Car accidents are one of the leading causes of injury in the country. More than 37,000 people die in car crashes every year, and another 2.35 million are injured or disabled. Crashes also range from small bumper-to-bumper collisions to huge multiple-car pileups that can result in catastrophic injury or wrongful death.
If you’ve been injured in a car accident that resulted from careless driving, contact our experienced attorneys today.
CAR ACCIDENT INJURIES
Car accidents can lead to a significant amount of damage, ranging from whiplash to severe spinal damage. Additionally, people can experience some of the following:
- Traumatic brain injury
- Spinal damage
- Broken bones
Treatment for the injuries can also take anywhere from a few days to a few years. For people who experience catastrophic injuries, some of them never recover at all. The primary reason people seek compensation for personal injuries is the cost of the damage, not only in the moment but for the next foreseeable future. A severe spinal injury, for example, could wind up costing someone more than 4 million dollars in medical bills, therapy, assisted living costs, and lost wages.
MINIMUM INSURANCE COVERAGE
Most people rely on insurance to cover the majority of their costs when an injury occurs. Each state has its own requirement for minimum auto liability coverage, and Florida is no different. In the state, all people must have a policy which covered $10,000 in personal injury protection and $10,000 in property damage liability. However, take a look at these numbers:
- The average cost of a 3-day hospital stay is around $30,000
- Fixing a broken leg can cost up to $7,500
Drivers who have two broken legs would be exceeding the personal injury protection limit of all drivers who meet the minimum coverage only. Underinsured drivers and uninsured drivers can make getting compensation difficult.
