The town of Davie is home to some of the largest commuter college campuses in the state, including Broward College, Florida Atlantic University, and Nova Southeastern University. Thousands of students travel to Davie’s college campuses in the fall and spring when classes are in session. In addition to its higher learning facilities, local public schools and trade schools are located around the campus, bringing additional bus, pedestrian, and vehicle traffic to the roads, as well as frequent speed limit changes.
Highly-travelled roads, such as I-595, the Turnpike, State Road 84, and University Drive pose additional hazards to students due to their fast pace and large traffic volume. Given the high volume of traffic on the roads of Davie every day, there is an increased chance of car accidents. Car crashes can result in minor injuries such as bruises, scrapes, burns, broken bones, or cuts. Serious injuries may include injuries to the neck, back, or spine. When a person receives a strong blow to the head, such as when it hits a steering wheel or window, they may experience a traumatic brain injury. These injuries can range from minor concussions, hemorrhaging, skull fractures, or torn brain tissue.
If you or someone in your family has experienced a blow to the head as a result of a car accident, seek medical attention immediately. Symptoms from brain injuries may not be apparent for a few hours or even a few days after the accident. Getting treatment as soon as possible can help to keep a minor injury from becoming more serious, as well as get you on the track to recovery if the injury is severe. If you or member of your family has been involved in an accident that was not your fault, call the Davie head injury attorneys at Wolfson & Leon. Our personal injury attorneys will review your claim free of charge and advise you of your options. They can help you to build a case and will defend your rights when negotiating with insurance companies or legal teams.
