Florida Auto Accidents
On average, Florida sees over 400,000 auto collisions per year that result in more than 250,000 injuries and over 3,000 deaths annually. Each day, a car accident in Florida occurs approximately once every 84 seconds. A fatal collision takes place approximately once every three hours.
These collisions can occur for a multitude of different reasons, but right now the leading cause for Florida car accidents is distracted driving, specifically texting and driving. Distracted drivers cause nearly a quarter of all of the car accidents in Florida.
