Fatal Car Accidents in Florida
Florida is a dangerous state for motorists. According to statistics, there were over 3,000 reported fatalities due to traffic crashes that took place in our state in 2019. A total of more than 400,000 crashes were reported with 250,000 injuries. These numbers illustrate the fact that a car accident in Florida is both common as well serious and potentially deadly. Victims who are injured in these crashes can find their lives turned upside down in a matter of minutes. In many cases, the injured victim was not at fault for the crash and instead was simply in the wrong place at the wrong time. The prevalence of negligent drivers on Florida’s roadways contributes heavily to the number of injury crashes that we see every day on our streets and highways.
