Car Crashes in Boynton Beach
A fatal traffic accident in Florida is estimated to take place approximately once every three hours. This averages out to nearly 9 people who lose their lives per day due to fatal Florida car accidents. Each year, on average, a total of approximately 3,000 individuals are killed due to auto collisions in Florida. Sadly, most of these incidences are caused by driver negligence.
Negligence while driving is an easily preventable mistake made by thousands if not millions of American drivers. This dangerous behavior causes a very large number of traffic accidents throughout the nation, as well as traffic fatalities. If you have lost a loved one due to the negligence of another person on the road, call a Florida wrongful death attorney as soon as possible to discuss your options for financial compensation.
The most prevalent cause for car accidents to occur in the Sunshine State, currently, is distracted driving, which is another form of negligent driving. The specific action that people most often choose to carry out while driving that puts them in the ‘distracted driving’ category is texting. Texting and driving accounts for nearly one-fourth of all of the car accidents that take place in Florida.
Some other common causes of car accidents in Florida are intoxication, fatigue, and speeding. One must always be alert, cautious, and sober when getting behind the wheel of a vehicle.
Being involved and injured in a Florida auto accident can bring unprecedented stress and pain into your life and into the lives of those you love. That pain can be exacerbated when you are under the impression that your accident and injuries were caused by another person’s negligence. For instance, if the other person involved in your collision was texting while driving, speeding, or intoxicated when the accident took place, they need to be held accountable for their negligent actions that ultimately caused your injuries. You are also eligible for significant financial compensation if involved and injured in a traffic accident caused by another person.
