A reportable car accident happens every 92 seconds in Florida. Our thoughts are with the Florida Highway Patrol Trooper as he recovers from injuries sustained in this rear-end crash.
A car accident can occur suddenly, violently and without warning. Everyone is at risk for an accident each time they get behind the wheel. Although certain safety precautions can be taken, nothing can guarantee that a car accident will not occur simply due to the error of other drivers on the road.
