Are you the victim of a reckless driving incident in or around Fort Myers, Florida? If so, you may be entitled to seek compensation. The Florida Law Group’s Fort Myers reckless driving accident injury lawyers can help you do just that. 

In 2021, Florida had 6,880 reckless driving incidents, which was a 21.5% increase from the years prior. Most reckless driving incidents are caused by distractions like texting, talking on the phone, changing the music or something else. They can also be caused by drivers who are impaired or under the influence of drugs and alcohol. No matter the cause, when you are the victim of someone else’s negligence, and in this case, recklessness, you shouldn’t be held responsible for the costs that this type of accident can result in. 

When you’re the victim of a reckless driving related crash, you may endure injuries like paralysis, brain or head injury, burns and more. Depending on the severity of such injuries, you may require extensive medical attention. Medical services can rack up hefty bills, putting a financial burden on top of the physical burdens you’ve already taken on. The types of costs you could be left responsible for may include, but are not limited to, the following:

  • Hospital/ER stay
  • Medical bills
  • Medication
  • CT scans, MRIs, X-rays
  • Surgeries
  • Physical Therapy
  • Body casts/wheelchairs 
  • And more!

You may also have to take time off of work because of your injuries, which can cause additional financial stress. On top of tangible medical costs, accidents can cause a lot of emotional trauma and pain for victims, requiring psychological therapy or counseling. You don’t deserve for this accident to alter your entire life! However, there is a time limit on taking legal action against reckless drivers. It is important that you contact a Fort Myers reckless driving accident injury lawyer who can fight aggressively to get you fair compensation. Don’t let insurance companies who are trying to save a dime devalue what your injuries are worth with their lowball offers or deny you compensation altogether!
