Auto Accidents in Florida
Each year, there are approximately 3,000 people killed in Florida car accidents. This number places our state among the most dangerous places in the nation for motorists. Sadly, many of these accident victims will lose their lives in crashes that are not their fault. The overwhelming majority of car accidents in Florida are caused by the actions of negligent drivers. These accidents are caused by drivers who are speeding, distracted, impaired, or otherwise driving in a reckless manner. The cause of each crash must be carefully investigated in order to determine the cause and who should be held responsible.
