At Coffey Trial Law, we deal with motor vehicle accidents and personal injury cases often. While most car accidents are the fault of driver error, there are some circumstances where drivers are not at fault, such as when a street signs are obstructed.
For instance, a stop sign or other traffic signs that are covered by trees or other foliage can result in an accident. While it is not necessarily the fault of the driver, the Department of Transportation and private property owners are responsible for signage and/or landscape maintenance. Similarly, both the placement of a commercial marquis and the various objects and machines used during construction can be detrimental to the visibility of those on the road.
Realizing all of the possible scenarios that come with a driver’s visual impairment is the job of an accident reconstruction expert. It is necessary, then, for proper documentation and/or photographs to be taken. This allows for a better defense to be built up for the victims.
Such attentions are not typically accounted for in traffic accident reports. Thus, it is important that, when in an accident with extenuating circumstances, a team of professionals is involved for the preservation of the evidence. As always, it is best to contact an experienced Florida personal injury attorney as soon as possible. If the insurance companies do not delay in obtaining legal advice, neither should you.
The most important thing to remember after being in an accident is that time is of the essence. Gathering an accurate recording of the incident and getting in touch with a reliable motor vehicle accident attorney are vital to your potential case and recovery. Specifically, claims against the government, while taking less time in the state of Florida, do necessitate early notification.
