You’ve probably passed them on the road: accidents involving multiple vehicles and multiple drivers. These accidents can happen on Florida streets for a number of reasons.

Another common way back injuries happen when you’re thrown around inside the vehicle. The sudden, sharp movements can cause serious trauma. So can hitting solid surfaces, such as the dashboard or the roof. Think of it this way: however fast the vehicle is travelling when you’re in the accident, your body can continue to move until it’s snapped back by your seatbelt or until you crash into a surface.

If you’ve been in a car crash in South Florida, you might already know you need to see a doctor. You may be experiencing pain or have suffered an obvious injury. Or, perhaps you’ve been lucky enough to walk away from the crash.

Your car, too, needs to be checked out. Even if the car seems to be handling fine after your collision, there may be damage.

I had a lawyer on another case and I never spoke to the lawyer and I hated that I never knew what was going on in my case.
