Avoiding Car Accidents this Winter

Whether your family is staying in the Tampa Bay area or traveling out of town, it is important to learn more about safety tips for driving in Florida in the winter, as well as for avoiding car accidents if you are heading farther north into regions where you may encounter ice, snow, or other inclement weather conditions. Keep in mind that car accident prevention extends beyond avoiding hazardous atmospheric conditions. It also means being cognizant of the annual influx of drivers during the winter months, as well as an increase in drowsy drivers who have been on the road for too long. Do not forget that you should also take steps to avoid aggressive driving and drowsy driving yourself.

I was injured in a crash, what can I do about compensation?

You've been injured in a crash that was the direct result of someone else's negligence - it's understandable that you want to hold that person accountable for their actions.

Five reasons semi trucks pose a threat to motorcyclists

No matter where you travel in the state of Florida, you're bound to see a semi truck hauling its trailer either somewhere in state or out of state.

Has the recent rise in wrong-way crashes in the Tampa Bay area become a problem that will not soon go away? Last spring, a Hillsborough Sheriff's deputy suffered fatal injuries in a wrong-way collision on the Selmon Expressway, according to a report from WMNF 88.5, the Tampa area's listener-supported community radio station. In response to previous wrong-way crashes that have occurred in the area, "Wrong-Way Driver Alert" signs began appearing overhead on I-275, warning drivers in the St. Petersburg area of the serious risks of these dangerous car accidents.

Does Florida's texting while driving law do enough?

As much as people like to think that distracted driving is on the decline with the use of hands-free devices and automobile features that seem to allow a driver to stay focused on the road, there are still far too many accidents that occur every year as a result of cellphone use, texting and mobile devices.

What to do if you've been hurt in a hit-and-run crash

Getting into a car accident can be chaotic and troubling. Immediately, you may be shaken up and worried about your injuries and the damage to your car. To make matters worse, there are many cases around Florida where the other driver involved in the accident decides to flee the scene.

'Elderly' woman speeds into stopped traffic; father, baby killed

Getting older usually involves a gradual deterioration of one’s physical abilities. Even when one’s mind remains sharp in old age -- certainly not guaranteed -- it is natural for eyesight to fade and reflexes to slow. Eventually, it may be necessary from a safety standpoint to give up the car keys.

Seeking compensation after a crash: complicated but crucial

Every day, there are hundreds of car accidents that happen across Florida, from minor fender-benders to catastrophic crashes on the highway.
