Florida Car Crashes
Florida is among the top three states in the nation with the most auto accidents reported per year. Over 400,000 vehicle collisions are reported per year in Florida. Of these collisions, approximately 150,000 people are hurt annually and about 3,200 lose their lives. Unfortunately, driver negligence is the leading type of auto accident in the United States and throughout the state of Florida. At this time, driver distraction is the leading cause of auto collisions in Florida and throughout the United States.
Common examples of reckless, careless, or negligent driving include:
- Speeding and/or intoxication
In 2019, more than 400,000 car wrecks were caused by negligent drivers in the United States. Drivers who decide to look at their phones, talk to the people in their cars, or pay attention to anything else other than the road in front of them put themselves and everyone around them at risk for severe injuries or even death.
When you or someone you love has been hurt in a car accident caused by a negligent driver, it is important to understand your legal rights and options. In the United States, driver negligence is illegal and has become a severe problem that injures millions of people per year.
Due to their thoughtless and irresponsible behavior, negligent drivers usually have to pay fines and may even be put in jail. Those who are hurt due to the actions of negligent drivers are eligible to collect financial compensation for their damages. Car crash attorneys can help injured crash victims recover compensation so they can get their lives back on track after being hurt in auto accidents.
