There are many human factors that can lead to car collisions, including:
- Drunk or drugged driving
- Violation of road rules
- Distracted driving
- Road rage
- Fatigued driving
Not only are all of these causes of collision quite common, but they have one thing in common: they are tied to poor decisions by drivers. All of these bad decisions can also lead to terrible collisions that cause head injuries, fractures, spinal cord trauma, amputations, and other serious or fatal injuries.When Mistakes are Not Just Mistakes
Everyone makes mistakes, but errors on the road can be deadly. In many cases, so-called mistakes on the roadway are also completely preventable and drivers who are reckless can be held liable for the poor choices they have made. When a driver gets behind the wheel after taking illegal drugs, for example, that is not just a poor choice but also a reckless action that can lead to a serious collision and even to fatalities.
In these situations, people who have been injured through the negligence or recklessness of others may have a legal claim. Under Florida laws, drivers and passengers can seek compensation through a personal injury claim if their injuries were caused by negligence, wrongful acts, or recklessness.
In some cases, the at-fault driver may allege that they simply made a mistake. While everyone makes mistakes, driving recklessly is not an error – it is a choice to not take driving responsibly. In these cases, the at-fault motorist can be held liable and the injured passengers can seek compensation so that they have the money to pay for medical care, hospital bills, lost income, and the other losses they have suffered. A personal injury attorney can help the plaintiff show that an aggressive or reckless driver has a history of dangerous driving or should have taken more care behind the wheel.
The reality is that while we are all only too human, with all the faults that entails, we have an obligation to act reasonably to prevent harming others. When we drive, especially, we operate a heavy piece of machinery that has the potential to do much harm -- and we are expected to take all due care to prevent injury and collisions. When drivers fail to act reasonably, they can be held liable for the damage they cause.
