Getting into a car accident in Florida can lead to property damage, injuries and even death. While the accident itself is bad enough, certain issues often arise in the state that can cause more problems for those involved. These include an underinsured or uninsured driver. If a driver isn't driving without insurance, there is the possibility that the person is driving with the bare minimum of insurance. A study examined levels of insurance, how much is required by state, and the number of drivers who were not insured. Florida is one of the worst states in the union when the facts are examined.
Automobile accidents occur every day all across the country. Most result in property damage and sometimes minor injuries. Some, though, kill people whether because of weather conditions or equipment failures or because a driver is careless or negligent.
Car occupants are the more vulnerable in the event of a truck-car accident, and that is why they often suffer critical injuries. Yet such accidents are often preventable if only truck drivers exercise caution while at the wheel. Truck drivers need to exercise an especially high degree of care due to the size, load and speed of their vehicles. Of course, other motorists have to do their part and drive defensively.
