Fatal Car Accidents in Florida
Sadly, fatal car accidents in Florida take place every day. According to statistics from a recent year, more than 3,000 people lost their lives in car accidents across our state. This number includes crash victims who were tragically killed in collisions that were not their fault. A large number of Florida car accidents take place in situations where negligent drivers are responsible for the outcome of the accident. These drivers behave in a careless and reckless manner and may be speeding or engaging in some other dangerous driving mannerism at the time of the accident.
Each car accident must be carefully investigated in order to determine responsibility for the crash. Following the investigation, the police may issue a charge against the driver who caused the accident to occur.
