DRIVERS ARE DISTRACTED OVER 50% OF THE TIME

A new comprehensive study on driver distractions published in the Journal Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, found that American drivers are distracted while driving more than 50% of the time. The primary distraction is of course the cell phone. The new study which was funded by the U.S. Government tracked more than 3,500 drivers who agreed to allow the researchers to install cameras, sensors and radars on their vehicles.

BRADENTON AND SARASOTA SLIP AND FALL ACCIDENTS

Slip and fall accidents are referred to as "premises liability" cases and they are based on a property owner's duty to care for his/her property. Slip and fall accidents fall under the category of negligence law. A person who is injured in a Florida slip and fall accident must be able to prove that the property owner created the condition leading to the accident or that the property owner knew the dangerous condition existed or should have known that the danger existed and did nothing to remedy the hazardous situation. Proving when a dangerous condition first appeared can be quite difficult.

T-BONE ACCIDENTS IN SARASOTA AND BRADENTON

During a T-bone collision, the front or rear-end of one vehicle collides with the side of another vehicle creating a "T" shape. These accidents are also called side impact accidents. There are approximately 8,500 -10,000 fatalities every year due to T-bone accidents. The impact from a T-bone accident can cause a vehicle to tip or even roll over. T-bone accidents are most often caused by negligence. Many occur at intersections when a driver runs through a red light and crashes into the side of another vehicle. Occasionally, a T-bone accident is caused because of a poorly designed intersection, a malfunctioning traffic light or a defective automobile part.
