Pileup Collisions in Tampa Florida
There are times when a single collision can lead to a chain-reaction crash involving multiple vehicles. These types of crashes can be particularly difficult for injured victims due to contested liability. Reckless drivers are responsible for nearly one-third of reported traffic fatalities each year, contributing to an estimated 13,000 deadly wrecks each year. Rear-end crashes are known to result in pileup accidents, contributing to thousands of deaths nationwide.
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.
