North Port is a busy area with many tourist attractions. This gathering of those looking about themselves leads to a lot of traffic, leading to a lot of traffic accidents.
In one recent year, Sarasota County experienced over 10,000 accidents resulting in 61 deaths. Those who die in car accidents in the county are overwhelmingly males between the age of 15 and 20. Pedestrian deaths related to tourism continue to rise, and Florida continues to experience some of the highest accident rates in the United States.
Most car accidents happen because of someone’s negligence. Usually, that negligence is another driver’s, but it can be the negligence of a government or property owner creating adverse conditions on the road.
At that point, assuming you were not the victim of an intentional vehicular assault, you will need to prove that the at-fault driver or drivers:
You may have done some of these things at the scene. On the other hand, you may have suffered such a significant injury that you didn’t do anything at the scene except take an ambulance away from it.
In any case, in preparation for settling or litigating your recovery, someone needs to gather:
Florida has a four-year statute of limitations for car accident cases. While four years may seem like a long time, it can go by very fast when you are distracted by your physical, emotional, and mental recovery from an accident.
The damages you suffer in an accident, whether economic or non-economic, hit you directly in the pocket.
These out-of-pocket or no longer coming in damages are what you are seeking compensation for from the insurance company and the defendant.
An experienced car accident attorney will be intimately familiar with the potential damages you may have suffered in a car accident. Recovery will be more efficient with a skilled attorney handling the negotiations.
