Florida Auto Accidents
Florida is the second worst state in the nation for distracted driving. Throughout the Sunshine State, approximately 50,000 auto accidents occur per year related to distracted driving. Every day, distracted drivers cause 137 traffic accidents.
A car crash can alter your life in a lot of different ways. Due to reoccurring issues, vehicle repairs, medical care costs, and more, even minor crashes can take a financial toll. In terms of the costs and stress involved, the consequences of an auto accident can quickly escalate to being unmanageable. If you get in a car accident, sustain injuries, and do not hire a lawyer to help you pay for the aftermath, you may run into financial issues that you cannot conquer on your own.
The majority of the car crashes reported in Florida and throughout the United States are caused by negligent driving. Negligent driving causes more car wrecks than vehicle malfunctions and bad weather combined. Distracted driving alone causes more than 400,000 vehicle collisions per year. When you’re injured by the actions of a negligent driver, you are entitled to significant financial compensation for the losses and damages you endure. Your injuries could cost you a fortune in medical costs, reaching the tens of thousands or more.
