Florida car accidents take place about every 92 seconds. Busy streets, such as the Florida Turnpike, are a common site of car accidents. High-speed areas combined with reckless or inattentive driving can spell disaster in a matter of seconds. Many collisions on major thoroughfares tend to involve multiple vehicles and the subsequent investigation may take time to complete as complicated issues of liability can arise.
