Dangers on Citrus County Roads

Citrus County is no stranger to traffic accidents and deaths. In fact, a recent report from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration ranked it as the 13th deadliest county per capita in the nation among counties its size. In the same study, a stretch of U.S. Highway 19 running between Homosassa to Crystal River ranked as the deadliest road. 

The county’s roads saw 165 traffic deaths between 2017 and 2021, with 33 of them occurring on U.S. 19. A spokesperson for the county cited ongoing construction, poor lighting, and lack of crosswalks among the causes of dangerous traffic conditions.  

Persistent Threats Remain

Even when the county makes welcome improvements on roads in Homosassa and throughout Citrus County, one threat will remain: the scourge of careless and negligent drivers that place lives at risk every day. 

In handling car accident claims, our lawyers conduct thorough investigations to expose the dangerous behaviors that inflict serious injuries on our clients. Some of the most common forms of driver negligence in Citrus County include: 

Distracted Driving 

In the time it takes a driver to send or read a text message, a vehicle moving at 55 miles per hour will have travelled the length of a football field. In the U.S., 3308 lives were lost due to distracted driving in 2022 alone. While texting is perhaps the most dangerous form of distracted driving, the careless behavior takes other forms. Driving while eating, applying makeup, tending to children and performing other activities takes a driver’s hands, eyes and mind off of where it should be—on the road. 

Drunk Driving 

There were more than 5200 alcohol-related traffic accidents in Florida in 2022. Every time a drunk driver gets behind the wheel, he or she is placing lives at risk. When a drunk driver injures someone, the victim may be entitled to additional compensation in the form of punitive damages. 


In the study mentioned above, speeding was cited as the most common cause of fatal car accidents. In the context of a car accident injury claim, evidence of speeding and other careless behavior can play an important role in proving a plaintiff’s case. A Homosassa Springs car accident lawyer can investigate the accident scene for skid marks and other evidence that might point to speeding, reckless driving and other dangerous driving behaviors. 

These are just a few examples of negligence and carelessness that lead to car accident injuries and wrongful deaths on roads in Homosassa Springs and throughout Citrus County. If you were injured due to negligence of any kind or are unsure of whether you have an actionable claim, a knowledgeable Citrus County auto accident attorney at our firm can review your case and help you understand your legal options. 

The Law Offers Hope

Under Florida personal injury laws, victims of negligence have the right to pursue legal action against people who have caused them harm. If you have suffered a car accident injury as the result of the negligence of another driver or other party, you may be entitled to compensation for: 

  • Medical bills, past and future 
  • Wage loss, past and future 
  • Pain and suffering 
  • Emotional trauma 
  • Scarring and disfigurement 
  • Diminished quality of life 
  • Property damage 

The Homosassa Springs personal injury lawyers at Kogan & DiSalvo know how to thoroughly assess damages in car accident claims. We will take painstaking care to document all the ways in which the car accident has impacted your life, including your ability to work and partake in hobbies, the medical needs you face and will continue to face, and even your personal relationships. 

Talk With Your Own Lawyer First 

If a careless driver injured you, you may be hearing from a lot of different people about your legal claim. The driver’s insurance company may contact you and talk about your compensation. They may even offer you a settlement that seems attractive—at least on first glance. 

Exercise caution before making any important decisions regarding your claim—and don’t sign anything before talking with your own lawyer first. Your claim is likely worth far more than their first offer. 

Remember, these people are your legal opponents and are motivated by protecting their own financial well-being—not yours. A Florida car accident attorney at Kogan & DiSalvo has your interests in mind. When you enlist our services, we will handle all communications with insurance companies on your behalf so you can focus on your recovery. 

Handling the Most Serious Cases

Kogan & DiSalvo is a boutique personal injury law firm with the experience, skill and resources to handle the most complex car accident claims in Citrus County and throughout Florida. 

We have extensive experience handling cases on behalf of people who have suffered serious and life-changing injuries such as: 

  • Brain injuries: The effects of brain injuries can last for years—even a lifetime, and may include dizziness, severe headaches, memory loss and cognitive impairment. Oftentimes, the injured person him- or herself may not notice the effects of a brain injury right away. For this reason, it is important that loved ones monitor the brain injury victim for changes in behavior and signs of impairment. 
  • Spinal cord injuries: A herniated disc, spinal fracture or other injury to the back or neck can make it impossible to work or engage in everyday tasks. Serious spinal cord injuries may even result in paraplegia or quadriplegia. 
  • Broken bones: Fractures can have lingering effects that last much longer than the time it takes to set a bone. In some cases, nerve damage and permanent mobility issues ensue after a car crash that results in a broken bone. 
  • Scarring and disfigurement: When a car accident results in permanent scarring and disfigurement, victims may pursue compensation for the emotional, physical and financial consequences resulting from those changes. 

It is important that you receive medical treatment throughout the course of your recovery and strictly follow your doctor’s orders. Evidence from your treatment, including doctor’s notes, diagnostic tests, surgery logs and other medical documentation will play an important role in your car accident claim.
