This year, there will be about 400,000 reportable crashes in Florida. More than half of these accidents will result in varying levels of injuries for victims. Unfortunately, we frequently see the most serious and catastrophic injuries when hit-and-run accidents take place. Due to their nature, these accidents often take place at high speeds and leave the other driver little time to react in order to avoid a collision. Innocent victims can have their life changed in an instant when they have been hurt in a head-on collision.
