Speed-Related Accidents In Florida: Causes And Effects

By Paul Reed |

Most of us speed much more often than we care to admit. If the road is flat, straight, and dry, the weather is clear, and the traffic is light, speeding is not particularly dangerous. But if even one of those “ifs” is not present, speed is often deadly. In fact, excessive velocity is a… Read More »

If A Rented Vehicle Hits Me, Who’s At Fault?

By Paul Reed |

Under the negligent entrustment rule, owners who lend their property to unqualified drivers are liable for the damages that these individuals cause. Persons without valid driver’s licenses, or who drive in violation of an eyeglasses requirement or other listed drivers’ license conditions, are unqualified as a matter of law. People with bad driving records… Read More »

Four Common Car Crash Causes In Florida

By Paul Reed |

Driver error causes roughly 95 percent of the car accidents in Florida, whether the cause is direct, such as running a stop light, or indirect, such as failing to slow down sufficiently on a wet road. Moreover, sometimes the error is a simple mistake and sometimes the error is negligence. Victims may obtain damages… Read More »

How To Handle Some Frequent Defenses In Florida Car Wreck Cases

By Paul Reed |

Insurance companies are in business to make money, not to help people in times of need. Since they make money by denying claims, they use teams of investigators and lawyers who scour through the facts and the law looking for loopholes that enable them to deny liability in car crash claims. An effective attorney… Read More »

Winning Money In Alcohol-Related Car Crashes

By Paul Reed |

Human error causes almost all car crashes, and many times, that error is unrelated to driving. For example, a tire may be defective or the operator may be too sleepy to drive. Alcohol impairment, which is a factor in about a third of the fatal vehicle collisions in Florida, may be the most prominent… Read More »

Asleep At The Wheel

By Paul Reed |

The government estimates that drowsy drivers cause about 72,000 serious injury crashes a year, and that number may be underreported. Much like alcohol, fatigue slows reaction time, inhibits concentration, and impairs judgment ability. All these things significantly increase the risk of a serious car crash. In fact, driving after eighteen hours without sleep is… Read More »

Hit-And-Run Crash Rate Increases Again

By Paul Reed |

In 2016, there were over 99,000 hit-and-run crashes in Florida, and half of the 19,000 injured victims were pedestrians. There were 94,000 such accidents in 2015 and 85,000 in 2014. Many of these cases are closed quickly because the driver is apprehended at or near the scene. Other cases drag on for months or… Read More »

Gotta Catch ‘Em All

By Paul Reed |

A mere six months after it became available for download, Pokemon Go has earned more than $1 billion. The mobile game reached the magic number faster than either Puzzles & Dragons or Candy Crush. By comparison, Clash Royale, another phenom mobile game from 2016, peaked at just under $600 million in revenue. Pokemon Go… Read More »

Drugged Driving Negligence Cases In Florida

By Paul Reed |

Because there is no BAC breath test for drug use, and because police officers rarely bother to obtain search warrants for blood draws, almost all drugged driving prosecutions are based on circumstantial evidence. For similar reasons, these cases are more difficult to win in civil court as well, largely because the negligence per se… Read More »

Having a designated driver after a few drinks is always the safe play, but what about texting?

By Ryan Reed |

  You’ve heard of a designated driver when you and your friends will be out drinking. Well, have you ever thought of having a designated texter with you when you’re driving in your car? You won’t be distracted if you assign a passenger the job of reading and responding to your texts on your… Read More »
