Impact of Car Crashes in Daytona Beach, Florida

Car accidents can have a major impact on the lives of victims and their families. The good news is that, according to the crash statistics provided in the most recent Florida Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles (FLHSMV) report, crash fatalities in our state dropped to their lowest rate on record. While that is good news, 2,563 innocent victims still lost their lives in automobile accidents. Many of these deaths could have been prevented if only the other drivers who share Florida’s roads had exercised greater care behind the wheel. Car crash fatalities can have an immense effect on survivors. Survivors of car accidents may find themselves struggling to pay the bills, especially if the person who passed away was their family’s primary breadwinner. Even when the person who passed away wasn’t the family’s primary breadwinner, families can be seriously impacted.

Will you need to put a beloved loved one in a nursing home?

Advising Victims of Car Accidents Since 1977.

Types of Car Accidents in Daytona Beach, Florida

Far too many people continue to die every day on Florida’s roadways while driving their own cars, or after being struck by automobiles while riding motorcycles, bicycles or simply taking a walk. In 2009, the FLHSMV gathered the following statistics:

  • 921 alcohol-related fatal crashes were reported.
  • 402 motorcycle fatalities occurred.
  • 100 bicyclists lost their lives.
  • 482 pedestrians were killed.

Teenage drivers remain the most likely to be involved in an automobile accident. Auto accidents tragically cut short the lives of 153 teen drivers and passengers between the ages of 15 and 19. Twenty-one-year-old drivers under the influence of alcohol accounted for the highest overall crash rate while drivers 23 years of age had the highest rate of fatal accidents. This data is of particular concern for Daytona Beach, which is famous as an annual Spring Break destination for thousands of teenagers and young adults.

James Cunningham is a Daytona Beach, Florida car accident lawyer who assists victims who have been impacted by a range of car accident types. Whether you were hurt as a pedestrian, hurt as a bike rider, or hurt as a motorcyclist, James Cunningham may be able to assist you with your claim. Motorcycle, bike, and pedestrian accident victims don’t have the protective chassis of a vehicle and are more likely to suffer more serious injuries. Unfortunately, pedestrians and bike riders aren’t insured parties in the event of an automobile accident and may even be blamed for an accident, even though they are more vulnerable users of the road. Other types of car accidents can include truck accidents, which may involve commercial vehicles. The injuries in these types of accidents can be more serious because of the larger loads these vehicles carry. Truck companies often hold higher premium insurance because of these risks and are also far more responsible for following federal motor carrier safety laws. If you or someone you love was hurt in any type of car accident in Daytona Beach, Florida, you may have a right to seek compensation and justice for your losses, but you may only have a limited time to take action. James Cunningham is a Daytona Beach, Florida car accident lawyer who may be able to help you.
