Being in a car accident in Homestead or any Florida community can cause many physical symptoms, such as fractures, head trauma, back injuries, whiplash and other serious injuries. However, car crashes can also cause other, and less obvious injuries.

Traffic collisions are in fact closely associated with some mental health difficulties, including depression and post-traumatic stress disorder. If you already suffer from a mental illness, being in a traffic accident in Homestead or your community can exacerbate the condition.

This year, Britain’s Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh, gave up his driver’s license after getting into a car accident at age 97. When his news made headlines, it started many discussions about aging and driving safety. If you live in Hollywood or anywhere in South Florida, you may wonder whether you can continue to drive safely as you get older. Or, you may be worried about an older driver who seems to be struggling.

While many older drivers continue to drive safely and while as a group seniors have a lower rate of accidents, statistically, than young adults in many studies, there is no doubt that some of the health concerns associated with getting older can negatively impact driving. Decreased mobility due to osteoporosis and other conditions or declining vision due to age can impact the ability to safely drive a car.

Single-car accidents happen in Homestead and other Florida communities. These types of car crashes involve any situation where no other vehicle or pedestrian is involved. If you crash into a barrier, go into a ditch, or crash into any property without hitting anyone else, that is considered a single-vehicle accident.

In these collisions, there may not be another vehicle driving at full speed, but the impact can still be enough to cause serious or life-threatening injuries, especially if your own vehicle was going fast. If you crash into a solid barrier at a high speed or even go into a ditch, you could suffer from significant impact or a rollover.

Parking lot accidents in Homestead and across Florida do cause serious injury, even though they usually do not involve high speeds. Even slowed down to slip into a parking spot, multiple directions of traffic, close quarters, and a combination of pedestrian, car, and truck traffic can all spell danger for drivers.

Parking lot accidents lead to many types of injuries, including crushing injuries, head trauma, back injury, soft tissue injury, whiplash, and other injuries. You especially want to be careful in these zones of the parking lot:

Car accidents involving multiple cars increase your chance of injury, especially if the crash is a pileup or chain reaction collision in Homestead or your community. When you have multiple points of impact, you could be injured at any impact, meaning there are multiple risks. This type of crash also increases your risk of crush injuries if your car is one of the first or middle cars to be impacted.

Multiple-car accidents are caused by many factors. Often, these collisions occur on highways, especially in poor weather conditions where one car crashes into the next vehicle. These types of crashes are also more likely in high-traffic situations where cars are close together.

New studies about electric scooters show what many parents in Homestead and other communities already know: e-scooters are responsible for serious injuries. While popular, electric scooters caused thousands of injuries last year and there is growing concern about the life-threatening injuries possible with this mode of transportation.

Unfortunately, many injuries with these devices affect children under the age of 18. Common injuries include head trauma, fractures, facial abrasions, and other serious injuries. You can reduce your risk of collisions if you:

In Homestead and other communities, intersection accidents cause severe injuries each year. Unfortunately, intersections are a higher-risk area because cars are approaching from different directions and making turns. In addition, many road users, including pedestrians, converge in this area and in some cases visibility can be obscured by buildings, making collisions a real problem.

To stay safe and prevent intersections, there are several things motorists can do:

Rollovers happen when a car turns over on its side or its roof during a crash. In some cases, these collisions cause the vehicle to turn all the way over to rest on the wheels again. Due to the way passengers are violently shaken inside the car, rollovers in Homestead and across the country frequently lead to serious injury and even fatalities.

White-vehicle-after-auto-accident-300x199

Rollovers in Hollywood and across South Florida happen for a number of reasons. In some cases, a vehicle is traveling too fast and this can cause the car to spin out of control and roll, especially on turns and on uneven roadways. Rollovers can also happen when a car collision is serious enough to cause a rollover. Crashes where the wheels of a car leave the road are more likely to result in rollovers.

Head-on collisions in Hollywood, Homestead, and other Florida communities occur when a car or truck veers away from their own lane and heads towards oncoming traffic, crashing with a car headed in the opposite direction. These accidents can also sometimes be wrong-way collisions.

800px-Isuzu_D-Max_crash_1-300x225

Head-on accidents are among the most dangerous, due in part to the force exerted. Two vehicles headed towards each other at top speed can cause catastrophic damage. Often, these traffic collisions occur because someone is tired, distracted, or driving under the influence and they turn the wrong way or drift into an oncoming lane. Poor street signage can also lead to these collisions. In some cases, these collisions can also result from bad passing techniques. If a driver is trying to pass on a two-lane road and fails to check oncoming traffic, they may crash into a car heading in the opposite direction.

Rear-end collisions in Hollywood and Homestead are sometimes called rear-end shunt accidents. These crashes occur anywhere in Florida and across the country and in many cases are completely preventable. If you have been injured, you will want to ensure you have the compensation you need to replace lost income, pay for medical bills, and take care of yourself financially.

Tannerite_car_hood_wreckage-300x225

 

In most cases, these crashes occur because a driver behind the impacted car was negligent. Common causes of rear-end shunt collisions include distracted, sleepy, or drunk driving. When a motorist is not alert, he or she can fail to notice when the car in front of them has stopped, and this can cause them to crash into the car in front of them. Tailgating or failing to leave enough room in bad weather can also lead to collisions, as can poor road design or poor road repair. In these cases, if you have been injured in a rear-end shunt collision, you may be able to seek compensation for your injuries and losses.
