Common Causes and Effects of Car Accidents in Lee County, Florida
One of the most tragic aspects of car accidents is that they are often avoidable. A lot of times, the cause of an accident comes down to driver negligence, and when this happens, you may be entitled to compensation. Some common causes of auto accidents in Florida and across the country include using a cellphone to send text messages, make phone calls, or check social media apps, driving while intoxicated by drugs or alcohol, speeding, failing to stop at stop signs and traffic lights, and driving unsafely in bad weather.
If any of these causes lead to an accident, everyone involved could potentially suffer serious injuries, many of which could be permanently life-changing. Injuries often associated with car accidents include broken bones, traumatic brain injuries, burns, internal damage to organs, spinal cord damage that can lead to paralysis, and neck and/or back injuries. These injuries often require expensive medical care, sometimes for the rest of a person’s life.
Florida Auto Accident Fatalities: A Troubling Trend
Despite vehicle manufacturers continuing to implement new safety features, Florida continues to see a rise in auto accident-related fatalities. The National Safety Council (NSC) stated in a 2016 report that of all of the states, Florida had the highest upward trend when it came to traffic-related fatalities. In fact, between 2014 and 2016, the number of deaths in auto accidents rose by a staggering 43%. In 2016 alone, 1,590 individuals died due to injuries suffered in car accidents. Many of these fatalities came from Collier and Lee County, Florida, traffic accidents. If you have lost a loved one due to another driver’s negligence, you may be able to seek justice through a wrongful death suit.
