The yearly influx of tourists, as well as the addition of commuting students on their way to the many colleges and universities of Florida, leads to heavy congestion of the roads throughout the state. Even with a number of interstates and highways running throughout the state like veins, the overcrowding that occurs on Florida's streets cannot be helped. Because of this, it is nearly unavoidable that quite a large number of road accidents are recorded in the state yearly. An increase of two percent was noted between the car accident figures in 2003 and 2004, with 2003 showing 3,169 accidents that resulted in fatalities and 2004 having 3,244. Forty-three percent of these accidents involved other moving vehicles. In 2004 alone, there were 1,260 deaths as a result of moving car accidents.

And though nothing can replace a lost loved one, compensation for injuries, medical expenses, and other damages can go a long way in helping victims on the road to recovery.
