According to the U.S. Department of Transportation and the National Center for Statistics and Analysis, motor vehicle traffic crashes rank as the 8th leading overall cause of death in the United States. In individuals ages four through 33, motor vehicle accidents are the leading cause of death.
Americans are more likely to die in a motor vehicle accident than from any other cause except heart disease, cancer, and stroke, according to the National Safety Council. In Florida, thousands of people die in motor vehicle accidents every year and thousands more are injured. It is the number one cause of death for teens.

Stop Insurance Adjusters From Taking Advantage of You
Florida is a no-fault state, which means that every driver with an automobile must have personal injury protection (or PIP) coverage. In most cases, PIP coverage covers 80% of the medical bills and 60% of lost wages up to $10,000, regardless of who was at fault. In some cases, the owner or driver who caused the crash does not have insurance and you may have to try to recover your damages from your own uninsured or underinsured motorist policy. In this situations, an experienced accident attorney can help you recover damages.
Insurance companies will try to pay you as little as possible for your accident-related losses. They will look for any opportunity to deny coverage completely, even for perfectly valid claims. Injured people often don't have the strength or ability to fight for their rights. We do.
