Rollover Crashes

There are many different types of car crashes on the road, but the most dangerous is a rollover crash. A rollover occurs when the vehicle tips over onto its side or rolls onto its roof. A vehicle rollover happens only in about 3% of all serious crashes. However, they make up 30% of people killed in passenger vehicles.

Any vehicle can be involved in a rollover, but the vehicles most likely to roll have a higher center of gravity, such as vans, pickup trucks, and SUVs.

Factors that can contribute to a rollover accident are:
• Speeding
• Tire blowouts
• Driving under the influence
• Distracted driving, causing the driver to oversteer to stay on the road
• Hitting a median or guardrail
• Uneven, rocky, or wet roadways

Rollover accidents tend to cause more serious injuries and fatalities. They commonly happen at higher speeds, and force of the accident can cause the driver or passengers to be ejected from the vehicle, or the roof to collapse upon impact. There are currently many lawsuits for defective vehicle design, if the vehicle fails to properly protect the occupants from danger during a rollover.

What Does a Personal Injury Attorney Do?

A personal injury attorney provides legal representation for those physically or emotionally harmed at the fault of another person. From car accidents to bed bug cases to slip and falls, having a personal injury attorney on your side could be very beneficial to helping you receiving the compensation you deserve. On top of medical bills and injuries, you may also have pain and suffering, lost employment wages, and other damages depending on the details of your case.

An experienced attorney will have the skills and in-depth knowledge to build your own unique case. Some of their tasks include:

• Gathering evidence
• Utilizing knowledge of liability laws and statutes of limitation
• Explaining laws and your rights
• Providing advice
• Effectively negotiating with insurance companies and other attorneys
• Drafting pleadings, motions, and discovery requests
• Assessing current and future damages
• Sending demand letters
• Representing clients at trial

A personal injury attorney can save you the trouble of filing a claim or having to deal with insurance company lawyers. You’ll be able to focus on the recovery process while knowing that your case is being handled by someone who has the experience and knowledge to get maximum compensation for your losses.

How Much Does it Cost to Hire a Personal Injury Attorney?

Personal injury attorneys typically charge based on contingency. This means that you will not have to pay anything up front. However, if you win your case (and only if you win), your lawyer will take a percentage of the recovery. This is a benefit to most people that do not wish to pay an attorney by the hour to pursue their case.

Wrong Way Drivers: A Growing Issue in Tampa Bay

Crashes caused by wrong way drivers are not uncommon in the Tampa Bay area. Pinellas, Hillsborough, and Pasco counties are among the top counties in Florida for wrong way driver crashes.

The Florida Department of Safety and Motor Vehicles found in that in 2015, Florida had 1,490 wrong-way crashes and 96 fatalities. The report stated that of the top counties for wrong-way driving crashes in Florida, Hillsborough was fourth, Pinellas was sixth and Pasco was eighth.

Most wrong way crashes happen in late evening or early morning. This could be attributed to signs being harder to read at night, or the likelihood of impaired drivers on the roadways at these times. The majority of wrong way drivers in Tampa Bay are found to be legally impaired by drugs or alcohol.

The Florida Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles (DHSMV) urges drivers to stay in the right lane if possible when driving at night, as most fatal wrong way crashes tend to occur in the left or center lane.

Remember the importance of staying awake and alert, especially at nighttime hours. If you are driving and see a wrong way driver on the road, slow down and pull off the road. Then call 911 as soon as it is safe to do so.

Do You Have a Bed Bug Case?

Do You Have a Bed Bug Case?

Florida is home to some of the world’s most popular theme parks, as well as beautiful beaches and tropical weather. With so many vacationers, some Florida cities have become a popular destination for bed bugs as well.

Bed bugs are tiny parasitic insects that are excellent at hiding, and can easily squeeze into luggage, clothing, or shoes undetected, and can quickly and easily spread to new places. Despite their name, they can be found in many places such as rugs, furniture, and even electrical outlets. Bed bugs survive by feeding on human blood, and usually end up living within about eight feet of where people sleep.

Handling a bed bug infestation is painful, stressful, and can become a financial burden as well. Medical costs can add up, as well as missing work due to pain or to avoid spreading the infestation to your workplace. Luggage, clothes, and furniture may have to be replaced as well.
