The minutes following a car accident can be crucial

Many Florida drivers will be involved in a motor vehicle accident at some time, and how they behave in the minutes immediately following a collision can have a great bearing on how their insurance claims are handled. The actions taken at the scene of a crash can also influence the outcome of car accident lawsuits. Experts say that the most important thing motorists can do after a collision is remain calm, but this can be difficult when nerves are frayed and tempers are short.

Are you a victim of an accident along Interstate 75?

Florida is one of the most populous states in the United States, and millions of residents and tourists drive down Interstate 75 every year. This particular interstate is crowded all the time, and it is also one of the most dangerous places to drive in the state. Every year, I-75 sees an inordinately high number of serious and fatal accidents. 

The most frequent causes of truck accidents

The weight and longer stopping distance of large trucks make them a dangerous presence on the road. However, residents of Florida should know that most collisions with large trucks are the fault of passenger vehicle drivers. That's why it's important to know the most common factors that lead to crashes.

The most frequent factors in car crashes

Florida residents should be aware that there are various causes of car crashes, most of them involving human error or negligence. One of the most common causes is distracted driving. This covers not just calling, texting or using a navigation system behind the wheel but also talking with passengers, eating, drinking and applying makeup.

Florida a dangerous state for pedestrians

Florida is the most dangerous state in the country for pedestrians, according to one study by Smart Growth America highlighting metropolitan areas that pose a particular threat to walkers. In fact, eight of the top 10 pedestrian-unfriendly cities in the country are located in the state. The survey brings together statistics about pedestrian fatalities, walking rates and other issues to compare various regions. The five most dangerous cities on the list were Orlando, Daytona, Palm Bay, Sarasota and Lakeland.

Pedestrians are more likely to suffer injury in Florida

There are many reasons why people want to travel by foot. Florida enjoys warm weather most of the year, and people often find it faster, cheaper and more enjoyable to walk to their destinations instead of drive. However, there are some risks involved with that. Florida is one of the most dangerous states for pedestrians.

Big rig crash fatalities continue to rise across U.S.

Florida readers may be concerned to learn that fatal large truck crashes have increased in every state except six over the last eight years, according to a new report by Road Safe America. As a result, the organization is pushing the federal government to pass laws requiring the use of speed limiters and automatic emergency braking systems in commercial trucks.
