There is a phenomenal number of vehicle accidents each year in Florida. Recent statistics released by the Florida Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles suggest that there are more than 200,000 vehicle crashes on the state roads each year, which involve more than 300,000 drivers. This all equates to more than 500 car accidents that take place on the state’s roads each day.
While the state does not report comprehensive truck accident statistics, it is obvious that heavy vehicles cause some of the most dramatic accidents and increase the risk of serious harm and injuries to individuals. On a national level, there were more than 4,000 people killed in accidents involving a large truck or bus during 2013.
