Car Accidents in Florida
Head-on collisions are among the most horrific and life-altering accidents that happen on Florida roads each year. In just one recent year’s time, approximately 2% of accidents were head-on collisions. This may seem like a low number but it is important to note that most head-on collisions end with catastrophic and even fatal injuries. If you have been injured in one of these accidents, you may wonder where to turn. This is especially true if you are sure that the other party is liable for your accident.
Head-on crashes can almost always be prevented. Drivers lose control and cross over the center line due to reasons including distracted driving, drunk driving, speeding, fatigue, and more. In the blink of an eye, your life could be turned upside-down by an accident that is not your fault. If you have evidence that another party is to blame for your collision, it is important that you speak with a skilled Florida car accident attorney as soon as possible. You have rights and protections when it comes to your personal injury claim.
