Weston Car Accident Lawyer
South Florida is home to many suburbs in Broward and Miami-Dade County. The suburbs of South Florida provide a quieter and often less-costly environment than living in a city center.

In fact, Weston is bordered on its western side by the Everglades.

Weston is a desirable place to live for many reasons, including its balmy tropical climate, its proximity to the parks in the Everglades and its numerous public outdoor spaces, including Tequesta Trace Park, Vista Park and Weston Regional Park. The city is 26.28 square miles and is bordered by David, Sunrise and Southwest Ranches. It is served by Interstate 75 and US Highway 27, along with other major roads and local roadways.
For drivers on any of the roads in Weston or in surrounding Broward County, it is important to exercise reasonable care and caution behind the wheel to prevent a crash from happening. In 2011 there were a total of 23,210 car accidents in Broward that caused 160 deaths and 30 pedestrian fatalities. In Weston, there were 289 accidents. The 20,000+ wrecks in the county account for a significant portion of the 227,998 car accidents that the Florida traffic crash statistics indicate occurred statewide that year.
Unfortunately, no matter how careful you are, you could still be hurt if another Weston driver does something unreasonable or dangerous. For example, 10 of the accidents that happened in Weston in 2011 were described in the traffic crash facts as involving alcohol. In Broward, 49 of the deaths that happened over the year occurred in crashes where alcohol likely played a role. A drunk driver is much more likely to crash his vehicle, hurting himself and others in the process. There is little a motorist can do to protect himself from the erratic behavior of a drunk driver and that means everyone is at risk.
If a driver does something illegal or unreasonably careless, however, motorists do have the right to pursue a claim for monetary compensation. A Weston car accident lawyer at Gerson & Schwartz, P.A. can assist injured victims in understanding when a driver’s actions could make him liable for covering costs and injuries.
