Many car accidents, due primarily to the heavy traffic along Kendall’s roadways, including those traveling through Olympia Heights, Tamiami and Westwood Lakes, such as US1 and Kendall Drive, result in serious personal injuries.

Unfortunately, we live in the most dangerous roadway region in the country. According to a recent study, U.S. Highway 1 is the most dangerous road in the nation, with 1,011 fatal crashes over the past 10 years, as reported by the Sun Sentinel. U.S. 1, which is 530 miles long, passes right through Kendall; thousands of Kendall residents suffer severe injuries on U.S. 1 and countless other highways and surface streets each year. Part of the issue is the ever growing population of south Florida, which is the eighth most populated metropolitan area in the country, according to the Miami Herald. However, not all accidents can be blamed on road conditions or congestion. Our attorneys hold irresponsible drivers accountable for reckless driving, drunk driving, careless driving, texting, failing to yield, and aggression.Lax Laws Means More Crashes, Greater Difficulty Receiving Compensation from Negligent Party
Florida law does not require drivers to carry a great amount of financial responsibility when they get behind the steering wheel, which leads to increased careless and reckless driving, as well as victims suffering the financial burden of another’s negligence. In fact, Florida is so lax when it comes to protecting the rights of injured traffic victims that it does not require drivers to carry any bodily injury liability insurance.
