Car accidents are the cause of hundreds of thousands of casualties each year and the purpose of millions of people suffering from life-altering injuries. Motor accidents in West Palm Beach affect many people around us, and more than half of these accidents could be prevented if it weren't for negligence or misconduct while operating a moving vehicle.

 

Our personal injury attorneys in West Palm Beach have compiled a list of the most common causes of car accidents, motorcycle accidents, truck accidents, and pedestrian accidents so you can educate yourself and loved ones. Understanding the common causes of car accidents allows you to make educated decisions. Being a conscious driver while operating a motor vehicle in Florida will contribute to keeping the roads free of accidents.

 

What Are Common Causes of Motor Vehicle Accidents-West Palm Beach, Florida?

 

Speeding

It is no lie that speeding kills. Speed limits are set in place for a reason, and especially on Florida highways and the turnpike, you see it every day. Speeding is a leading cause of accidents in Florida. Drivers who are speeding do not have enough time to react and stop in time before colliding into something or someone else. And likewise, other drivers who are in the path of a car speeding is not able to react in time to get out of the way.

There are many times where drivers are oblivious to the speed they are going until they look at the odometer, while other careless drivers are conscious of their decision and elect to ignore the law. Regardless of the reason, speeding is dangerous and can kill, it is reckless and puts thousands of people at risk every day.

 

Operating A Vehicle Under The Influence Of Drugs Or Alcohol.

A lot of people will continue to drive while on a prescription for opioids. Please read the label, do not operate a vehicle as it can inhibit your ability to react. Nonprescription opioids and alcohol also fall under this category. Unfortunately, thousands of people die caused by the negligence of a person getting behind the wheel while under the influence of drugs or alcohol, putting the lives of others on the road at risk. These accidents are incredibly costly, tragic, and they result in significant consequences.  

Recent studies have shown a significant number of these drivers putting others at risk are between the ages of 21-34 years old. If you see a driver that is overcorrecting their car swerving

driving abnormally slow or fast, call the police and maintain a safe distance as they may be intoxicated.

 

Distracted Driving

Distracted driving is the cause of a majority of car accidents, taking thousands of lives each year. This is a term frequently used for people using their mobile devices while driving, including teens and adults. However, texting while driving isn't the only distraction. While operating a vehicle, 100% concentration is needed, and more times than not, taking your eyes off the road for a split second can be the cause of an accident. Examples include changing the station, taking a drink, passing something to a passenger, any distraction that diverts your attention from the road can be the cause of a car accident.

With millions of cars on the road each day, it is almost impossible to prevent distracted drivers. However, you can be aware of others around you and limit your distractions while driving in Florida.

 

Aggressive Driving and Road Rage

It is always scary observing cars on the roadway driving aggressive or witnessing road rage. However, in the State of Florida, you see aggressive driving and road rage all the time. This behavior is extraordinarily reckless and puts everyone else around them at risk. These types of roadway behavior increase the risk of others suffering from serious injuries or death. 

 

The scariest thing about aggressive driving or road rage is that almost everyone at some point will become a victim of their negative emotions and express road rage at some point which is why this is a very dangerous, and a common reason for accidents to occur. Most drivers can channel their anger, while others will escalate the situation causing an accident. 

 

What Are Some Common Signs Of Aggressive Driving?

 

  • Speeding
  • Ignoring traffic lights
  • Ignoring pedestrian walkways
  • Tailgating
  • Honking their horn at others
  • Yelling and swearing
  • Weaving in and out of traffic
  • Forcing others off the road
  • Slamming into other cars

 

Road Conditions and Poor Weather

Florida experiences torrential downpour at times, which affects the way people drive and contribute to accidents that generally would not have happened. Storms that we experience can hinder visibility and can cause hydroplaning. Also, roads that are under construction can be a cause of accidents. Take alternate routes or avoid the roadways if you know there could be unsafe road conditions. It is not worth an accident.
