Car Accidents in Florida
Florida sees more hit-and-run accidents than many other states in the U.S. These accidents tend to lead to severe results due to the fact that a driver flees the scene of an accident immediately after it occurs. In 2019 alone, statistics showed that approximately 105,000 hit-and-run accidents happened in Florida. A large percentage of these accidents lead to accidents, which means that victims are left wondering how they will move forward after a collision that is not their fault.
