Car Accident Statistics in Florida
Out of all the various types of personal injury claims that can arise in a person’s life, car accidents are undoubtedly one of the most common. According to Florida’s Integrated Report Exchange System and Florida’s Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles, there are about 30,000 car accidents in the state each month. The same statistics show that there will be about 3,000 traffic fatalities and another 200,000 injuries every year. With roughly 66% of accidents occurring in ideal daylight conditions and 84% occurring on dry asphalt, it seems unreasonable to blame the crashes on environmental hazards. What is the cause of most car accidents, then?
Everyday negligence on part of a motorist is the number one cause of car accidents in Florida, and all across the country. Human error, mistakes, and recklessness can turn a quick trip into a disaster.
Common forms of driver negligence, and therefore causes of car accidents, include:
- Intoxication: Motorists who drink and drive put themselves, other drivers, and any passersby at serious risk of injury.
- Exhaustion: There is a spike of car accidents every day around 5 PM, at the end of the workday. Not only are more people driving during this hour but they are also tired and hungry.
- Distraction: Texting and driving has become a serious problem and may cause anywhere between 25% and 40% of all crashes, according to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).
- Recklessness: Speeding, swerving through traffic, and rounding corners quickly are all dangerous yet widespread driving behaviors.
Florida’s Personal Injury Protection (PIP) Law
In early 2012, Florida State legislation passed that made personal injury protection (PIP) insurance mandatory for all drivers in the state. When you are in a car accident, your PIP insurance will automatically cover up to $10,000 for related medical cost damages that you incur. In theory, if the other driver in the accident is hurt, their own PIP insurance will take care of their medical coverage. The idea behind the law was to reduce the number of frivolous personal injury lawsuits that stem from car accidents.
Florida’s PIP insurance law is controversial, however, as it can make it more difficult for an injured driver to receive the coverage they need. It also does not take vehicle repairs into consideration. If you have been in a car accident in Florida, you should still file a personal injury claim with a Boca Raton car accident attorney from Willis Law, P.A. We may be able to prove that the other driver was liable and owes you some sort of compensation, despite the fact that Florida is a “no fault” state.
