According to statistics, about 250,000 injuries and more than 3,000 fatalities are reported in Florida car accidents each year. Not every car accident will result in injuries and some will only cause property damage. However, many crashes are very serious in nature and can cause serious injuries, including head trauma, broken bones, spinal cord injuries, and even death in the worst-case scenario. Sadly, many victims of car accidents in Florida are innocent motorists who are hurt when they come into contact with a negligent driver.
