Because driving a car is part of daily life, it’s easy to forget how dangerous it is. Unfortunately, car accidents are an everyday concern in the State of Florida. Statistically, we will end up in at least one or two car accidents in our lifetime.
In Florida, there are about 7.7 million licensed drivers, yet this number does not account for the many unlicensed drivers that are out on our streets every day. Many undocumented immigrants drive out of the necessity of getting to work, risking a traffic stop that could lead to deportation. Although few states allow undocumented immigrants to get a license using a tax identification number, a passport or proof of residence, the majority do not. Many undocumented immigrants are unable to get a license, and cannot get insurance, leaving them very vulnerable in the event of an accident. That vulnerability plus the fear of deportation and vehicle repossession cause some unlicensed illegals to panic and flee an accident scene.
Unfortunately, most car accidents are inevitable. Even with all the increased safety features by motor vehicle manufacturers and precautions taken by those building our roads, every year there are more than 2.5 million people injured in automobile, motorcycle, or trucking accidents.

When you’re on a motorcycle, it’s just you and the road. Motorcycle enthusiasts often talk about the freedom of the open road, but because motorcycles are inherently different than cars, motorcycle accidents and subsequent legal issues are also different from car accidents.
Motorcycle deaths accounted for 13 percent of all motor vehicle crash deaths. Cars and trucks are built with more and more safety features while motorcycles still depend upon clothing and helmets for protection from the road. Because the rider or passenger is often thrown off the vehicle with such great force, motorcycle accidents often result in severe head and neck injuries.
Most people automatically blame motorcyclists when they are involved in a crash with another vehicle. We know the truth. Most motorcycle accidents are caused by drivers or other factors outside of the motorcyclist’s control. Most motorcycle accidents happen because another driver didn’t see the motorcyclist or wasn’t paying attention. Because a motorcyclist cannot prevent others’ negligence, even the most experienced riders are left at risk for injury.
Motorists need to be held responsible for their actions. Our firm understands this and works to protect motorcyclists from others’ negligence.
America’s roads and highways are where we run our errands, travel to see family or enjoy a trip to a new city. But they are also the lifeline of much of the United States economy, meaning the roadway can be packed with commercial truckers.
A commercial truck accident is far more dangerous than a regular traffic accident due to the weight and velocity of a commercial truck. These hulking trucks can weigh more than 80,000 pounds, much larger than a typical automobile, which maxes out at about 30,000 pounds. A large commercial truck may cause devastating damage to another car, and the driver of the car may be injured.
Every year thousands of people are killed and tens of thousands of people are injured in accidents involving big commercial trucks, which are different than your average car accident. These cases tend to be more complex, as they hinge upon both state and federal laws. In addition, special legislation, rules, and policies from the Interstate Commerce Commission (ICC) and the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) play a huge role in truck accident claims. There is simply a myriad of regulations from multiple parties that must be considered. These parties include federal agencies as well as the trucking company with which the driver is affiliated. All these regulations may have an impact on any injury claims.
Because these cases are so layered and complex, you want to make sure that you obtain legal advice from a team with experience and proven results.
