Car Accidents in Florida
Approximately 2.1% of the accidents that occur on our roadways every year are rollover accidents.

Individuals are seriously injured and even killed in Florida car accidents every day. In just one day’s time, statistics show that over 1,000 accidents occur on Florida roads due to the recklessness of other drivers.

It is important to note that many of these collisions can be prevented.

Many injured victims are left to fend for themselves as they navigate the legal system on their path toward compensation for aspects like medical expenses, lost wages, pain and suffering, and many other aspects.
