Intersection Crashes in Florida
Intersections are a critical component of Florida roadways, and most drivers don’t think twice while crossing a busy intersection. However, national statistics reveal that intersections are more likely to be the scene of a catastrophic collision. According to the Governor’s Highway Safety Association, intersections have become more dangerous in the past 25 years. Nearly 40% of reported vehicle collisions take place at intersections.
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. What you do in the moments immediately following a crash can greatly impact any potential Florida personal injury claim, determining your ability to obtain a reasonable settlement. Injured parties should contact a Tampa car crash attorney for efficient, knowledgeable, and compassionate legal representation.
