It is important for drivers to regularly evaluate whether or not it is safe for them to continue to drive. If they fail to act in a reasonable manner and cause a car accident, then it is necessary to hold them accountable for the harm that they caused.

There are many different types of accidents that happen in Florida, including failure to yield collisions, which are the second-leading cause of all fatal crashes. These crashes are caused by a driver who travels into the path of another vehicle, pedestrian, or bicyclist, which had the right to be moving in that manner. Examples of this type of accident include a car turning left in front of a driver that had the right to travel straight or a vehicle hitting a person in a crosswalk. It is important for drivers to have a clear understanding about which vehicle has to yield the right-of-way in different scenarios. When a driver does not know the rules or does not follow them in a particular situation, he may cause a serious accident.

After an accident that has been caused by a failure to yield the right-of-way, it is critical to retain attorneys who are able to demonstrate that the other driver was the wrongdoer. This requires gathering evidence, retaining the right reconstruction experts, and taking other actions to build an effective case. The knowledgeable Miami car accident lawyers at Greenberg, Stone & Urbano, P.A. have more than 130 years of collective experience in analyzing the facts of the accident, reconstructing the events of the accident, and establishing the elements of a negligence case.

Recently, there has been a lot of attention focused on the potential safety hazards of child seats manufactured by Graco Children’s Products, Inc. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) now has opened an investigation into whether Graco handled the report of the potential defects in the child seats properly. The problem with the car seats involves the buckles on these car seats, which might get stuck in the latched position. These buckle defects could compromise the safety features of the car seat and place the child’s life in danger during an accident because it might not be possible to get the child out of the car seat quickly.

One of the worst things that can happen to a parent is to have a child injured or killed. However, when that injury or fatality could have been prevented, it is crucial to have attorneys who know how to gather the evidence to prove liability. The skilled Miami car accident lawyers at Greenberg, Stone & Urbano, P.A. have more than 130 years of collective experience in developing strong cases that lead to compensation for the wrongs done to our clients.

The management of the investigation into the problems with the Graco car seats and their buckle systems might have been negligent, leading to unnecessary injuries to the children due to the delay. After the NHTSA placed pressure on the company to act in response to the defect, there were more than six million child seats recalled, which is the largest recall of child safety seats in the history of the United States. The current investigation into whether the recall was handled properly was based on potential delays in reporting the issue and taking appropriate action.

Backover accidents are a very common type of collision, especially when a person is backing out of a parking space or driveway. During the holiday season, starting with Halloween and extending through the New Year, these types of collisions increase. One of the reasons for this increase is that there are many people in shopping centers, out on sidewalks, and visiting family. This also is a time when drivers may be distracted by the emotional and financial demands of the season, leading to more situations when a person does not pay enough attention and care before traveling backwards. Even low-speed backover accidents can lead to serious harm because victims often get pulled under a vehicle.

A person who is injured in a backover accident or who has had a loved one injured or killed in a backover accident needs experienced legal counsel as soon as possible.

Many car manufacturers already have installed back-up cameras in their vehicles in order to comply with the mandates that likely are going to impact every manufactured vehicle in the next few years as part of the New Car Assessment Program (NCAP). In addition, there are other safety devices that alert the driver to an object in close proximity to the rear of the vehicle. However, even with all of these safety features, there still are many accidents that happen simply because the driver did not check the rear and side-view mirrors before moving in reverse.

There are many different things that should happen following a car accident, including getting necessary medical treatment. However, one of the most important things that must be done is to gather the evidence that demonstrates the liability of the other driver. This can be done in many ways, but one of the most compelling pieces of evidence may be surveillance video or photographs that are taken at the scene of an accident. In today’s technology age, it is common for there to be multiple cameras focused on an intersection or other section of road.

It is crucial to have an attorney who knows how to prove that the other person was responsible for the harm caused during the accident. The dedicated Miami personal injury lawyers at Greenberg, Stone & Urbano, P.A. have more than 130 years of collective experience in uncovering the evidence that is crucial to the success of a personal injury case. We know how to demonstrate liability in order to recover compensation for our clients.

At the heart of a car accident case is the determination of which driver took what actions that caused or contributed to the car crash. In some car crash cases, it may be necessary to demonstrate how third-party liability contributed to the collision. The demonstration of causation and liability may be done through accident reconstruction, witness testimony, police reports, and evidence at the scene of the accident. However, there are times when the evidence in inconclusive or unreliable and the drivers or other parties involved in the crash have different versions of events. This is where images that capture the events of the crash can play a pivotal role.
