What should I do if I see a drunk driver?

Modern vehicles have safety features that were unheard of just a generation earlier. Airbags, automatic breaking, seat belt pretensioners and whiplash-reducing headrests are just a few features that are becoming standard to reduce injuries in a car accident. However, you might agree that the features which help you avoid an accident may be far more valuable.

What to expect from a truck accident settlement

Truck accident victims in Florida will want to know what their options are when it comes to receiving damages. They can go through the civil court with a personal injury lawsuit against the responsible trucking company or strive for an informal settlement. While a settlement will bring in less than what a successful suit would award, it could still cover past medical expenses, lost income during the physical recovery and pain and suffering.

NHTSA launches distracted driving advertising campaign

Distracted driving accidents in Florida and around the country claimed the lives of 3,477 road users in 2015, according to figures from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. Studies suggest that about 660,000 drivers use mobile electronic devices during daylight hours. While smartphones and vehicle information, entertainment and navigation systems are considered by most road safety experts to be the primary cause of the alarming increase in distracted driving accidents, researchers have found that speaking with passengers is even more distracting for motorists.

Speeding can quickly increase the chance of an auto accident

As a Florida resident, you know that certain times of year bring tourists and visitors to the state. This means there are more drivers on the road, which could lead to an increase in the number of car accidents. Unfortunately, many of these drivers navigate unfamiliar roads too quickly, and speeding plays a role in a significant number of motor vehicle accidents.
