Florida Keys Car Accidents

The Florida Keys are an archipelago off Florida’s southern coast. There are technically 1,700 islands in the Florida Keys, though they are not all inhabited. They are divided into the Upper Keys, which are closest to Miami. A portion of the Upper Keys are part of the Biscayne National Park. Some of the most popular Upper Keys are Boca Chica Island, Key Largo, and the keys of Islamorada. There are the Middle Keys next, which include the Marathon Islands. The Lower Keys are those furthest from Miami and include the famed Key West.

In order to island hop, several highways have been built connecting many of the Keys. Seven Mile Bridge connects the Middle Keys to the Lower Keys. It is one of the longest bridges in the world, and it is part of the Overseas Highway, also known as U.S. Highway 1. If you get on Highway 1 in mainland Florida, hit Key Largo, and then travel all the way down to Key West.

This stretch of highway is beautiful, but it is also known for its accidents. Seven Mile Bridge and other sections of the Overseas Highway have experienced many head-one crashes and other types of collisions. If you are injured in a crash on the bridge or Highway 1, do not hesitate to call a car accident lawyer for the Florida Keys.

Our Florida Keys Car Accident Attorneys Will Fight for Your Compensation

Whether you live in the Florida Keys and were involved in an accident, or you were in a crash while visiting the Keys, Gerson & Schwartz P.A. is here to help. You should not be responsible for a crash caused by another negligent driver. You already have to deal with the physical and emotional repercussions of their carelessness. You should not bear the financial burden as well.

By working with our attorneys, you have someone to fight for you and your right to compensation. To begin with, we will conduct a thorough investigation of the collision. We will gather as much evidence as possible, including the police report, photos, video, eye witness statements, and physical evidence. Depending on the circumstances, we may hire an expert witness, such as an accident reconstructionist, to help prove who caused the crash. When we are confident regarding who is at fault and liable, we will guide you in an insurance claim process and possibly a lawsuit. Most car accident claims are resolved through an insurance settlement, though it may be necessary to go to court.

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. I have appreciation for the good service that was given to me and my situation. Thanks. Cales & Mr. Hyde (Carlos Andrés García Jiménez), Google User
