Car Accidents in Florida
Data collected by the Florida Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles shows that hundreds of thousands of motor vehicle accidents occur in the state each year. Many of these crashes can be attributed to some type of negligence that drivers engage in while behind the wheel.
We see many people hurt in accidents as a result of drivers who are speeding. Alternatively, we see many people harmed in accidents due to drivers who are overly cautious. It is important to know that driving a vehicle is a big responsibility, and drivers must act in a manner that is careful and considerate of others sharing the road.
When drivers fail to provide other motorists a duty of care, they can cause severe injury accidents that negatively affect the lives of those involved.
