Out of State Driver Accidents
An Orlando lawyer who can help you recover compensation
The Orlando area is a popular tourist destination. There are a lot of attractions that bring people into the state each year – warm weather, theme parks, festivals and golf courses. This also means there are more cars on the road, increasing the risk of a car accident that leaves people hurt.
Attorney Michael Cerasa of The Cerasa Law Firm LLC represents people who have been injured in car crashes caused by negligent drivers. He has the big firm experience to build strong cases insurance companies have to take seriously. But he gives clients the personal attention only a smaller firm can offer.
An influx of visitors every year
Colder weather in the Northern parts of the United States and Canada in the months of November through April cause an annual migration of people to warmer states in the South, including Florida. The increase in the number of drivers on the road in Florida during these months creates new and dangerous hazards on Florida roadways, both for Florida residents, and our temporary visitors.
Florida sees an increase in car accidents annually between November and December, while there is little change in the weather locally. The most common cause? The surge of additional, temporary drivers on Florida's roadways during the winter months.
Travelers and tourists are not the cause of the accidents themselves, but they do cause of more traffic—and with more traffic comes more car accidents. A combination of unfamiliarity with surroundings, combined with busier roadways means more opportunities for accidents to occur.
There are many causes of car accidents on Florida roads. They include drivers who don’t follow speed limits or fail to maintain a safe distance with the car in front of them. Others swerve in and out of traffic, or to squeeze into a narrow opening. Some drivers pass other cars in traffic unnecessarily or fail to check blind spots before changing lanes.
