Car Accidents Archives

Attention to detail is key to vehicle accident litigation success

Car accidents can happen to anyone practically anytime that they are out on Florida's many roads and highways. A driver's failure to yield, failure to check their blind spot, failure to brake in time and many other failures of proper driving conduct can result in dangerous and sometimes fatal vehicle collisions. After an automobile crash a victim may feel helpless to seek the compensation they need to pay for their accident associated medical bills, replace their lost wages and repair the property that was damaged when a negligent driver set their life into a damaging spiral.

Drunk driving accidents are a big issue in Florida

Law enforcement officials throughout the state of Florida take many proactive steps to keep drunk drivers off of the roads. They patrol for affected drivers and set up sobriety checkpoints to look for individuals who may be too intoxicated to operate their motor vehicles. They run anti-drunk driving campaigns to educate Floridians on the dangers of driving while under the influence and enforce the state's drunk driving laws to deter individuals from getting behind the wheel when inebriated.

How distracted driving affects those on the roads

The popularity of smartphones can be seen throughout the United States. If you are sitting in a bus or at a café, look around and notice the dozens of people with their eyes fixated on their phones and tablets. While this technology is undoubtedly embraced by many Americans, it has also led to a substantial increase in accidents on the roads.

How common is secondary enforcement for texting bans?

Florida is among the 46 states that prohibit all drivers from texting while driving. However, Florida’s ban is not a primary enforcement ban, but rather a secondary enforcement ban. What does this mean? It means that a citation for texting while driving generally can only be given when a violation of a different traffic law was also present. Primary enforcement, on the other hand, allows such citations to be issued independently.
