Auto Accidents Are Seeing an Upward Trend Across the Country

In many states, the coronavirus pandemic has caused the roads to become more empty, however, because of this, many motorists are becoming more and more reckless.

Here are some of the questions you may have:

What are the most common causes of auto accidents?

Auto accidents can occur for any number of reasons, though we most frequently see auto accidents happen due to driver negligence. Texting while driving, driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol, speeding, and driving while drowsy or fatigued. If you are someone who was injured by a motorist who was doing any of the aforementioned at the time of your accident, there is a very good chance that you will qualify for compensation.

How do I know if I can sue someone for an accident?

As long as you and your Orlando personal injury attorney can prove that you were injured as a direct result of another party’s negligence, you should recover the financial compensation you deserve and need to heal. To prove these claims, our firm can work to obtain medical records, pictures or videos of the accident as it happened, witness statements confirming your claim, police reports of the accident, and more. All you have to do is give us a call.

How long do I have to sue after an auto accident in Florida?

The statute of limitations for personal injury claims in Florida is, generally, four years, leaving the wrongly injured, in most cases, four years from the date of their accident to take legal action against the party responsible. Though you may wish to wait to see if your injuries heal on their own, we cannot advise you to do so, for if you wait too long, there is a very good chance that you will be barred from suing.
