TRAFFIC CRIMES

While some traffic violations are minor and involve no injury to a person or damage to property, more serious traffic accidents can result in thousands of dollars in damages, permanent disabilities and, in the worst cases, death.

Traffic Accidents in Florida

According to the Florida Department of Transportation, in 2009, there were over 708,000 traffic accidents on public roadways in the state of Florida.

Traffic accidents that are caused by a driver's negligence or recklessness and/or that cause injuries or fatalities will likely be result in criminal charges being filed against the driver who allegedly caused the accident. Should an individual be convicted of these charges, he or she could face prison sentences, hefty fines and permanent marks on his or her criminal record.
