Living in Orlando, Florida there are a few things that we know for sure. One, it’s going to rain, and when it rains, it pours; two, when it’s pouring, it’s not really safe to drive on the highway; and three, despite what the local government says, Interstate-4 will never be completed on-time… ever.
Driving in Florida can be unsafe. Here are some reasons why, if something does happen to you, you should consider the benefits of a car accident chiropractor in Orlando.
Car Accidents Can Happen, Even to the Best Drivers
“It’s not you, it’s me.” You’ve probably heard this lament before and it’s never truer than when driving. No matter how good and talented of a driver you are, no matter how often you check your mirrors, indicate when turning, or leave space between you and the car ahead of you while driving down the highway—accidents happen and they can happen even if you were not at fault. As a driver, you have to trust other drivers, and let’s be real, other drivers can let you down.
In 2017, there were a total of 258,672 car crashes in Florida. 107, 113 of these resulted in injuries, with a total of 163,402 related to the crash itself.
Here are some car accident statistics:
- In the US the average number of car accidents each year is 6 million.
- Each year, 3 million people in the U.S. are injured in car accidents.
- 27% of crashes are non-fatal injuries.
Let’s face it, accidents happen.
