Homestead, Florida is part of Miami-Dade county and has a current population of over 60,000. Home to many interesting attractions such as the Coral Castle, a large and mysterious collection of giant pieces of coral, assembled single-handedly by a Latvian immigrant. Unfortunately, great works of art like this can be a distraction to Homestead drivers as well as those from out of town traveling through. Driving while distracted by giant coral monuments is just one of the many factors that cause accidents on Florida’s roadways. Miami-Dade county is ranked as the most dangerous county in Florida for drivers due to the high volume of vehicle operators and the limited amounts of space for them to safely navigate the area. Negligent behavior is the leading cause of car accidents around the world. When people don’t play by the rules and follow safety guidelines, they put themselves and everyone around at risk. Common dangerous behaviors include:

These factors in combination with the reckless style of driving that many people in South Florida seem to have adopted, can lead to very serious collisions with intense physical and legal ramifications. A lot of people feel the need to drive fast and switch between cars on the highway because they are late, or perhaps they believe that they’re the only ones who drive like that. Both reasons are irrelevant, because the laws of the road were designed to ensure safety for everybody on the road, giving nobody special privileges. When drivers behave negligently or act as though they are above the law, the risk of collision increases dramatically. Injuries are very common in automotive accidents. For such a seemingly mundane and everyday activity, driving doesn’t seem like risky behavior, however the number of fatal car accidents in Florida is climbing each year. Common injuries sustained from car accidents include:

  • Burns and scars
  • Head injuries
  • Joint, muscle, neck, back and bone injuries
  • Knee and joint damage
  • Whiplash
  • Spinal cord injuries
  • Paralysis
  • Loss of limbs
  • Permanent disability
  • Wrongful Death

Serious injuries sustained by an individual like the ones listed above can bestow tremendous pressure on them, both financial and physical. But what about their families? In some cases, the victim of a car accident is a household’s primary source of income and their whole lives are put on hold while they are dealing with whatever injuries they had sustained.
