We are Miami Beach car accident lawyers and have been representing clients in Miami Beach, Florida since 1970. There are many potential causes of car, auto and motor vehicle accidents within the Miami Beach and South Beach area, but unfortunately one of the primary causes of traffic collisions are drivers operating their vehicles while intoxicated. The Florida traffic crash facts for the year 2011 indicate that 197 of the traffic accidents in Miami Beach involved an intoxicated driver. Throughout Miami-Dade County, drunk drivers also put themselves and others in danger. Of the 248 deaths in the county, 58 involved a driver who was impaired by drugs or alcohol.

In addition to driving while impaired, other top causes of auto accidents in Miami Beach and South Beach, included risky behaviors such as operating a cell phone while driving; driving while fatigued; going too fast for road conditions or for the posted speed limit; or engaging in aggressive driving by tailgating or speeding. If any driver does anything wrong or negligent that is more careless than what a reasonable motorist would do and/or that violates state laws, the irresponsible driver can be held accountable for compensating seriously injured victims or family members of those killed in motor-vehicle accidents.

The warm weather, the relatively low cost of living compared with other coastal communities, and the low taxes all make the state of Florida a very attractive place to retire. Florida is also popular among spring breakers as well as snowbirds who just live in the state for the winter months.

While there are many great areas to live or visit in Florida, one of the most vibrant, famous and exciting places is Miami Beach. Located within Miami-Dade County, Miami Beach is on a series of barrier islands that stretch between Biscayne Bay and the Atlantic Ocean.

A big shout out to Nick Gerson & Schwartz for helping me navigate my care after a fall against a major cruise ship. They took care of me all along the way and saw me through such a very hard time. I highly recommend their firm if you are looking for a firm that truly cares about you. 5 Stars all the way! Janna Wright, Google User
Mr Nick Gerson has been extremely attentive (even on weekends!) and has been more than willing to take time to answer all my questions. His receptionist (Suzanne) and paralegal (Carla) are courteous, friendly and highly efficient in all matters. Mr Gerson's diligence lead to a very quick resolution of my case. I am more than pleased to recommend you seek him as your attorney. You will not regret you did!! G.I.B.
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
