Defining the different types of driving distractions

“Distracted driving” is a term that you hear more and more in relation to car accidents in Naples. Yet like most, you likely assume that when authorities are referencing it, they are referring to people using their cell phones while driving. That is the assumption held by many of those who come to see us here at The Caldarone Law Group, P.A. They, however, have discovered (as you may also have) that distracted driving is less a designation of a singular type of action than it is a broad categorization. 

Understanding dram shop liability

With the harsh penalties that can result from a drunk driving conviction, many in Naples might wonder why people would even chance getting behind the wheel after drinking. Yet statistics show that many of those who drive drunk may not ever be caught. Indeed, information shared by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention shows that the $1 million people who were arrested in the U.S. on DUI charges in 2016 only represented a fraction of the 111 million who admit to driving drunk every year. 

Head-on collision in Orange County nets fatal results

The term “car accidents” is apt given that while people in Naples may indeed be at fault in such instances, there typically is no element of intent to have caused a collision. Yet the fact that a person did not mean to cause an accident so not necessarily exclude them from liability for the incident (particularly in cases where negligence or recklessness might have contributed to an accident). In such a scenario, it might reasonably be argued that had one not demonstrated such careless, the accident never would have occurred in the first place. 

Rate of negligent drivers running through red lights is rising

When a person gets behind the wheel of a vehicle, he or she is responsible for the choices made while driving. Each person bears the burden of being attentive and cautious while driving, doing everything possible to avoid a collision. When a Florida driver focuses on something else, even for a second, the results can be catastrophic.
