Just last week, this blog looked at the prevalence of drunk driving accidents on the state's roads. Drunk driving is just one cause of the many car collisions Brevard residents attempt to avoid each and every day; distracted driving, reckless driving, and many other causes also create hazards for individuals traveling on streets and highways. At the core of many of these bad driving scenarios is negligence on the part of the responsible motor vehicle operator.
Florida is a tourist mecca for individuals from all over the world. With major transportation hubs located throughout the state, many people arrive and depart from the area on a daily basis. For many individuals, air travel is the means by which they get to Florida. The state boasts several major airports in the large cities within its borders.
Car accidents occur all over Florida each day and in serious crashes victims suffer significant damages and injuries. While some accidents are victim-caused, others result when other motorists fail to abide by the rules of the road and create hazards. When the negligent or reckless driving of another person causes a victim to suffer injuries, that victim can find himself facing difficult financial problems.
When fatal accidents are the result of the negligence of another person or entity, the victim's family may have legal recourse. When medical malpractice, car accidents, workplace accidents or other forms of negligence play a role in a person's death, it is important that family members know whether or not they should seek legal help.
