It’s not uncommon to drive down the road and see a fender bender. It seems that car accidents are a frequent occurrence on the Florida roads. Everywhere you travel in the state, wrecks can be seen all over the freeways and highways.
So, how common are Florida car accidents? The Florida Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles provided the Traffic Crash Statistics Report 2008
, which showed that there were 243,342 traffic accidents in the state of Florida in 2008. This number is equivalent to 665 traffic accidents each day. Those reported accidents involved 346,610 drivers. These numbers are unsettling.
As you know, a car accident can have life altering effects. Many people involved in a car accident suffer serious injuries that can leave a victim disabled. Some accidents take the lives of victims.
What you may not know is the fact that if you have been involved in a Florida car accident, you may be entitled to compensation, especially if the other driver was at fault. You may be able to recover compensation that includes pain and suffering, loss of income, medical expenses and other damages associated with the injuries you have suffered as a result of the accident.
