Stopping distracted driving should be a top safety priority in Florida. The most recent statistics from the State Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles (FLHSMV) recorded nearly 48,500 distracted driving crashes in the state in a single year. Those collisions killed 300 people and left 2,700 more with serious bodily injuries.
Nationwide data paints an equally dismal picture. The U.S. is gripped by a distracted driving crisis that takes the lives of eight people every day.
Understanding the scope of the problem is the first step towards finding a solution. Below, Brooks Law Group examines the most current data highlighting the prevalence of distracted driving and what accident victims can do if they are hurt.
