Kissimmee Car Accident Attorney MartinezManglardi PA says recent Osceola County car crashes should remind drivers to take care behind the wheel. Like many Florida cities, Kissimmee is growing very rapidly, leading to congested and sometimes dangerous travel. As one of the biggest tourist destinations in the world, Kissimmee and Central Florida, in general, present a sort of perfect storm for car accidents. The blend of commercial traffic, disoriented tourists, commuters, and elderly drivers, as well as beginner drivers, makes for hazardous conditions.
Overall in Florida, there are almost 400,000 car accidents a year, more than 1,000 car accidents every day. That’s nearly a car accident a minute or 44 car crashes every hour on Florida roads. Florida car crashes kill about 3,000 and injure more than 165,000 people every year. According to the Florida Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles (FHSMV) department, there were more than 6,000 car accidents in Osceola County last year. There were about 130 pedestrian accidents in and around Kissimmee, killing 9 people. Kissimmee car accident lawyers are also familiar with bicycle accident injuries, with nearly 100 cyclists getting hit by a car in the county last year.
