While we typically hear about more teen car crashes during the summer months, they can happen any time of year.  There are a variety of reasons for the seemingly excessive teen crashes including the inexperience of new drivers and also the riskier behavior in which teens tend to engage.  This riskier behavior also applies to driving and that can result in a serious or even deadly car accident. When a plaintiff is killed a car wreck, or dies later as a result of the injuries sustained in the serious accident, this can lead to the need to file a wrongful death lawsuit pled under a theory of negligence.  This is not only true of teen drivers, but also young adults.

According to a recent news article from TC Palm, an eighth-grade student was killed in a fatal car accident at the end of the 2017/2018 academic-year winter break. The victim’s mother said her son was on his last day of the winter break and was complaining of being bored.  He wanted to go out for a ride even though it was raining hard.  There was no destination in mind so he was looking to go for a joyride as kids often like to do.  Continue reading →

We often use the terms car “accident.” However, in reality, the term crash would probably be more appropriate.  The reason for this is because when we think of an accident in the non-legal sense, we tend to think of something that just happens and can’t be avoided – something that is nobody’s fault.

However, we know most car accidents are someone’s fault, and the accident occurred due to negligence of the at-fault driver, and, had the driver been more careful, the accident could probably have been avoided. Continue reading →

When you are injured in a serious crash, it’s important not to negotiate with the at-fault driver’s insurance company until you have spoken with an injury attorney. Victims of major auto accidents may be entitled to a substantial amount of damages, and signing off too early could result in forfeiting money you’re owed.

According to a recent news report from CBS 12, a firefighter from Fort Lauderdale was seriously injured in a car crash in West Palm Beach, Florida. This serious car crash occurred on Northlake Boulevard near Coconut Avenue.

Authorities have said victim was driving his personal vehicle in the Palm Beach Gardens area, and was only a few miles away from his home.   He was on his way home from a long shift at his fire station in Fort Lauderdale when he was allegedly rear-ended by another driver.  The force of the collision was so significant that it caused his car to hit a tree and roll over.

There is an erroneous stereotype that holds old drivers are bad drivers.

The reality, however, is quite the opposite. A new report issued by the Insurance Institute for Traffic Safety indicates drivers over the age of 65, when compared to other age groups, are less likely to text and drive, more likely wear to their seat belts and rarely drink and drive.

That makes them among the safest drivers on the road. However, they are more likely to be killed if involved in a crash. The reasons for that are nuanced and individual circumstances often have much to do with it. It’s worth analyzing though, particularly as we consider that within the next decade, 25 percent of all drivers in the U.S. will be 65 or older.
