Reckless Driving Crashes in Tampa
Tampa drivers have a reputation for acting recklessly on the city’s roadways. Each year, an estimated three out of every ten car crashes are attributable to reckless drivers. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, reckless driving is responsible for nearly one-half of roadway fatalities each year. The most prevalent form of recklessness on Florida roads is distracted driving.
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.
