Negligent Acts That Result In Car And Truck Accidents

People are on the roadways at all hours of the day. Thus, a person would be hard-pressed to find a specific time when no vehicles are on Florida highways, streets, or roads. Why? For one, not all residents work typical 9 to 5 workdays. Rather, many folks work unorthodox shifts or odd hours. Hence, they have to drive to their work whenever they are called upon to earn a living. Additionally, many cities in the Sunshine State such as Miami and Fort Lauderdale are the places to be for the night scene.

Thus, night club hoppers can be found on the streets driving from one club to the next on any given day. Also, one can't forget about tractor-trailers. These big-rigs are continually on the roadways making sure that their deliveries arrive at their destinations on time. All these examples simply show that vehicle operators are out and about during the day and night in Florida. Therefore, it stands to reason that a person could become involved in an auto accident at any given moment.

Some Useful Stats

According to Population USA, Florida has the third largest population in the nation. Over 20.6 million people call the state home. Meanwhile, the Florida Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles states that there were 15,688,900 registered autos and pickups in the state as of 5/5/2019. Plus, the study reveals that there were 1,485,707 heavy trucks, 60,266 buses, and 624,056 motorcycles registered at the time too. In other words, these statistics show that there are a lot of vehicles here.

A Few Negligent Acts That Can Lead To Wrecks


Speed limit signs are in place for a reason. They are not suggestions, but rather, they are designed to keep people safe while behind the wheel. However, it is not uncommon for a person to be obeying the speed limit on let's say I-75 only to have other vehicles passing them like they are sitting still.

Traveling fast increases one's risk of getting into an accident. They may not be able to stop in time if traffic stops in front of them abruptly. Then again, the individual could merely lose control due to the increased acceleration. Speeding is a negligent act that may contribute to persons finding themselves entangled in a lawsuit.

Texting And Driving

There are billboards, commercials, blog posts, and more telling people the dangers of texting and driving. Yet, many individuals still attempt the feat regularly. According to, texting drivers usually glance away from the road for about 5 seconds. If the vehicle is going 55 mph, it can travel the length of a football field in that span. During that time, the operator could rear-end or T-bone another car. Heck, they may even swerve into another lane and side-swipe someone else's vehicle. This is another example of a negligent act that can cause a person to find themselves in hot water.


Client Testimonials

Attorney David Goldman has been exceptional in the process of helping me through the case. He has always been easy to reach, whether by phone or email, and has thorough knowledge and explains clearly in depth so you feel safe and confident in your lawyer

I used Michael Babboni and his paralegal, Nicole Moore for a legal matter. They went above and beyond my expectations. During the entire process there was constant communication with both Michael and Nicole. They were extremely organized and on top of my case, which I am very grateful for. Michael truly had my best interests at heart and he was very genuine. I plan on referring Michael to all family and friends and will continue to use him in the future.

I dealt most with Mr. Fernandez. I didn’t know a lot about this process. He took the time to speak with me individually, in person, to explain everything. It was very helpful to actually know and understand the process and what to expect. He closed my case quickly, which was nice that it was not prolonged! I appreciated his hard work and getting me what I felt I deserved after my car accident. I highly recommend him to anyone who needs an honest and reliable lawyer to assist you with your case!

I hired Mr. Walsh after an automobile accident this past March. He and his entire staff were extremely professional. They kept me informed every step of the way and settled my case in a timely manner. Thank you so much for your help.
