Car Accidents in Florida
Florida drivers are always moving at a fast pace, especially in cities and around intersections. Because of this, serious accidents tend to occur in Florida more often than many other states in the U.S. In just one day’s time, it is estimated that over 1,000 Florida car accidents happen due to the reckless acts of others, with hundreds sending victims to the hospital with injuries. Some of the most common injuries stemming from these accidents include spinal cord injuries, TBIs, fractures, organ damage, and more. When somebody has been injured in a car accident, it is important for them to know that they have options moving forward.
Car accidents typically result from another party’s negligence. At intersections, some of the most common reasons for accidents are drivers who are not focused on the roadway, drivers who get drunk behind the wheel, and those who are traveling faster than the speed limit and are unable to stop in time. Serious car accidents happen within the state in the blink of an eye, causing many victims to spend time in the hospital and away from their workplace. This means that victims not only suffer physically but also financially.
