Brandon’s densely-packed neighborhoods cause congestion during weekday mornings and evenings when commuters cross the city to work in nearby Tampa. The commute to Tampa is about 20 minutes without heavy traffic, and much longer during rush hour.
Residents of Brandon become used to tourist traffic that travels along the Selmon Expressway. At times, certain areas can become somewhat congested with tourist traffic, including the roads that provide access points to Downtown Tampa near the arena.

Damages in a Brandon Car Accident Case
In a Florida car accident case, most injury victims will start the process of seeking financial compensation by filing an auto insurance claim through their own insurance company. Since Florida is an auto insurance no-fault state, injured vehicle occupants need to file a claim through their own insurer to seek personal injury protection (PIP) coverage. However, PIP coverage only provides up to $10,000 for an injury victim, which is often insufficient to cover losses.
When a person suffers a “serious injury” in a Brandon crash, Florida law may allow that person to file a lawsuit against the at-fault party. Once you file a lawsuit against the negligent driver, you may be eligible to receive two types of compensatory damages:
- Economic damages, which compensate you for direct financial losses like hospital bills and lost wages; and
- Non-economic damages, which compensate you for subjective losses like pain and suffering.
Depending upon the facts of the case, it may be possible to seek punitive damages. Under Florida law, punitive damages are only awarded when a plaintiff can prove that a defendant engaged in intentional misconduct or was grossly negligent.
