NHTSA report shows decline in roadway deaths for 2018

After a decades-long decline in motor vehicle accident deaths, 2015 saw a spike in these numbers. Florida residents should know, however, that 2017 and 2018 both saw a decrease, small though it was. There were 37,133 fatalities in 2017, which represented a 2% decrease from 2016. That number went down to 36,750 in 2018, according to a preliminary report that the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration released in June 2019.

Negligence often important in bicycle accident cases

Bicycle accidents often result in serious injuries and can sometimes be fatal. Lawsuits in Florida to pursue damages from biking crashes with cars raise many of the same issues as motor vehicle accidents generally. In many cases, the question of liability comes down to negligence, whether the bicyclist was negligent and whether the driver of the car's negligence led to the accident. Like motor vehicle drivers, bicyclists are obligated to obey traffic laws and other rules of the road.

Do dram shop laws apply to your injury case?

The state of Florida sees more than its fair share of drunk driving accidents. Numerous people face injuries in such events every year. If you have fallen victim to a drunk driver, you probably already know you may seek compensation for any damages sustained by filing civil claims against the responsible party. Did you know you may also file claims against the establishment that over-served him or her? Dram shop laws allow for this.

What to do after a truck accident

Statistics show that large truck accidents are an increasingly common occurrence on Florida roadways. Because of the massive size of commercial big rigs, these accidents tend to cause more damage, injuries and deaths than accidents involving passenger vehicles. They can also be a major hassle to deal with in terms of insurance claims because multiple parties, including the truck driver and the trucking company, are often involved in the claims process.
