More About Coral Gables

Coral Gables is located in Miami-Dade County and 2012 estimates from the Nielsen Company indicate that the city had a population of 47,401. The University of Miami is located in Coral Gables, and the suburb was one of the first planned communities. Unfortunately, despite the strict zoning regulations for which the city is famous, there has not been the same emphasis on traffic safety and improved infrastructure. If you or a loved one has sustained a serious or catastrophic injury in a car wreck, an experienced Coral Gables accident attorney at Gerson & Schwartz, P.A. can assist you in understanding your legal rights under Florida law.

As the home of the University of Miami, it should come as no surprise that there are many bars, restaurants and shopping areas in Coral Gables. However, due to the strict zoning regulations in the area, the downtown commercial district was designed to be just four blocks wide. This district, in excess of two miles long, is served by a free circular trolley system that was installed in 2003. Despite the presence of the trolley, however, there are still dangerous drivers on the road in Coral Gables and throughout the rest of the surrounding areas of Miami-Dade.

In fact, countywide, there were a total of 42,171 accidents and in Coral Gables alone, 1,295 traffic serious crashes were reported in 2011. The Miami-Dade traffic accidents caused a total of 248 people to lose their lives.

The thousands of area accidents happened for a lot of different reasons, including drivers making the dangerous decision to get behind the wheel while intoxicated. A total of 58 of the fatalities in Miami-Dade County involved alcohol, and 57 of the wrecks that occurred in Coral Gables in 2011 were alcohol-related.

When a motorist makes the decision to drive drunk or engage in other high-risk behavior behind the wheel, he endangers himself and others. If the motorist causes serious injury or death, then the motorist can be sued and made to compensate victims. Serious injuries in motor vehicle accident cases our firm also has direct experience includes:

Mr. Gerson and all his team gave to my case the careful and professional attention it needed from the beginning to end. Unfortunately, a year ago I was involved in a car accident on the victim side.
