Florida is an interesting place to be a driver. Not only do we have plenty of locals (many of whom are not pure locals) but we also have tourists by the thousands. It can make for an interesting and chaotic driving experience. When we look at the latest full year of reporting, we see that there was a total of 402,385 vehicle crashes reported. Out of those, there were:
While most of the injuries from vehicle crashes are minor, for that same year there were over 20,000 incapacitating injuries. These include:
All of those injuries require immediate emergency medical care and often long periods of rehabilitation. This can become incredibly costly, especially when considering the added hidden costs of vehicle crash injuries. This can include:
In many cases, insurance companies do not take all of these expenses into account when making a settlement determination.
During spring break and over the summer, we will also see an uptick in alcohol-related crashes. For the year discussed above, there were over 5,000 alcohol confirmed crashes. These caused 374 fatalities and over 3,000 injuries.
We also know that distracted driving is a major concern, particularly with younger drivers. When a driver is focused on text messages or videos on a phone, they are not properly watching the roadway.
Regardless of how a person’s negligence causes a crash, they should be held responsible for any injuries they cause.
