• Non-illuminated street lamps or stop lights
• Uneven lanes
• Poor drainage
• Hazard markers not in place, or installed in a non-visible location
• Poorly maintained roads
Many cities and counties, with subdivisions and mud-districts alike, sub-contract street maintenance duties. These acts can include making repairs or sweeping and removing debris from the road to allow for safe passage. The methods help keep property taxes manageable, but when the work is not of high-quality craftsmanship, conditions seem to go downhill and accidents happen. A vehicle's tire can become popped from the direct impact of a pothole. Drivers caught off guard by the sudden change can jerk the wheel, which causes some things to happen, including being involved in a crash with a pedestrian or car. Countless damages can be incurred by involved parties, including, but not limited to, head trauma, broken bones, cuts, bruises, or even wrongful deaths.
Individuals of the crash, and in some cases their families, are sometimes awarded compensation for these injuries. Sarasota County residents that believe their wounds were caused by another person or organization's negligence, carelessness, or recklessness should contact our accident attorney to see where their matter stands. The case review is free, and personal injury cases are paid on a contingency fee basis. This convenience means there are no upfront costs, and our clients can concentrate on the most critical aspect, which is reaching a full recovery.

Utilize The Camera On Your Smartphone To Document Accounts
It is safe to assume that most people have a camera on their cell phone, even if it is not a smartphone. Once everyone at the scene of an accident has been given first aid or medical assistance, don't hesitate to take pictures of the area. After all, burned out bulbs, downed trees, and other elements that caused the incident can become replaced and cleaned. However, a picture is worth a thousand words, and having the images to back up the claim, is very beneficial to the cause.
The legal system is not a get-rich-quick-scheme. Settlement amounts are determined by the severity of the damages, how they affect one's daily life and medical expenses. Pain and suffering is another factor, but plaintiffs must have an understanding that only fair compensation amounts will be awarded. Our accident attorney does everything in his power to get clients the monetary settlement that they justly deserve. He fights with your best interests, and only them, in mind. So, if you feel that you deserve compensation for injuries sustained from no fault of your own, please don't hesitate to contact our office today.
