Florida High-Speed Collisions
Drivers who speed are more likely to lose control of their vehicles, potentially resulting in serious accidents. In the United States, 9,378 people were killed in high-speed collisions in 2018. With nearly 25 people killed every day as a result of speeding drivers, speeding is one of the most common causes of fatal car accidents. High-speed collisions, according to statistics, are more likely to result in catastrophic injuries. Over the last two decades, speeding has been blamed for one-third of all road deaths in the United States.
Car accidents are the leading cause of death and serious injury in the United States, with more fatal collisions occurring each year. Your chances of suffering serious injuries in a collision are higher than you might think. Victims of non-fatal collisions can sustain life-altering injuries, leaving them with mounting medical bills and no way to pay them. Innocent victims may be quickly overwhelmed by this difficult financial and emotional situation. It’s critical to get the compensation you need after a serious car accident, which is why injured parties should speak with a qualified Clearwater car accident attorney to improve their chances of a successful personal injury claim.
