Truck accident fatalities have gotten worse with new regulations

Large trucks can be somewhat intimidating to drivers of passenger vehicles. The fear is understandable, as a truck accident can cause serious injuries and death. Federal regulations are serious steps to try to improve safety and some can have uneven results that make it appear as if they are making the roads less safe. When there is a truck crash and people are injured or lose their lives, understanding these rules and how they might have impacted a collision might be a key factor in a filing for compensation.

Onboard systems to prevent pedestrian-car accidents not perfected

Improving safety on Florida roadways is a goal for automakers, legislators and law enforcement officials. Since auto accidents are such a common cause for injuries and fatalities, various strategies are undertaken to avoid these collisions and the accompanying catastrophic injuries. Notably at risk are pedestrians. When a pedestrian is hit by a motor vehicle, they are naturally vulnerable. With the rise in distracted driving, this has gotten steadily worse.

Florida one of the worst states for pedestrian-car accidents

Pedestrians are in danger whenever they are walking near the streets in Florida and throughout the nation. Motor vehicle accidents involving pedestrians can cause catastrophic injuries and death. The problem seems to be getting worse. With distracted drivers, recklessness, negligence, drivers who are under the influence and other behaviors that place people in jeopardy, it is imperative for pedestrians to be cautious. Still, regardless of how careful they are, an auto accident involving a pedestrian can happen at any time.
