North Miami Beach Poor Road Design
According to the Transportation Construction Coalition and the Pacific Institute for Research and Evaluation, about half of the fatalities occurring on US highways are caused at least in part by poor roadway conditions. According to the study, about 5.3 million accidents across the country each year are links to poor road conditions and these sorts of poor conditions are a factor in 38% of injuries that don't lead to a fatality. This means that according to the study, unsafe road conditions can be more dangerous for drivers then distracted driving, speeding or drunk driving in North Miami Beach and other communities.

Roads that are incorrectly maintained, faultily designed, or poorly built are very expensive and dangerous for entire communities. According to a study by the Transportation Construction Coalition and the Pacific Institute for Research and Evaluation, car accidents caused by faulty roadways cost the country $36 billion in productivity costs each year, as well as $20 billion in medical costs, $99 billion in quality of life costs, and $52 billion in property damage. Those who are injured in these types of accidents can face many expenses, including:
- Medical bills
- Hospital bills
- Increases in insurance premiums
- Medical devices
- Medical treatment, such as physical therapy
- At home care or assisted living facility costs
- Lost income
- Incidental costs
- Property damage
- Car repair and car replacement costs
If you are injured in a severe traffic accident in North Miami Beach or your community, how will you pay for these costs? Do you have enough assets and savings to pay for potentially tens of thousands of dollars of medical expenses and car repair costs out-of-pocket?
The reality is that even if you have excellent insurance and medical coverage, your insurance company may end up undervaluing your claim or may claim that some of your expenses are not covered. You could be left having to pay tens of thousands of dollars or even more out-of-pocket for your injuries. If your injuries were caused through no fault of your own, you should not have to pay for these costs yourself. Consult with a personal injury attorney to review your options for fair compensation.
