When it comes to car crash fatalities, Florida is the third deadliest state in the nation. Each year, over 2,900 Floridians die in car accidents - a number trumped only by the much larger states of California and Texas. Perhaps more staggering is the number of automobile accidents that result in serious injuries: almost 200,000 according to the Florida Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles. All in all, there are an average of 644 traffic accidents in Florida each day.

Why are the numbers so high? Researchers point to Florida's diverse make-up of business areas, residential areas, and rural areas - the hundreds of thousands of accidents are somewhat evenly spread between wrecks that occur on large highways and interstates such as I-95, I-4, I-75 and I-10 and crashes that occur on smaller two-lane state roads. In fact, according to Dateline NBC, the medium-sized highway US-19 is the deadliest highway in the country.

The Law Firm of Johnson & Gilbert takes every one of these car accidents seriously. Located in Ormond Beach, Florida, and serving the greater Central and North Florida area, we understand that even the most defensive, safe, and smart drivers can become involved in auto accidents due to the dangerous negligence of others. It is our mission to educate injured drivers on the particulars of their case and to assist them in understanding the legal aspects of the situation in plain language and giving down-to-earth advice.

At Johnson & Gilbert, we understand that one of the most stressful aspects of being injured in a car accident is being rushed through the legal process without anyone stopping to inform you of exactly what is happening and why.

Car accidents come in many forms and can cause a wide variety of injuries, including whiplash, broken bones, spine injuries, concussions, brain damage, amputation, paralysis, or even death. These injuries can be terribly life altering, both physically and financially.
