The Florida Department of Motor Vehicles reports that more than 230,000 people were involved in motor vehicle accidents in the span of only one year. Of these victims, more than 2,000 were killed and another 197,214 were injured.
Many of these accidents were caused by the negligence of another driver — someone who refused to follow the rules of the road. These drivers often engaged in distracted driving or changing lanes without using proper traffic signals. Some of them even drove while drunk or under the influence of drugs.

Automobile Defects Can Increase Your Injuries
In some cases, car manufacturers or repair shops are responsible for causing or increasing injuries in auto accidents. For instance, the tire may be defective and cause a blowout, an air bag or seat belt may be faulty and fail to protect the vehicle's occupants, or the brakes may be defective and fail to stop the vehicle in time.
What To Do If You Have Been Injured In A Car Accident
If you have been harmed in a car crash, your first priority should be getting prompt medical attention. Sometimes people are so overwhelmed by an accident that they don't notice the full extent of their injuries until much later. Because they do not get medical attention quickly, they miss a critical window of time when injuries can be detected and treated. Acting quickly allows doctors to take effective action regarding serious personal injuries such as brain injury, head injury, paralysis and back, spine and neck injuries.
After a car accident, your second priority should be talking with attorney Keith Warnock. Mr. Warnock will thoroughly investigate the accident, noting key evidence that could play an important role in getting the compensation you deserve. He will review the police report, talk with witnesses and consult with experts, as needed. He also handles all communications with insurance companies so that you can focus on what matters most: moving forward with your life.
