Miami Gardens Passenger Safety

The goal of many safety systems and traffic rules is to help passengers and drivers to survive crashes. Seatbelts, airbags, and other safety systems are designed to help reduce the risk of injuries, including internal injuries, head trauma, and spinal cord injuries in Miami Gardens and other communities. While they are often very effective at helping to prevent injury, however, they are not failsafe. In some cases, these systems fail to work correctly. In other cases, a car or truck accident is so severe, even safety systems cannot prevent serious injury to passengers.

In these cases, you may wish to consult with a personal injury attorney if have been injured. The attorneys at Flaxman Law Group have more than 60 years of combined experience helping victims of car accidents get fair compensation for their injuries. We can help you explore all your options and can help you understand what you can do to pursue fair compensation.

Passengers Often Sustain Serious Injury

Passengers in broadside accidents in Miami Gardens or in head-on collisions, rear end collisions, or other traffic accident can be seriously injured and can sustain a range of injuries, including:

  • Head injuries
  • Lacerations
  • Amputation
  • Eye or facial injuries
  • Paralysis
  • Spinal cord injuries
  • Whiplash
  • Soft tissue injuries
  • Internal injuries
  • Crushing injuries
  • Fractures

These injuries cause not only pain and suffering, but also financial distress in many cases. Treating these injuries can cost thousands of dollars or even tens of thousands of dollars. In some cases, passengers who sustain these types of injuries cannot return to work, so that they face income loss as well as considerable medical bills.

Seeking Compensation After a Traffic Collision

It is okay to seek compensation if you have been injured by someone who was driving the car in which you are a passenger. In fact, if you are a passenger who has been injured, it is advisable to seek legal redress if you qualify. Compensation can make the difference between being able to afford the best quality medical care and having to settle for less advanced treatment methods, generic medications, and other low-cost treatment options.

Seeking fair compensation also ensures that you do not have to make difficult decisions when paying for medical costs or everyday bills. For many plaintiffs, seeking fair compensation ensures that they don't have to feel financial distress or face eviction, bankruptcy, a ruined credit rating, and the many other risks associated with unexpected injuries and medical costs.

It is your right to seek legal compensation if you have been injured through someone's negligence and recklessness. Even if you're not sure whether you want to file a legal claim or negotiate your insurance offer, at least consult with a personal injury attorney to explore your options and to understand how much your injuries may end up costing.
