DOKAZANE POVREDE PRI BRZINI OD 2.49 MILJA NA SAT

Nekoliko istrašivanja pokazuju različitA “nevidljive” pourede koja se mogu pojaviti u vašem tijelu nakon što je očito neozbiljna zlokobna

 

Jedna od najčešćih i neugodnih situacija s kojima se svakodnevno suočavamo u polju osobnih ozljeda jest da ljudi podcjenjuju potencijalnu opasnost od ozljeda u nesrećama s niskim brzinama; uzimajući u obzir da su medicinski zapisi u toj zemlji ogromno skupi i da je dobrobit uvijek neprocjenjivo.

“Povreda vratne kičme može da se desi pri malim brzinama kao što su 2.49 milja na sat, zavisno od faktora kao što su karakteristike vozila, mjesto udara, lično fizičko stanje, spol i dob”, potvrđuju stručnjaci forenzičnog inžinjerstva iz http://www.technology-assoc.com

Čak i sudari pri maloj brzini i sudari u kojima ne nastane vidljiva fizička šteta mogu prouzrokovati tjelesne povrede. One mogu da se pojave nekoliko dana ili čak sedmica kasnije. Ako se ne liječe na vrijeme, te povrede i bol mogu da prerastu u kronične.

Neke od simptona koje možete doživjeti nakon nesreće s malom brzinom mogu se pojaviti nakon dana događaja i mogu uključivati:

• glavobolju/mučninu/vrtoglavicu

• utrnulost/trnce u rukama

• teškoće kod gutanja

• slabu koncentraciju

• bol u vilici

• zvonjenje u ušima, te drugo

Autori i stručnjaci u biomehanici, Szabo i Welcher, objašnjavaju: “Potpuno je moguće i čak relativno uobičajeno da ljudi zadobiju povredu vrata pri malim brzinama budući da povredu vrata uzrokuje nagli, iznenadni udar prilikom sudara.”

Brault i Brault (1998), u istom polju, potpuni: “Povrede takođe mogu da se desu bez štete na vozilu, što znači da su putnici, a ne vozilo apsorbirali udar.”

Is just a simple matter of science. Physical laws explains it very well through G-Force theory: “sudar pri brzini od 9 milja na sat znači da vrat treba da izdrži snagu od 170 funti u samo nekoliko sekundi.”

Ovdje stvari funkcjoniraju drukčije

U Americi normalno je uzeti advokata, čak i za male nesreće. To se očekuje. Zakon vas štiti od nemarnih radnji. Važna činjenica je to svaki automobil na cestama na Floridi mora biti osiguran. To osiguranje vas štiti na razne načine. Osigurajuće društvo to takođe zna i može pokušati iskoristiti vaš nedostatak iskustva.

Čak i ako ne vjerujete da ste ozlijeđeni, traženje savjeta od odvjetnika pomoći će vam da bolje razumijete svoja prava i što biste trebali učiniti da biste dobili optimalan ishod vašem slučaju. Može biti da ste ozlijeđeni i trebat će vam pomoć da biste dobili naknadu za svoje ozljede ili ne biste mogli biti ozlijeđeni i trebat će vam savjeti kako postupati s drugim aspektima slučaja.

U svakoj situaciji, uvijek je u vašem najboljem interesu da vam odvjetnik pruži procjenu vašeg slučaja kako bi vam pružio smjernice. Osiguravajuća društva gledaju na sebe i doživljavaju ljude koji ih gledaju, a za sudarom je potrebno i netko na vašoj strani.

Razumijevanje vaše pokrivenosti

  • PIP (zaštita od lične povrede): pokriva 80% vaših troškova ili do USD 10.000 (obavezno, minimalno pokriće koje zahtjeva zakon).
  • BI (tjelesna povreda): pokriva povrede nanesene drugim ljudima i štiti vašu imovinu i iznosu od USD 10.000 i više.
  • UM / UIM: štiti vas od vozača bez osiguranja u iznosu od USD 10.000 i više.

