It can be easy for motorists to forget about standard safety precautions when it comes to driving, especially if they haven’t driven regularly for some time.
LOS ANGELES (PRWEB) July 06, 2020
A June 7 article on KUSI News reports on a fatal crash in Fallbrook, California where a car drove off Interstate 15 before rolling 150 feet down a slope. One injured woman is expected to recover; however, another individual was pronounced dead at the scene. The report states that it’s unclear who the driver or passenger was and the California Highway Patrol is investigating the cause of the incident. Los Angeles-based personal injury firm Legal Defenders at the Law Offices of Burg & Brock says that unfortunately, traffic collisions and accidents can occur at any time on the road, which is why drivers should always give their full attention while behind the wheel.
Legal Defenders says that, as cities begin to open up again following the months-long stay at home orders, it can be easy for motorists to forget about standard safety precautions when it comes to driving, especially if they haven’t driven regularly for some time. The firm says that regardless of one’s driving experience, they should be sure that they are fully focused on the task at hand for the safety of themselves, their passengers, and fellow motorists.
The Southern California law firm adds that something as simple as allowing for an extra five to ten minutes in one’s commute can help ensure that a destination is reached safely. By allotting the extra time, drivers won’t need to rush or speed in the event of traffic or other. The firm says that, when motorists are under stress, the risk of causing or being involved in a collision increase. From paying less attention to their surroundings to potentially losing control of the vehicle, the law firm says that a single miscalculated move can cause a collision, injuries, and far too often, fatalities.
The consequences of this are dismal for all concerned, and not just the victims, the firm says. Legal Defenders says that it has seen numerous cases where parties found responsible for wrecks were financially and personally devastated all due to a careless decision that ultimately had lifelong effects on all involved. From physical injuries and property damage to medical bills, the financial and mental toll that a car crash can result in are never worth the risk of distracted or reckless driving. Legal Defenders stresses that this is why it’s of the utmost importance to always remain vigilant while on the road.
