When you travel by motor vehicle in Florida, you can reasonably expect nearby drivers to obey traffic laws. You don’t have to worry about icy roads or unexpected blizzards in this state, but you might be in immediate danger if there is a distracted or drunk driver in the vicinity. Car accident injuries can have long-lasting emotional, physical and economic consequences.
State law allows you to seek compensation for damages if another driver’s negligence causes you harm. It is not your fault if someone consumes alcohol then gets behind the wheel to drive and fails to stop at a red light or veers head-on into your lane. Personal injury litigation is challenging and often stressful, however.
As a plaintiff, you must first prove that the defendant named in your case was negligent. You must also convince the court that his or her negligence was a direct cause of your injuries. Unless you have an extensive background in personal injury law, you might have a difficult time building a strong case.
