Are you seeking compensation for a recent auto accident?

Work with a Compassionate Fort Lauderdale Auto Accident Attorney

Auto Accidents come in many shapes and forms–from mild to severe, they are often unexpected and are rarely a pleasant experience. Depending on the situation, you may be entitled to substantial compensation after your accident. While dwelling on the accident might be the last thing you want to do, it is absolutely in your best interest to contact the a seasoned Broward County auto accident attorney like Gabriela C. Novo. Calling for a consultation is your best course of action to determine what the best way to proceed is, and whether you can earn relief from your damages in a court of law.

By definition, a traffic collision occurs when a vehicle collides with another vehicle, pedestrian, animal, road debris, or other stationary obstruction, such as a tree or utility pole. Traffic collisions may result in injury, death, vehicle damage, and property damage.

A number of factors contribute to the risk of collision, including vehicle design, speed of operation, road design, road environment, driver skill and/or impairment, and driver behavior. Worldwide, motor vehicle collisions lead to death and disability as well as financial costs to both society and the individuals involved.

Depending on the circumstances, you may be entitled to compensation which can cover personal injuries, trauma, psychological damage, lost wages and more. Consulting with an experienced Broward County auto accident attorney should be one of the first steps you take after your, or your loved one’s accident.

Traffic collisions can usually be classified by a set of subcategories. Types of collision include head-on, road departure, rear-end, side collisions, and rollovers.

Many different terms are commonly used to describe vehicle collisions. The World Health Organization uses the term road traffic injury, [2] while the U.S. Census Bureau uses the term motor vehicle accidents (MVA),[3] and Transport Canada uses the term “motor vehicle traffic collision” (MVTC).[4] Other terms that are commonly used include auto accident, car accident, car crash, car smash, car wreck, motor vehicle collision (MVC), personal injury collision (PIC), road accident, road traffic accident (RTA), road traffic collision (RTC), road traffic incident (RTI), road traffic accident and later road traffic collision, as well as more unofficial terms including smash-up, pile-up, and fender bender.

Some organizations have begun to avoid the term “accident” altogether. Although auto collisions are rare in terms of the number of vehicles on the road and the distance they travel, addressing the contributing factors can reduce their likelihood. For example, proper signage can decrease driver error and thereby reduce crash frequency by a third or more. [5]

Treating collisions as anything other than “accidents” has been criticized for holding back safety improvements, because a culture of blame may discourage the involved parties from fully disclosing the facts, and thus frustrate attempts to address the real root causes.[6]

If you or a loved one have been injured in a Motor Vehicle Collision, aside from recovery, seeking out a trusted attorney should absolutely be your first priority. Contact Gabriela C. Novo, a Ft Lauderdale auto accident lawyer, for a free, no-strings-attached consultation to see if you have a case.
