Speeding-Related Crashes in Florida
Speeding is far from innocent, despite the fact that a majority of drivers will openly admit to routinely exceeding the speed limit. High-speed crashes are involved in an estimated 25% of annual roadway fatalities across the United States, resulting in thousands of deaths per year. An estimated 25 people were killed daily by speeding drivers in 2018, contributing to a total of 9,378 roadway fatalities that year.
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.
