Irresponsible drivers shatter the lives of their victims on a daily basis. Every year, almost 40,000 people die on U.S. roadways due to crashes. Additionally, over 4 million sustain injuries sufficient to merit medical attention. South Florida, one of the most populous regions in the country, accounts for thousands upon thousands of those serious injuries. If you are one of them, please continue reading, then contact an experienced Miami car accident lawyer today.

How should you react to a car accident in South Florida?

First and foremost, you should seek medical attention for your injuries. Once you have called emergency services, you should take photos and videos of the accident scene as well as any damage to you and/or your property. If possible, you should also gather the contact information of any witnesses to the accident. After the police have responded, you should obtain a copy of their report. Likewise, you should obtain your medical record. Before you proceed any further, you should strongly consider retaining the services of a skilled Miami auto accident lawyer. Together, you can prepare a lawsuit against the at-fault party. This evidence may or may not be used in court, but it will come in useful.

How do you prove your South Florida car accident case?

You and your legal representative will have to use everything at your disposal to prove that the other party or parties own all or most of the fault for the accident. To that end, your evidence should prove that the other driver:

  • Engaged in distracted driving, such as texting
  • Drove while drowsy or fatigued
  • Was under the influence of alcohol or drugs, even if prescribed
  • Ran stop signs or stop lights
  • Failed to yield to oncoming vehicles with the right of way
  • Changed lanes or merged unsafely
  • Exceeded the speed limit
