A Higher Number Of Accident Injuries Have Come With Florida's Growth

Research shows that not very long ago, Florida's population sat at 21.67 million. That's a huge number, but here we are just a short time later, and the figure has increased. Now, it is estimated that 22,177,997 people call the Sunshine State home. Who can blame people for flocking here, really? Our economy is bustling, and plenty of opportunities exist. Plus, the weather is usually great, minus those days when tropical storms or hurricanes come around, dumping inches and inches of rain.

However, due to so many people being in Sarasota, roadways are congested, and accidents are occurring quite frequently. Have you been in a crash recently and one that wasn't your fault? Are you hurt, and do you believe another's negligence is why that is? If that's the case, you might have the grounds to seek compensation from them for your damages. Now, let's look at some reasons why you might want to do that.

Expensive Medical Bills

Head injuries, according to The Brain Injury Institute, are some of the costliest injuries people can have, and why wouldn't they be? Neurologists and other specialists are needed to diagnose and treat the conditions. Not to mention, machines are required for imaging and scans. And what about medications? Prescriptions often written for symptoms associated with TBI include:

• Propofol
• Aspirin
• Mannitol
• Carbamazepine

All of these things add up, but how much a traumatic brain injury costs will vary from person to person. Some individuals may spend have to spend around $600,000 on the conditions. Meanwhile, others will go millions of dollars in debt, paying for everything. Hence, why seek compensation after a crash with a negligent driver? If for nothing else, to combat the high medical expenses that getting severely injured in a wreck can create.

Loss Of Income

If you're still looking for a reason to seek compensation after an accident with a negligent driver, how about the loss of income you'll likely experience? Often, people cannot work after sustaining severe injuries in wrecks. They simply can't perform the physical or mental duties jobs ask of them. However, that doesn't stop their bills from piling up. If you're injured by a negligent motorist and can't earn a paycheck, think of all the financial challenges that could come about.

Not only will there be new expenses for doctors, procedures, etc., but you'll also be trying to cover normal bills like rent and groceries. Don't go through money woes if someone's negligence causes you grief. Instead, hold them accountable by letting an attorney recover the compensation for lost income you deserve.

A Loved One's Final Expenses

What if you aren't the one that things happen to? For example, maybe your wife's car is hit by a drunk driver on the way home from work one evening. Unfortunately, the event claimed your spouse's life, but on the plus side, she was killed instantly, so there was no suffering. Of course, you'll be grieving, but you will also need to handle the funeral and burial at some point and probably sooner rather than later. However, will you even have the money? After all, research shows the average cost for a viewing and burial in the United States runs $7,360 today. Thus, you might want to seek compensation to ensure you can afford your loved one's final expenses.

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.
