Insurance Premiums on the Rise — Auto Accident Attorney in Tampa FL
When involved in a car accident, one of the tried-and-true ways to ensure compensation for the injury is through legal representation from an experienced auto accident attorney in Tampa FL. However, recent changes in the economic climate have further complicated matters related to automobile accidents. As the economy continues to regain strength, involvement in a car crash has become even more costly. As the financial crisis took hold, American drivers began to drive less. Now, the economy is picking back up, leading to a reversal of this trend; more people can afford to drive their cars, which leads to more miles driven, therein leading to more auto accidents. Beyond the already-looming risk of losing the ability to work, accumulation of expensive medical bills, and suffering serious injury (or worse, death), being involved in a car or truck accident has become more costly than ever. Fortunately, Tampa truck accident lawyer can help you claim the compensation you need to put your injury in the past so that you can focus on what truly matters.
Allstate Corporation, one of the largest auto insurance companies in the country, reported about a month ago that their second-quarter earnings have been heavily and negatively affected by the recovering economy due in part to the higher frequency at which people are now driving along with the increased intricacy of modern vehicles, which has led many insurance companies to consider raising insurance premiums in order to make up for such losses. This increase in premiums will affect all insured drivers, though drivers who find themselves involved in a car accident are likely to be hit the hardest by premium rate increases. When auto accidents often result in serious injuries that require expensive medical treatment, odds are that anyone dealing with the aftermath of a car accident has enough financial worries looming overhead.
Causes of Truck Accidents — Tampa Truck Accident Lawyer
If your accident involved a large truck, a Tampa truck accident lawyer is prepared to represent your case in order to help you receive the compensation you deserve. Despite the high risk of bodily injury involved in car accidents, truck accidents are often even more devastating than a typical auto accident. Most commercial trucks weigh as much as multiple passenger cars at the very least. Some trucks can weigh as much as 10,000 lbs or more, turning a large truck into a motorized sledgehammer when involved in an accident at higher speeds. Driver error is also a large contributor to truck accidents, whether on the part of the truck driver or other drivers involved. Beyond obvious problems such as truck driver fatigue caused by long hours spent on the road, many passenger vehicle drivers fail to realize just how much easier it is to drive a common passenger car than a commercial truck, such as a semi-truck. Large trucks are, of course, much more massive than a typical sedan, for instance. The increased size of commercial trucks leads to additional time required for acceleration and braking, significant blind spots, and a greater physical space requirement for turns. A car driver who fails to give a large truck proper space to maneuver risks causing a serious accident that could lead to dire injury to those involved. When driving near large trucks, automobile drivers should always take extra caution in order to avoid substantial medical debt, serious bodily injury, and the numerous other negative effects that result from car accidents that will likely require legal representation from an auto accident attorney in Tampa FL to properly resolve the situation.
