Florida Car Accidents
Car accidents are not an uncommon occurrence in Florida, happening hundreds of thousands of times per year. On average, more than 400,000 vehicle collisions are reported in the state of Florida annually. Over 150,000 people are hurt in these accidents while more than 3,000 lose their lives.
Florida car accidents happen for a multitude of different reasons. The main reasons auto accidents in Florida happen, currently, are speeding and distracted driving, specifically texting and driving. Drivers who choose to text and drive think it’s okay to look at their phones instead of the roadway when they’re behind the wheels of moving vehicles. This is never a safe decision to make. Looking at the phone screen for just five seconds is the same as driving the length of an entire football field with your eyes closed. This can put you and those around you at serious risk for severe injuries or even death.
If you or someone you love has been hurt in an accident caused by a negligent driver, you should contact a car crash lawyer as soon as you can.
