Florida Reckless Driving Accidents
While behind the wheel of a vehicle, drivers can engage in reckless driving in a variety of ways. Drivers in Florida are well-known for being distracted and speeding on the road. According to national statistics, reckless drivers cause three out of ten accidents, and distracted driving causes nearly one-third of all fatal car accidents in the United States. At least 13,000 people are killed in car accidents each year as a result of distracted driving. Injured parties can seek proper compensation with the help of an experienced Largo car accident lawyer.
According to official government data, the number of people killed or injured in car accidents is rising, and a large number of Floridians are involved in serious car accidents each year. Even if you are able to return to work, it may be difficult to earn the same amount of money as before the accident. This can occur due to your injuries limiting your mobility, as well as the costs of your recovery and compensating for lost work time.
A personal injury attorney can help you seek compensation after being involved in an accident caused by someone else’s negligence. If you or a loved one has been killed in a car accident, a lawyer can help you fight the big insurance companies.
