Impaired Drivers Are a Disproportionate Cause of Roadway Fatalities

We all know that driving while impaired is dangerous and sometimes fatal, but accidents involving drunk and drugged driving continue to happen. Though they were a fraction of the more than 400,000 crashes that occurred on Florida roadways in 2017, they were much more likely to result in fatalities. According to the Florida Department of […]

Florida Aims to Save Lives by Preventing Wrong-Way Crashes

Two Florida wrong-way crashes within the span of two days resulted in two deaths in October 2018. Over a seven-month stretch in 2014, 11 people were killed in wrong-way crash accidents. Too many other innocent people have had their lives claimed or have suffered serious injuries due to the actions of negligent drivers in the […]

Florida DUI Deaths Are Down, but Drug Influenced Fatalities Rise

When You Suffer a Slipped Disc Injury in an Auto Accident

Your spine consists of an array of bones (vertebrae) cushioned by rubbery discs wedged between them. When a disc becomes ruptured, fluids leak out and deplete the cushion, putting pressure on the nerves in the spine. This syndrome, known as a herniated disc or “slipped disc,” can be the result of physical trauma or excessive […]

Florida Beats Its Record for Buckling Up, But There’s Room for Improvement

Good news: Now more than ever, Floridians traveling the state’s roadways are looking out for themselves and for each other by fastening their seat belts.  In its “June 2018 Safety Belt Use in Florida” report, the Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) announced that the statewide safety belt usage rate has climbed to 90.6 percent, beating […]

Under the law, all drivers, front seat passengers and passengers under 18 must wear seatbelts, and police officers can pull over drivers for not buckling up. Anyone in […]

In Florida, Drivers Must Stay at the Scene After an Accident

Historically, Florida has had major problems with hit-and-run accidents. Year after year, about 25 percent of all crashes that occur in the state involve a driver leaving the scene. While most of these hit-and-run crashes only result in damaged vehicles or property, they can be deadly in some cases. Florida Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles […]
