Although we all depend on our cars to get from Point A to Point B, how you drive is much more important than where you drive. Over the years, numerous studies and surveys have been conducted to determine which cities in the Sunshine State are most dangerous for drivers. Allstate Insurance Company conducts one of the most comprehensive annual reviews of driving statistics. While Miami ranks 9th in the nation, Hialeah ranks an astounding third in the nation. But, why is Miami-Dade County a magnet for accidents?
The statistics are extreme. According to the Allstate study, the average driver will be involved in a car accident in Miami every 7.8 years, which is a 28.2 percent higher than the national average. The statistics are not much better in Broward County. Residents in the 954 have a 27.1 percent better chance of getting into a car accident than the national average. Here are some of the contributing factors:
You do not have to look at statistics to know Miami ranks high for car accidents. Keep in mind, the Allstate statistics only apply to the company’s policyholders. Unfortunately, Miami also has many uninsured drivers that are not counted in those same statistics. If you have been involved in a car accident in Miami, it is important to have an experienced car accident attorney that can help you get the maximum settlement to cover your damages, losses along with your pain and suffering.
