Buckle Up: Even Without Snow Storms Florida Gets It's Share Of Winter Car Crashes

While the Northeast toughs it out through the hazardous driving conditions from a major winter storm, we Floridians are basking in the sun.

But drivers stay alert because the snowbirds are here and the extra traffic on the roadways can increase the danger.The difference for us is the conditions set by busier roads don't go away with the pass of a snow plow.

Our seasonal residents will be adding to our traffic woes for months. While weather generally cooperates with us during the winter months, the major increase in traffic on both the interstates and major roadways like Tamiami trail and Manatee Avenue can cause things to turn ugly.  Usually resulting in not only additional fender-benders but also an increase in serious or even fatal auto accidents.

New mobile gadgets can add to the issues with season drivers distracted by using their GPS, or iphones to get around town instead of watching the road. In 2013 new auto insurance rules take effect limiting the amount of personal injury protection coverage from $10,000 down to $2,500. The new laws will make the potential consequences of an accident even worse, just as our busy season is under way.

So when the snow storms bring us the snow birds, buckle up, check your mirrors twice before changing lanes and leave the iphone off.

If you have been injured in an auto accident don't let the insurance adjuster decide what your injuries and lost income are worth. Contact the experienced auto accident lawyers of Goldman Babboni & Walsh.


Client Testimonials

Attorney David Goldman has been exceptional in the process of helping me through the case. He has always been easy to reach, whether by phone or email, and has thorough knowledge and explains clearly in depth so you feel safe and confident in your lawyer

I used Michael Babboni and his paralegal, Nicole Moore for a legal matter. They went above and beyond my expectations. During the entire process there was constant communication with both Michael and Nicole. They were extremely organized and on top of my case, which I am very grateful for. Michael truly had my best interests at heart and he was very genuine. I plan on referring Michael to all family and friends and will continue to use him in the future.

I dealt most with Mr. Fernandez. I didn’t know a lot about this process. He took the time to speak with me individually, in person, to explain everything. It was very helpful to actually know and understand the process and what to expect. He closed my case quickly, which was nice that it was not prolonged! I appreciated his hard work and getting me what I felt I deserved after my car accident. I highly recommend him to anyone who needs an honest and reliable lawyer to assist you with your case!

I hired Mr. Walsh after an automobile accident this past March. He and his entire staff were extremely professional. They kept me informed every step of the way and settled my case in a timely manner. Thank you so much for your help.
