Motor Vehicle Accidents Archives

Changing traffic patterns and motor vehicle accidents

Traffic patterns change all the time. Vehicles can be moving along smoothly on Florida's highways one minute, and the next they come to a dead stop. If drivers fail to remain vigilant and keep with the flow of traffic, motor vehicle accidents could be the result.

Even road shoulders aren't safe from motor vehicle accidents

Numerous Florida residents use the shoulders of the state's highways and turnpikes to pull out of traffic. Whether a vehicle breaks down or one of its occupants requires the stop, people often assume that the shoulder is a safe place to be since it does not lie directly in the lane of travel. Unfortunately, many motor vehicle accidents occur in this area, and lives are lost.

Motor vehicle accidents aren't on vacation intineraries

After planning, packing and preparing, the last thing anyone wants is for a vacation to be ruined by a car crash. Sadly, far too many vacations end in motor vehicle accidents. Undoubtedly, a stay in the hospital with serious injuries was not on the itinerary.

Motor vehicle accidents involving children seem to expand grief

When it comes to children, Florida communities tend to mourn their loss a little more. To see a young life ended before it even has a chance to begin seems to make the grieving process worse. When those deaths occur suddenly such as in motor vehicle accidents, shock adds to the loss.

Chain reaction motor vehicle accidents challenge investigators

Florida's interstates and highways always seem to be packed, especially during the daylight hours. The sheer number of vehicles on these roadways during many motor vehicle accidents makes it astonishing that the media does not report more pileups. Fortunately, chain reaction crashes do not seem to happen as often as two-vehicle accidents. Unfortunately, this makes them a challenge for investigators due to the large number of vehicles and victims involved.

Drivers need to stay aware to avoid motor vehicle accidents

Even driving on one of Florida's interstates does not guarantee that drivers will not have to stop or significantly slow down, depending on the traffic. In order to avoid motor vehicle accidents, drivers need to stay aware of the traffic patterns and the appearance of any obstacles. When they fail to remain diligent, serious injuries and/or deaths could occur.

Florida's highways see many fatal motor vehicle accidents

Each year, numerous people lose their lives on Florida's interstates, highways and byways. These fatal motor vehicle accidents not only take the lives of innocent victims, but also often change their families forever. Those responsible for these crashes often face criminal charges, along with civil actions from surviving family members.

The inexperience of teens could lead to motor vehicle accidents

One of the most exciting times in the lives of Florida teens is when they get their driver's licenses. Even the most diligent teen driver still lacks experience, however. This could cause serious or fatal motor vehicle accidents that could jeopardize or end their futures, along with the futures of anyone else involved.

Distracted driving: Not just a problem for non-commercial drivers

Trucks are incredibly important to the American economy, and the individuals who drive these large commercial vehicles play a vital role in transporting goods across the country. Due to the large size and heavy weight of these semi trucks and other types of commercial vehicles, it remains a priority for these Florida drivers to remain vigilant and drive cautiously.

Some motor vehicle accidents result in multiple deaths

The Florida Highway Patrol routinely investigates crashes involving fatalities. Any loss of life is unacceptable, but in some of the motor vehicle accidents they respond to, multiple lives are lost. In at least some of those wrecks, the driver believed to be responsible dies as well, and everyone else involved either dies or suffers injuries serious enough to warrant a trip to the hospital.
