Tampa Auto Accident Attorney
There are currently over 16 million licensed drivers on Florida roadways, and with Florida’s growing population, that number is quickly on the rise. So it should come as no surprise that car accidents are the most common type of personal injury claim in the state. In 2014, there were 344,170 reported crashes, 2,336 of which involved fatalities. Of these crashes, 149,426 caused injuries and 192,408 caused property damage. One person died every 4 hours in Florida as the result of a traffic crash, and the economic cost of motor vehicle crashes in 2014 for Florida was $3 billion dollars.
There are three main factors that most often contribute to car accidents: environmental factors such as hazardous roadway conditions and weather, mechanical failure or design flaw of the motor vehicle, and human error. Human error accounts for 90% of all motor vehicle crashes and is often the result of one of the following scenarios:
- Driving at unsafe speeds
- Violating traffic signals and stop signs
- Failing to follow right-of-way rules
- Turning improperly
- Distracted driving
- Driving on the wrong side of the road
- Driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs
