Motor vehicle crashes occur for numerous reasons. Some car accidents are preventable while others may be simply beyond a driver's control. When an accident is preventable, it usually occurs due to the negligence of one or more drivers. Negligent drivers typically are responsible for the costs of the accident and can be held liable, depending on individual crash circumstances. Authorities believe that a recent Florida accident was preventable and report that alcohol likely contributed to the deadly crash.
Smartphones have changed our lives. A smartphone connects users to friends, family and the world through all the applications available for use. Unfortunately, studies have shown that use of a phone while driving can result in increased chances of car accidents. One Florida driver allegedly admitted that his recent accident was due to distraction by his cell phone.
It could be said that there are more distractions around us than ever before. The volume of traffic on the roads, radios, notification alerts or calls on cell phones and other roadside distractions can easily divert a driver's attention off of the road. Unfortunately, a momentary diversion can result in horrific and tragic car accidents. Sadly, a recent collision with a Florida school bus has resulted in one man's death and injuries to others.
Companies such as Tesla are introducing new motor vehicle technology on roadways. Although new technology often advances transportation and introduces new solutions to traditional fuel-operated vehicles, new issues may arise when used in everyday life. The National Transportation Safety Board recently launched an investigation involving one of Florida's recent fatal car accidents that involved a new Tesla vehicle.
High school seniors all across the country are nearing their graduation. There is excitement, fear and hope for the new future they anticipate beginning. Car accidents are not in the plans of graduates or their families, but they do occur. Unfortunately, accidents wreak havoc in a multitude of ways on the victim's lives and anyone connected to the victims. Sadly, an entire Florida community has been impacted by an accident involving three high school seniors just weeks before their graduation.
