Car Accidents in Florida
Florida is no stranger to auto accidents. More than 1,100 vehicle collisions take place across our state every single day. Although the majority of these accidents result only in property damages, numerous people are left injured. In fact, every year more than 150,000 people are injured in traffic-related incidents across the state of Florida. Although many accidents result in bumps, bruises, and cuts, there are numerous accidents that result in severe injuries to the brain, spinal cord, and neck. Regrettably, more than 3,100 people end up passing away each year as a result of their injuries.
Pedestrians who are involved in accidents are at a heightened risk of being fatally injured due to the fact that they do not have anything protecting them.
