What is the Most Common Cause of Collisions?
SpeedingThe posted speed limit helps ensure the safety of travelers. When drivers disobey the posted limit by speeding, they are more likely to lose control of their vehicle and have less time to react.
Failing to Obey Traffic Signs and SignalsSigns and signals are also put in place to help regulate drivers and keep pedestrians safe. Disobeying stop signs or traffic signals can cause high-impact crashes because others are not expecting a vehicle to run through the sign or light.
Distracted DrivingUnfortunately, this is one of the main causes of car accidents today. Distracted driving is caused by any action that takes away a driver’s focus from the road. This includes texting, face timing, scrolling through social media, and eating/drinking while driving. Taking your eyes off the road for even 2-3 seconds can cause a fatal accident.
Falling Asleep Behind the WheelMany drivers admit to falling asleep behind the wheel due to lack of sleep and stress. A driver who is overly tired is less likely to be able to react quickly enough to avoid an accident.
AnimalsLiving in Florida, we have the privilege of being surrounded by beautiful nature and wildlife. Unfortunately, this also means that animals are more likely to run in front of vehicles and create dangers on the roadway. It is always best to be cautious and alert for animal crossing warning signs in wooded areas and on highways.
Drunk Driving/Driving While ImpairedDriving under the influence of any drug or alcohol is illegal. Being under the influence decreases a driver’s reaction time and increases the likelihood of accidents.
Bad WeatherAlthough Florida is the “Sunshine State” and has beautiful weather most of the year, sudden rain showers, particularly during the summer months, are very common. People may panic when it rains, causing them to drive less cautiously. Bad weather can create unsafe roadways, deep puddles, and debris, all of which are dangerous hazards.

They were able to direct me with medical care questions, and advocate on my behalf with insurance companies.
Alex and his team were my rock after I was hit by a car while riding my bike. They were able to direct me with medical care questions, advocate on my behalf with insurance companies, and really listen on days where I had pain and was completely frustrated with my insurance company and their lack of response. Highly recommend!!!!
