About 15 miles northwest of Fort Lauderdale and east of Pompano Beach, Margate is located in the middle of Broward County. A community of about 55,000 people, Margate is an appealing city for commuters, offering convenient access to Florida’s Turnpike and to Interstate 95. Because its housing prices are more affordable than the options in some of the county’s larger cities, Margate offers desirable living for families and other residents who appreciate the more relaxed pace of life in a smaller city.

At Freeman Injury Law, our Margate car accident attorneys are known for their skills in helping local residents who have been hurt in traffic collisions. Although more accidents happen in Florida’s urban centers than in rural settings, our experienced personal injury lawyers take on cases that occur in smaller cities like Margate, as well as those that happen in more metropolitan areas.

Our years of experience in handling auto accident cases has taught our Margate personal injury lawyers that traffic crashes can leave many people with injuries that have long-lasting effects. We know that the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention confirm that motor vehicle accidents are the leading cause of fatal injuries among Americans in the 5 – 34 age group. In fact, accidents kill more than 18,000 of those young people every year. Margate car accident lawyers at our firm have successfully represented families who have lost loved ones to drunk or careless drivers, helping them gain the compensation they need to make house payments, buy groceries, and provide educations for their children.

The CDC explains that more than 29 million people across the U.S. need treatment for injuries every year, and that almost 3 million must be hospitalized. Traffic accidents account for more than 1 in 5 of those injuries. The Margate car accident lawyers at our firm know that accident-related injuries can necessitate expensive medical treatment. If your injuries are particularly severe, that expense may be ongoing. Car accidents are a leading cause of traumatic brain injuries, and they also can cause damage to the spinal cord, break multiple bones, and damage organs. Any of these injuries can mean long-term treatment and rehabilitation or even permanent disability.
