As I recently wrote in our blog, as Jacksonville accident lawyers, far too often we see instances of serious collisions where the only person injured is the one not wearing a seat belt. Unfortunately, the examples just keep coming.
A man was traveling westbound on Florida 200 on Amelia Island when he rear-ended another vehicle. The man in the vehicle that was rear-ended was wearing his seat belt and was not hurt. The other driver was not wearing his seat belt and suffered serious injuries.
According to the State of Florida, seven people not wearing seat belts were killed in car crashes in 2006 in Nassau County and fifty two people not wearing seat belts were killed in Duval County.
