Causes of I-95 Motor Vehicle Accidents in Melbourne

Any number of things can cause a car accident; however, when it comes to a congested roadway like I-95 there are usually specific occurrences that pop up more often than others. When considering the cause of your accident there two main categories the factors fall under:

Reckless or Negligent Drivers

  • Speeding
  • Disregard for Conditions
  • Failure to retrieve debris
  • Neglecting to signal for lane change
  • Crossing over median or other lane division

Poor Road Design and Maintenance

  • Grooved or overly-slick pavement
  • Potholes or uneven pavement
  • Improper water drainage
  • Sharp or poorly-graded curves
  • Obscured signs
  • Lack of guard rails

Though it is possible to be in an accident due to factors from just one category, it is usually a combination of both the road conditions and the reckless or negligent actions of the other driver that cause motor vehicle accidents on I-95. An experienced Florida personal injury attorney can help you determine responsibility percentage and what actions to take with regards to obtaining compensation.

Florida Pure Comparative Negligence and I-95 Accidents

It is important to note that even if you believe you committed actions that contributed to the accident, that doesn't automatically mean you are not entitled to compensation. Florida is a pure comparative negligence state, meaning that you are entitled to the same percentage of damages for which you were not at fault for the accident.

For instance, if the judge or jury determines that the other driver was 70% at fault for the accident and you were only 30% at fault, you could be entitled to compensation for 70% of your damages. In a case where your damages are $100,000 that would mean your maximum benefit is $70,000. The process of proving fault percentage often involves an extensive investigation, which can be performed by an experienced Brevard County I-95 car accident attorney.
