Every day, Florida residents are injured and killed in car accidents. The Florida Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles says more than 181,000 people were injured and 2,400 were killed in motor vehicle accidents in Florida in 2011. More than 150 people were killed in the First Coast area alone.
Though they are almost always unintentional, the vast majority of car accidents are caused by a driver’s negligence. When this happens and someone is injured or killed, the driver at fault has a responsibility to those who have been hurt as a result of their negligence.
If you have been injured in a car accident that was not your fault, there may be compensation available to help with the cost of your recovery from the negligent driver’s insurance company. Every accident victim harmed through the fault of another driver deserves experienced professional legal guidance. The lawyers and staff of Pajcic & Pajcic in Jacksonville may be able to help you obtain a full and fair recovery.

Most car accidents are caused by some form of driver error, such as failing to slow down, an improper turn, drifting out of a lane, and so on. Many times there is an underlying cause of the error. Typically some sort of irresponsible behavior by a driver – known as negligence – is the real cause of a car accident. Common factors in car accidents include:
Each of the car accident causes above involves a negligent decision on the part of a driver. And when these dangerous decisions result in an accident that causes injury or death, the individual driver who has acted negligently may be held accountable for the losses suffered by others. Car accident factors not related to drivers include:
In these cases, the organization – a car parts manufacturer or distributor, or a government agency or contractor responsible for a dangerous stretch of road or a work zone – may be held accountable after a car crash.
If you have been injured in a car accident caused by someone else’s negligence, you may have a right to compensation for your medical expenses, property damage, lost income, pain and suffering and other damages.
