Be Careful Out There

Representing Orlando, Tampa, Miami and Nearby Areas of Florida

Whether you are driving your personal car, riding your motorcycle, bicycling, or walking your dog on a city street, there is no denying the fact that Florida roadways are dangerous. In 2006, according to the Florida Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles, there were over 250,000 traffic accidents in Florida involving over 350,000 drivers. That was an average of over 700 automobile accidents per day! There were over 3,300 deaths and over 214,000 injuries in those accidents. Over 7,700 pedestrians were injured and over 500 pedestrians were killed. Over 4,200 bicyclists were injured and over 120 were killed. Over 7,900 motorcyclists were injured and over 500 motorcyclists were killed. These aren’t just statistics. These are human beings. Fathers, mothers, children, grandparents, and friends, from all walks of life. Lives changed in the blink of an eye. So, be careful out there and don’t become another addition to these awful statistics. If you are injured, contact the experienced automobile accident attorneys at CGWC.
