Just like any region in the country, Miami-Dade County sees its fair share of injuries. What makes Miami-Dade County unique is that as a tourist hot spot, it sees many injuries sustained by tourists and also by workers and locals at theme parks or through the tourism sector. Cruise ship injuries, for example, are more common in Miami-Dade County than in other parts of the country, simply because Miami is a major port of call.
Sustaining an injury at any time is a challenge, but it can be even more difficult if you’re visiting the area or if you’re in a car accident or other incident with a person who is not a resident of Miami-Dade County. These situations can be more complex because you may be dealing with insurance companies in other parts of the country or even in other countries. In addition, many of the cruise ships in the port may be owned by companies headquartered outside of Florida, making jurisdiction an issue.
In addition, the millions of visitors to Miami-Dade County can create additional pressure on traffic and transportation. In fact, Miami-Dade County is among the top in the country for hit and run accidents, traffic accidents and pedestrian and bicycle accidents. This can mean injuries can be more common here than in other parts of the country and storm systems often disproportionately affect coastal areas such as Miami-Dade County, which can also lead to injury and property damage.Finding an Attorney in Miami-Dade County
