Car Crashes in Florida
A car accident occurs in Florida once every 84 seconds or over 1,000 times per day. Every year, over 3,000 individuals lose their lives in Florida car accidents, and Florida has one of the highest accident rates in the nation.
Serious injuries or even death may result from a car accident. Some of the most common causes of car accidents in Florida are distracted driving, intoxication, and speeding, which are all forms of driver negligence. It was recently reported that approximately 94% of the traffic accidents in the United States can be attributed to some form of driver negligence.
In the event that you or someone you love has been injured in an accident caused by another person’s negligence, it is imperative that you contact a Florida personal injury attorney to discuss your legal rights and options moving forward.

A Florida car accident attorney will inform you of your existing legal rights toward compensation in the event that you or someone you love has been injured in a negligently caused traffic crash. Driver negligence is defined as the occasion where a driver fails to utilize reasonable care while operating a motor vehicle, which can lead to personal injuries/death. If you believe that you or a loved one may have been subjected to another person’s carelessness while behind the wheel, you could be entitled to significant financial compensation. Compensation can cover things like outstanding medical bills, pain and suffering, loss of consortium, punitive damages, among other accident-related costs depending on the circumstances of your wreck.
