When you travel by motor vehicle in Florida, you can reasonably expect nearby drivers to obey traffic laws. You don't have to worry about icy roads or unexpected blizzards in this state, but you might be in immediate danger if there is a distracted or drunk driver in the vicinity. Car accident injuries can have long-lasting emotional, physical and economic consequences.
When Florida investigators are called to the scene of a motor vehicle accident, they are often met with a lot of unanswered questions. It can take weeks, even months, to determine what or who may have caused a particular crash to occur. Finding the answers is often a top priority for grieving families who have lost loved ones in a collision.
Florida intersections can be highly dangerous places, like most sections of crossroads across the country. A driver has to be especially alert and cautious when approaching an intersection whether it is secured by traffic lights or unmarked. No matter how skilled, experienced or careful a driver someone is, however, if a nearby motorist is reckless or negligent, disaster can occur. A recent car accident ended tragically.
A request has been made for a case that was filed in another state to be transferred to Florida. The case involves car accident injuries suffered by a member of a collegiate women's rowing team in a collision that occurred in this state while she was traveling with her team in a van that her coach was driving at the time. Sadly, in addition to the young woman's personal injuries, there was also a fatality in the crash.
Florida roadways are often busy during morning hours. From people commuting to and from work to students and faculty traveling to school, traffic often gets backed up to a standstill. The more vehicles on the road at any given moment, the greater the chance that a car accident might occur.
Navigating Florida highways can be challenging, especially during rush hour traffic. If there happens to be a distracted driver or one that is acting under the influence of alcohol in your midst, you may be at great risk for serious injuries if a collision occurs. Recovering from car accident injuries can be a long, arduous experience.
When multiple motorists approach a Florida intersection or merge in traffic at the same time, an otherwise uneventful road trip can quickly become hectic. While there are traffic laws and safety regulations to which every driver must adhere, there is often confusion and driver error concerning rights of way. A recent collision occurred where this issue appears to have been a causal factor.
There's no telling what type of danger may be lurking on a Florida roadway when you get behind the wheel to drive. While most road trips are rather uneventful save perhaps the irritation of being stuck in traffic or at a red light that seems to last forever, others can suddenly take a turn for the worse if another driver is negligent or reckless. In fact, a car accident may not only have immediate consequences, such as a personal injury, but can have long-term negative repercussions as well.
Car accidents are a daily occurrence in Florida and across the country. Unfortunately, more and more of these accidents are caused by distracted driving. Too many individuals feel the urge to check their phones, send a text, make a call or check social media when they should be focused on driving. Could the type of device a driver has affect the level of distraction?
All Florida drivers must comply with all traffic laws and safety regulations. Doing so, however, does not guarantee that every motorist will comply. A horrific head-on collision occurred on Christmas Eve that has resulted in charges pending against the driver of one of the vehicles. When a car accident results in fatalities, as this one did, property damage is merely the tip of the iceberg when determining the financial consequences of the collision.
