Dangers on Bradenton Roads

With its beaches, art scene, and thriving nightlife, Bradenton roads are busy with local and out-of-town traffic around the clock. Bradenton is also home to many dangerous roads and intersections, including a span of US-41 that was rated one of the deadliest stretches of road just a few years ago. In 2022 alone, 23 traffic fatalities occurred on this roadway, and each mile saw an average of 4.7 accidents.

If an accident is due to negligence, the injured have the right to pursue compensation for their losses. You need a knowledgeable legal team to investigate the cause and determine liable parties. Some of the most common causes of car accidents in Bradenton and throughout Florida include the following:

  • Distracted driving: Texting while driving is dangerous, but distracted driving takes many forms. Careless drivers eat, apply makeup, and even watch movies while behind the wheel, risking other lives.
  • Drunk driving: A drunk driving case may open additional avenues of compensation to the injured, including punitive damages and filing suit against an establishment that served alcohol to an already incapacitated patron who then gets behind the wheel of a car and causes a deadly accident.
  • Driving violations: Police reports can play an essential role in a car accident injury case, especially if the at-fault driver has a history of speeding, reckless driving, road rage, or other unlawful conduct.
  • Inclement weather: Drivers who fail to take reasonable precautions and adjust their speed for prevailing weather, such as a severe storm.
  • Faulty auto parts: Negligence on the part of auto manufacturers can also lead to traffic accidents, especially when they release cars with faulty brakes, steering, and other defective systems into the marketplace.

Whether one of the above factors or some other form of negligence caused your accident, a Bradenton personal injury lawyer at our firm will work tenaciously to uncover all relevant facts and evidence.

Things You Can Do to Help Your Claim

A good attorney will handle all aspects of your car accident claim, but there are a few things you can do to improve your chances of success, and they include the following:

  • Obtain medical treatment: You must see a healthcare provider immediately after the accident. Medical evidence that can help a car accident victim includes a record of adherence to treatment plans, diagnostic test results such as MRIs and CAT scans, doctor’s notes, and other documentation.
  • Gather evidence: Obtain as much evidence from the accident scene as possible, including photos of injuries, damage to your car, skid marks, and the contact information of potential eyewitnesses.
  • Act on time: The statute of limitations for personal injury claims in Florida is generally two years. If you let this deadline pass, you will miss your chance to obtain compensation.
  • Confer with your lawyer: Representatives from the at-fault driver’s insurance company may try to contact you. Anything you say to them can be used to limit or deny your compensation. Talk to your lawyer first to ensure you take the right steps.

Building a solid car accident claim with concrete evidence will be handled by an experienced Bradenton car accident lawyer. However, keeping these tips in mind can help your chances of obtaining a favorable outcome.

What Can the Law Do for You?

By filing a personal injury claim with your lawyer against the at-fault driver or other liable party, you can give yourself a chance to recover compensation for economic and non-economic damages, such as pain and suffering. The compensation you receive could address the needs you face today and those you will continue to meet in the future. Depending on the nature and severity of your injury, these needs may include ongoing treatment, medications, adaptations to your living quarters, and rehabilitative therapy. If your injury keeps you out of work long-term, your compensation could also include lost wages and future lost wages.