-          Slojevito UM: dopušta vam da dodate osiguranje UM sa ostalih vozila u domaćinstvu da bi imali dodatno osiguranje.

Put Away Your Phone

Let’s do an experiment. Go to your local public football field, make a path from one end to the other, and set up a few obstacles along the way. Now, blindfold yourself and try to walk the length of the path without hitting any of the obstacles.

Think you can do it?

Well, that’s actually what you’re doing every time you send or receive a text at 55 mph.

In 2014, 3,179 people were killed, and 431,000 were injured in motor vehicle crashes involving distracted drivers.

Now, distractions come in many forms. Eating, putting on makeup, using a navigation system, or adjusting the radio are all common distractions during driving. But, texting or otherwise using a phone, is certainly one of the most prevalent distractions.

In fact, a 2015 study found that a third of drivers admitted to texting while driving, and three-quarters said they had seen others do it!

Young drivers are particularly susceptible to distracted driving. Among drivers age 15 to 19 involved in fatal crashes, 10% were reported as distracted at the time of the collision. And, a whopping 38% of all twentysomething drivers involved in a fatal crash were using their cell phones!

We all know texting while driving is dangerous, but did you know it can also damage your case if you’re ever in a car accident? During personal injury litigation, all cell phone records are discoverable. And because Florida is a comparative negligence state, even if you weren’t the cause of the crash, you can be held partially liable for the crash if it’s found that you were using your phone at the time.

Also, texting while driving is a secondary traffic infraction in Florida. That means that if you’re pulled over for any other reason (like speeding, not wearing a seatbelt, or even a broken tail light) and the officer catches you texting, you can receive an additional citation.

So, the moral of this story is:

Don’t Text and Drive!

texting it can wait

It’s dangerous. It’s illegal. It’s just plain stupid.

And, maybe don’t walk the length of a football field blindfolded. You might trip.

Why You Need UM Coverage?

If you live in the state of Florida, you probably know that Florida drivers are required to carry $10,000 in personal injury protection and property damage liability. But, the unfortunate truth is that 23% of Florida drivers are uninsured. And, even for those who carry the minimum insurance, this may not be enough to cover the damages from all auto accidents. That’s why it’s important for drivers to carry uninsured/underinsured motorist coverage.
Florida law requires every motor vehicle liability insurance policy issued in Florida to include an equal amount of uninsured motorist coverage, unless the insured makes a specific rejection of the UM coverage.

UM rejection form

While filling out all of the paperwork for your auto insurance policy, you’ll probably see a form that looks like the one above. This is the UM coverage rejection form. If you check any of the boxes on this form, you will be rejecting UM coverage or choosing coverage that is less than your liability coverage. Your premium may be lower, but you are losing valuable coverage that would protect you in an accident with an uninsured or underinsured driver.
Here at Rudez PL, we see many clients with excellent cases receive little to no money in damages, because the at-fault driver simply does not have enough insurance. But with UM coverage, we can seek damages from the client’s own insurance company to make up for what should have been provided by the at-fault driver.

And that is why I recommend that all Florida drivers carry UM coverage in the amount of their liability coverage. The slightly higher premium will be more than worth it if you ever find yourself in the unfortunate situation of being involved in a collision caused by an uninsured motorist.

Avoid the No-Zone

Have you ever checked your mirrors for oncoming traffic and begun to change lands, only to suddenly realize there’s a car right next to you? This happens because your car has a blind spot, an area outside of the car where other vehicles and objects are not visible. This situation can be a scary moment when you’re driving your car, but thankfully it’s often easy to correct and no collision occurs.

Truck Accidents

Semi-trucks also have blind spots and unlike your car, it’s not always easy for a large truck to correct itself if it’s encroaching on a vehicle that wasn’t clearly visible.

Blind spots on a tractor-trailer are often referred to as the “No-Zone” and they take up far more space than your passenger vehicle’s blind spots.

