A reportable accident occurs in Florida every 92 seconds. Although most crashes involve intentional or reckless acts, some crashes are caused by drivers who suffer medical emergencies while driving. In these cases, other drivers on the roadway are placed at great risk of death or bodily injury. These cases are often complicated and, if you have been hurt in a crash with a disabled driver, you should seek the assistance of a Florida car accident attorney right away.
