Car Accidents in Florida
Each year across Florida, there are more approximately 400,000 reported car accidents. These crashes take place hundreds of times per day and can place all involved at risk of being seriously injured. Not every Florida car accident will result in injuries but many of them do. According to current statistics, there is about a 1 in 3 chance that a crash will cause some type of injury for the accident victim. Determining the cause of the accident is important as it can help when deciding who should be held legally responsible for the damages that are caused.
Under Florida law, a driver who causes a major accident can be sued for their negligent actions. If the crash meets a certain threshold, the other driver and their insurance company may be liable to pay for the medical bills, pain and suffering, and lost wages caused by the crash. If you or a family member have suffered a crash at the hands of a negligent driver, you should speak with a skilled and trusted Florida car accident attorney right away.
