Each year in Florida, about 250,000 injury accidents will be reported in our state. A car accident can have life-altering consequences in a matter of seconds. The unfortunate reality of car accidents is that a person may have little control over whether and when a crash takes place. Negligent drivers are abundant on Florida's roadways and each person is at risk of being involved in a crash every time they step into a vehicle.
