Does Florida Have The Worst Drivers In America?

According to recent surveys, Florida has the worst drivers in America. The basis for this reputation is all too clear on the roads, where car accidents are too common and occur on a daily basis. At Oppenheim Law, we can help you bring the appropriate claim if you have been injured in an auto accident. We can assist you in the recovery of insurance benefits as well as litigation, against the party at fault or the manufacturer, for recovery of damages. In the event you have lost a family member in an accident, you may be able to bring a wrongful death lawsuit in your own name.

Common causes of vehicle accidents include:

  • Distracted drivers
  • Excessive speed
  • Driver fatigue
  • Alcohol and drugs
  • Road conditions
  • Reckless driving
  • Disobeying traffic signals and laws
  • Design defects
  • Road rage

Please contact us online or by phone at 954-384-6114 so our attorneys can advise you of your options following an automobile accident, whether you are the injured party or the loved one of a victim.
