You know when the season is about to pick up steam. The spring breakers are here already and they signal the beginning of a tide that will stay in our area until late August. It is tourist season and we all know that means an uptick in all kinds of vehicle crashes.

Vladimir Tsirkin & Associates knows that there are plenty of negligent drivers all year-round here. If you or a loved one are injured due to the negligence of another person, we want to help you recover the compensation you deserve. When you need a Fort Lauderdale car accident attorney, call us today.

The Issues For Florida

Florida is an interesting place to be a driver. Not only do we have plenty of locals (many of whom are not pure locals) but we also have tourists by the thousands. It can make for an interesting and chaotic driving experience. When we look at the latest full year of reporting, we see that there was a total of 402,385 vehicle crashes reported. Out of those, there were:

  • 3,116 fatalities
  • 254,310 injuries

While most of the injuries from vehicle crashes are minor, for that same year there were over 20,000 incapacitating injuries. These include:

  • Spinal cord injuries (possible paralysis)
  • Traumatic brain injuries
  • Internal organ damage
  • Internal bleeding
  • Broken and dislocated bones
  • Severe lacerations or amputations

All of those injuries require immediate emergency medical care and often long periods of rehabilitation. This can become incredibly costly, especially when considering the added hidden costs of vehicle crash injuries. This can include:

  • Lost wages if a victim cannot work
  • Psychological and emotional distress
  • Home and vehicle accommodations
  • Long-term care if needed

In many cases, insurance companies do not take all of these expenses into account when making a settlement determination.

During spring break and over the summer, we will also see an uptick in alcohol-related crashes. For the year discussed above, there were over 5,000 alcohol confirmed crashes. These caused 374 fatalities and over 3,000 injuries.

We also know that distracted driving is a major concern, particularly with younger drivers. When a driver is focused on text messages or videos on a phone, they are not properly watching the roadway.

Regardless of how a person’s negligence causes a crash, they should be held responsible for any injuries they cause.
