Car Accidents Archives

Do you know the most common car accident injuries?

A car accident has the potential to cause a variety of injuries, some minor and others life-threatening. Regardless of how you feel in the immediate aftermath of a crash, it's critical to receive medical treatment. This is the only way to understand your injuries, implement a treatment plan and come to grips with your long-term prognosis.

Rideshare accidents can lead to legal quagmire

The rideshare system allows a convenient way to get around town. Those who need a ride can simply pull up an Uber, Lyft or other rideshare app and request a ride. Once they confirm the driver arrives, they can make it to their destination with minimal hassle -- unless there is an accident.

Florida’s new distracted driving law went into effect Oct. 1

Florida lawmakers are taking their fight against distracted driving to new levels. The state recently passed a law that makes driving in an active construction zone or in a school zone while using a hand-held phone a primary offense. This means enforcement officers can pull drivers over and issue a ticket for violating this law. 

What Happens When An Uber Or Lyft Driver Hits Someone?

Uber, Lyft and other ridesharing services are becoming increasingly popular. Instead of renting a car in a new city or navigating public transportation, many people just pull out their phones and summon a ride with a tap. Not only is it often cheaper than a traditional cab ride, but it's just as convenient, if not more so.

Drivers With ADHD May Be More Likely To Cause An Auto Accident

If your teen driver has been diagnosed with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), it is extremely important to ensure that they are taking the right medicine to treat the condition in order to avoid a Tampa auto accident. Without managing the symptoms of ADHD, adolescents could be much more likely to cause an auto accident than other teen drivers who do not have ADHD, according to a study published in JAMA Pediatrics. An article in CNN discusses the study, and provides more information for families and motorists in West Central Florida who need to recognize the risks surrounding teen driving crashes and ADHD.

How prevalent is distracted driving? More than you think

The epidemic of distracted driving is putting drivers in Florida and throughout the country at risk. Safety officials are making a concerted effort to get people to put their phones away while driving. There is good reason for this focus on distracted driving as estimates find that more than a quarter of all collisions stem from cell phone use. That number does not account for all the other distracted behaviors drivers engage in when behind the wheel.
