Alan Sackrin Knows How Maximize Your Recovery
30 years of experienced representing clients in car accident cases
Car Accidents and motorvehicle crashes are responsible for over 3 million injuries a year and more than 2,000 deaths per year in Florida.
It is disheartening to know that auto accidents are responsible for an enormous amount of serious injuries and fatalities within the state of Florida. Even sadder is the fact that many of these accidents are preventable and only occur because a driver was negligent or reckless.
Why Alan Sackrin?

Alan is a Board Certified trial expert who for 30+ years has litigated car accident cases where the insurance company refuses to pay a fair settlement to the victim.

Additionally, Alan adds value to his clients because he will go to trial when the insurance company denies coverage or doesn't make a settlement offer that he believes is fair.

Florida Distracted Driving Accidents Are Causing Serious Injury and Death
Unfortunately today, car accidents are extremely common because drivers have more distractions than ever from things like portable electronics, tweeting, texting, emailing, Facebook© and Foursquare©. These new world distractions cause drivers to pay more attention to staying connected and less attention to driving their automobile.
Aside from cellphones and smartphones and Bluetooth, distracted driving can also involve drivers eating fast food in their cars while driving, as well as putting on make-up or changing the music selection or checking the GPS for directions.
In April 2012 a new study was released by the University of Washington confirming that some drivers get distracted and become dangerous on the road when they are merely anticipating getting calls or messages or texts while they are driving. For some, the study shows, even thinking they may get a call or a text means the risk of a crash on a Florida road increases.
Car Crash Data And Statistics
According to the Florida Department of Motor Vehicles, for example, in 2009 statewide there were 20,085 alcohol related traffic accidents resulting in 1,004 deaths and 14,130 injuries.
According to the National Highway Safety Traffic Administration, in 2008 there were 500,000 car crashes caused by distracted driving, and 6000 Americans died as a result.
It has been estimated that distracted driving is the cause of 20% of all motor vehicle accidents.
Damages from auto crashes total $150 billion annually because compensation for a car accident, in most cases, includes recovery of medical expenses, property damage, lost wages and lost earning potential, pain and suffering, disfigurement, loss of consortium and emotional distress.
