Fatal Car Crashes in Florida
Automobile accidents are a major issue in the US. Traffic accidents are still a major issue in Florida. Over 30,000 people pass away in traffic accidents on American roads each year, making them one of the main causes of mortality in the country, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). In Florida last year, there were 2,915 traffic accidents that resulted in 3,133 fatalities.
Nothing will ever be able to make up for the damage a family member endured as a result of someone else’s carelessness or poor behavior. Your life has undergone a huge change, and it might never be the same again. It’s crucial to hold the offender responsible. Even though it could be challenging to move on after a loss, Florida only gives you a limited amount of time to file a claim against the at-fault party. Once that time period has passed, all rights are forfeited. You don’t have to experience this alone.
