  Car Accidents
The risk for being injured in a car accident continues to grow each year. In fact, the latest statistics show that in 2009, 2,563 people were fatally injured in car accident injuries. In Florida, car accidents have become an all too common sight. On the road, there are a lot of dangers you may not see coming. Uninsured, underinsured, and drunk drivers can create a hazard on the road and on your wallet if you are in an accident with one of these negligent drivers. If you, or your loved one, have been injured in a car accident then you need to know your legal options to decide whether or not you have a successful case.

A car accident can come in many forms. It may involve a personal car, commercial vehicle, SUV, or semi-tractor trailer. Additionally, a car accident can be caused by defects in vehicle design or products. It is important to document all of the circumstances of the accident to ensure your legal representation can handle your case in an effective manner.

The results of a car accident can be devastating for all parties involved. From physical injury to emotional damages, the effects can leave irreversible harm. Survivors may need emotional or physical therapy, rehabilitation, or surgical reconstruction. Some of the most common injuries caused by car accidents include neck and back injuries, broken or fractured bones, head and brain injuries, as well as paralysis or loss of limbs. As a result, victims could face missed time at work, financial loss, and distress. Insurance may only cover a small portion of damages, so you may need to seek other forms of compensation. If you have suffered injury in an automobile accident, you may be entitled to Personal Injury Protection of up to $10,000.00. This money helps to pay for medical expenses and replace lost income. Depending on your situation, you may also be entitled to other forms of compensation through your settlement or the other driver’s insurance company. In some cases, a trial may be necessary. Your first step is to discuss your case with a respected, dedicated attorney.

Being a victim in a car accident is a serious matter and the effects could be life changing. You need someone by your side to discuss what to do next. When faced with medical bills, lost time at work, pain and suffering, you want a competent, respected legal team at your side to help you get the compensation you deserve.
