Protecting Yourself from Wrong-Way Car Accidents

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.

If you were injured in a car accident, you may have more immediate concerns, such as medical bills and lost wages. Some of those costs may be covered by your own insurance, but justice also requires the negligent driver to be held accountable.

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.

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. Because of how common motor vehicle accidents are, it can be easy for people to think that they are no big deal or that any issues stemming from a crash will work themselves out.

Think you don't need a lawyer after a crash? Think again

Car accidents can happen in the blink of an eye. One second you may be heading home from work on a regular day and the next, you can be seriously hurt and your car can be crumpled up on the side of the road. In the aftermath of these accidents, you are likely focused on two things: getting medical help and fixing your car.

Florida Auto Accident Report

How often do auto accidents occur in Florida? And what causes deadly traffic collisions to happen? According to Florida Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles (FLHSMV), there are a number of different ways that we could help to prevent auto accidents on the highways around Brandon and throughout the state. The FLHSMV compiled a Florida Traffic Crash Statistics Report that helps to show areas where auto safety is improving in our state, as well as areas in which preventive measures might help to improve the rate of highway fatalities.

Why is distracted driving so dangerous?

For better or worse, the laws regarding cellphone use and driving in Florida are among the most lenient in the country, which means that drivers across this state aren't motivated to change distracted driving behaviors because of the civil penalties of getting a citation. However, they should still be motivated to put down the phone and focus on driving because of the potentially catastrophic damage that can be done in a distracted driving accident.
