Fatal Car Accidents in Orange County

Fatal Accidents Orlando 

Ask any car accident attorney in Orlando — there is an alarming number of fatal car accidents every year in Orange County. While the rest of the state has seen a reduction in fatal car accidents over the past few years, Orange County has actually seen an increase, which is alarming, and begs the question: what is causing so many bad accidents in our county?

I-4: The Most Deadly Road In America

Between 2011 and 2015, I-4 was found to be the most deadly road in America, with an average of 1.250 deaths PER MILE along the entirety of the road. What makes this statistic even more alarming is that Orlando is the deadliest city along the entire stretch of the road. The main issue here could just be purely a fact of congestion, with hundreds of thousands of people pouring onto the highway each day to travel to and from work, amusement parks, restaurants, and other destinations. This road is essential in Florida, linking Orlando with Tampa and Daytona Beach, meaning that there is a lot of long-distance travel and commercial trucking along this roadway.

The quality of the road may play a factor as well. I-4 is known to have many blind curves, poorly-maintained roadways, and seemingly endless construction. While each of these factors does contribute to creating a dangerous roadway, is this really any different than many other roadways in the US?

In addition, many people point out that there are many instances of aggressive driving along Interstate 4, such as passing on the side of the road, tailgating, and rapid changes in speed in traffic. Traffic is particularly bad along I-4 between 3 pm and 7 pm on weekdays, due to commuter traffic.

Staying Safe While Driving In Orlando

Fatal Car Accidents Orange County

One of the most important things that everyone in a car should do, even though it isn’t required by law in Florida for people over 18, is to wear their seatbelt. Seatbelts are proven to be extremely helpful in protecting people from serious injuries in car accidents, especially in tandem with front and side airbags.

In addition to a simple precautionary measure like wearing your seatbelt, it is important to remain vigilant while traveling. Knowing that Orange County is dangerous to drive through is a useful tool for commuters, who can be sure to be extra cautious when changing lanes, approaching intersections, or exiting highways. To stay safe and alert, it is important to avoid using your cellphone, GPS, or radio controls while in motion, and instead keep your attention on the road. It only takes a second of distraction to cause a serious accident.

I must say that working with 1800-Injured was seamless during a stressful period. Both myself and my wife got into auto accidents within two months of each other and the service received ion both cases from this company is seciond to none. We felt completely at ease from the initial phone call, as they were recommended by someone else who too had a pleasant experience and at every stage in the process we were kept informed, the explanation of the process was thorough and the follow up was an indication that we were in great hands. Thank you for making what could have been a very unpleasant and stressful experience one that was seamless and stress free.

I was recently involved in a automotive accident. A car crashed into my car from behind and I was pushed forward and I hit the car in front of me. At that time I really didn't know what to do or who to call. I remember seeing an Ad for 1 800 Injured on my Instagram page. I called them and they were very informative and handled everything from A to Z. They set me up with a great lawyer and with the right doctors.

Hace unos cuantos meses tuve un accidente con mi novia en el highway, inmediatamente despues del accidente me comunique con 1-800 injured ya que un amigo me lo habia mencionado. Desde que hice la llamada estuvieron a mi disposicion 100%. Me mandaron a la clinica el mismo dia y me ofrecieron un driver de mi casa a la clinica ya que no podia manejar en esas circustancias. No solo eso, tambien me ofrecieron un exelente abogado que llego a mi casa el mismo dia del accidente. No puedo quejarme de su servicio, recibi un excelente tratamiento en la clinica durante 3 meses y en todas mis visitas el driver me llevaba y me traia a mi casa. Definitivamente ofrecen un excelente servicio y se preocupan por sus clientes. Si llegan a tener un accidente automovilistico no duden en contactar a 1-800 Injured!
