No one ever expects to be involved in a crash when they get into a vehicle. The reality, however, is that a reportable car accident in Florida takes place about once every 90 seconds. These numbers place the Sunshine State at or near the top of all national statistics when it comes to crashes, making Florida one of the most dangerous states in the nation. Motorists on our roadways should always exercise the greatest level of caution and safety in order to avoid or lower their risks of being involved in a serious accident.
