Florida Auto Crashes
Car wrecks are a top cause of serious injuries and death in the United States and throughout the state of Florida. Florida sees more auto accidents than most other states in the nation, with over 400,000 car crashes reported per year. In 2018, over 3,100 people lost their lives in Florida car accidents. Florida has one of the highest fatality rates in the nation related to auto accidents with almost 15 deaths per 100,000 people.
Car wrecks happen all the time in the Sunshine State. Traffic accidents can involve all different types of vehicles, including bikes, motorcycles, cars, lorries, trucks, vans, pedestrians, and more. When drivers choose to act negligently while behind the wheel, they put themselves and everyone around them at serious risk for injuries or even death.
Negligent drivers are often fined for their behavior when they are caught by police. Fines can reach hundreds of thousands of dollars and they may be forced to spend time in jail due to their actions. When you or someone you love is hurt in a car wreck caused by driver negligence, you deserve to be compensated for the losses and damages you face in relation to your wreck.
