Car Accidents in Florida
Rollover accidents are some of the most devastating accidents that occur on our roads. In just one recent year’s time, it was estimated that approximately 2% of car accidents were rollovers. Though these accidents do not occur as commonly as other accidents on our roads, they are known for being some of the most catastrophic in nature. This means that they lead to some of the most severe injuries, as well as sometimes take the lives of those involved. If you have suffered injuries as a result of a serious rollover collision, it is important that you act quickly to retain your rights.
Florida car accidents occur in the blink of an eye due to many different reasons such as driver distractions, drunk driving, speeding, drowsy driving, and more. Rollover accidents are incredibly forceful and lead to serious injuries such as spinal cord injuries, organ damage, TBIs, and more.
