Fort Lauderdale Car Accident Attorney
What are the common causes of car accidents in the U.S.?
Florida has one of the highest traffic rates out of all 50 states and, as a result, thousands of individuals are injured or killed in car accidents every year. The U.S. Census statistics show that in 2009 there were 10.8 million car accidents just that year, 35,900 of which resulted in fatalities. These accidents can range from small "fender benders" to high-speed and fatal head-on collisions; yet the causes are often the same. At Rosenberg & Rosenberg, P.A., we are committed to helping those in our community after they have been wrongfully injured in a motor vehicle collision. We also represent family members who have lost their loved one by filing a
wrongful death lawsuit. Please do not hesitate to contact a Fort Lauderdale car accident lawyer you can trust at our office today. We offer everyone a
free consultation to discuss the details of your case.
Common causes of collisions include:
- Driver distractions (music device, stereo, food, GPS, etc.)
- Texting and driving
- Fatigued drivers
- Reckless driving/Speeding
- Drunk driving accidents
- Poor weather conditions
- Road hazards/malfunctioning traffic lights
- Failure to follow traffic laws
- Auto product defects
Driver distraction has become an increasing cause of collisions, especially with the rise in texting while driving and talking on hand-held cell phones behind the wheel. Believe it or not, 18% of all car accident fatalities are caused by distracted drivers on the road, usually due to their electronic hand held devices. While cell phones are a great means of communication, when a driver used this behind the wheel they are taking their cognitive, manual and visual attention off of the road, therefore greatly increasing the likelihood of an accident. If you or a loved one were hit by a distracted, a reckless, or a drunk driver, you have every right to file a claim and receive fair compensation from the liable party and from the insurance companies.
Our firm is prepared to do just that for you;
give us a call at (888) 499-6206.
How do I receive compensation after an accident?
In order to recover your damages for a crash, you must be able to establish the liability of the other party or parties involved. With the experienced assistance of a Fort Lauderdale personal injury lawyer, you can gather any helpful pictures, witness statements, medical evaluations, and other documentation that proves your innocence and the negligence of any other parties. This proves to the insurance companies or to a judge that you deserve to be compensated for any physical, financial, and emotional damages that you've suffered as a result of your car accident.
How can I possibly afford a lawyer?
After a car accident, the victim is going to be left with a number of associated costs including property damages, medical bills, lost wages and the like. Sadly, many people who are hit by another person are fearful of hiring an attorney for legal help because they believe it is out of their price range. Honest victims who have been wrongfully harmed because of a negligent driver are then left to fight their own battles and receive little or no compensation. At Rosenberg & Rosenberg, P.A. we understand that finances can be tight, especially in the wake of an accident. It is for this reason that we promise each of our clients that we will not charge them a dime until we win their case. As there are many associated fees leading up to the settlement or ruling, our firm will front these entirely, not requiring you to never touch your wallet. Our legal team is confident in our abilities to advocate on your behalf, which is why we only collect attorney fees is we can reach a recovery of some sort on your behalf. In the unfortunate circumstance of the ruling not being in our clients favor, we choose to absorb the costs and you can walk away. "If you recover, then we recover." We stand by this promise, and we will do whatever we can to help fight your case so that you can receive the compensation that you truly deserve for your pain and suffering.
