Florida Reckless Driving Crashes
According to statistics, almost 90% of automobile accidents are caused by human error, especially reckless driving. When it comes to serious automobile accidents, reckless driving is responsible for 33% of all deaths. Each year, about 13,000 accidents occur. Thirty percent of recorded automobile accidents are attributed to the speed of reckless driving.
If you were hurt in a car accident in Florida caused by someone else’s carelessness, you are entitled to compensation for your pain and suffering. Your injuries’ treatment fees might be too pricey. Medical bills in the thousands, tens of thousands, or even hundreds of thousands of dollars might be on the table. Insurance firms lose money when they reimburse accident victims for their damages. That is why they are experts at concealing the actual value of your injuries.
Injured plaintiffs should contact a Clearwater personal injury attorney as soon as possible if they suspect a negligent motorist is to blame for their injuries. Only an experienced personal injury lawyer can walk you through the personal injury process and ensure that your case is handled properly. We understand how difficult it is to do it alone.
