Monroe County/Florida Keys Car Accidents
Driving in the Florida Keys can be a very dangerous activity. With thousands of vehicles on the roads in Key Largo, Islamorada, Marathon and Key West at any given time, the likelihood of being involved in a Key West car accident or an Islamorada car accident is higher than it would be in many of other municipalities in Florida. Our Monroe County, Fl car accident lawyers are experienced in the litigation and trial of these types of cases. The Key West car accident lawyers and paralegals at Hannon Legal Group have handled many personal injury cases arising out of motor vehicle accidents in the Keys.
Unfortunately, in addition to the volume of motor vehicle traffic, too often motorists in the Florida Keys drive while drunk or while talking on cell phones, reading or composing text messages or checking their e-mail on their smart phones. This is especially true during Spring Break and on holiday weekends such as Memorial Day and the Fourth of July.
Recent studies show that texting while driving is actually more dangerous than driving while drunk.
In Monroe County there were an average of 1,329 car accidents each year from 2006 through 2010.

In fact, there were an average of 22 fatal car accidents each year over the past 10 years in Monroe County.
Drunk driving accidents are also a serious problem in the Florida Keys. With so many vacationers, Spring breakers and tourists in the Keys, motorists on the roads in Monroe County at any given time are more likely to be intoxicated than in many other cities.
Monroe County also has some extremely dangerous roads. US-1 ( called Overseas Highway in the Keys ) has more than its share of serious motor vehicle accidents and is often referred to as one of the most dangerous roads in America.
