What are the Most Common Causes of Car Accidents in Florida?

The Florida Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles reported 401,867 total collisions throughout the state last year, resulting in 255,253 injuries, of which, over 14,000 were catastrophic, permanently changing our resident’s lives without notice.

When negligent drivers get behind the wheel of any vehicle, no matter its size, other motorists are going to get hurt.

Speeding and aggressive driving accounted for over 25,000 crashes throughout Florida last year, leaving nearly 4,000 people injured over 1,260 catastrophically, and nearly 400 dead.

Negligence is also a major factor in collisions when intoxicated drivers decide to get behind the wheel, instead of calling a friend, family member, taxi, or ordering an Uber or Lyft to get home safely.

Last year, there were nearly 5,000 alcohol-related crashes throughout Florida, injuring over 2,500 people, and killing nearly 800 more.

Other common causes of auto accidents in Florida include, but are not limited to:

  • Distracted driving
  • Failing to obey traffic signs and signals
  • Fatigued driving
  • Vehicle defects
  • Dangerous road conditions

If you or someone you love has been hurt in a traffic collision, contact our car accident attorneys in Florida to pursue the negligent driver who caused your injuries for the maximum recovery available for your unique needs.

What Type of Compensation Can I Pursue After a Florida Car Accident with Injuries?

At MLG Injury, our auto accident attorneys in Florida assess each of our client’s unique cases based on the circumstances that caused their collision.

We review the injured party’s initial statement during a free consultation and investigate the evidence, medical requirements, and complete financial recovery needs to customize a legal strategy to pursue the outcome they deserve from the negligent driver’s insurance company.

While that figure is different for each case we pursue, the common financial recovery requirements may include:

  • Complete medical expenses, including rehabilitation and therapy, prescriptions, and medical devices
  • Long-term and/or at-home medical care for catastrophic injuries
  • Current and future lost wages, including diminished working capacity – when applicable
  • Partial or full disability
  • Property damage costs

Our Florida car accident lawyers will thoroughly review your claim to ensure no detail is left to chance in our pursuit of damages, so you are not left paying these exorbitant costs out of pocket.

What Happens if I Lose a Loved One in a Car Accident?

Unfortunately, not everyone survives their accident injuries after a collision on our Florida roadways. With nearly 3,200 people killed during traffic crashes in our state last year, families are left reeling from the physical, emotional, and financial fallout.

If your loved one was killed by a negligent driver in Florida, you may be eligible to pursue a wrongful death claim to recover the financial losses your family will experience because of your loss.

We know no amount of money will bring your loved one back, but it may help you pay the expenses associated with their death and take the time you need to fully grieve.

Wrongful death recovery costs may include:

  • Medical costs incurred before his or her death
  • Funeral and burial expenses
  • Lost wages and benefits previously supplied by the deceased
  • Value of support and services
  • Loss of companionship, guidance, and protection

The family member who is eligible to pursue a wrongful death claim in Florida is often the beneficiary named in the deceased’s will. If one does not exist, the court will appoint a representative, which may include the deceased’s spouse, children, or parents.

Family members or estate representatives have two years to file a wrongful death claim in the state of Florida. If you have lost a loved one, time is of the essence to begin investigating their loss, collecting evidence, and pursuing the negligent party who is liable for their death.
