In fact, in the past three years, the number of total accidents and injuries has increased in Lake, Marion, and Sumter Counties, as shown in the following chart.
Unfortunately, the number of fatalities per year has also increased in the Ocala area (Marion County), from 55 in 2014, to 73 in 2016. So far in 2017, 24 people have been killed in traffic accidents across Marion, Lake, and Sumter Counties.
If You’ve Been Injured in a Car Accident
If you’ve been injured in a car accident in The Villages, Ocala, or the surrounding area, you may be relying on your insurance to cover your expenses. Sad to say, the Personal Injury Protection (PIP) insurance you have might pay only 80% of your medical bills and 60% of any wages you lose due to the accident.
At the Glover Law Firm, we’ve found that the financial compensation paid by Personal Injury Protection insurance generally isn’t enough to cover expenses for people injured in car accidents. You could be suffering from your injuries and loss and have to worry about mounting medical expenses.
We want to help you get the full compensation you need to pay for your losses. This includes present and future medical expenses, lost wages, lost earning capacity, pain, and suffering.
