Located just four miles inland from the Atlantic Ocean, Margate is a city of 25,000 residents located in Broward County.
Margate Personal Injury Attorney Richard Ansara and the staff at our law offices represent clients in personal injury and wrongful death lawsuits in Margate and the surrounding areas, including Coconut Creek, Tamarac and Coral Springs.
Unfortunately, Florida is among the nation’s deadliest states for all types of traffic accidents, including bicycle accidents, pedestrian accidents, drunk driving accidents, distracted driving accidents, motorcycle accidents and trucking accidents. The Florida Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles reports about 2,500 motorists are killed each year in Florida and nearly 200,000 are seriously injured.
As an experienced Margate pedestrian accident attorney, Richard Ansara understands the risks are particularly high for walkers – The Miami-Fort Lauderdale area is among the deadliest in the nation. And the number of Margate bicycle accidents continues to climb as officials stress bike sharing and work to improve the bike-trail infrastructure so critical to cycling for fun and fitness.
When an accident occurs – particularly given today’s high cost of medical care – it’s important to protect your legal rights. The insurance companies, doctors and hospitals all have attorneys who deal with serious and fatal accidents every day. Seeking legal advice in the aftermath of a traffic accident can help protect the financial wellbeing of you and your family. In some cases, the extent of injury may not be immediately known -- serious injuries may take weeks or months to present themselves.
Your Margate injury lawyer will review the facts and circumstances of your accident, and help you identify at-fault parties and their insurance companies. Among the most critical tasks of any injury case is properly identifying the parties. This can include an at-fault driver and his insurance policy – as well as other insurance polices in place on other vehicles in the household. In some cases, a manufacturer may be partially to blame. Or the city may have been neglectful in maintaining a road or in ensuring the traffic signals were functioning properly.
