Florida Car Wrecks
In the United States, millions of auto collisions are reported every single year. About 6 million traffic collisions take place per year in our country which causes about 3 million people to become injured. Of these accidents, over 35,000 people lose their lives annually. In Florida, hundreds of thousands of car wrecks are reported per year that cause over 100,000 people to sustain serious injuries. Over 3,000 people are killed in Florida car crashes per year.
When you or someone you love has sustained injuries in a car accident, it is vital to figure out how/why the crash happened, especially if you believe it was not your fault. Negligent drivers cause millions of auto collisions per year in the United States. Currently, driver distraction is the leading cause of car crashes throughout the nation. This is most likely due to the rising popularity of smartphones.
