Recent events have caused all sorts of increases in drivers’ risky behaviors. In 2020, Miami car accident fatalities increased, even though traffic was down. More so than ever, Miami drivers are distracted, hurried and just plain ornery. Even as traffic returns to the area, bad habits persist. South Florida has become a crowded place as tourists flock to the area, joining the millions of people who call the area home.
Miami has more than its dangerous share of intersections. Included on this list are:
Miami is a distracting place to begin with, as there always seem to be people everywhere. Some days, the city seems like one large construction zone filled with bad drivers. It is no surprise that accidents happen here, and plenty of them.
There are a number of causes of Miami car accidents besides just plain bad driving. Miami motorists are known for being aggressive. Some are just plain careless. They often do bad things on the road, such as:
All of this could be considered examples of negligence. This is the legal term of art that is used when someone else is responsible for your injuries. It is also the reason why someone else would need to pay you for the harm that they caused.
The first place to go to get the money that you may legally deserve is the other driver’s insurance company. This involves an entire process that could be difficult, especially for the average accident victim who is already dealing with physical injuries.
This is why you need a car accident lawyer by your side. In a way, your attorney works as a protector of your legal rights. Without them, you may be at risk to the usual business that insurance companies give claimants. They simply do not like to pay claims. When they do, it will be for less than the claim is worth, unless you have an attorney who can stand up for you.
The legal process takes time, and that is why it is essential to begin today with the help of an experienced lawyer. The dangers of waiting to begin the process are that you may lose valuable evidence, and the insurance company may work to pressure you into making a mistake or settling your claim too early. Besides, knowing that you are working towards possible financial compensation could give you some peace of mind.
