The new year is traditionally a time for new beginnings but, unfortunately, that’s not always the case. An eight-car pile-up on Turnpike and Southwest 288th Street in Florida saw 6 people admitted to hospital, with one suffering serious injuries. Just before 5am on January 14th, emergency crews were called to the scene of the accident, where fire rescue crews worked to free the driver from one vehicle by removing the roof. This is another example of the car accidents that occur all too often across Cooper City and other parts of Florida, as our experienced car accident attorneys can confirm.
Why Are Car Accidents So Common in Florida?
Florida drivers have been ranked the worst in the USA for the second time recently, but what is it that makes them so bad? In terms of fatalities per 100 million miles driven, both Broward and Miami-Dade are amongst the worst counties in Florida. If you’ve been involved in a car accident in or near Cooper City, experienced car accident attorney, Bradley S. Hartman could help you achieve the settlement you deserve. For information, the other four states in the top five ranking are Mississippi, Oklahoma, New Jersey and Delaware.
There are quite a few factors which could be contributing to Florida’s dubious honor of being home to the worst drivers and the highest proportion of fatalities in the nation, including the popularity of the state amongst tourists using GPS as they drive along unfamiliar roads. There may also be some language barrier, meaning drivers visiting the area are unable to correctly read all road signs, leading to potential confusion and resulting accidents.
As Florida always has a disproportionately high number of uninsured drivers on the roads, you may encounter problems when making a claim for repair, medical or other expenses following an accident. For this reason, an experienced Cooper City car accident attorney who’ll take a personal and comprehensive approach to pursuing compensation can be an invaluable contact.
