Causes of Vehicle Accidents
Our firm represents clients in all types of vehicle and auto accidents, including car accidents, motorcycle accidents, truck accidents, collisions involving bicycles, boating accidents, and more. Often, serious or catastrophic injuries are caused by devastating collisions that result from driver error, negligence, distraction, impairment, or poor road conditions.
Some of the most common causes of road accidents include:
- Driving while impaired by alcohol or drugs
- Failure to observe traffic laws
- Texting or using a cell phone
- Falling asleep behind the wheel
- Road defects
- Poor weather conditions
Liability issues vary, depending on the type of the accident and the cause or contributing factors. Florida uses a comparative negligence standard that reduces recovery based on the percentage of your negligence in the accident. For example, if you are found to be 60% negligent, your total recovery will be reduced by that percentage. However, you will still receive 40% of the damages in your case.
Securing Compensation For Serious Injuries
Regardless of the type of vehicle, there are several relatively common injuries suffered in auto accidents. These include whiplash, neck injuries, knee injuries, leg injuries, back injuries, spinal cord injuries, concussions, and head injuries. Let a Bay Harbor Islands car accident attorney from our firm help you obtain appropriate compensation for your medical bills, lost wages, pain and suffering, and property damage.
