We all depend on our cars to get from Point A to Point B. But when it comes to car accidents in Florida, where you drive is almost as important as how you drive. Over the years, numerous studies and surveys have been conducted to determine which cities in the Sunshine State are most dangerous for drivers. One of the most comprehensive is conducted annually by the Allstate Insurance Company. While Miami ranks 9th in the nation, you may be surprised to learn Hialeah ranks an alarming third in the nation. But why is Miami-Dade County a magnet for accidents?
The statistics are alarming. According to the Allstate study, the average driver will be involved in a car accident in Miami every 7.8 years, which is a 28.2 percent higher than the national average. The statistics are not much better in Broward County. Residents in the 954 have a 27.1 percent better chance of getting into a car accident than the national average. Here are some of the contributing factors.
You do not have to look at statistics to know Miami ranks high for car accidents. Keep in mind, the Allstate statistics only apply to the company’s policyholders. Unfortunately, Miami also has a large amount of uninsured drivers that are not counted among those same statistics. If you have been involved in a car accident in Miami, it is important to have an attorney that can help you get the maximum settlement to cover your damages, losses along with your pain and suffering.
