We all have to have insurance before we can legally driver our vehicles on the roadway. That is because there is always the possibility that we will get into an accident. We do not think about it often. Unfortunately, when another driver’s negligence causes us harm, we must turn to insurance companies to hold up their end of the bargain.
What happens if they do not offer enough to cover the crash-related expenses.

When we look at the Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles, we can see the scope of the car crash problem in Florida. During the latest reporting year, there were more than 400,000 total crashes. Out of those, over 3,000 people lost their lives and over 250,000 people were injured.
If we look a little closer at those numbers, we can see that there were more than 20,000 incapacitating injuries, those that are so severe that a person’s life is completely altered. These injuries can include:
The cost of treating these injuries can become tremendous and send victims and their families into financial ruin. This is especially true if the person injured is the main income earner for the family.
Most vehicle crashes in the state involve regular passenger vehicles, but there are a few other types of crashes we want to tell you about.
Accidents involving large trucks (eighteen-wheelers, delivery trucks, construction trucks, etc.) can be devastating. These vehicles often weigh tens of thousands of pounds. When they strike a smaller passenger vehicle, there are likely to be major injuries.
For the latest reporting year, there were nearly 10,000 motorcycle crashes in Florida. This is a popular state for motorcyclists, but they have a higher risk of injury in a crash. In fact, nearly all of those crashes resulted in an injury (7,725) or a fatality (515).
Most vehicle crashes are caused by driver negligence. Sometimes, the negligence is extreme (impaired, distracted, aggressive driving). If you have been injured in a crash that was caused by another person, please do not speak with the insurance companies before you seek legal assistance. Please know that insurance companies will record your statements and use them against you in order to pay a lower settlement. Vladimir Tsirkin & Associates will make sure you are treated fairly.
