Car accidents are the number one cause of serious injury in Florida. Severe car accidents change the lives of the people involved forever. Whether it is due to injury, pain, lost personal capacity, wages and employment advancement, enjoyment of favorite activities, or even the loss of a loved one, the victims of collisions suffer a great deal and must be reimbursed for their losses.
There are many types of car accidents and each one requires different legal steps to ensure that your rights are protected, and that you get the compensation you deserve. For instance, if you are a driver who was injured in a Daytona Beach, FL car accident, your case is completely different than that of a passenger in a commercial vehicle accident.
Generally, people who operate cars must exercise “reasonable care under the circumstances.” A failure to use reasonable care is considered negligence. A person who negligently operates a vehicle may be required to pay for harm to a person or property, caused by his or her negligence. If you have been involved in a car accident or negligent car wreck, do not hesitate to seek legal counsel from a Daytona Beach car accident attorney experienced in car collision cases in order to best protect your interests.
Florida Car Accident Data
According to the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) there were 30,057 fatal motor vehicle crashes in the United States in 2013 in which 32,719 deaths occurred.

Car accidents caused by negligent drivers and defective or malfunctioning auto parts on roads located in and around Daytona Beach, Volusia County and throughout the state of Florida are one of the leading causes of death and serious injuries such as head and brain injury, spine injury, loss of limb, loss of senses, and other catastrophic injuries.
And injuries are a serious plausibility for people involved in crashes- more than half of the crashes in 2016 ended with injuries. Equally troubling is Florida’s consistent increase in accidents year over year. The state suffered an unprecedented 100,000 additional accidents between 2005 and 2014- a 30 percent increase. And, as seen below, the trend is continuing, despite the dip in 2016’s last few months. In 2015, Florida reported 374,669 accidents; In 2016, the number increased by more than 14,000 to 389,369 accidents.

Anyone who gets behind the wheel of a car assumes a major responsibility to take precaution to avoid causing a crash, and any failure to do so may serve as grounds for legal action.
