People Can Become Seriously Injured In These Kinds Of Crashes

Sure, everybody sees all the great stuff that comes along with living in or visiting Florida. For instance, the weather is nice for the better part of each year. There are gorgeous beaches and miles and miles of coastline to explore. Plus, people can always find something to do thanks to amusement parks, aquariums, gardens, and more. However, just like anywhere else in the United States, not everything is peaches and cream in the Sunshine State. 

For example, the location seems to be a regular target for hurricanes. Not to mention, the climate is pretty hot, but that is fine with some folks, especially those that don't mind sweating. Also, with so many registered vehicle owners and tourists in the state, the traffic can get quite heavy on roads and highways. All it takes is for one driver to make a mistake for someone else's day, trip, or vacation to get ruined.

Various types of crashes will be discussed in the following sections. If you become involved in one of them where negligence is involved, and you sustain severe injuries, do not hesitate to contact our office. The team is ready and prepared to fight on your behalf and recover the compensation that you so rightfully deserve. Just remember that friendly, trustworthy, and professional legal assistance is only a phone call away. Now, let's move onto some different kinds of accidents.

Nothing Good Comes From Pedestrian Crashes

Pedestrians can be found walking along and crossing Florida roadways during the day and night. There is certainly nothing wrong with them doing so, but if a driver is speeding, texting, or doing something that takes their attention away from the road, catastrophe can strike. According to Florida's Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles, in 2018, pedestrian crashes were aplenty at 9,356. Those incidents were responsible for 7,935 injuries and 720 fatalities.

Commercial Truck Accidents Are Troublesome 

Tractor-trailers play essential roles in the United States. They transport different kinds of goods from state to state, including right here in Florida. When passenger vehicles get tangled up with them, the results are usually disastrous. Broken bones, burns, lacerations, and traumatic brain injury can enter the picture. Due to the sheer size and weight of the eighteen-wheelers, it is not uncommon for occupants of cars, trucks, or SUVs to lose their lives in the events either.

Injuries Can Be Obtained Through Automotive Accidents

There are different kinds of car crashes that people can become involved in, including but not limited to rear-end, head-on, and side-impact collisions. Rollover incidents are possible too. Modern vehicles come with all sorts of safety features like airbags and seat belts, but sometimes, those items don't prevent drivers and passengers from getting injured. The Annual Crash Report from the FLHSMV shows that there were 403,626 accidents in Florida in 2018, which averaged out to 1,106 crashes per day. 

Those incidents led to 236,157 injuries and 3,135 deaths. So, whether you live in Florida or just come to the state to visit, be sure to keep your head on a swivel while behind the wheel. With any luck, the action will help you avoid all of the crashes mentioned above, but if not, we might be able to be of assistance.