The “No-Zone” also includes areas where other cars are too close to allow the truck driver to stop or turn safely.

The most effective way to avoid a collision with a semi-truck or tractor trailer, is to avoid the “No-Zone.”

Most Dangerous State for Pedestrians

With few crosswalks, disconnected sidewalks, and many high speed roadways, it’s no surprise that Florida isn’t the safest place in the country for pedestrians. But, did you know that since 2009, Florida has ranked as the number one most dangerous state for pedestrians, according to Smart Growth America.

Every year Smart Growth America publishes a list of the most dangerous metropolitan areas, and last year, eight of the top ten cities were in Florida.

Most dangerous metro areas for pedestrians

Across the state, there were 8,936 pedestrian accidents in 2016. Often the victims of pedestrian accidents are from the most vulnerable parts of the population: adults over 65, racial minorities, and those from low-income backgrounds.
While being a pedestrian in a metropolitan area will always put you at risk, there are ways to keep your and your family a little safer:

  • Be aware of your surroundings. This goes beyond just looking both ways before crossing the street. When walking in a high traffic area, put away your phone and take out at least one earbud. Your eyes and ears need to be available to survey the area and check for any possible hazards.
  • Make yourself more visible. When it’s dark or rainy, stay in well-lit areas whenever possible. If your usual route doesn’t have many street lights, try wearing reflective clothing. And whatever you do, don’t wear all black at night.
  • Follow the rules of the road. Even though you’re not driving, walking with the flow of traffic and obeying all traffic signals will keep you safer.

And drivers, you can help keep pedestrians safer by following posted speed limits, turning on your headlights when visibility is low, and using extra caution while driving in areas with heavy pedestrian traffic.

Pušenje i rastresena vožnja

Pušenje je jedna od mnogih stvari koje nas ovih dana ometaju u vožnji. Ometanje u vožnji je sve ono što nam odvlači pažnju ili ruke s volana i usmjerava ih na nešto drugo. Jedan od vrlo bitnih i uobičajenih oblika rastresene vožnje današnjice je pušenje.

Pušenje nas ometa u vožnji na brojne načine koji uključuju: vizualno ometanje, za ljude koji traže cigarate i upaljač; kognitivno ometanje, kada vozač misli isključivo o tome kako da nađe i zapali cigaretu; ručno ometanje, kada su vozačeve ruke zauzete izvlačenjem cigarete iz kutije, paljenjem cigarete i uklanjanjem pepela. Sve ovo vozaču dodatno odvlači pažnju s najvažnije zadaće koju ima, a to je upravljanje vozilom koje se brzo kreće.

Nedavno ispitivanje koje je sproveo Nacionalni institut za zdravstvo pokazalo je da pušenje tokom vožnje više ometa vozače nego upotreba mobitela. Pušač je u prosjeku bio odsutan pažnjom 12 sekundi, a korisnici mobitela 10.6 sekundi dok su i jedni i drugi koristili svoje predmete.

Faktor ometanja još je ozbiljniji za vozače kamiona. Federalna uprava za sigurnost motornih prevoznika (FMCSA) sprovela je petogodišnje ispitivanje o opasnostima pušenja dok vozači voze kamion i zaključila da je pušenje uzrok 0.9 posto sudara zbog rastresene vožnje. To iznosi oko 12.780 kamionskih nesreća u periodu od 5 godina pokrivenih ispitivanjem.
Iako je nepažljiva vožnja zbog upotrebe mobitela u porastu, pušenje i dalje predstavlja ozbiljnu prijetnju mnogim vozačima na cesti. Pušenje tijekom vožnje toliko je uobičajeni fenomen da mnogi od nas u tome ne vide ništa loše. Međutim, pušenje je i dalje jedan od mnogih faktora koji doprinose nesigurnoj vožnji i automobilskim nesrećama. Ako ste ikada bili žrtva sudara kojeg je prouzrokovao rastreseni vozač, nazovite Rudez PL na broj 844-Rudez Law.
