MIAMI CAR ACCIDENT LAWYER SHARES INFORMATION ON CAR ACCIDENTS INVOLVING ROAD SERVICE VEHICLES AND OTHER MOTORISTS
Many times, motorists have to pull over to the side of the highway and wait for a road service vehicle. While this may seem safe, it is in fact a potentially dangerous moment given the speeds at which other motorists are driving. When combined with poor weather conditions or poor visibility, the chances of an accident always increase. Though some motorists may be able to change a flat tire, many cannot, and very few drivers will be able to repair a busted radiator or replace a dead battery on the highway. When the vehicle is beyond repair by the driver, the only option is to request a road service and wait. However, the wait can be deadly if special precautions are not taken by the driver and its occupants. In Miami, the personal injury staff of car accident lawyers, understand accidents that occur while waiting for a tow truck or mechanic to help them get their vehicle off the highway. In most cases, other drivers will not notice vehicles stopped on the shoulder of a highway or side of a road, and when this happens, rear-end collisions are very common. It’s a known fact that drivers are very often operating vehicles while using their cellphones to read or write text messages. In fact, texting and driving is now the second most common cause of car accidents, with the first cause of car accidents being drinking and driving. Sometimes, drunk driving together with texting and driving make for a deadly combination. The Perazzo Law Firm has handled numerous cases in which drivers are crashed into while waiting for road service because they are simply not detected in time by distracted or drunk drivers.
