Every time a driver gets behind the wheel, that driver has a duty to obey traffic laws and operate the vehicle in a manner that is both safe and reasonable under the circumstances. Careless drivers who cause accidents and seriously injure other people may be held liable in a personal injury claim. Personal injury attorneys represent accident victims and hold careless drivers accountable for the injuries they have caused.
Careless Driving is Not Reckless Driving
In States like Florida, careless driving and reckless driving are two different traffic violations. Careless driving refers to driving that is not done in a “careful and prudent” manner. Reckless driving, in contrast, involves a complete disregard for the safety of others. Still, both careless driving and reckless driving may cause deadly accidents. Regardless of whether a driver was careless or reckless, the driver may still be held accountable for the harm he has caused in a lawsuit.
Proving That a The At-fault Driver Was Driving Careless
It may seem difficult to prove that a driver was being careless at the time of an accident, but there are several ways to prove carelessness. For example, eyewitnesses may have noticed the driver’s erratic behavior. In some areas, video surveillance footage may help determine the cause of an accident. Accident reconstruction experts may also be hired to analyze skid marks and vehicle damage to help draw conclusions about the accident.
Florida personal injury attorneys have access to a network of experts and other professionals who are able to provide insight into the causes of a crash. The sooner a personal injury attorney is able to start working on a claim, the better the chances are of prevailing. If you were injured, you should meet with an attorney as soon as you can.
