Aventura, Florida is located in Miami-Dade County and, as of the 2010 Census, had a population of 35,762 people. Well-known for Aventura Mall, the planned suburban community actually predates the famous attraction that has been built near its many condo developments. There are an estimated 14,000 households in the Aventura area, which has a high population of Jewish and Brazilian residents.
Those living in or visiting Aventura can take advantage of the Aventura Express shuttle bus to get around, which is free for residents. However, Aventura has been described as one of the most car-centric areas in all of Miami-Dade County. Unfortunately, this means that there is a high risk of auto accidents in the area for residents and visitors. If you or a loved one is involved in a traffic collision, an Aventura auto accident lawyer at Gerson & Schwartz, P.A. can help you to understand your legal rights.Aventura Car Accident Risks

Certain behaviors such as using a cell phone while operating a vehicle or driving while nodding off can more than double the risk of an auto accident. Speeding, text messaging, and miscalculating time, speed, and distances can result in serious accidents and injuries.
