Farm equipment shares our roads, especially during harvest time. Florida laws allow operators of farm equipment to use public roads, but this can lead to accidents. In fact, the National Safety Council reports that about a third of all tractor fatalities occur on public roads and bout 80% of accidents involving these vehicles happen in dry weather and during the daytime.
Last week, we started this short series by telling you three of six important things you must know if you’re in a traffic accident. This week, we tackle the remaining three things you need to know:
All-terrain vehicles (ATVs) are a popular option in Key Largo and surrounding areas, with many trails in the region for exploring and even rental services that allow you to rent an ATV for an afternoon or weekend. ATVs are popular because they allow you to explore wilderness and off-road areas, but these vehicles do come with some dangers.
ATVs are designed with a high center of gravity, which can make them to vulnerable to rollovers, especially on uneven ground. Injuries resulting from ATV crashes can result in serious injuries, and if you find yourself injured after this type of accident, you may wish to contact Flaxman Law Group at 866-352-9626 to schedule a free, no obligation case consultation to find out whether you may have a claim.
Whether you live in Florida City, Miami, or any community, the Fourth of July weekend is a chance to spend time relaxing with friends and family. At Flaxman Law Group, we want to wish everyone a safe and happy holiday weekend.
Roundabouts are designed to reduce traffic congestion and make our roads safer. Florida has adopted them widely, so there are about 300 roundabouts on Florida roads and 20 on highways across the state. Unlike intersections, roundabouts don’t use road signs and full stops. Instead, drivers yield right of way, improving the flow of traffic.
While studies have shown that roundabouts reduce the risk of accidents, motorists are sometimes intimidated by them and aren’t sure how to drive safely through a roundabout. We’ve created this guide to help you.
School buses take children safely to and from school, but these large vehicles are often slower-moving and make frequent stops, which means other users of the road have to use additional caution around these vehicles.
If you have been in a traffic accident in Fort Lauderdale, determining the cause is important if you want to find out who the liable parties and need to decide whether you have a legal claim to seek compensation for your injuries and losses. Unfortunately, it can be challenging for most drivers to figure out the cause of their accident for a few reasons:
Many traffic accidents in Hollywood and South Florida are caused by driver distraction, driving under the influence, human error, and other decisions made on the part of drivers. However, some collisions can be caused by factors outside a motorist’s control. For example, cities and towns have an obligation to work with experienced professionals to design and create safe roadways. When they fail to do this, serious collisions can result.
Whenever you are in a traffic crash, it can be a frightening and upsetting situation. Getting the insurance settlement you need can be a journey and it can take time to recover from your injuries. However, if you have been injured on a highway, whether in a rear-end shunt collision, a side-swipe crash, a head-on accident, or any incident in Miami-Dade, you may face some additional challenges.
