Auto Accidents in Florida
Auto accidents in Florida can occur for many different reasons, but currently, the leading cause is distracted driving, specifically texting and driving. This dangerous and negligent driver behavior accounts for nearly a quarter of all car accidents in the Sunshine State. Unfortunately, about 94% of auto accidents in the US are the result of some form of driver negligence.
A traffic collision in Florida is estimated to take place approximately once every 84 seconds, or over 1,000 times per day. Yearly, the Sunshine State sees about 400,000 traffic accidents take place. Florida is ranked as one of the most dangerous states to travel through due to its high accident-fatality rate. However, Florida is one of the most highly-populated states in the nation, which directly correlates with its statistical values.
