Is distracted driving more prevalent among Apple users?

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?

Charges pending following Florida car accident

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.

Car accident injuries can be a major setback to your holidays

The holiday season is once again underway in Florida and across the country, which means there is likely to be a lot more traffic than usual. Whether you're simply trying to get to work on time or are venturing out on a holiday shopping trip, it pays to leave the house ahead of schedule so you won't be late if you get stuck in traffic. With more vehicles on the road at this time of year, the chances of suffering car accident injuries increase.

Navigating recovery after car accident injuries in Florida

It's safe to assume that a car accident occurs somewhere in Florida every day. At times, you may be at greater risk for being involved in such an incident, such as when you approach a busy intersection or are traveling in congested traffic on a highway. There may be little to nothing you can do to avoid getting hit, especially if a distracted or drunk driver is in your midst. If you suffer car accident injuries that are moderate to severe, it can have a significant negative impact on your life in the weeks or months that follow the collision.

Safety of autonomous vehicles called into question

As automotive manufacturers and technology companies alike continue to push forward with the development of self-driving vehicles, residents in Florida will have to decide just how comfortable they are with these new modes of transportation. Many studies have been done in the last few years measuring the general comfort level among consumers with autonomous vehicles. Some of the most recent of these studies have shown that consumer confidence has waned in the wake of some rather high-profile accidents involving these vehicles.

The six levels of vehicle automation

As residents in Florida continue to read and hear about the development of autonomous cars, they may understandably have a lot of questions. This is understandable as the technology is advancing rapidly. Learning about the technologies involved in creating a self-driving car can help take some of the mystery out of things and make people feel more comfortable with these emerging vehicles.

What is the dangerous instrumentality doctrine?

The expenses arising from an injury you sustain in a car accident in West Palm Beach can quickly become inordinate. Your hope is that whomever caused your accident has adequate insurance coverage to help pay for them. Yet what if the person that hit you was not even driving their own vehicle? Worse yet, what is you discover that said driver had a history of reckless driving, and yet another still entrusted them with their vehicle? Your frustration in such a scenario is certainly understandable, not only over the fact that the driver who hit you probably should not have been driving at, but also at the prospect of having issues securing insurance coverage due to the vehicle not being their own. 

Palm Beach sees rise in pedestrian deaths

Like many people who live in Florida, you may enjoy the moderate temperatures and the ability to be out on foot more than you might be able to do comfortably in other parts of the country. While walking can be a great form of exercise, it can also put you in harm's way when sharing busy roads with motor vehicle traffic. Too many drivers continue to make unwise choices and do not always pay attention to pedestrians.

Should you get that crick in your neck checked out?

Are you a Floridian who was involved in a car crash? If so, you might have ended up with a little twinge of pain in your neck either immediately after the crash, or within a few days or weeks. Though it may be tempting to write this pain off, it could be a sign of damage that needs treatment.
