Florida injury statistics illustrate the dangers
In Florida, unintentional injuries are the leading cause of death among residents under 45 years of age and are the third leading cause of death overall. The fatality rate for unintentional injuries in Florida is 55.92 per 100,000 residents. These numbers break down as follows: per 100,000 people, motorcycle fatalities afflict 14.7 people, pedestrian fatalities affect 3.06 people, and cyclists account for 0.63 deaths. Drownings most often affect youngsters, aged newborn to nine, at a rate of 3.36 per 100,000. Finally, a significant source of injury to the elderly is accidental falls. In residents aged 65 and up, falls have a fatality rate of 66.75 per 100,000.
However, sustaining an injury does not necessarily entitle you to compensation. You must prove someone was at fault for causing your injury. That generally requires the skill of an experienced personal injury lawyer.
Contingency representation with no out-of-pocket expense
Sessums Law Group represents personal injury clients on a contingency basis, which means the fee and all costs are payable only upon the successful outcome and recovery of the case. The firm offers free initial consultations to clients.
