Bradenton Car Accident Lawyer
Traffic collisions continue to be a major contributor to serious injuries and traumatic fatalities across the U.S. and Florida. Until all control is taken away from human drivers, aggressive maneuvers, distracted driving, and impatient behavior will cause thousands of avoidable deaths every year. And, make no mistake: most causes of car crashes are due to human error and are preventable. If you were injured in a car crash, there was most likely one or more negligent parties. You have a right to receive financial compensation from the negligent driver that caused your injuries. Our Bradenton car accident lawyers at the Pendas Law Firm have experience with all types of car collisions, and can help you reach a positive settlement or take your case to court and win. We serve clients in Orlando, Tampa, Fort Myers, Jacksonville, West Palm Beach, Fort Lauderdale, Miami, Broward County & Miami-Dade County.
Central Florida and U.S. See Rise in Traumatic Car Collisions
There were 374,342 Florida auto crashes in 2015, according to the Florida Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles. With auto accidents on the rise, and an ever growing population in central Florida, the need for an experienced and aggressive lawyer has never been greater. In 2015, there was a large increase in the number of injured victims of car crashes. In fact, there were 105,000 more injured traffic victims in 2015 than in 2014, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. Auto wrecks happen for a variety of reasons, including bad weather and other unavoidable scenarios such as tire blow outs and failed brakes. However, those types of crashes that were not caused by driver error are very rare. Most common are collisions that occur due to the following types of driver negligence:
- Driver’s inattention or distraction;
- Driver’s impatiens;
- Driver’s aggression;
- Fatigued driving;
- Drunk driving; and
- Driver’s inexperience.
Duty of Care and Liability
The implied duty of care that all drivers owe each other, as well as pedestrians and cyclists, requires that all road users behave in ways that are reasonably safe and predictable. When that duty is violated and the negligent party causes property damage and/or injuries to another, they will be held liable for financial compensation. Common types of damages that require compensation include medical bills, future medical bills, pain and suffering, permanent scarring and/or disfigurement, property damage to the vehicle, and lost wages. In order to receive compensation, you must pursue a personal injury lawsuit or reach a settlement out of court. This is generally provided by the negligent party’s insurance provider. And, as you may have guessed, getting large insurance companies to pay out resources that they would rather keep for their shareholders is an exhausting process that requires vast legal knowledge. Our knowledgeable Bradenton car accident lawyers are experienced negotiators and have resources to match any insurance carrier. We assist clients in recovering the very maximum compensation possible.
