Miami Car Accident Attorney
Viñas & DeLuca handles all forms of motor vehicle accidents, including those involving pedestrians, motorcycles, buses, tractor-trailers, and commercial vehicles. These accidents cause thousands of injuries and deaths each year.
According to the U.S. Department of Transportation National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), in 2010 there were 32,885 traffic fatalities and an estimated 5,419,000 police-reported motor vehicle traffic crashes, nearly half of which resulted in injury. NHTSA also reported in 2010 that an average of 90 people die each day in traffic crashes. 1 every 16 minutes.
If you or a loved one were involved in a motor vehicle accident, waiting to call an attorney will not help your case. But, it might seriously impair your ability to prevail in a lawsuit. The sooner you contact us, the sooner we can investigate your case and begin preserving and analyzing critical evidence. As time passes, accident scenes change, eye-witness accounts waver, vehicles are salvaged, tire marks disappear, “black box” and electronically stored data may be erased, and other important evidence might become hard to obtain. Serious collisions often result in vehicles being salvaged because they are a “total loss.”
If contacted in time, our law firm will obtain and store the vehicles involved in your crash so that forensic engineers can photograph, measure, and analyze accident scenes, vehicular crash damage, tire marks, tread depth and paint transfers – all of which may be crucial to presenting and winning your case at trial.
Negligence on the road endangers us all. Despite considerable advances in federal motor vehicle safety standards, motor vehicle negligence – such as speeding, texting while driving, distracted driving, intoxication, and fatigue – continues to cause needless injury and death each day. Based on hand-held cell phone use rates in 2008, NHTSA estimates that there are 812,000 vehicles being driven by someone using a hand-held cell phone at any given time.
“In 2008, 5,870 people lost their lives and an estimated 515,000 people were injured in police-reported crashes in which at least one form of driver distraction was reported on the crash report. While these numbers are significant, they may not state the true size of the problem, since the identification of distraction and its role in the crash by law enforcement can be very difficult.” – An Examination of Driver Distraction As Recorded in NHTSA Databases, September 2009.
That was 2008. Today, more and more people use cell phones while driving as those devices are capable of performing more and more functions. They are no longer limited to just calling, texting, and e-mailing.
We understand that automobile accidents can have a devastating impact on your life. Even low-speed collision can cause long life-altering injury and lead to extensive medical care and medical bills.
