Improper Lane Change

There are a variety of ways in which a car accident can take place in Florida. Some are more common that others. Further, some car accidents are a bit more clear when it comes to liability or fault than others. For instance, liability or fault typically is not called into question or dispute when one driver crashes into the rear end of the vehicle of another driver. It is typically helpful to have witnesses to a crash to help support your version of how the crash took place. In addition, it is helpful if the police officer issues a citation to the other driver and attributes the fault for the crash to someone other than you. Some Florida automobile accidents occur when one driver makes or attempts to make a lane change that causes a crash to take place. Many of these crashes take place when the at-fault driver is not paying attention or just does not take the time and effort to make sure that it is safe and clear to make the lane change. Based in Jacksonville, Florida, David Wolf handles improper lane change accidents in North Florida and throughout the State. He proudly represents injured persons and has a daily mission of Giving a Voice to Injury Victims and Their Families.

There is a Florida Statute that sets forth the law for improper lane change on Florida roads . . .

Changing lanes is governed by Section 316.085, Florida Statutes. The law provides that a driver should not make or attempt a lane change until the driver can do so with safety and without interfering with the safe travel and operation of other motor vehicles proceeding in the same direction. Unfortunately, far too many lane change accidents take place because this simple but important rule of the road is not followed. In the aftermath of a car crash, the injury victim and family must deal with a number of challenging issues including those related to property damage repair, property damage diminished value, total loss, medical care and treatment, medical bills, lost wages, insurance statements and documents, and other matters. Due to the complexity of these issues and the multiple ways in which an injury victim can inadvertently hurt a case or claim, it is important to hire an experienced automobile accident attorney for guidance, advice, and legal representation. Insurance companies have attorneys in place - You should have your own attorney in place to protect and enforce your legal rights.
