Fort Lauderdale, Florida, December 31, 2012, –Attorney David I. Fuchs, who possesses a wide range of experience in the personal injury field, provides legal advice to those who have been the victims of auto accidents. Although Attorney Fuchs handles cases dealing with a wide range of personal injury mishaps, including slip and slide accidents, dog bite cases and work-related injuries, the area of auto accidents keeps him especially busy.

Attorney Fuchs commented, “Those who are victims of auto accidents are often overwhelmed by what happened to them. A vehicle accident can totally change someone’s life if that person becomes disabled or impaired. Time spent in hospitals and rehab lost wages and medical expenses and pain and suffering all take their toll. Someone who has been injured in an auto accident due to negligence needs a professional to ensure their rights will be protected and they’ll receive a fair and just settlement.”

In Florida, there are 15.5 million licensed drivers and more than 14.8 million registered vehicles. In 2012, there were 235,000 automobile accidents resulting in over 195,000 injuries. Of those injuries, 2,444 were fatal injuries. Each year vehicle mishaps are responsible for almost 30% of all non-intentional accidental deaths in the state of Florida. Car accidents are the leading cause of death for those under 35 years of age.

According to Fuchs, the number of cases involving negligence is alarming, as he noted, “Crash reports from the Florida Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles reveal that over 50% of accidents in Florida are caused by drivers who operated their motor vehicle carelessly or negligently.” The attorney added, “Plus, others are caused by drivers who fail to yield the right-of-way, speed, improperly change lanes, run red lights, and so on. That means that most accidents are caused by driver carelessness. The result is that auto accident victims are injured in collisions through no fault of their own.”
