Three Things Florida Motorcycle Accident Victim Should Know

November 28, 2022

Any motor vehicle accident can lead to severe life-changing injuries or the loss of a loved one, but motorcycle enthusiasts face special risks.  Because of a bike’s small comparable size and weight, diminished stability, and lack of safety equipment, motorcycle enthusiasts face special dangers when confronted by drunk, distracted, or careless drivers.  Even the most skilled rider can be victimized by an inattentive or reckless driver of a passenger car.  Motorcyclists who suffer injury or lose a loved one to a negligent motorist might have a legal claim for financial compensation.  However, motorcycle claims can present challenges that differ from those of car occupants.  We address several of those unique challenges in this blog post.

Why an Attorney Can Increase the Value of Your Florida Car Accident Injury Claim

November 28, 2022

Florida law requires car accident victims to file a claim against their own insurance for injuries incurred in a collision with another driver.  However, an injured motorist still has the right to pursue a personal injury settlement or lawsuit against a negligent driver when the damages exceed that of the injury victim’s coverage.  Injured motorists must first look to their own insurance before seeking damages from the other driver.  If the claim is only for property damage, such as vehicle replacement or repair, crash victims do not have to first pursue a claim against their own insurance carrier.  While a car accident injury victim may file a civil lawsuit against a negligent driver without a lawyer, effective legal representation can dramatically increase the value of a claim.

Preventing Distracted Driving Means More Than Turning Off Cell Phones

November 21, 2022

Nearly every state has enacted texting and driving laws, yet NHTSA estimates that more than 354,000 drivers per day hold their cell phone to their ear during daytime hours.  Many more motorists use their cell phones for texting, searching the web, reading, playing games, and other activities.  While this data explains attempts to curb cell phone use by drivers, this myopic view has diverted attention from other dangerous forms of distracted driving.

Unsafe Driving Practices Contributing to Increased Pedestrian Fatalities

November 21, 2022

Despite improvements in traffic safety, pedestrian fatalities continue to rise at an alarming rate in recent years.  While all other forms of traffic fatalities rose by 13% between 2010 and 2020, pedestrian fatalities rose by a staggering 54 percent during the same period.  According to a new report from the Governors Highway Safety Association (GHSA), projections based on data from the first half of 2021 indicate that pedestrian traffic fatalities for the entire year will reach a 40-year high. While the number of pedestrian deaths in Florida dropped from 745 in 2019 to 716 in 2020, the preliminary calculation indicates that this number surged to 889 in 2021.  Florida’s rise in pedestrian deaths from 2020 to 2021 constituted the largest year-to-year increase in the nation.  Florida and Texas were the only states in the U.S. that experienced an increase of over 100 pedestrian deaths during this period.

Three Reasons You Need an Experienced Trucking Accident Attorney

November 21, 2022

Trucking accidents often cause catastrophic injuries and fatalities.  A fully loaded tractor-trailer can weigh over twenty times the average passenger car.  This enormous disparity in weight means that occupants of passenger vehicles tend to fare poorly in collisions with commercial trucks.  Collisions involving big rigs differ significantly from other types of motor vehicle accidents in ways other than the overwhelming size of one of the vehicles.  Because trucking accidents raise special issues, a victim of a negligent commercial driver and/or an indifferent trucking company benefits from retaining an experienced trucking accident injury lawyer.  

Impact of the Florida Move Over Law on First Responder Accident Claims

November 21, 2022

Despite the warning provided by lights and sirens when responding to a fire, crime or other emergency, first responders sometimes cause car accidents when traveling at a high rate of speed.  Based on National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) data, more people die in high-speed police chases each year than floods, hurricanes, tornadoes, and lightning combined.  Ambulances alone account for approximately 6,5000 collisions per year according to the NHTSA.  Approximately 35 percent of these crashes cause death or injury to at least one person. If you have been injured in a collision with an emergency vehicle, an experienced New York attorney can evaluate your situation and explain your legal rights.
