Fort Lauderdale Auto Accident Attorneys Explain Common Problems That May Lead to Injuries

Giving South Florida drivers the information they need to make good decisions

Auto accidents can be the result of driver negligence, faulty car upkeep, or bad weather conditions. While most drivers know the inherent danger of hitting the road, no one expects to be in a serious accident. When you’re hurt because of someone else’s reckless behavior, do not hesitate to seek full and fair compensation.

After a wreck of any severity, you should be focused on healing and taking care of your family. The Fort Lauderdale auto accident lawyers at Yeboah Law Group, P.A. can help you get justice. We’re here to determine the cause or causes of your accident and doggedly defend your rights in a personal injury suit. Here, we’ll break down some of the main issues our attorneys come across in an auto accident claim.

Mechanical issues

Even with the best maintenance and care that money can buy, cars and their various components have a limited lifespan. When an owner isn’t diligent in making all necessary repairs in a timely fashion, the consequences can be disastrous—for that driver and everyone else on the road. Some types of mechanical issues at the root of auto accidents are:

  • Worn or underinflated tires
  • Design flaws or recalled parts
  • Brake failures
  • Lack of upkeep of head and tail lights (leading to poor visibility)
  • Steering system breakdown

Operator error

Driver error encompasses all types of driver impairment, as well as operators who disregard proper driving regulations, often leading to heartbreak and substantial physical damage. Driver oversight can include:

  • Distracted driving, including texting
  • Substance based incapacitation, drunk driving, or drowsy driving
  • Reckless driving or speeding
  • Disregard for stop signs or lights
  • Lane changing or turns without proper precautions
  • Tailgating and road rage

Outside factors

Sometimes an accident occurs when the driver is conscientious and all vehicular maintenance is up to date. While these ‘out of the blue’ type of collisions are less common, they certainly still occur regularly. Perhaps Mother Nature is to be blamed for issues like blowing dangerous debris into drivers’ fields of vision, or sudden animal appearances. Even new or well cared for tires can have blowouts without warning. Environmental factors in our area, like high winds or fog, can wreak havoc for even the most experienced drivers in the safest vehicles. These are the unavoidable accidents, the incidents we all just hope to come out of with a minimum of damage to ourselves and those around us. That’s not to say that all outside factors come without blame. Issues such as hazardous roadways and poorly maintained signage or driving surfaces cause preventable accidents.

Trust a serious car accident lawyer in Fort Lauderdale for serious results

The lawsuits that result, to try to gain fair compensation for these offenses, can be arduous and complex. Working closely with a Fort Lauderdale auto accident lawyer can help alleviate some of these burdens.
