What Are the Most Common Causes of Florida Rear-end Collisions?

Any negligent action can cause a rear-end wreck. Some of the most common we see include:

  • Distracted driving
  • Failure to check blind spots when making a lane change
  • Failing to monitor traffic patterns in the road ahead
  • Following too closely
  • Traveling at an unsafe speed

How Can You Prove that the Other Driver Was At Fault?

We can’t just say the other driver hit your car and force them or their insurance company to pay. We need to prove it. Evidence we use might include:

  • Surveillance footage: There are often cameras at or near traffic intersections, such as those on ATMs or installed as part of traffic control. If footage from one of these cameras captured your accident, that video evidence can provide very helpful support for your claim that the accident was not your fault.
  • Eyewitness accounts: Individuals standing on the sidewalk or in nearby cars can serve as witnesses supporting your claim for damages after a rear-end accident. In some cases, they may have witnessed what caused the at-fault driver to hit your car, such as the driver using their phone in the moments before the collision.
  • Accident reconstruction experts: After an accident, a skilled expert can build an accurate reproduction of the accident in the form of a computer simulation. The expert will use evidence such as the damage to each car, tire skid marks on the road at the scene of the crash, the position of the vehicles after the collision, and information contained in the vehicles’ event data recorders (the vehicle’s “black box”) to depict what happened in a crash.

You Want to Contact Our Team As Soon As Possible After Your Crash

There are several reasons you want to act quickly after an accident:

You Have a Limited Time to File a Lawsuit

Florida law limits how long you have to file a lawsuit after a crash. If you don’t file within two years, you might end up recovering nothing.

You want to get in touch with us as soon as you can to give us the time we need to build a case before the deadline expires.

Evidence Can Disappear Quickly

One good reason to contact an attorney as soon as possible after an accident is to ensure that your attorney can begin gathering evidence immediately. For example, documenting the scene of the accident and the condition of both vehicles immediately after the crash is key to proving the intensity of the collision and the resulting damage.

Another time-sensitive form of evidence that must be gathered quickly is surveillance video. Security camera footage is often erased or taped over a short time after the footage is captured.

Similarly, eyewitnesses will become more and more difficult to locate the more time that passes. Memories of these witnesses to your accident may quickly fade, as well.

Our team needs to get started early to ensure this evidence is collected.
