Florida Truck Accident Law Firm
While the State of Florida has made significant strides in preventing roadway accidents, injuries, and fatalities, the reality is that too many people continue to suffer serious injuries and fatalities as a result of vehicle accidents. In Leon County, which includes Tallahassee, traffic crashes have surged in the last decade in part because of the increase in distracted driving. In 2018, there were 7,382 motor vehicle crashes in Leon County, resulting in 27 fatalities and 4,192 injuries. Truck accidents accounted for 664 of that year’s crash total.
In addition to car accidents in 2018, Florida’s Integrated Report Exchange System (FIRES) reports that, in Leon County, 8 people were killed in 170 crashes involving pedestrians and one person was killed in the 57 bicycle accidents that occurred. The 2019 FIRES preliminary report indicates that, through June 2019, there were 3,060 total motor vehicle crashes, resulting in 14 fatalities and 1,745 injuries. Of these, 82 involved pedestrians, causing 7 deaths; there were 26 bicycle accidents, with no fatalities; and 261 truck crashes were reported.
