Unfortunately, car accidents are becoming extremely common as drivers are becoming more distracted and paying less attention while driving a car. This can have serious effects on victims leaving some seriously injured or permanently hurt and financially destroyed. At Crews & Pesquera each auto accident case will be handled by an experienced lawyer with a full staff of secretaries and paralegals.
Motorcycle accidents are becoming increasingly common as our roadways become more congested and drivers have more distractions than ever. These types of accidents can cause serious permanent injuries and financial hardships affecting the victims and their families.
While motorcycles are less than 2% of all registered vehicles in the United States motorcyclists account for 8% of all traffic deaths. Florida has the highest motorcycle accident injuries and deaths of any other state. A frequent cause of motorcycle accidents is the other driver’s failure to see and/or recognize motorcycles in traffic. In two-thirds of those accidents the other vehicle violated the motorcyclist’s right-of-way.
Drivers of semi-trucks, companies and motor carriers engaged in the operation of semi-trucks have a duty to operate such vehicles in a responsible manner. Thousands of people are killed or severely injured each year as a result of motor vehicle accidents involving semi-trucks. Unsafe driving, over-sized loads and various other irresponsible practices put the motoring public in danger.
Collisions between semi-trucks and other motorists throughout Florida usually occur due to truck drivers being fatigued and/or pushed to meet unrealistic and unsafe schedules.
