So, Just How Many Florida Car Accidents Occur Every Year?
As you know, it’s not uncommon to drive down the road in Orlando or throughout Central Florida and see a fender bender. In fact, everywhere you travel in the state, wrecks can be seen all over the freeways and highways on any given day.
So, just how common are Florida car accidents? According to the most recent statistics provided by the Florida Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles, there were 227,998 traffic accidents in the state of Florida in 2011, involving over 300,000 drivers. This is equivalent to 625 traffic accidents each day. While these statistics are unsettling, they do represent over a three percent decrease from the accident totals in 2010.
A car accident can turn your world upside down. Many people involved in car accidents suffer serious injuries that can leave them disabled and in need of lifelong care. Other accidents even take the lives of victims, leaving the victim's family behind searching for answers.
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.
