Drugged driving and the threat to Florida drivers

Just like the consumption of alcohol or the use of a cellphone while behind the wheel, using drugs before operating a motor vehicle can have deadly consequences. Drugged driving is just as dangerous as distracted or drunk driving, and innocent Florida residents may pay the price for this type of negligent and irresponsible behavior.

The potentially deadly consequences of speeding

It's the time of year when everyone is in a hurry. From work obligations to traveling to see family on the holidays, it seems like everyone has more to do and more places to be. As a result, many drivers face the increased temptation to speed. While speeding may make a person feel like he or she will get to his or her destination faster, that is not the case. It is not really faster to speed, but it is significantly more dangerous.

Work to remain alert in construction zones

No matter where you are driving, you likely want to get to your destination in a timely and efficient manner. You may try to plan ahead and schedule your day so that you can accomplish all the tasks you need to do. As you drive, you may feel as if you will have the ability to accomplish everything you had hoped when suddenly you hit traffic.

Put down the burger: The dangers of eating while driving

Florida readers know that distracted driving is a major threat to the safety and well-being of every individual on the roads. Drivers and passengers are not the only people who face the dangers involved with this type of negligent behavior; pedestrians and cyclists are also at risk. Although people often associate distraction with cell phones, there are other very dangerous types of distracted driving.

Could dram shop liability play a role in your case?

Drunk driving is both inexcusable and irresponsible, and innocent people are often the ones who suffer because of this type of behavior. If you suffered harm because of a drunk driver, you have the right to seek compensation for your pain and suffering, as well as your accident-related financial losses. 

Bicyclists may want to be on the lookout for potential hazards

Bicycling can have many benefits as well as act as an enjoyable activity for any Florida resident in which to participate. You may wish to use this method of travel to get to your various destinations, or you could simply enjoy getting out for a ride in the open air. Whatever reason for your riding, you certainly want to avoid potential hazards as best as possible.

Seeking damages for the damage you suffered in a car accident

In some cases, serious car accidents result in more than just a serious injury. Some of these accidents lead to injuries that are actually disabling, forever changing the life of a Florida accident victim. If you are dealing with a temporary or permanent disability after an accident, you would be wise to learn about the types of damages that may be available to you. 

Is insurance refusing to work with you after your car accident?

Were you in an auto collision that was not your fault? If you were, you likely expect the other driver's insurance to take care of you. If the other driver is uninsured, you certainly expect your own insurance to help you cover the losses you experienced in the car accident. Unfortunately, many Florida residents may find that insurance providers are only willing to pay out the bare minimum. If that happens to you, you do not have to take it.
