Car, Motorcycle and Truck Accidents
Car Crash and Motor Vehicle Accident Lawyers
Auto accidents in Melbourne, Palm Bay and Brevard County have steadily increased since the 1990s, due in large part to increased car and truck traffic, ongoing road construction on I-95 and the Florida Turnpike, cell phone usage, and other driver distractions.
This trend increases your chances of being in an accident, and if you are involved in an automobile accident, you need to move quickly to protect your legal rights and understand your recourse. Remember, some of your injuries may not be apparent at first or may grow worse with time.
Use care when choosing an attorney. Too often, the focus of inexperienced attorneys in car accident cases is solely on the cause of the collision, fault between the parties, and insurance bad faith / insurance claimissues. Experienced trial attorneys, however, also focus their efforts on “second collision” claims. These claims address automobile safety and stability features that fail to provide a vehicle occupant reasonable protection from injury, regardless of the cause of the crash. In catastrophic injury cases, where the injured victim needs extensive medical care, this experience and understanding may mean the difference between life and death.
