Car Accident Attorney Boca Raton, Fl.
Every year, many Boca Raton residents are injured in car accidents caused by the carelessness of another driver. These injuries range from minor to serious, even fatal.
While car accidents can be caused by a variety of reasons, driver negligence tends to be the most common one. Many drivers are reckless behind the wheel and fail to pay attention to the road, neglecting their own safety as well as the safety of their passengers, pedestrians, and other drivers on the road. About 28 percent of motor vehicle traffic fatalities occur because a driver was intoxicated or driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol. The majority of car accidents happen when a driver fails to pay proper attention to the road and speeds or disobeys a traffic law, is distracted by a passenger, a phone call, is texting while driving, or is otherwise distracted from the operation of his or her motor vehicle.
Sometimes, a car accident victim has to deal with the situation of a hit and run accident, which can be particularly problematic. A competent investigation conducted by the police and overseen by a Boca Raton personal injury lawyer specializing in car accidents can often find the hit and run driver and hold that driver accountable for the damage that he or she caused.
