Motor Vehicle Crashes

Motor Vehicle Accidents 

Jason Turchin and his team of experienced Florida accident attorneys want to help you if you have been injured in a motor vehicle accident in Florida. Motor vehicle crashes happen too often due to careless driving, speeding, failure to yield to other drivers, vehicle defects, old or faulty vehicle equipment, and recklessness. Our investigation encompasses not only on the person responsible for the crash, but other factors that may have increased the damage or led to the crash. We want to get as much information as possible so that we can get you the compensation you so rightfully deserve. 

Automobile accidents make up the majority of motor vehicle related injury cases we often see in Florida. This encompasses accidents that occur as a result of rear ending, lane changing, speeding, running red lights and stop signs, and much more. 

Motorcycle accidents can be catastrophic and often deadly. The carelessness of another driver can lead to serious consequences for motorcyclists. Often, motorcycle accidents lead to severe injuries such as traumatic brain injury, paralysis, spinal cord injury, road rash, and even accidental death.

Similar to motorcycles, the small size of a scooter often means disaster for those who drive them. A careless driver may fail to notice a small scooter that is sharing the road with him, leading to bad accidents with severe injuries and death. 

Pedestrians typically have the right of way, but careless or reckless motorists nonetheless often fail to yield to a pedestrian in the crosswalk. Without the protection of being in a car with a seatbelt, accidents involving pedestrians can be very serious.

Getting hit by a large truck can cause severe injury and even death. Not only do trucks have a lot of blind spots, truck drivers themselves are often negligent by working more hours than allowed, causing fatigue and thus, serious consequences for those sharing the road.

Motorists are expected to share the road with and yield to bicycle riders. Oftentimes, drivers fail to yield to bike riders and hit them, causing serious injuries. 

Buses are large and have a number of blind spots like trucks. In addition, cities often fail to update or maintain old and run down buses, causing parts of the bus to malfunction and cause accidents and injury to both bus passengers and other drivers. 

Like many other motorists, taxi cab drivers can be careless and reckless while driving. Some cab drivers don’t require passengers to wear their seatbelts, while some cabs don’t even provide them. This leaves passengers who are involved in an accident with more serious injuries than they would have received in a typical automobile crash.

Accidents involving two or more cars are common, but injuries vary from mild to severe to death. Because of safety features, you may not feel the extent of your injuries for days following the accident, but it is important to seek medical attention immediately in case serious injury has occurred. 

Airbags are designed to protect and “cushion” drivers and passengers in the event of a serious car accident. However, a major recall on Takata airbags revealed that cars equipped with such airbags were firing metal shrapnel or deploying with excessive force, leaving drivers and passengers with serious and sometimes permanent injuries.
