Car Accidents in Florida
Intersections are known for being some of the most dangerous places on Florida roads where some of the most horrific and life-altering accidents occur. In just one recent year’s time, it was estimated that approximately 2.5 million intersection-related accidents took place in the state of Florida due to the negligence of others. These accidents occur in the blink of an eye when drivers are not paying close attention to the roads around them. If you have suffered from injuries as a result of a car accident, it is essential that you speak with an attorney who has handled claims like yours in the past.
Florida car accidents take place due to many different reasons including driver distractions, drunk driving, speeding, drowsy driving, and more. These accidents can range anywhere from minor to incredibly severe. These injuries sometimes land victims in the hospital and cause them to miss out on time at work, which can impact every aspect of their life.
