There’s no telling what type of danger may be lurking on a Florida roadway when you get behind the wheel to drive. While most road trips are rather uneventful save perhaps the irritation of being stuck in traffic or at a red light that seems to last forever, others can suddenly take a turn for the worse if another driver is negligent or reckless. In fact, a car accident may not only have immediate consequences, such as a personal injury, but can have long-term negative repercussions as well.
If you wind up in the hospital because a distracted or drunk driver hit you, you might have to spend numerous days or weeks in recovery. While you may be able to heal at home, your injuries might prevent you from returning to the workplace. Situations like this often cause financial distress.

Damages often extend beyond the pain and suffering associated with physical injuries to include items such as loss of wages, medical expenses loss of companionship.
