Car accidents are one of the leading causes of personal injury claims. Every single day across Florida, there are about 650 auto accidents. Florida is currently the third-highest state in the nation for fatal car accidents with collisions accounting for nearly one-third of all accidental deaths in the state.
If you have been injured in a car accident in Florida caused by the negligence of another driver, you may have the right to compensation for your medical bills, lost wages, pain and suffering, and other damages. GMV Law Group, LLP aggressively represents car accident victims in pursuing fair compensation.
GMV Law Group, LLP represents victims and loved ones in all types of auto accident cases. The following are some of the most common types of car accidents we assist with.
DUI refers to drunk or drugged driving. Every year, about 3,000 people in Florida are killed in accidents involving a drunk driver, exceeding the national average. About 1 in 3 traffic fatalities involve a drunk driver and drinking. If you have been injured in an accident caused by a drunk driver, you may have a claim against not only the driver but potentially third parties like a bar that served an already intoxicated person alcohol.
Almost 10% of all fatal car accidents involve distracted driving. In Florida, there are more than 5 car accidents every hour caused by distracted drivers which makes it the second-worst state for distracted driving. When someone is distracted by a conversation, cell phone use, radio, or eating while driving, they put everyone on the road at risk.
Head-on crashes may not be common, but they’re one of the most deadly types of car accidents. If you have been injured in a head-on collision, an auto accident injury lawyer in Florida can help you investigate your accident, build your claim, and fight for the compensation you deserve from the at-fault driver.
When someone drives above the speed limit or exceeds the safe speed for road conditions, the resulting collision is even more deadly. Speed is a factor in 1 out of every 3 traffic deaths. Speeding is a type of aggressive driving that can leave accident victims with life-changing injuries like spinal cord and traumatic brain injuries. If you have been injured in a high-speed crash by a reckless driver, contact GMV Law Group, LLP for experienced legal representation to fight for the compensation you deserve.
Someone behaves recklessly when they know about and continue behavior that increases the risk of harm to someone else. Reckless driving can include everything from drunk driving and speeding to tailgating, road rage, erratic lane changes, and failing to stop at traffic lights. When someone drives recklessly and causes an accident that leaves you with serious injuries, you have the right to file a claim for fair compensation for all of your damages.
