Intersection Accidents in Florida
Entering a busy intersection is second nature for most drivers. However, intersections have proven to be a hotspot for catastrophic car crashes, with more than 2.5 million reported accidents taking place at roadway crossings each year, according to the Federal Highway Administration. An estimated 50% of injury collisions and 25% of fatal accidents occur at intersections, and the majority of these crashes involve left-hand turns.
In Florida, other drivers owe a duty to use reasonable care when operating a motor vehicle. Unfortunately, many drivers in the state breach this duty and cause catastrophic car accidents. The resulting damages following a car accident can impact a victim’s life. The driver responsible for causing a Florida car accident can be held responsible for any resulting injuries. Before you discuss your claim with an insurance company, you should consult with a qualified Tampa car crash attorney.
