Every single year, millions are involved in car accidents, which can cause serious injuries to drivers, passengers, and pedestrians. Car wrecks are already scary enough without having to worry about the financial, physical, and emotional injuries. You and your family may be experiencing additional hardship as a result of expensive car repairs, lost wages, and medical bills or insurance claim disputes.
If you, or a loved one, are among the nearly 200,000 people injured in Florida car accidents each year, you know firsthand how devastating an auto accident can be—no matter how “minor” it may have appeared.

Are you the victim of an impaired or distracted driver?
The car accident lawyers at John Bales Attorneys are skilled at determining whether the driver who caused your accident was under the influence, distracted, or driving recklessly.
Drunk or Drugged Driving
Impaired judgment, dulled reflexes, and slower reaction times behind the wheel are a toxic combination. A driver under the influence of alcohol or drugs—including certain over-the-counter or prescription medications—can seriously injure or kill other drivers.
Multitasking is not only ineffective behind the wheel … It’s dangerous. More than 1,100 injuries (and 9 deaths) occur each day as a result of distracted driving. Accidents caused by texting or talking have received media attention, but a driver can be distracted by any number of things, including changing the radio station, operating a GPS, and even by eating or drinking.

When considering the term “reckless driving,” many think about drivers running red lights or ignoring stop signs. In reality, reckless driving includes a variety of offenses that put other drivers in danger, including driving more than 15 mph over the speed limit and aggressive driving. These behaviors are all common causes of serious car accidents.
