FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
(Miami, FL)–In Miami Dade County, Florida, automobile traffic collisions traditionally average nearly 50,000 every year, with the Miam-Dade Health Department records showing three zip codes within Miami-Dade County regularly have the highest percentages of traffic fatalities. These were the zip codes for Opa-Locka and part of Miami Gardens (33054); Aladdin City (33187); and Florida City (33034). According to local industry experts, distracted drivers are increasingly at fault for many of these car accidents, leading victims to seek compensation for their injuries.
In light of these alarming statistics, Miami Lawyers 360, a local personal injury law firm focusing on cases of neglect and malpractice, recently announced free consultation services to victims of auto accidents and other personal injury situations. According to Enrique Percival, spokesperson for the firm, while car accidents are not the only ways personal injury cases can arrise, they are the most common. Says Percival, “The most common examples of personal injury cases include car accident/injury claims, medical malpractice claims, premises liability claims (such as slip-and-falls), products liability cases and workplace injury cases. To help local Miami victims, we now offer a free consultation to anyone who feels they may have a case which requires compensation.”
Percival emphasizes the importance of finding an attorney soon after the injury occurs, stating, “Time is of the essence, and the sooner the lawyer can begin assembling the information necessary to bring a claim, assembling medical records, gathering witness statements and conducting an investigation into the circumstances of the accident, the better. The more time a lawyer has to do this, the more hopeful the outcome . It is also important to move quickly because evidence has a tendency to disappear. The sooner an attorney can start investigating, the greater the odds witnesses, photos or videos are still around and can; therefore, still be preserved.”
According to Percival, many victims are unsure about what to expect from the first consultation meeting and are nervous or scared meeting with an attorney, often for the first time. “We encourage people to relax and let us help them. We simply ask a few background questions about the accident and review the police report and photographs. Additionally, we encourage you to bring along any pictures you may have with you to the meeting. We also ask that you bring any documentation, insurance coverage for your car, medical records, bills or x-ray CDs, letters from insurance companies or other information you feel is important. Once we fully understand the nature of the case, we can decide the best course of action.”
