Auto Accident Statistics in Fort Lauderdale

Car Accidents in Ft. Lauderdale

South Florida has an undeniable reputation for bad drivers. Whether it’s drunk drivers, uninsured motorist, or people distracted by their phones, there is an endless supply of dangers on our roads. This fact is especially true in Fort Lauderdale, which ranks as the most dangerous city to live in in the nation, largely due to driving.

While the city is only home to approximately 165,000 residents, it is one of Florida’s most popular tourist destinations. Fort Lauderdale attracts roughly 12 million tourists every year, so naturally, the substantial influx of people unfamiliar with the roadways is bound to create thousands of accidents each year.

According to Florida’s Department of Highway Safety & Motor Vehicles, Broward County had the second highest number of reported car accidents in Florida with more than 41,000 crashes in 2015. In Fort Lauderdale alone there were more than 6,200 collisions with a high mortality rate of 22.39 deaths per every 100K people involved in a car accident.

Why Ft. Lauderdale is Dangerous for Drivers

While the number of car accidents in Ft. Lauderdale may seem low compared to other metropolitan cities, the crashes in Broward County are among the most fatal in the nation.  In the past five years, there’s been an average of 20 car related deaths on Ft. Lauderdale’s streets annually.

Some of the most dangerous intersections in Broward County include US1 & Atlantic Blvd (home to more than 6,000 collisions), Pines Blvd & South Flamingo Rd. (had more than 100 pedestrian fatalities during a five-year period), and A1A & Las Olas Blvd which had over 1K injury-related crashes in 2015.

Ft. Lauderdale’s roadways are dangerous for drivers for a few reasons including a substantial number tourist drivers. As previously mentioned, Fort Lauderdale is a vacation hub that attracts millions of international and domestic tourists who are unfamiliar with local roads. Even with advancements in GPS technology, many drivers still get lost, make poor driving decisions, and get into life-threatening car accidents. The city is also a favorite spring break location which unfortunately attracts young college students that drive while under the influence of drugs or alcohol.

Another leading source for car accidents in Ft. Lauderdale is its proximity to I-95. Interstate 95 runs through 15 east coast states, but according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, the Florida portion is the most dangerous due to its unusually high number of car accidents. I-95 is one of the busiest roadways in South Florida and runs through the heart of Fort Lauderdale. Thousands of accidents occur each year due to reckless driving, heavy traffic, and the constant presence of construction work.

Recovering Compensation After a Fort Lauderdale Car Accident

The auto accident statistic in Fort Lauderdale are shocking and emphasize the importance of understanding how to obtain financial compensation after a Florida car accident. If you or someone you love has sustained a severe or fatal injury due to another driver’s negligence, getting the money you need is key to a successful recovery.

Since Florida is a “No-Fault” state, after a car accident, drivers must file a claim with their insurance company regardless of which driver is liable for the crash. By law, all motorist must purchase a minimum of $10,000 in Personal Injury Protection (PIP) coverage. Your PIP benefits are intended to cover the cost of your medical bills and lost wages.

If your medical bills & lost wages exceed the $10K PIP limit or you have sustained a permanent injury in a Florida car accident, the law allows you to file a personal lawsuit to recover additional payment for your damages. Depending on your circumstances, you may be able to get reimbursed for any out-of-pocket expenses stemming from the accident, as well as pay for your pain and suffering.

A car accident can be the most stressful time for anyone. The best thing I could've done was call 1800 injured. They take care you from beginning to end. They handle all of the work of going through the claim process and making sure you get the medical treatment you need. Working with their lawyer was very helpful during this time. You won't regret it.

I must say that working with 1800-Injured was seamless during a stressful period. Both myself and my wife got into auto accidents within two months of each other and the service received ion both cases from this company is seciond to none. We felt completely at ease from the initial phone call, as they were recommended by someone else who too had a pleasant experience and at every stage in the process we were kept informed, the explanation of the process was thorough and the follow up was an indication that we were in great hands. Thank you for making what could have been a very unpleasant and stressful experience one that was seamless and stress free.

I was recently involved in a automotive accident. A car crashed into my car from behind and I was pushed forward and I hit the car in front of me. At that time I really didn't know what to do or who to call. I remember seeing an Ad for 1 800 Injured on my Instagram page. I called them and they were very informative and handled everything from A to Z. They set me up with a great lawyer and with the right doctors.

Hace unos cuantos meses tuve un accidente con mi novia en el highway, inmediatamente despues del accidente me comunique con 1-800 injured ya que un amigo me lo habia mencionado. Desde que hice la llamada estuvieron a mi disposicion 100%. Me mandaron a la clinica el mismo dia y me ofrecieron un driver de mi casa a la clinica ya que no podia manejar en esas circustancias. No solo eso, tambien me ofrecieron un exelente abogado que llego a mi casa el mismo dia del accidente. No puedo quejarme de su servicio, recibi un excelente tratamiento en la clinica durante 3 meses y en todas mis visitas el driver me llevaba y me traia a mi casa. Definitivamente ofrecen un excelente servicio y se preocupan por sus clientes. Si llegan a tener un accidente automovilistico no duden en contactar a 1-800 Injured!
