More than three million people are injured and nearly 50,000 killed in the United States every year in car accidents. If you drive or ride in a car, there is a near statistical certainty that you will be involved in a car accident at some time in your life. Car accidents can be devastating - sometimes deadly. If you have been involved in a car accident, hopefully you've walked away free from harm. But even in the most minor of Florida car accidents, some degree of injury such as whiplash or minor cuts and bruises can occur. All too often though, head, neck and back injuries as well as injury to internal organs and limbs happen. You may not even notice until you get to your destination because an “adrenaline rush” effect can happen immediately after a car accident which may mask your injuries. Yet unless you get immediate assistance to evaluate even hidden injuries, you are at risk of compromising your ability to make future claims. DeLoach, Hofstra & Cavonis will guide you through making the right legal decisions at this traumatic time.
Most Serious Car Accident Injuries Were Preventable
Alcohol is a contributing factor in about 40% of fatal traffic accidents. Drugs - both illegal and prescription - account for some others. Improper use of seatbelts contributes to more than 60% of fatalities. Distractions, such as cell phones, are an increasing cause of car accidents and resulting injuries. If you have been the victim of others’ poor driving decisions, aggressive legal representation by our attorneys will help you get justice.
