Car accidents are often preventable, but still happen when a driver is negligent, speeding, runs a red light, fails to stop at a stop sign. Florida Law requires drivers to operate their vehicles with reasonable care. When a motorist fails to follow any of Florida’s traffic laws or acts negligently, they may be held responsible for the crash they caused, and the damages suffered by the occupant of another car or the pedestrian they strike. Some of the most frequently occurring car accidents include speeding, disregard of traffic signals and failing to follow another vehicle at a safe distance. The injuries caused by Florida car accidents include fractures, back injuries, including paralysis.Drunk Driving Accidents
Drunk driving accidents happen at an increasingly high rate. Florida’s legal limit is .08, meaning as few as 2 drinks can cause a motorist to be reckless and cause a car accident. When a motorist is intoxicated, they have delayed reaction times and fail to timely recognize the speed and movement of other vehicles. When a drunk driver causes a crash, in addition to being responsible for the pain and suffering they cause, they may also be liable for punitive damages, which are meant to punish them for their reckless behavior. A car accident attorney in Fort Lauderdale can help a victim pursue all the appropriate types of damages.Distracted Driving Accidents
Distracted drivers cause more car accidents than most any other negligent act. Sending an email, reading a text or even looking at a map causes a driver to become a danger to other motorists. Florida Law now prohibits texting while driving, because when a driver is distracted and not looking at the road ahead, they can travel 30 – 50 feet down the road before they see anyone in front of them. When a driver causes a car accident while using a smartphone and is not watching where their vehicle is going, they are responsible for the damages and injuries they cause.Uninsured Motorist Accidents
Uninsured motorists cause many accidents across Florida. Florida is one of the few states that does not require drivers to buy liability insurance. This means, if an uninsured or underinsured driver causes an accident and seriously injures someone, the injured person may have no recourse or ability to be compensated for their damages. The exception to this rule is if the injured victim has uninsured motorist coverage on their own insurance policy. If the injured driver or pedestrian has a car insurance policy with uninsured motorist coverage, their own insurance company pretends they provide liability insurance to the other driver. Uninsured motorist coverage is the most valuable insurance coverage Florida motorist can buy.Car Accident Lawyer Serving Fort Lauderdale
