Auto accidents occur in Florida every day, and according to the state government over 250,000 of them occur in Florida every year. Of these accidents, approximately 3,000 people are killed, and overall there really is no one type of Florida auto accident that's more harmful or deadly than others. Anyone who has been injured in such an incident needs the help of an experienced Florida auto accident lawyer, and below are just a few examples of different types of collisions that can occur.
The rear-end collision occurs when one vehicle slams into the back of another. Florida rear-end collisions can occur for many reasons, and the majority of these crashes result in the driver who hit the other vehicle from behind being found at fault. This can be true even if the vehicle in front stopped suddenly, as the notion that can influence this analysis is that if the driver in the rear had been defensive enough in his or her approach, he or she would have been able to stop in time or otherwise avoid the collision.
Perhaps the most common type of injury that results from rear-end crashes is whiplash, which is a complicated, painful and potentially debilitating injury that can be difficult to prove for many reasons. Those who suffer from this injury need the help of a Florida auto accident lawyer to make sure that the offer of proof is as strong as possible.
Head-on collisions that occur in Florida are almost always the result of a serious mistake made by one driver. Something had to go wrong with the at-fault driver's judgment, attention span or thought process in general to be moving in the wrong direction on the road or to ignore some sort of traffic law that put both vehicles in danger. Head-on collisions can also be the most deadly as many of them occur at high speeds.
Florida side impact crashes can leave a wake of devastation in their path, especially if the side of the vehicle that's hit contains a passenger on the other side of the door. The impact of these collisions can crush the passenger's rib cage, spine and other vulnerable body parts. Side impact collisions usually occur when someone turns in front of someone else or otherwise makes an unpredictable move that puts a vehicle directly in the path of another.
