As traffic continues to increase, so too does the number of dangerous car accidents. Drivers owe everyone on the road a duty of care that extends to following the rules of the road and to driving safely in relation to the condition of the road and to the traffic on it. Drivers who fail to do so are often the cause of life-threatening car accidents.
If someone else’s negligence leaves you injured in a car accident, 388CEDA offers comprehensive medical care and pain management to help you on your journey toward healing, and if you request that we do so, we can also recommend an experienced car accident lawyer in Miramar who can help you take on the insurance company in pursuit of compensation that covers your damages in their entirety.
Your car accident won’t be exactly like anyone else’s, but there are several types of car accidents that are most common.
Motorists are responsible for paying attention to the road and traffic ahead and to responding safely to whatever they come across. When a forward car is required to unexpectedly stop or slow down (due to an accident or anything else on the road ahead) and the rear driver is traveling too closely and/or is too distracted to react in time, it can lead to a dangerous rear-end accident.
T-bone accidents are those accidents in which a car plows directly into the side of another vehicle. These accidents are most common in intersections (where traffic traveling in all directions converges), and they are often exceptionally dangerous.
When a motorist ends up traveling the wrong way on a road, street, or highway, it sets the stage for a life-threatening head on collision. These car accidents are exactly as deadly and as terrifying as they sound.
Sideswipe accidents refer to those accidents in which a car swipes against the side of another vehicle (often while attempting to change lanes without taking the appropriate care to ensure that it is safe to do so). Sideswipe accidents can push the car that’s hit into another lane of traffic and, thereby, compound the danger involved.
The vast majority of car accidents are caused by driver negligence (in one form or another). Drivers who fail to take the duty of care they owe everyone else on the road seriously enough leave us all at increased risk.
Drunk drivers can suffer all of the following impairments:
The greater the level of impairment, the greater the danger involved, and any one of these impairments can lead to serious car accidents.
Motorists who get behind the wheel when they have had too little sleep can be as dangerous as impaired drivers – and they experience some of the same forms of impairment. Drowsy drivers are dangerous drivers who shouldn’t get behind the wheel in the first place.
The only way to drive safely is to focus one’s complete attention on the road ahead and to adhere to the rules of the road. Distracted drivers have a nearly impossible time doing either. The deadliest distraction out there is texting, and it plays far too critical a role in far too many car accidents.
The faster you drive, the more likely you are to be in an accident and the more likely it is that the accident will be fatal. Those motorists who think speed limits are not intended for them make our roadways far more dangerous for everyone who travels on them. What’s more, driving at a safe speed is relative. The speed limit only applies in ideal conditions, and drivers are responsible for adjusting their speed in accordance with the condition of the road, the effects of inclement weather on the road, and anything else that affects their driving.
Car accidents happen, and they are often the direct result of driver negligence. If you’ve been injured in such an accident, don’t wait to seek the medical care you need. Because regaining your health and well-being is so critical, 388CEDA offers a comprehensive array of medical treatment and pain management to car accident victims like you.
