The personal injury attorneys at Fazio, DiSalvo & Abers, P.A. represent individuals hurt during highway accidents in Broward County and surrounding areas.

Experienced litigators investigate causes of Florida highway accidents

Highway accidents happen for many reasons, some of which relate to drivers’ carelessness or disregard of traffic laws. Typical causes that involve driver error include:

  • Ignoring construction zone safety — Driving through construction zones demands strict focus. Ignoring the reduced speed limit or failing to follow lane shifts may cause a serious collision.
  • Speeding — Semi-trucks and automobiles that barrel down the highway at excessive speeds put themselves and others in danger. A driver who ignores the speed limit may cause permanent devastation in someone else’s life.
  • Aggressive driving — Tailgating, swerving, lane splitting and abrupt passing are examples of aggressive driving that can lead to car and motorcycle accidents.
  • Distracted driving — Texting, eating or rubbernecking can take drivers’ eyes off the road at critical moments.
  • Drunk driving — Drivers who take the wheel while under the influence of alcohol or drugs kill hundreds of people annually and injure many more.

One of the first steps we will take after you hire us as your auto accident attorneys will be to launch an investigation into the accident. To put together a case that demonstrates the negligence of another driver or drivers, our lawyers carefully examine the accident scene as well as any written or recorded evidence.

At-fault drivers and their insurance providers often claim that victims are partially or completely responsible for accidents. We know how to counter these tactics with evidence of the other driver’s violations of law or of safe driving standards.
