Hillsborough County doesn’t compare with Miami-Dade when it comes to the high rate of vehicle accidents, but our home county still has more than its fair share of mishaps, many of which cause catastrophic injury and wrongful death. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, Hillsborough County recorded 228 traffic fatalities in 2016. The totals dropped to 178 in 2017 and 176 in 2018, but those numbers were still high enough to place the county within the top 20 in the nations for accident fatalities. (Miami-Dade, with 285 fatalities in 2017 and 293 in 2018, made the top 10.)

Common causes of vehicle accidents in Hillsborough County

Accidents are usually attributable to negligent conduct by people who are under duty to exercise reasonable care under the circumstances. Where vehicle operation is concerned, negligence can take the form of:

  • Distracted driving — Cellphone use is perhaps the worst form of distractive behavior drivers engage in. Other examples include eating and drinking, reaching for objects, personal grooming, rubbernecking, and carrying on agitated conversations with passengers.
  • Aggressive driving — The truth of the old adage that haste makes waste is evident when aggressive driving causes an accident. Speeding, reckless maneuvers, tailgating, sudden lane changes and failing to yield the right of way rank high on the list of accident causes.
  • Mechanical failure — A poorly designed or maintained vehicle is a hazard. In recent years, numerous tragedies have occurred due to failed brakes, tire blowouts, electronic gear shift failures and other mechanical defects.
  • Impaired operation — Drugs, alcohol, and sleeplessness are the major sources of impairment for drivers.
  • Bad weather — Driving rains, high winds and low visibility can make a vehicle unsafe to operate. Boat operators especially have to be cautious about going out in rough weather.

Whatever the cause of your vehicle accident, our attorneys are ready to fully investigate the situation and determine who was at fault. From there, we pursue your case with the utmost urgency to deliver the results you deserve.
