Florida Auto Accidents
Each year in the US, millions of vehicle accidents take place. Approximately 6 million car wrecks occur every year throughout the nation. Around 3 million people sustain injuries every single year due to these collisions. Sadly, nearly 40,000 people lose their lives each year. In Florida alone, over 400,000 car wrecks happen per year that cause injuries to more than 100,000 people. Over 3,000 people lose their lives in Florida car accidents annually.
When you or a loved one has been seriously hurt in a car wreck, it is important to be able to determine how or why the incident occurred, especially if you know it was someone else’s fault. Drivers who act negligently cause millions of vehicle wrecks every year in the United States. Right now, driver distraction causes more auto accidents than any other type of driver negligence. This is most likely due to the rising popularity of smartphones.
If you determine that you did not cause your wreck, but another person did, or even if you may have partially caused the accident you were injured in, you may be eligible to collect significant financial compensation that can help you pay for the majority of the costs related to your accident.
Wage loss, vehicle repairs, medical bills, and more may be able to be compensated for if you file a personal injury claim with a lawyer.
