times accidents are caused by a combination of these. A skilled Florida Attorney in the Auto Accident Claims area will fight for you.

Drunk driving is a serious problem and contributes to many fatal and injury accidents everyday. In 2004, 39 percent of fatal crashes in the United States were alcohol related. The legal limit for blood alcohol concentration in the United States for drivers 21 years of age or older is .08 g/dL (grams per deciliter) or higher.  Additionally, research by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety suggests that the risk of being killed in a solo-vehicle crash for drivers with a BAC between .05 and .09 is 11 times higher than drivers without any alcohol in their system. If you have been injured as a result of a drunk driver getting behind the wheel, we can help you obtain justice and compensation for your injuries. An Experienced Florida Lawyer in this topic will fight and fight and fight for you.

Fault for Auto Accidents

Usually auto accidents occur because a driver has been negligent, meaning that he or she has operated a vehicle in a careless and unsafe manner. A driver must exercise “reasonable care” while behind the wheel and may be deemed negligent for violating speed limits, ignoring traffic signals, or being preoccupied by distracting activities such as eating or talking on a cell phone while driving. In addition to the drivers, other who may have liability for auto accidents include:

  • All owners of a vehicle may be liable for the negligent conduct of the driver. These owners may range from the parents of drivers under the age of 18 to business entities providing their employees with vehicles as a job perk.
  • Employers may bear responsibility for auto accidents caused by their employees while on the job. In certain corporate contexts, parent companies could be held responsible for the conduct of their wholly-owned subsidiaries.
  • Government units and agencies may share in the fault for the auto accident. Cities, counties, and even the state may have failed to design, construct, and maintain safe roads or implement proper traffic controls (including light signals, stop signs, and speed limit postings).
  • Auto manufacturers may face separate liability for negligent design or defective manufacture of a vehicle (or a component part) for injuries arising from a car accident. Injuries may be caused, for example, from seatbelt malfunctions, airbag failures, or tire defects. Design and manufacturing problems are myriad and include structural instabilities leading to vehicle rollovers; gas tank explosions and fuel-fed fires; and avoidable roof crush.
  • Uninsured motorist or underinsured motorist coverage may exist under your and/or your passengers’ policies, which can provide additional sources of compensation in a car accident under certain circumstances.
  • An Experienced Florida Attorney in this field will advance the costs and expenses necessary to successfully litigate these cases.If you have been injured in an auto accident, you may be entitled to recover compensation for your:
  • Medical bills for emergency room care, hospitalization, doctor visits, physical therapy, or chiropractic treatment, not to mention diagnostic tests like x-rays and MRIs. Recovery of medical bills is not limited to past care.
  • Pain and suffering associated with injuries sustained in the auto accident. The nature, severity, and duration of your injuries are important factors in computing damages for pain and suffering
  • Loss of wages due to missed work. If you are unable to work because of the injuries caused by the car accident, you are entitled to recover the wages you would have earned during the time you missed. You are entitled to this recovery even if you used sick leave or vacation time to cover your absence
  • Reduced earning capacity because of ongoing disability. If you suffered long-term injuries in the auto accident, your ability to earn income may be impacted indefinitely. If your injuries are permanent, you may be unable to return to your particular job or may never be able to work again.
