Speeding-Related Crashes in Florida
When a driver exceeds the speed limit, they are increasing the risk of a catastrophic car crash. Speeding is a prevalent factor in fatal car accidents across the country. In 2018 alone, a total of 9,378 people were killed by speeding drivers, with nearly 25 people dying per day. Over the past twenty years, excess speeds have been factors in nearly one-third of reported roadway fatalities in the United States.
In most cases, the negligence of one or more parties is responsible for serious car crashes across the state of Florida, and these collisions can leave victims with severe or life-threatening injuries.
