Car Accidents in Florida
A car accident in Florida can have life-altering impacts on both victims as well as their families. According to statistics published by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, a reportable accident takes place in Florida about once every 92 seconds. These crashes can occur for a variety of reasons. Major highways such as Interstate 95 are a frequent site of injury crashes. This is due to higher speed limits, greater congestion, and a higher number of negligent drivers on the roadway at any given time. Highway crashes may involve multiple vehicles and determining liability for the crash can be difficult.
