Florida Car Accident & Injury Damages
According to Florida Statutes § 627.736, injured drivers in Florida can seek medical coverage and wage compensation through their personal injury protection (PIP) insurance, regardless of who caused their crash. However, if you have a severe or catastrophic injury and have expenses that exceed your PIP, you can pursue compensation from an at-fault driver.

Distracted Driving Is Dangerous Driving
When drivers take their attention off the road, they can commit driving errors that result in serious accidents. For example, distracted driving can cause a motorist to speed, cross over the centerline, run a red light or stop sign, or rear-end another vehicle. Additionally, when drivers are not paying attention, they likely will not engage in defensive maneuvers that can lessen a collision’s severity.
Causes of distracted driving may include:
- Cell phones, music players, and navigation devices
- Grooming/applying makeup
- Eating and drinking
- Other passengers and children
- Unsecured objects in the vehicle/reaching for items on the floor or in the back seat
- Vehicle climate controls
- Sights outside the vehicle (“rubbernecking”)
- Text messages (it is illegal to text and drive under Florida Statutes § 316.305)
According to the Florida Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles (FLHSMV), there were nearly 18,700 injuries and 271 fatalities due to motor vehicle accidents in Hillsborough County in 2021. If another driver harmed you or your loved one because their eyes and mind were off the road or their hands were physically off the wheel, our Tampa distracted car accident & injury lawyers can hold them accountable.
