The Closer It Gets To The Holidays, The More Crowded The Roads Will Become

Florida is a bit different than most other states during the holiday season. Of course, loved ones come to visit family members for Thanksgiving and Christmas, just like everywhere else. However, due to the weather, amusement parks, and attractions, many folks plan their vacations to The Sunshine State around the holidays. Heck, some parents even give the trips to their kiddos as a Christmas present.

It is an excellent gift idea as the journey can broaden the family’s horizons. The recipients are able to take in the incredible sights, which they may never see again, and persons can partake in activities that might not be available to them where they live. All of these things sound like peaches and cream. However, with so many people gathering in a single location at one time, the Florida roadways can become jam-packed.

Sure, the increased traffic is good for local businesses, as consumers buy fuel, souvenirs, and more from them, but, at the same time, it can prove to be dangerous for residents and tourists alike. Sometimes, more pedestrians, bicycles, vehicles, and motorcycles can equal catastrophe. Why? Well, all it takes is for a single motorist to lose focus for an accident to occur.

The Trip Of A Lifetime Could Become A Nightmare

Injuries often become part of the equation, regardless of what type of incident occurs. No two accidents are the same, though. As such, wounds will vary on a case by case basis. For these purposes, this article is going to discuss some of the common ones associated with car crashes. After auto collisions, people typically sustain damages such as…

• Spinal Cord Injuries
• Traumatic Brain Injury
• Fractures And Broken Bones
• Deep Lacerations/Puncture wounds
• Death

Thus, the family could wind up having to spend all of their time at the hospital or funeral home instead of sticking to the intended itinerary. These are the last things people want to be doing, but unfortunately, there is no telling when an accident might strike. Therefore, a nightmare scenario could turn into a reality in the blink of an eye.

Victims May Be Able To Recover Compensation From An At-Fault Party

If a vehicle operator’s recklessness caused the accident, victims might want to consider hiring an attorney to file a lawsuit against them. Driving while under the influence of alcohol, speeding, texting while behind the wheel, and ignoring street signs are only several types of negligent acts that could lead to this action. Yet, proving that the other party committed one of these items is easier said than done. That is where our lawyers come into play. They have comprehensive knowledge of the Florida legal system, resources to take the case to trial if need be, and provide every client with the personal attention that they crave.

Going it alone against an insurance company or the other person’s legal team can be a recipe for disaster. These individuals don’t tend to play fair, and they do not have the victim’s best interest in mind. Rather, both groups have one primary goal, which is paying out the smallest settlement possible. They attempt to delay the proceedings, hoping that the injured person will run out of money and accept a low-ball offer. In many instances, these professionals even try to twist and distort the truth to make it look like the wounded party did something wrong.

Thankfully, Floridians and tourists don’t have to simply take these matters lying down as our firm is here to help. The team will collect witness statements, driver histories, accident reports, mobile phone data, and more to build the strongest case possible. So, don’t get taken advantage of during your time of need. Instead, pick up the phone and give us a call to schedule a free consultation today.
