Many motor vehicle accidents are caused by a loss of control

A variety of factors can cause drivers to lose control of their vehicles. It is up to law enforcement officials here in Florida and elsewhere to determine what those factors are during their investigations. The details are often what determine whether charges will be filed -- and what charges could be filed -- against the drivers believed to be responsible in motor vehicle accidents.

Mechanical failures can cause fatal motor vehicle accidents

Every Florida driver is responsible for maintaining his or her vehicle. However, not all mechanical failures can be foreseen and can happen at any time. Whether predictable or unpredictable, mechanical issues cause drivers to lose control of their vehicles and cause serious or fatal motor vehicle accidents.

Large motor vehicle accidents often result in serious injuries

Commercial buses, school buses and tractor-trailers are big and heavy. This means that when they are involved in motor vehicle accidents, the potential for serious or fatal injuries is often greater than in crashes that only involve passenger cars, SUVs and pickup trucks. For example, a recent Florida crash on U.S. Highway 98 involving an old school bus and an 18-wheeler resulted in the death of five people, and approximately 25 people suffered a variety of injuries.

Tesla's auto pilot could be a factor in motor vehicle accidents

As the automotive manufacturing industry makes advances, a company called Tesla has released a car that has an auto pilot feature. However, until it becomes more commonplace and the kinks are worked out of it, that feature could be a factor in motor vehicle accidents across the country. One of the first took place here in Florida back in May.
