According to statistics published by NHTSA, car accidents in Florida occur about once every 92 seconds. Hit-and-run crashes strongly contribute to the overall total number of accidents in our state every year. Last year, more than 100,000 hit-and-run collisions took place in Florida, which accounts for about 25% of all total traffic accidents. Hit-and-run crashes are, unfortunately, becoming more common as victims are injured by drivers who flee the scene and attempt to avoid responsibility for their actions.
