Ft. Lauderdale personal injury attorneys provide insight on the perils of distractions ahead of Memorial Day.   There are many reports online that deal with distracted driving. Indeed, during the past several years, as cell phone use has grown to become less of a privilege and more of a necessity, and with more apps and features offered on cell phones, their presence in the car, in a driver’s hands and at a driver’s ear, has made our lives more perilous as we take to Fort Lauderdale’s roads. With Memorial Day around the corner, and with all the distractions that this holiday causes, from parties and barbecues to meeting friends and family, distracted driving is on our mind – and should be on yours, too. Here’s why:  Distracted driving is one of the most dangerous situations for drivers and can result…

A pain and suffering car accident is, unfortunately, a part of life and very few of us have been able to drive free of problems on the road, whether being involved in a slight fender-bender or a major highway car accident, or even becoming a witness to the aftermath of a major car accident. With major highways converging in the Ft. Lauderdale area, and the high numbers of snowbirds and tourists coming into our towns during the winter, the roads become crammed with cars, and car accidents are bound to happen. Getting back behind the wheel can be psychologically stressful for some, an anxiety-inducing action that causes us to experience and develop post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). Anxiety after a car accident, especially one in Fort Lauderdale that has caused personal injury, can hinder somebody’s ability to function and can alter…

Do you know what to do after a Ft. Lauderdale car crash? Seek medical help – then seek out an expert in personal injury At the scene of a car crash, it may be difficult to assess what happened, especially if you have been seriously injured. The driver at fault, the extent of injuries – both personal and to physical property – all of it sometimes takes a back seat to what is of the most immediate concern: getting yourself and passengers and anyone else who may have been injured, medical attention. When the ambulance pulls away, and the tow wreckers have done their job, bits and pieces of the car crash accident scene disappear so that, in a few days, there may be no evidence of a car crash left. That’s why we write blogs, to inform the public…

For some, their cell phones are their lifelines and a separation can cause withdrawal. That’s not a joke – research has shown that addiction to cell phones takes on characteristics very similar to other kinds of addiction. This becomes particularly scary when the cell phone is the other passenger in the car, one which needs constant attention from the driver. Like other addicts, cell phone addicts believe they have it all under control. In fact, according to an article on psychguides.com, “Many people believe that they can multitask and use their phones while driving, but this causes significant impairment and puts the driver and others on the road in danger.” Research shows that texting and driving, and cell phone use in general behind the wheel, is just as dangerous as drinking and driving. Of course, the cell phone has become…

Accidents – The roads and highways are congested around Ft. Lauderdale – bicyclists, distracted drivers, drivers turning against red lights, pedestrians walking across the highway and not paying attention themselves – it all makes for an environment ripe for hazards. You may think that you can handle your case alone when it comes to facing insurance companies after a car accident injury. Here’s why you shouldn’t. First of all, the severity of your injuries need to be assessed and documented by a doctor, so he or she can determine the type and extent of injury and how much time it will take to heal. Future medical procedures, possible therapeutic rehabilitation programs, and their associated costs should also be determined. Perhaps you have sustained severe neck or back injury that requires weekly chiropractic visits or the necessity of extensive physical therapy.…

One of the trickier traffic maneuvers for drivers in South Florida is negotiating the U-turn in heavily traveled intersections. Intersections represent one of the most dangerous areas for drivers, pedestrians and bicyclists –  with people turning right, going straight, heading right on red and, of course, making U-turns. A driver’s eyes have only seconds to scan the entire scene before heading forward – many times, it’s an accident waiting to happen. The personal injury that could result from such accidents can have significant effects the same day, weeks or months and years after the incident. The simple truth is that injury is a reality of life, and a personal injury protection attorney in Ft. Lauderdale can help pave the way for injured parties to receive the compensation they deserve. But the best sort of accident prevention is always anticipation of…

Edmunds.com has some good advice for motorists when it comes to driving on crowded roadways and avoiding car crashes. It would seem a simple thing to reason – you avoid car crashes by concentrating on the road and keeping your hands off of devices that distract your attention, don’t you? Of course you do, but that’s not all that you have to consider. As the Edmunds article attests, avoiding a car accident is more than looking both ways before heading through an intersection. That is good advice, but there are many more aspects of driving that need to be considered, particularly modern driving, in which distractions are much greater for people behind the wheel. The personal injury you suffer in a car accident could reverberate across a lifetime and any personal injury attorney will attest that avoiding motor vehicle accidents…

Walking is one of the most pleasurable activities – the elderly, children, families, kids out playing – we all walk and sometimes we walk on busy streets. An unfortunate fact of life is that we will interact with motor vehicles at some point – crossing the street or walking on the road – and those vehicles are operated by distracted or impatient drivers. Personal injury doesn’t only occur to those who drive and crash – it also happens to pedestrians. On its website, The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention notes that pedestrians, defined as people who travel by foot, wheelchair, stroller, or similar means, “are among the most vulnerable users of the road.” According to the CDC website: “In the next 24 hours, on average, 430 people will be treated in an emergency department for traffic-related pedestrian injuries,” and…
