Florida Distracted Driving Accidents Are Causing Serious Injury and Death
It's a fact, every day, numerous auto accidents occur. Unfortunately today, auto accidents are extremely common because drivers have more distractions than ever from things like portable electronics, tweeting, texting, emailing, Facebook© and Foursquare©. These new world distractions cause drivers to pay more attention to staying connected and less attention to driving their automobile.
Aside from cellphones and smartphones and Bluetooth, distracted driving can also involve drivers eating fast food in their cars while driving, as well as putting on make-up or changing the music selection or checking the GPS for directions.
In April 2012 a new study was released by the University of Washington confirming that some drivers get distracted and become dangerous on the road when they are merely anticipating getting calls or messages or texts while they are driving. For some, the study shows, even thinking they may get a call or a text means the risk of a crash on a Florida road increases.
These auto accidents may involve cars, trucks, SUVs, minivans, buses, motorcycles, bicycles, and pedestrians. It is disheartening to know that auto accidents are responsible for an enormous amount of serious injuries and fatalities that occur within the state of Florida. Even sadder is the fact that many of these accidents are preventable and crashes only occur because drivers were negligent or reckless. As a public service and for those who like numbers, Alan has prepared a summary of Broward County accident crash data, to show how prevalent car crahes are in our county.
Wrongful deaths from distracted driving are some of the most tragic types of accident claims, so easily preventable that they have become as senseless and tragic as drunk driving accidents that end up in the death of innocent people in Florida drunk driving DUI crashes.
According to the Florida Department of Motor Vehicles, for example, in 2009 statewide there were 20,085 alcohol related traffic accidents resulting in 1,004 deaths and 14,130 injuries.
According to the National Highway Safety Traffic Administration, in 2008 there were 500,000 car crashes caused by distracted driving, and 6000 Americans died as a result.
It has been estimated that distracted driving is the cause of 20% of all motor vehicle accidents.
In the state of Florida, if an auto accident injury has resulted because another person was negligent, compensation can be collected for the car crash. Damages from auto crashes total $150 billion annually. Compensation for your losses can include monetary damages for medical expenses, injuries, property damage, lost earning potential, pain and suffering, and emotional distress. The smartest step a person can take after being involved in an auto accident is to consult with a skilled auto accident attorney.
