Life does come at you fast, and no one gets through without experiencing their share of accidents. Risk is such a part of everyday living that we expect people to go about their daily activities with a certain amount of care and attention. People are supposed to pay attention when they drive their cars, trucks and motorcycles. We expect doctors and nurses avoid making medical mistakes. All of us want drug companies to make safe pharmaceuticals. We don’t expect businesses to manufacture defective products. Shopping centers should do what they have to prevent slip and fall injuries. But not everyone is careful all of the time. Accidents happen, and these accidents injure innocent people. If you’ve been hurt in an auto accident in Florida, you want the best Orlando car accident attorneys you can find.
When to Call an Orlando Personal Injury Attorney
All too often, careless, impaired or drunk drivers cause car accidents. Florida auto accidents kill thousands and injure tens of thousands every year. Drivers and passengers sustain often debilitating neck, back and spinal injuries. There are hundreds of cases of Traumatic Brain Injuries (TMI) from car accidents in Florida every year. Transportation companies push drivers to put in longer hours than they should. Sometimes Florida truckers don’t maintain semis and tractor trailers. The result is a weary, fatigued truck driver in a rig with worn brakes that slams into stalled traffic. Constant construction on I-4 makes driving in Central Florida dangerous, and there are more auto accidents on the Orlando section of I-4 than elsewhere in Florida. The Orlando car accident attorneys at Martinez Manglardi know the drill. The know that’s what’s best for you is what’s best for them.
Doctors make so many errors that medical malpractice is the third leading cause of death in America. OB/GYN doctors cause birth defects, cerebral palsy (CP) and other birth injuries by medical negligence during pregnancy and in delivery. Distractions cause bus drivers and train operators to get in accidents. Pharma companies don’t fully test drugs, and people die from taking dangerous prescription pharmaceuticals.
