Florida car accidents take place about every 92 seconds. Failing to yield the right-of-way is a common cause of many crashes in our state. Serious accidents often happen at intersections when a driver fails to stop or slow their vehicle for a lawful traffic signal or stop sign. A T-bone collision often has catastrophic results. We hope that all involved in this crash have a complete recovery.
