Car Accidents in Florida
Florida sees more accidents than many other states in the U.S., with hundreds of thousands of victims being hospitalized each year as a result. Though a large percentage of these accidents take place on our major highways, many others will happen at intersections, which are known for being some of the most dangerous places on our roads. In just one year’s time in the entire U.S., over 2.5 million intersection accidents occur due to the negligence of others. Being injured in a car accident can impact a victim’s life in many ways, which is why it is important for them to speak with a Florida car accident attorney immediately.
