Common Types of Car Accidents in Florida

Representing Orlando, Tampa, Miami and Nearby Areas of Florida

Florida is a tourist state. This means that at any given time there can be thousands of people on the road who are unfamiliar with their surroundings. Tourists are more likely to become distracted by things such as GPS, maps, and rubbernecking, but these types of distraction are not limited to those visiting the Sunshine State.

Studies from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration have shown that distraction is a leading cause in most auto accidents in Florida and elsewhere in the country. If you or a loved one has been injured by a distracted driver, you will want one of our Florida personal injury lawyers on your side as soon as possible.

If you have been injured in an auto accident, please contact Colling Gilbert Wright & Carter or call 407-712-7300 to schedule a free consultation at our Florida law firm.
