Car Accidents in Florida
More hit-and-run accidents occur in Florida than any other state in the U.S. Over 200,000 car accidents lead to injuries in the state of Florida every single year. These accidents take place due to a variety of reasons including distracted driving, drunk driving, speeding, and more. When the driver flees the scene of an accident, it is considered a hit-and-run, which is a highly illegal and dangerous act leading to severe results on our roads. Drivers are expected to stop at the scene of an accident so that they can give care to those who are in need and contact the police. If a driver flees the scene of an accident, they are putting drivers at risk. It is essential that victims speak with a Florida car accident attorney as soon as possible after an accident.
