How Common Are Car Accidents In Broward County?

Sadly, car accidents remain one of the leading causes of preventable deaths in the United States. It’s estimated that, in 2017, around 246 people lost their lives on the roads of Broward County. Though below the national average, this is still a terrible toll. It should be noted that this doesn’t take into account the number of traffic injuries that were received across this period.

What Are The Most Common Reasons For Car Accidents?

There are many reasons why a car accident might occur. However, there are a few common reasons why these crashes occur. First, one of the drivers could have been over the legal limit. This can make it harder to stop the vehicle in time.

In other cases, there might have been substances like drugs or alcohol involved. These can impair the judgment of the driver, making it harder for them to spot threats. Driving under the influence can also cause some people to make rash decisions, compromising the safety of all other road users.

Finally, accidents can be caused by a distracted driver. One of the most common ways that this happens is when people spend too much time on their phones, rather than focusing on the road ahead. Sadly, as technology becomes more advanced, this is becoming a leading cause of traffic accidents across the world.

Often, the circumstances in which the accident occurred are vital when preparing your case. Because of this, it’s recommended that you talk to a car accident lawyer. They’ll be able to decide the right way to move forward, giving you the best chance of getting a great outcome.
