Car Accidents in Florida
In one recent year’s time, over 254,000 people were injured in Florida car accidents within the entire state. These car accidents happen due to many different reasons including distracted driving, drunk driving, speeding, fatigued driving, and more. Victims will sometimes spend time in the hospital or miss out on time at work as a result of a car accident that is not their fault.
