While Melbourne, Florida, is a relatively small town, the roads and highways within our city limits and throughout Brevard County bear witness to life-changing automobile and car accident injuries on a regular basis. It is an unfortunate reality that, with the privilege of driving and independence, also comes the risk of injury to ourselves and others. Fortunately, the law provides a mechanism for individuals to seek compensation for economic losses suffered as a result of a car accident.
According to the Florida Department of Motor Vehicles, there’s an average of 200,000 automobile and car accidents in Florida per year. With a population of just under twenty million, that means that 1 of 20 people will be involved in a car crash annually. However, that ratio is much greater when taking into account that many car accidents involve multiple passengers traveling in multiple vehicles.
If you have been injured in an automobile accident in Brevard, FL, you should strongly consider contacting a local Melbourne accident attorney. An accident lawyer can help you determine whether you may be eligible for compensation.
