More than half way down into the Florida Keys, the tropical island paradise of Marathon, Florida attracts thousands of tourists every year, all of whom arrive in motor vehicles. While Marathon is a small community with few roads, US1 poses a serious risk, as do the flock of tourists who do not know their way around as well as locals do. The sudden influx of visitors during the peak season of November through March quickly creates traffic problems, including serious car accidents and collisions and critical injuries. In fact, February and March, which coincide with the highly tourist-attractive Marathon Seafood Festival. are the most dangerous months to be on the roads of Marathon, with over 250 car crashes occurring each of those months in Monroe county in 2016, according to Florida’s Integrated Report Exchange System.

- Determining the cause of the crash so as to accurately place liability;
- Compiling all of your damages (medical, pain and suffering, property damage, lost wages, etc.);
