Florida head-on collision lawyers

Recent data published by AAA sheds an unsettling light into wrong-way crashes on divided highways throughout the country in general, and Florida in particular. The data compiled by AAA states that, every year, about 500 people die as a result of head-on or wrong-way crashes that take place on divided highways. In Florida, it is estimated that between 30 and 35 people die every year as a result of wrong-way crashes on divided highways. These types of collisions, while not accounting for the majority of crashes throughout the state, are some of the most violent and fatal accidents that can take place, which is why this new report from AAA is so important.
