Fuchs has over 20 years of experience in successfully representing motor vehicle accident victims, their families and friends who have suffered a death in the family or sustained serious bodily injuries, pain and suffering, lost wages and medical bills in crosswalks or intersections because of the negligence of a driver of another motor vehicle. Statistics confirm that teenagers get into more accidents than adults. The reason for this is clear: teenagers drive more recklessly and have less experience on the roads. Fort Lauderdale car accident lawyers share several tips to help you and your teenager to avoid unnecessary accidents.
Before pulling out into an intersection or out after stopping at a stop sign, look twice. Many drivers ignore this very simple rule, however, within an instant, circumstances can change. Often a speeding car can creep up behind you or a rushing pedestrian may decide to take their chances and dart across the street. By making it a habit of checking twice, you can avoid this problem.
Beware of cars that are pulling trailer. Intersections can often be the most dangerous when trailers are involved. When at an intersection watching an oncoming car so that you can cross, check to see if the oncoming is pulling a trailer.
When traveling on the highway, being especially cautious is vital. When switching lanes, it is important to check your mirrors AND physically turn your head to check your blind spot. Relying solely on your rear-view mirrors is a dangerous game. If a neighboring car is traveling along in your blind spot, you may not see it and cause an accident.
When passing a truck on the road, be very careful. It is more difficult to truck drivers to see smaller cars as they are passing. Realizing that the driver most likely cannot see you means that a small mistake on his part could cost you your life. A common rule of thumb is that if you cannot see a truck’s mirrors, the truck driver cannot see you.
When your light turns green at an intersection, you should always watch to be sure to wait a moment for any lingering vehicles. Often rushing motorist will punch the gas and attempt to make the light. Unfortunately, this bad habit can lead to horrible T-bone accidents in intersections. One way to avoid this incident is by allowing a few moments to pass before hitting the gas and clearing the intersection via your own green light.
