A Florida car accident can take place very suddenly and unexpectedly. One minute you may be driving down the road and minding your own business and the next you can find yourself as the victim of a serious crash. Given the number of negligent drivers on Florida's roadways, motorists should always use the utmost care and caution to lower their risk of being involved in an injury accident.
